Glitchspace: Hands-On

Glitchspace: Hands-On

Sep 9, 2014

Glitchspace excites me mentally. I love the idea of programming but didn’t really have the capacity to learn it or use it meaningfully. Glitchspace uses semi-simple coding/mathematical terms and lets you play around with them to a certain degree. It’s still early access but is highly promising, in a way that made me play it through in its current...

Hands-On: Habitat

Now there are two recent releases related to it. First...

Jul 10, 2013

Interstellar Marines is a game that we mentioned a little while back after its appearance on Steam Early Access, and following a Twitch Stream where they announced a rather ludicrous amount of free keys for a planned give-away, they have now pinned down a more realistic and fair (on them) give-away.
