It’s another week of games and another week of games news, and it seems like there’s been a recurring pattern in the industry lately that I can’t quite put my finger on… (more…)
Elvie somehow finds bliss in purposefully complicating the art of storytelling and undertaking the painful practice of animation.

Hello and happy Wednesday! I’ve been recovering from PAX West for what feels like ages, especially since I haven’t had time to write up my experience there yet. When not attending PAX West, I’ve been dabbling in Get in the Car, Loser!, the JRPG-inspired joy that is Love Conquers All Games’ latest game. Except when I’m playing a game for a review I should also be writing. Except when I’m playing Regency Solitaire. Yes, I still play Regency Solitaire. Find me a better Solitaire. You can’t!
Anyway, here’s what’s been happening in games while I fall further and further behind on self-imposed deadlines. (more…)

Welcome back to Get Your Game On! My name is Zainabb and I’ll be your guide through this week’s gaming news. My brain and body have been mush lately from sickness and hot weather so I haven’t been able to do much gaming. However, I did build a 1980s-themed high school in The Sims that I’m extremely proud of, and I’ve also been watching playthroughs of The Mortuary Assistant, which has some great scares I would never be able to handle playing through myself. Just call me a pro gamer.

Hello and welcome to Get Your Game On. My name is Maddi, and this week I am obsessing over Knotwords, a new game by Zach Gage and Jack Schlesinger that’s kind of like a crossword where you get letters instead of clues. It’s part word scramble and part logic puzzle, which is like candy for my little monkey brain. If you’ve been playing anything good recently, tell us about it on Twitter, or, if you’re a member of our Patreon at the Sega Genesis tier or higher, in our Discord! Alright, on to the news. (more…)
