Happy Wednesday! Get Your Game On is a round-up of gaming news every Wednesday. What games are you playing lately? Do you have thoughts about video games, tabletop games, or game-related media—comics based on games? Fashion based on games? Casual cosplay?—that you’ve been itching to write? Consider pitching us!

I just started Adorable Home, a free game available on iOS and Android, because all of my friends are addicted to it. My main motivation to play it is because the animal visitors you might meet include a koala, a fox, and a deer!

Let us know on Twitter what games you’re currently playing and what games you’re looking forward to! Here’s news we’re thinking about this week:
