The elderly rarely feature as the protagonist of a video game. I mean, it’s hard to imagine a kindly old man blasting aliens or chainsawing zombies.
But the peaceful, gorgeous, easy-to-play iOS title ($4.99, also available on Google Play and Steam) Old Man’s Journey will make you rethink the kind of stories that games can tell. And it will also definitely fill you with the burning need to call the old man in your life, whether father or grandfather, right away to tell him how much you love him.
Described as a “soul-searching puzzle adventure,” you embark on a wordless journey across memories, dream-like landscapes, and quiet moments of reflection. With an art style inspired by postcards from real places in France, Italy, Spain and Greece, you must toy around with the hills and buildings in the handcrafted 2D terrain to clear a path forward for the titular Old Man.

Zynga is launching the “biggest evolution” of its mobile words game, with the hopes of luring more users and buoying its bottom line
While Australia’s renowned natural beauty is often plastered on postcards and featured in the occasional film, it’s something yet to be represented in the gaming world.
Paperbark, set to release early next year initially on iOS, will change all that. The game focuses on the life of a sleepy wombat exploring Australian bushland, discovering all kinds of flora and fauna along the way.
The game was originally the final year project of RMIT game design students Ryan Boulton, Nina Bennett and Terry Burdak. All three grew up in regional Victoria, and wanted to focus on creating a game that looked like an Australia they knew. Read more…
If you’re in Australia and waiting for the much hyped Animal Crossing mobile release next month, your wait is already over.
Nintendo’s Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is already available in down under, the same day the game was announced.
We’ve confirmed that the game is downloadable and fully playable already in Australia, a month ahead of the “late November” release that Nintendo pointed to.
When you log in, you’ll get to choose your look, before you pick your destination, and other ways to customise your world.

Before a “Dungeons & Dragons” player joins a game, before she finds her first sword or slays her first gnoll, she must create a character who has a race and a class. Will she skulk in the shadows as a gnome rogue? Sally forth with her human paladin? Reave up and down the Sword Coast […]
“When is my rest?,” he begged. I pulled him close to me, dominated his weakened mind, put him in my orc stable, and immediately shut down the game.
What’s better than another episode of Conan O’Brien’s “Clueless Gamer” segment? Having a hilarious guest who also happens to be in the game, as well.
This time, he had The Big Sick‘s Kumail Nanjiani as co-pilot while they explored the upcoming Xbox game Middle-earth: Shadow of War.
It’s all good fun ripping on the characters until Nanjiani reveals, cringing, that he voiced “Dugz the Agonizer,” one of the enemy orcs that they were about to face.
Nanjiani was right to cringe. Because once Dugz shows up on screen and speaks, it sounds exactly like Nanjiani himself — not at all like an orc.
“You didn’t change your voice at all! Did you do that over the phone? What the hell was that!” yells O’Brien, before delivering the final stinger: “He should be called Kumail the Nanjiani.” Read more…

Finally, I tried virtual reality. It was amazing and didn’t even make me hurl.
I had a grand plan, dear reader. I planned to shed quantitative light on the problem of income inequality. And I planned to do it with a million games of web-scraped Scrabble tournament data. But, like in Scrabble, where the best-laid plans sometimes leave you holding a rack full of vowels and nowhere to play […]
