2012 IGF Pirate Kart


The 2012 IGF Pirate Kart is a group of over 300 games from over 100 people. You can download all the games for free (a 1.4GB download!). The games are more on the indie side and I have to say that that is an amazing feat to have all 300+ games packaged for a 48 […]

Story Hero!


I found out about Story Hero earlier this week thanks to L’Oujevipo. I was really impressed with the game. I didn’t know what to expect and I was blown away by how simple, creative, and fun it is.   In Story Hero the story is told with text on the screen. You know pretty standard […]
