Here's more information:
Less like an ark, more like a seed: dormant but with potential.
In Seedship, you are the AI of an interstellar ship carrying 1000 frozen humans and your databases are full of Earth's scientific and cultural knowledge. As a text-only adventure, you fly throughout the universe, scanning planets, looking for a suitable homeworld to "seed" humanity. As you travel, you will likely take damage, but you will also "learn" what to look for in planets and be able to upgrade your scanners. I won't get into much more detail, as it's fun to experience it for yourself.
This is a very quick, randomly generated game that I recommend checking out. After a while, some of the "random" encounters and outcomes start to be repetitive, but this was very enjoyable for me to play though. I play it on my phone, and it keeps a record of every play through result. I've played it 41 times, and have had ending civilizations ranging from Warring Neolitic States to Engaged Post-Singularity Democracies.
I recommend checking it out!
David Benioff and D.B. Weiss (creators of Game of Thrones) are going to be writing and producing a new series of Star Wars films! I haven't seen a lot of information about it yet, but I already can't wait to see this! Game of Thrones has some amazing world building and character development that I hope translates well into the Star Wars universe. I've already forgotten about that movie coming out about a smuggler... what's his name Hope Solo?
Dan plays as Fondue Zubag, a half-orc ranger, and he has a regular cast that plays with him, in front of a live audience, with a guest comedian. The episodes are then animated and cut between the animation of the game and the players around a table.
Paul F. Tompkins was the guest in episode 1 (who played as Teflonto, Earthscar's village champion and captain of the town's militia. Also a friend, mentor, and role model to Fondue). Looking at the episode list, here are some of the guest players: Aubrey Plaza, Thomas Middleditch, Kumail Nanjiani, Patton Oswalt and Nathan Fillion.
If you're a fan of Dungeons and Dragons, or just comedy, I 100% recommend checking this out! (It does require setting up a free account to watch)
All in all, you can finish this game in a few hours (depending on how fast you read I suppose). I've played through it twice so far, but haven't beat it. I'm going to wait on a third time though, since similar to reading a book, I know basically what's coming next (the choose your own adventure options do eventually bring you to the same plot points, it's just a matter of how you get there and how ready you are).
I definitely recommend picking the game up and checking it out. Here's a link to the Google Play Store version, but I believe it's available pretty much everywhere.
"The Great Tournament" is a 180,000 word interactive fantasy novel by Philip Kempton, where your choices control the story. It's entirely text-based—without graphics or sound effects—and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.
• Choose your attributes and train your skills in order to win in tournaments.
• Become a hero of the realm or use your power to take control over the kingdom.
• Unique combat and character generation ensures no one game is the same.
• Fight for glory, love, or power in the Great Tournament.
• Multiple endings with different story lines.
This is an insane new mechanic. I'd love to find out more about this story line. Has Mario been a zombie of the hat through all the past games?!?
The music sounds incredible. I'm hoping the actual game has a soundtrack like this!
Anyone else completely confused by this trailer?
This looks great! I'm leaning back and forth how much info I want on the movie, but in the end, I probably won't be able to resist watching all the trailers :)

William Elshoff scoured the globe for artifacts of great power. His findings had turned up little until now, he claimed he had found the key to Nibiru!
He locked himself in his study and began to work, he was in there for over a week! When we went to check on him, we discovered he had vanished. That’s why we have summoned you here. We are hoping, with your unique skill set, you and your team can unlock the secrets to Uncle William’s whereabouts and bring him home!
Last week, I received a review pass to Hour To Midnight - Room Escape Games to check out their first puzzle Room, titled The Secrets of Nibiru. I happily accepted it and joined a team of local “influencers” (2 people from hotels and 1 person who works in business networking) who were invited to promote Hour To Midnight. (Cheerful Ghost was contacted to try it out, as we’re a gaming website obviously. Jon couldn’t make it, but he offered the chance to me.) The recommended team size is between 6 and 10, so our team of 4 started out at a disadvantage, but HTM modified the game slightly for our team size (they have different rules for different sized teams).
To begin, one of the HTM employees talked us through the rules and gave us some very general tips, as it was the first time in an Escape Room for any of us. Then we were walked into the room to start, and the door was shut behind us, locking (for legal and fire safety reasons, there’s a panic button to get out if needed). The lights were off and a short narration started, beginning the game. We then had 60 minutes to tear through the study and figure out how to get out. We started out slowly, just looking at everything, but soon started finding clues in random places around the office.
I won’t go into any details about any of the puzzles, but sometimes simply just figuring out what the puzzle was was difficult enough! Everything was logical though and made sense within the room. Puzzles lead to more puzzles throughout. Sometimes, you’ll be working on one puzzle and concurrently someone else will be working on another that will help you along in yours when they’ve finished.
I had an absolute blast! My team didn’t finish within the allotted time, but we got really close, and considering we were a small team of people that didn’t know each other, I was pretty proud of all we got through. Escape Rooms have been something I’ve been very interested in for a couple years now, but just never managed to try one out. Now that I’ve experienced it, I can’t recommend Hour To Midnight enough! Currently there’s only one room finished (this one took around 8 months to put together. The detail they went to is incredible.), but they hope to have a second room finished by the end of the year. And have 2 more rooms in planning/building stages.
Hour To Midnight also has a banquet room, where they can host receptions, office parties, etc. (I’ve already talked with my office manager at work about having an office outing here) When a large group is there, multiple teams can work through the room, and after your team has finished, you can spend your time in the “spoiler room,” where you can watch video feeds of the next teams struggle through the puzzles.
I want to thank Hour To Midnight for inviting Cheerful Ghost to experience their business, and thank Jon for letting me go in his place. I absolutely recommend checking it out for yourself!
