Extra! Extra! Mayfair Games making a newspaper publishing game
I admit, I’m intrigued. Journalism is near and dear in my house. The 2-5 player game places fledgling newspapers against each other to see who get the best stories, manage reporters and ultimately survive.
A teen turns her high school internship into a game dev job
I admit it, including this story pushes my highlight more women in game development/design agenda. Today’s story is of a teenage girl who started in game development as a intern in quality control who turned a great idea into a career.
And now for something cute: Yak Dash
Yak Dash Horns of Glory comes to iOS. It looks like a fun 2D game where players ride yaks and race. Characters are customizable, allowing for what looks like some diverse characters.
That’s it for this week’s roundup. As always, feel free to let me know if I missed anything, but jumping into the comments. Have a great week and play on!
