GYGO Mobile: Apple’s New Commission Rules Bring Back Epic, but They Still Suck

GYGO Mobile: Apple’s New Commission Rules Bring Back Epic, but They Still Suck

Hello and welcome to another Wednesday, fellow mobile gamers! I have rediscovered FrenchGuys’ Twenty for roughly the thirtieth time in my life and am knee-deep in swiping numbers again. I’ve been playing a lot of the “Thirty” mode lately, and the game’s frenetic pace occupies so much of my immediate energy that I don’t have time for thoughts. Ideal!

Anyway, here’s what’s been happening in mobile games since we last spoke. (more…)

Building Healthy Habits in Forage Friends with Pie Trap Studios’ Priscilla Firstenberg

My first impression of Pie Trap Studios’ upcoming game Forage Friends was not “Wow, what a cute mobile game!” It was, in fact, “Holy shit, look at those cute baskets!” (more…)

GYGO Mobile: My Love Island Stories Are in Shambles

Hello, fellow mobile gamers. I smashed my phone screen to pieces last month and lost all my progress in Lovelink! Don’t do that. Now I’m back at it with a much more controlled approach, which is to say I’m no longer matching with everybody under the sun to farm gems off of them, and am instead working slowly through the stories I like. Unfortunately, I left my romance with Cianán Ó Faoláin, a babe who is also a dullahan, on my old phone and haven’t gotten him on my new one to match with. If you spot him, please pass him my number. Thanks. (more…)

GYGO Mobile: Mobile Games News by a Person Who Has Never Played Fortnite

Hello from your favorite trash mobile gamer! I’m here to bring you the latest news in the mobile gaming sphere, despite never having played Fortnite or Genshin Impact. Generally, I think it’s not cute to be purposefully ignorant of something, but the sheer amount of trashy mobile games I play juxtaposed against my refusal to play the two biggest mobile games is in fact quite funny to me. I hope we all enjoy my struggle to explain what’s going on in the world of Fortnite. (more…)

Mystic Messenger Trash: Behaving Badly in V’s Route

Mystic Messenger Trash: Behaving Badly in V’s Route

Welcome back to Mystic Messenger Trash, where I chronicle playing Mystic Messenger. The following contains spoilers for V’s good and normal routes in the game, passing mentions of the bad endings, and general in-game lore that you learn outside of Another Story. There are also some spoilers for Rika Behind Story.

Another Story, which encompasses both V’s and Ray/Saeran’s routes, takes place six months after Rika’s “death” (unlike the routes in Casual Story and Deep Story, which take place two years after). Another Story is basically an alternative universe of Mystic Messenger, where the player-character shows up earlier than in the Casual and Deep Stories. For the sake of length, I’m going to assume a baseline level of MM knowledge. (more…)

The Four Best Romance Club Stories To Play First

The Four Best Romance Club Stories To Play First

Content note: this piece mentions suicide. This piece also contains minor spoilers for various Romance Club stories.

In 2019, I was scrolling through Apple’s App Store in search of an interactive story mobile game similar to Pixelberry’s Choices. I had wanted to play Choices since its conception, when I used to watch playthroughs of some of the stories on YouTube. However, my problem is that I’ve always found the diamond choices to be extremely expensive. I’m not interested in having to watch numerous ads and then wait for hours to mine for free diamonds, so I feel that I can’t fully enjoy the app’s stories. There have also been complaints from fans about how the quality of the app’s story outputs has been dwindling. In fact, I had tried playing another mobile game, Chapters: Interactive Stories, but found the stories badly written. (more…)
