  5. Runbow pits up to nine players against one another online in variety of game modes that use color to create and destroy platforms in a variety of interesting ways. the general premise can be summed up in the phrase, "if you can't see it, it doesn't exist." Waves of color splash across the screen and the platforms that match the current screen color vanish until the next color sweeps the stage. It's a simple premise, but the execution makes it special. While up to nine players can play together online at one time, the Switch version of Runbow supports up to eight players in local co-op with the PlayStation 4 supporting four players. Together, players can compete in Run, Arena, or King of the Hill modes in either private games with friends or open your party up to other players from around the world. Runbow also has a single-player Adventure mode with over 140 different levels that take players on a quest to save Poster District from the villain Satura. A separate challenge mode is available that has players swallowed by a gigantic creature and attempting an escape from the beast's colorful innards. Both modes can be tackled solo or with friends. The more players splash around in the colorful world of Runbow, the more fun stuff they can unlock. In addition to concept art and costumes, there are 19 unlockable guest characters, including Shovel Knight, CommanderVideo, Shantae, and Lilac. While Runbow originally released in 2015 on the Wii U and PC (as well as last year in 2017 for Xbox One), the Switch and PlayStation 4 versions have had a bit of a bumpy road to release. The Headup Games and 13AM Games teams have apologized and pushed back the release date that has yet to be specified. The two studios stated that the delay was to spend more time optimizing the game for each respective system. The delay is "just a matter of weeks" according to the developers, so hopefully it doesn't leave too many people flustered. View full article

    Super Cat Tales 2 Looks Fur-nomenal

    Neutronized might not be a huge name in the gaming industry, but they've been steadily working on quirky, interesting projects since 2010 from their Italy-based studio. In 2016, they released a cat-focused platformer called Super Cat Tales for iOS (or Super Cat Bros. on Android). Super Cat Tales drew heavily from the heyday of 90s platformers with many people drawing parallels between the mobile title and the high points of that generation like Super Mario World and Kirby's Dream Land 3. Professional reviews, like those from Touch Arcade, gave the game perfect scores with headlines like "Don't Paws, Play This Nya-ow." Super Cat Tales was about Alex the cat on an adventure to reunite with his siblings. The sequel stars Alex and company taking on the evil Lord Iridium and his army of tin soldiers that have attacked Neko Land with a fleet of clockwork airships. The robotic forces of Lord Iridium seek a special metal hidden within the feline's planet and is rumored to be the power that holds the entire world together. Using the different powers and abilities of the various cats that join Alex in his fight, players must traverse the world and thwart Iridium's plans before the invasion destroys everything. Is it really any surprise that the bigger, richer sequel to a highly praised title would be even more impressive? The team at Neutronized have upped their game visually and the trailer really showcases that change. As players progress through an overworld filled with stages from various lands, they'll encounter a variety of new mechanics and situations. At one point, the trailer shows the grizzled cat Sergeant McMeow piloting a clockwork tank through a robotic factory. Overall, Super Cat Tales 2 just looks like a really good time, and you should keep an eye on it. Super Cat Tales 2 will release sometime in 2018 for iOS and Android.

  10. 1. Not without me making a change to the code, I just tossed it on the desktop because why not. 2. I believe those already exist by combining the text files for each of those things? I probably won't do any more updates to this, since Adobe Air sucks giant butt. If I wrote it again it might be in node or spring as a runnable jar. But with all the other tools out there that were (somehow) able to get actual blessing from the extra life folks, I'm not sure it'd be worth it. I've asked multiple multiple multiple times about rate limits or getting a whitelisted API or websocket or something, and never gotten anywhere, which is why it has to be a client-side thing, rather than a webapp. So... yeah... What's there is probably where it will rest for eternity, sorry.

    2018 Kick-off & Volunteer Meeting

    until
    Come join us on Sunday, May 20th, 5pm at Battle and Brew. Meet some of this year's guild leadership and hear about upcoming conventions and events we will be at. There will be a short presentation on what exactly volunteering entails, what will be expected during your shift, as well as some tips and tricks to make volunteering fun for you and successful for Extra Life. This is also where those who signed up to volunteer for MomoCon will get their registration for badges.
  14. All aboard the HMCS Britannic for a foray into madness courtesy of the mysterious Mr. X. The ship has all the modern conveniences as well as the ability to fly and travel through time. Also, any one of the other guests might be out to kill you. Looks can be deceiving in Murderous Pursuits, a game of refinement, role-playing, and, of course, MURDER. Murderous Pursuits puts players into a given section of the Britannic with up to seven of their friends who have taken the identities of other ship guests. Without drawing too much attention to yourself either from ship guards or other players, each guest must hunt down and kill their rivals in creative and sneaky ways. Of course, you should try not to make too much of a scene, since it might draw the attention of the guest stalking your trail. Take your time to explore the space, find insane (but concealable) weapons, and find the right time and place for your target's demise. Developer Blazing Griffin will be launching the game next week, but hopes that the open beta they have planned for this weekend can help iron out any remaining wrinkles in their game. The beta will begin tomorrow, April 20, at 7pm EST/4pm PST and run until Sunday, April 22, at 12am EST/9pm PST. You can install the beta client from the title's Steam page. Murderous Pursuits releases for PC on April 26. View full article

  20. Frostpunk gives players the task of guiding the growth and survival of New London, the last city on Earth. In order to survive in the face of an unending winter that has largely wiped out humanity across the globe, the final remnants of the human race have turned to using the power of steam. Starting from a collection of shelters in a somewhat sheltered valley, players guide New London to greatness and sustainability by managing the expansion of the city, deciding on the policies regarding food, water, and the most precious resource of all: heat. Players will be responsible for deciding how heat is distributed throughout their city, a power that can mean the difference between life and death. As the city grows, more conflicts and problems will arise from the general population. Players will have to establish laws and policies that govern the populace. Do you prioritize healthcare or building maintenance? Do you make sure everyone is fed even at the cost of increasing police presence? Another wrinkle on top of everything else, the population has to have hope. Everyone in New London is well aware of the precarious nature of their survival. The more desperate the situation becomes, the less hope people have and the more likely the city is to revolt or have various problems. As players progress, small decisions will add up and lead to decision points that will alter the entirety of society forever. How far is too far to maintain order and stability in a city that represents the last shot at the survival of the species? Once players advance to a certain technological level they can explore the surrounding world by sending out expeditions into the blinding frozen wastes. These are risky endeavors that could go down in flames and ice or discover a treasure trove of new citizens, technology, or resources. It can be hard to get society to that higher tech level, but the higher end of the tech tree brings automated drones and airships that can be a huge boon to New London. Frostpunk releases on April 24 for PC .

    April Guild Meeting

    Hey everyone, just a friendly reminder this month's guild meeting is this Saturday the 21st at the Family Game Store in Savage Mill! The address is 8600 Foundry st., Savage MD 20763 We'll be meeting around noon(our usual time) hope to see you all there!
  23. Surprising most of the world, MapleStory's recently announced sequel, MapleStory 2, won't be a deep dive into the sticky situations of the Canadian syrup industry. Many expected that the sequel to the long-running, free-to-play MMORPG would abandon its side-scrolling roots for a more serious look at the syrup allegory hidden within the maple-flavored heart of its setting. However, the sugary spirit Nexon has presented in the sequel's trailer seems to be quite different from what some were expecting. Instead, MapleStory 2 will focus on crafting and advancement in social prestige while bringing the series into 3D. Of course, this doesn't mean that all vestiges of the once cutting syrup exposé originally suspected by certain segments of the public will be absent. The name itself hews closely to the original, and the series retains the lighthearted and colorful nature that always spoke of the deliciousness of pancakes or french toast lavished in syrupy goodness. True, that particular style might be drawing more from Minecraft than the mechanical underbelly of the syrup industry, but it's certainly more tonally consistent with the wider whole of MapleStory 2 than what we can only imagine would have been an increasingly dark journey into the depths of corporate cover-ups and staggering quantities of embezzled syrup. MapleStory 2 looks adorable and fun regardless of what one might have expected prior to the announcement. Players can sign up for the beta until May 6, and the beta itself will run from May 9-16.
