Yay!  We have a website again!  All thanks to our tech-priest, and - of course - to the glorious Emperor of Mankind.

We’ve covered Gabe’s inability to “long endure those virtumal realmz,” a state which hasn’t abated.  He was incredulous when I told him about Brass Tactics, saying “you still play games in VR?!” but the answer is Yes.  I do still play games in VR.  The kids and I never stopped, all the way from the beta Vive hardware we had, which was… what.  2015?  In my house, VR is a norm.

But Kara got hooked on a game called Moss, to the extent that she played it for three straight hours or something, and the art and craft of the game must have been barbed in the way a fishhook is, because he was fish-shook.  Any game where you start by turning a page in a book gets an automatic 10/10 from me, so I might not be a good person to ask about it.  I understand the game is flipping people out. 

He took his drugs and then it was in for a penny in for a pound, first Mossing with enthusiasm, then trying out SUPERHOT on PSVR now that it’s not exclusive.  That’s the best shooter in VR, and maybe the best game of the medium right now…?  I think he agrees.

When he got in this morning, I asked him if he’d done more.  What had he seen in there?  But no.  The amount of VR he can suffer through - even chemically augmented - is apparently governed by some kind of glowing bar, and this bar refills at a trickle.

PAX East fast approaches, and scalper tickets we reclaimed were recently put back up for sale - but this proximity also means that it’s time to announce the selections for the PAX East Indie Showcase, which focuses on mobile offerings.  Check THIS flavor:

Bouncy Smash by IV Studio
Hexland Heroes by Niebla Games
  Jenny LeClue - Detectivu by Mografi
Warhammer: DOOMWHEEL by Katsu Entertainment

Gratz, and I’ll come bug you at the show!
