Most of us game lovers (or fanatics) have fantasized about making our own game at one point or another. Because seriously, how awesome would that be? The truth of the matter is, however, that unless you got at least some programming skills your options are pretty limited. I wouldn’t even know where to start. So how does PLAYIR fit into this?
PLAYIR was created by a UK based start-up company of the same name whose goal is to make the game development (a notoriously complicated and time-consuming process) into something simpler and much more accessible using ‘Real Time Cloud Technology.’ Not only did they release their game engine, but they’ve actually designed it as to allow average non-technical people with little to no programming knowledge to create their very own 3D multiplayer games for mobile devices. That means that you could start making a game today. Or right now even! The tools are pretty much handed to you on a plate. It doesn’t get much better than that.
As those of you who follow me on Twitter (@CheeeseToastie) probably know, the delayed launch of the PS4 for Europe left me foaming at the mouth in anticipation, even though there weren’t that many launch titles I was really that excited about. So when I finally received it and after drooling over my beautiful new console for a while, I decided to sample a bunch of the games I’d bought for it, the first being Killzone: Shadow Fall. So imagine my surprise when I discovered that the game that kept drawing me back again and again was the indie title Resogun by Housemarque . At the moment, it’s my favourite game on PS4 hands down. Resogun is an impressive looking and ridiculously addictive sidescrolling shooter that rotates 360 degrees around a central hub. While it’s unrelentingly and unapologetically old school, it’s also refreshingly original and somehow feels like a true next gen experience. Continue reading
Turns out there are some reliable rules at work in Antichamber and working them out really helps – although it makes the other bits even more confusing!
The ball is now rolling as we figure out more and more of the rules of this Escher-esque maze, but as usual moving forwards somehow takes us backwards…

Sooo I’ve had a post prepared for this week, but unfortunately I can’t post it until I receive the info I’m waiting for. So due to circumstances outside of my control, the post is going to have to wait a little bit. It’s ready to go though, so as soon I get what I need the post will go right up on my blog. Hopefully that should happen in the next couple of days. It’s going to be a special one though, so make sure to check back for it!
Fishguns everywhere but are they quick enough to get us through coloured walls? Not a sentence that I ever expected to say…
