GYGO Mobile: Emulators Come to the App Store

GYGO Mobile: Emulators Come to the App Store

Hello again, fellow mobile gamers! I’ve been taking a loosely enforced break from social media, which means my screen time is largely focused on my great love of reading articles and playing mobile games. A GYGO or so ago, I wrote about Longleaf Valley, a merge game that plants trees when players accrue enough tokens. I suggested it might be my new Lily’s Garden, and while that not might be exactly true (the plot doesn’t grab me quite as much) it’s a great little game to pass time during commercial breaks. It’s just organizing, folks. We know I love organizing.

I hope you had time to grab the itch.io Bundle for Palestinian Relief, which raised over $575,000 for the Palestine Children’s Relief Fund (PCRF). If you missed the bundle, you can still donate to the PCRF at their website. You could also consider eSims for Gaza, which provides people in the region with a way to communicate with their families and people outside the region. If you like a little extra for your donation, Cartoonist Cooperative has a program where you can send them proof of purchasing an eSim for Gaza in exchange for art.

Here’s what’s been happening in the mobile gaming world! (more…)

GYGO Mobile: Lady Gaga Corrects Her Spelling of Fortnite

Hello again, mobile gamers! I have admittedly not been mobile gaming all that much in the past few weeks after a series of ridiculous events and being down with the flu for an entire week. Don’t get the flu! I had a flu shot and everything! Just don’t do it!! You’ll be so tired you won’t even be capable of disappearing into Baldur’s Gate 3. You’ll spend eight or so hours watching the first season of Bridgerton and feel unable to figure out why you did that even though you couldn’t stand Daphne. Just say no, folks.

Fellow GYGO writers have done an amazing job providing resources to learn more about the ongoing atrocities the Israeli government is committing against the people of the Gaza strip. In addition to the many resources they’ve provided for learning more and supporting individuals and organizations that provide aid to those in the region, I also recommend Operation Olive Branch, a compilation of links, fundraising opportunities, and more for people in need, and the Stop Gaza Genocide Toolkit, which contains action items and information you can visit and revisit as often as you like. I also find Crips for Palestine, a newsletter of digital actions for disabled people and allies written by our own Zainabb Hull, extremely helpful and informative.

Here’s what’s been going on in the world of mobile games while I wasn’t paying any attention whatsoever. (more…)

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…)

GYGO: That’s a Lot of Games

GYGO: That’s a Lot of Games

The past couple of weeks have been chock full of back-to-back showcases and endless announcements about what’s next in tech and gaming. Honestly, it’s pretty exhausting to keep track of, and it all comes in light of the fact that there’s very little hope that E3 will ever return to its former glory. With publishers and developers taking it into their own hands to show off their stuff, there’s no rest for the weary when it comes to finishing off that ever-growing games library!

…I’m talking about myself, but anyway: here’s the news. (more…)

GYGO: Peely’s Day in Court

Howdy and welcome to this week’s installment of Get Your Game On! It’s Maddi, checking in with all the latest and not-so-greatest goings on in the video game industry. You will probably be unsurprised to learn that over the last month I have played little other than Hades, but having finished a big part of the main game I am now consumed by the incredibly important task of getting Zagreus a boyfriend. (Although I did play, and recommend, the delightfully dramatic Overboard! by 80 Days creators Inkle.) What have you been up to? Let us know on Twitter, or, if you’re a Sidequest Patron at the Sega Genesis tier or higher, you can tell us about your favorites in our Discord! (more…)
