News: Ratings System Prototype

A while ago, I mentioned a ratings system, including a special award, the Wulf’s Choice Award, for exceptional games and utilities. I’ve started developing a prototype system, which I hope will present a fair assessment of the reviewed games/utilities. It’s still an embryo, but this is how it’s progressing with a few ideas I’ve been playing with. The above ratings are for games only, with a similar, separate ratings system for tools and utilities on its way. I’ll also be working on a high quality award for the Wulf’s Choice Award, maybe with an additional option for visitors to rate the games/utilities themselves. Then, monthly, the highest scoring games/utilities will…

Update: 3D Resources Fun

As my foray into Daz3D and Bryce continues, I’m having a lot of fun creating 3D content and scenes. I realized that Daz3D has changed a lot since I last used it – I think version 2 or 3 (it’s now up to 4.6). I also recently acquired Bryce and Poser, although I’ve not really done anything with them yet. These aren’t particularly good, but I’ve added them here to give a rough idea of where I’m intending to go. Although Daz3D is easy to use, I’m still going through as many tutorials as I can. Getting the resources – whether charsets, portraits or battlers – just right can be…

Fortune’s Tavern: Fantasy Tavern Sim – Funded!

Fortune’s Tavern Congratulations to the Fortune’s Tavern team! The project has been successfully funded! I’m looking forward to playing the game and to reviewing it on this blogsite. It’s scheduled for release in the second quarter of next year but, as a backer of their Kickstarter project, I’ll receive a copy earlier so will be able to thoroughly playtest it. I was originally interested in the project because of its unique concept. I’ve seen a few similar sim games on Steam, such as Recettear: An Item Shop’s Tale, but never played them. So I decided to contribute towards the Fortune’s Tavern. (Please don’t send me requests to back your project,…

"To The Moon" by Freebird Games

Freebird Games’ To the Moon is an award-winning indie adventure RPG about two doctors who travel through a dying man’s memories to fulfill his last wish: To go to the moon. Evocative, intriguing and compelling. Heart-warming in places, tearful in others, but with a plot that kind of unravels bit by bit and just the right amount of humour injected in it to balance it out. The music is awesome, especially the piano theme music! It also has the game Whack-A-Mole, which I used to be good at (my record is 95%!). Highly recommended! You can buy it on Steam, along with the beautiful To The Moon soundtrack.
