How we turned our 2012 7DFPS entry into a Nintendo Wii U couch multiplayer extravaganza for up to four combatants and one lucky commentator.

Midnight Status and Slover Library will be hosting PixelFest, Norfolk's first dedicated gaming festival from April 8th to April 10th, 2016. The event will be FREE and include a variety of activities including an indie showcase and a game jam.

Nintendo is just treading carefully with the Switch and its early titles. They only have so much time and energy to go around and they are focused on certain titles first. There 's nothing wrong with that. Unity and Unreal are both options for the Switch and I just got ...
