More than a Damsel in a Dress: A Response to Anita Sarkeesian’s first video. I like her views and how she portrays them, so I thought it would be worth sharing this video.
SURICATE - La Vie Sexuelle des Jeux Vidéo / Sex in Video Games. It sounds like it may be crude, but it is actually a very funny video. Don’t worry about the French, there’s English subtitles. :)
This guy’s girlfriend loves Super Mario Bros., so he came up with a creative way to propose to her. Check it out!
If you love games like Super Mario Brothers, then this Kickstarter project is for you! Another Castle combines classic platforming gameplay with the randomness of a roguelike. It’ll be available for multiple platforms if it gets funded: Wii U, PC, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, & OUYA. You play as Andy, a dude who’s looking for a random item, whether it be a kick ass magical sword, a wizard hat, or royalty. To find the item you must run, jump, and fight your way through a randomly generated castle. When you beat the game, you sadly won’t get the item, as it’s always in another castle. Instead, the item is now unlocked and can be found in future playthroughs of the game. It sounds really awesome, so if you’re sold on the idea please help contribute to the project here or if you need some more convincing, try an early prototype of the game here.
Check out some pictures from the levels:
