Randonautica is an app that has gained a lot of attraction in the recent months. On the surface it’s an app that takes you on small adventures in your hometown. You open the app, and a random set of coordinates are given to you to go explore the area. But this app has a deeper, darker side to it. It is said to be able to “Glitch the Matrix” in our “simulation”. If you don’t know the Simulation theory, I will link an article at the bottom by a fellow Vocal Media author. This app hit the mainstream after two teens were led to an area by the app, that had human body parts in a suitcase. It was off the shore in Seattle, the remains were identified, but the killer(s) and motive have not yet been. This investigation is still ongoing. I’ll link that article as well. It is said that if you focus on a certain intention, positive or negative, the app will give you the directions to get to that intention. So, me being the scientific person I am, I ran an experiment. With my fiancé Celeste and high school bud Danny, we set out to test this intention theory with the Randonautica app. The kicker is, I told nobody the intentions I was thinking of, and I was thinking of five. Let’s see how many land.
I knew from the moment I watched Bob build a car while Mark attempted to keep his garden safe from the oncoming onslaught of robots that I absolutely wanted, no, NEEDED to get my hands on this game. I'll link the YouTube video, so that I can give credit where credit is due. I definitely recommend watching it. It's absolutely hilarious. Anyway, everything else that happened in Markiplier's videos related to Scrap Mechanic was just an added bonus or icing on the cake, as they say. So as soon as Steam announced their summer savings list and my husband and I saw that Scrap Mechanic was on sale, we immediately jumped on the offer. I have no regrets, well, minus that time that we drove our car off to a warehouse where we died multiple times to robots with spud guns and then got lost for like 40 minutes real time. That's a stretch though; because honestly, despite the chaos that was ensuing right before my very eyes, I was still having a lot of fun even down to the cinematic ending of us making it back to base right as we ran out of gas for our vehicle. And, trust me, we had packed A LOT of gas.
"PitchYaGame is an exciting new platform (live on Twitter) for indie developers and game developers to tweet about their game/s and be heard.
Believe it or not, this game demo was made in 2020.
This was one of the games I reviewed on Ciao back in the day to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Harry Potter series. Whilst I'm still shocked and appauled by the original author's stance on transgendered people. It does hurt that an author of a series that I admired and looked up to turned out to have problematic views.
I fell in love with Destiny 2. I’ve played it for about a year and a half inconsistently. It was just this past month where I was entirely able to understand greatness.
So far this year, we’ve already seen the release of some of the most highly-anticipated video games. From the long-awaited Final Fantasy VII remake to the adorable Animal Crossing: New Horizons, you would think things couldn’t get any better.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim was my first encounter with open world roleplaying games, and I fell in love. Not only does the game encompass all that is magical and intriguing about a rich, fantasy world, the gameplay is so vastly different for every play-through that you will never get the same experience twice. This is a game worth owning solely for the purpose of essentially having a thousand games in one.
As Metro and countless other outlets have reported, a satirical game called ’30 Miles to Barnard Castle’ was recently released on Media Molecule’s creation tool and media platform Dreams on PlayStation 4. The user-created mini-game allows the player to control British political adviser Dominic Cummings as he drives from Durham to Barnard Castle to ‘test his eyesight’. Although it is quite a simplistic and short experience, it packs in a lot of comedic, satirical points. It entails avoiding obstacles on the road whilst coping with blurry vision and the wails of a nagging child in the back seat (because Cummings supposedly drove with his wife and child in the car, despite being disorientated by Covid-19). On the surface, this mini-game might seem like an insignificant and silly bit of fun, but it provides a glimpse into a potential future. A potential future where it is not just the ability to broadcast one’s opinion to others on social media that is democratised and available to all, but also the ability to realise these ideas in film or game form without the need for inaccessible, high-end equipment.
