Get Your Game On Wednesday
Happy Wednesday, gaming lovelies! Fall brings us the the new television season and big movies. This year, I’ve noticed an influx of game companions, for example The Martian and Heroes Reborn. I’m tempted to check them out, but I’m not sure. If you’re playing a tie-in game, let me know what you think. Now, on to the news!
A new tabletop card game by Leah Gilliam was a hit at this year’s No Quarter exhibition. One of the goals of the game is to build empathy by introducing people to a lifestyle they might not completely understand. There don’t appear to be many details about the game. Fingers crossed we’ll keep hearing more.
A new year, a new operating system for Apple devices. Unfortunately, the new upgrade for iOS 9 made some of the most popular games including Bioshock, Back to the Future, and The Wolf Among Us incompatible. While the bigger studios are working on updates, there are some games that might not make it to the next level.
Using LARP as a way of immersion, a Danish boarding school is teaching history via interactive adventures.
In an emotional letter, Jessica Curry writes about leaving the game studio due to personal health concerns as well as the ongoing industry-wide sexist attitudes she has encountered. Although she will continue to compose music for the games, she’ll be working on new adventures outside of the game industry.
That’s it for this week! Until next week, happy gaming!
