Get Your Game On Wednesday

Howdy, gaming lovelies! As Halloween approaches, I’ve been scoping out DIY costume ideas. I came across this Hungry Hungry Hippos one that makes me giggle. I think I still own a copy of that game.

Cloud Chasers now available

Looking for a new mobile game? Cloud Chasers is a steampunk-styled immigration journey of a girl and her father. By Blindflug Studios, creators of the award-winning game First Strike, the Swiss team includes female developer, Tabea Iseli.

The game Mafia (aka Werewolf) becomes a dystopian sci-fi movie

Inspired by the popular game was created back in the 80s, the movie is set in a near future dystopian Russia.

I’ll leave you with this thought about the Louis Vuitton show from Paris fashion: since when did LED screens, flashing bulbs, leather and chunky shoes become “techno-gamer tough girl”?

Until next week, happy gaming!
