Doctor Entertainment’s multiplayer custom vehicular combat game, Gear Up is now out of Steam’s Early Access program.

The developer, Doctor […]

Twin-stick shooter Crimsonland’s “thousands of aliens, giant spiders, and more are on the attack…” on Linux. Crimsonland was originally released in 2003, and this is the hugely updated version originally released early in June 2014.

Early Accessed: The Body Changer

Friday 30th of January 2015 12:06:58 AM
Developer TheShortAndTheTall have had their third-person action puzzler The Body Changer in Steam’s Early Access program and it’s now available for Linux. I had a chance to play it and it is interesting although I’m not sure how fitting the “metroidvania” description is as it seems the developers aren’t either. What it does do well […]

Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy Remastered Released

Thursday 29th of January 2015 06:44:43 PM
Aspyr is on a roll, and now they’re doing remasters. This time it’s Quantic Dream’s Fahrenheit. Or as I knew it here in the US, Indigo Prophecy. In addition to updating the graphics, and adding proper controller support, Aspyr has also decided to mash the names together with a colon. Fahrenheit is a weird adventure […]

Grim Fandango Remastered Released

Tuesday 27th of January 2015 05:44:14 PM
It’s entirely possible that you were born after Tim Schafer’s adventure masterpiece, Grim Fandango, was originally released 17 years ago. If that’s the case, school sucks but here is some good news. Grim Fandango has been re-released with updated visuals, music, and the best part is that the tank controls are now entirely optional. Grim […]

  • Android Candy: Intercoms
    Ever since my "tiny $20 tablet" project (see my Open-Source Classroom column in the March 2015 issue), I've been looking for more and more cool things to do with cheap Android devices. Although the few obvious ones like XBMC or Plex remotes work well, I've recently found that having Android devices around the house means I can gain back an old-school ability that went out of style in the late 1980s—namely, an intercom system.
  • There's a wild prank hidden in Google Maps that insults Apple in the most childishly inappropriate way
    Rawalpindi is a vibrant Pakistani city known for its bazaars, ancient ruins, and array of religious shrines. But if you pay it a visit on Google Maps, you're going to notice something very unusual on the outskirts of the city — the Android "droid" mascot urinating on the Apple logo.
  • There's an Android bot peeing on an Apple logo on Google Maps
    Sick of all the Apple Watch news today? You're in luck, because we have something completely different for you. An image of an Android mascot, also known as an Android bot or Bugdroid, peeing on an Apple logo has been discovered on Google Maps.
  • An Android robot is peeing on an Apple logo in Google Maps
  • An Android is urinating on the Apple logo in Google Maps (update)
    Google and Apple have always had their differences, but a new Easter egg inside Google Maps has just taken their rivalry to a whole new level. As spotted by Team Android, if you head to these coordinates with the regular Map view enabled, you'll see Google's iconic Android mascot taking a leak on the Apple logo. At the moment, it's unclear who created this little piece of mischief and whether Google is taking action. But if this hidden message is any indication, it was snuck through by a member of the public using Google's Map Maker service, rather than a Google employee. Regardless, it's a crazy (and pretty hilarious) addition that's sure to rile some of the employees in Cupertino. Shots fired!
  • Sony's Android TV-powered 4K televisions are ridiculously thin
    Four models from Sony’s 2015 Android TV-powered 4K television range are now available for pre-order, with shipping to begin in May. The Japanese electronics giant unveiled its 4K TV lineup for 2015 at the Consumer Electronics Show in January, but kept pricing and release information to itself, only saying the new sets would be available sometime in the spring. Those details are finally here and the TVs themselves aren’t far off.
  • Android Wear v1.1 APK has Apple references in it, but when is iOS support coming?
    That Google is working on iOS support for Android Wear is nearly undeniable at this point, but even more evidence has surfaced in case you aren’t a believer. We peeked inside the latest Android Wear update APK to see what hidden bits were swarming about, and we came across some very interesting references.
  • 5 Things to Expect from the Nexus 5 Android 5.1.1 Release
    A few weeks ago, an Android 5.1.1 update mysteriously appeared alongside an update for Google’s Android SDK. Earlier this week, Google finally confirmed the Nexus Android 5.1.1 release with an update for its Nexus Player. With an Android 5.1.1 update now on the minds of Nexus users, particularly Nexus 5 users dealing with Android 5.0 Lollipop problems, we want to take a look at what we expect from the Nexus 5 Android 5.1 release from Google.
