PvP Update: Cal

Another day, another nonsensical article about something or other.

However, I now have a new office area! Although, it's technically in the same area, just moved about slightly, and a new desk - then another new desk to replace the old new desk, and a new chair (which hasn't arrived yet) to replace my old, very uncomfortable chair, which I'm sat in as I type this, and let me tell you; it's damn uncomfortable. Honestly, it's like an evil genius and a horrific torturer had a baby, who grew up to design the most genius torture device disguised as a chair. Awful, just awful.

Anyway, I've finally found a chair that I like, that didn't involve me selling a kidney to get money for it. And it has 'Racer' in the title, so it's automatically rad as fuck.

I may even paint some stripes on the side.

**EDIT - It arrived! And damn is it comfy!

On the old business side of things, we've been pretty busy over the last few months, and whilst I haven't done one of these update posts for a while, it's been a damn good few months nonetheless.

A few months ago we were contacted by the guys at Solar Crusaders asking us to have a look at their new kickstater game - Solar Crusaders. So we did, and you can read all about Dan's adventure here.

Keeping on the developer front, we were also asked to review/preview some early alpha builds of a few games, which we really, really enjoyed! The first was a really cool twitch action fighting game utilizing the environment and flubby goodness to bring joy and demise to anyone willing to toss their flub around. Created by a team of Students and Alumni in collaboration with Retora Game Studios, the game is Flub Fighter and it's a really fun game! Check out our preview here then head over to their Steam page and give them your money!

Next up is Bleeding Blocks, a 2D arena shooter from Killer Teapot Games, in which two players face off in a single-screen deathmatch, where winning requires more than quick reflexes. Players must use cover and tactics to outsmart the enemy using various ships and insane power-ups. But most of all, that fucking soundtrack man, it's so good! Check out our preview here, then go and throw your money at Killer Teapot Games and grab a copy. They very kindly added us to their website after they enjoyed our video, so thanks again to you guys!

If you're a developer and you have a game you'd like us to look at, then head over to our Developer Hub and get in touch!

Content wise, there really is too much to list here, so instead visit this link where you can see everything that's been going on, but here's the latest stuff:

As you've probably noticed, we've had a bit of a design makeover (again) this time, a really retro 80's synth pop style thing, and we're pretty happy with it, so expect it to stick around for a while! Whilst we're working on updating this site, we have another site, that will primarily be for watching videos, podcasts and visiting our store, whilst this will still have all the media content and reviews, the other site is more streamlined into being straight to the point. It's not live yet, but you can check out our landing page by clicking here.

If you're a regular to the site, you've probably seen the banners for my art portfolio, which if you're interested, can be seen here, and now the store section is done! Well, not done, started, but it's live, and you can browse what's available at the moment, with loads more to follow.
