After Kickstarter success, Armello hopes to release game next year

By on

At last year’s PAX, I profiled an indie game called Armello by League of Geeks. The game took the traditional card game into an iPad game, with vivid and beautiful graphics to create a fantasy fairytale landscape. Now, it is just more than a year later and we decided to check back in with them. Between the two PAX Australian events, they had a massively successful Kickstarter campaign earlier this […]

HANDS ON: To win at Screencheat, you will have to cheat

By on

You may have seen Adrian and Ashton’s take on Screencheat as part of their article quickly playing some of this year’s Indie Showcase, but I also got a chance to play the game for a couple of minutes. A friend of mine attending the show suggested that I should go play this game, saying it was pretty fun. And I have to agree, it was pretty fun. Screencheat looks like a standard […]

HANDS ON: Wave Wave is brutally hard, but so addictive

By on

When I looked at this game for the first time, I thought Wave Wave wouldn’t be too hard. The basic gist of the game is simply press-hold either the left-half or the right-half of the screen to move, and avoid hitting the walls. Well, I was totally wrong. This game is brutally hard to complete – that’s assuming it has an ending. There so many zigs and zags that you have […]

Every year at every PAX event, they choose a small number of indie developers to be featured as part of their Indie Showcase.

ICYMI: Sync your reading progress between Kindle books and Audible audiobooks with Whispersync for Voice

By on

Time for some Real Talk: reading takes up a lot of time. Seriously, even with my happy-go-lucky uni lifestyle I can hardly get in 1 hour of reading on my Kindle every day, meaning I usually only read around 4 books a year. This is despite the fact that, somehow, I find the time to listen to around 10 hours worth of podcasts every week. But there’s a reason behind that divide: I […]

I can feel the fresh air in Farming Simulator 15’s new trailer

By on

Farming Simulator had been a Twitch/YouTube favourite for some time now, and now Focus Home Interactive, the team behind the game, want to sell another few million copies. If you’ve never played it before, basically, Farming Simulator is what it says on the tin: an open-world game where you manage a farm, with a strangely addictive, but also a sorta complex gameplay system, all built to ‘simulate’ some of the best bits of farming, without the […]

SingStar PS4 Review: Screw The Neighbours

By on

I’m not gonna lie. I’m a bit of a karaoke tragic. Except I’m more of a shy one. Whether it’s in the car, home alone, or in my dreams, singing is my jam. Now, that’s not to say that I’m any good at it, but it’s somehow relaxing, in a weird way. And while I’m fine with neighbours hearing me in the distance, or pedestrians seeing me jamming out in […]

Apple refreshes iPad lineup – includes Touch ID and Apple Pay

By on

After it was accidentally leaked out online by Apple itself yesterday, it has officially confirmed that it will refresh both the iPad Air and iPad mini at its press event earlier today. Both will support the Touch ID fingerprint reader and Apple Pay, bringing them on par with the iPhone. However, since both the new iPad Air and iPad mini do not include NFC, Apple Pay will be limited to just app purchases. The […]

Fundraiser for @evleaks derailed after accusations of fraud

By on

Remember @evleaks? If you are a passionate follower of technology, you would know him as the guy who was really good in leaking out news of upcoming mobile phone devices. In August, Evan Blass – the man behind the account – announced his retirement as he was unable to support himself by leaking phones, especially given he suffers from multiple sclerosis. Being the internet, there was a fundraising effort to raise some […]
