Posted by Jessica Fisher on March 9th, 2015

Atari has released the first screenshots of their upcoming mobile game Pridefest at GDC this past week. The game is an original LGBTQ-themed social sim where you'll get to create and customize your own avatar and Pride Parade.

Pridefest allows you to connect with friends so you can visit each other's cities, chat, or challenge each other in co-op parade building. The game includes goals that, when met, provide you with festival supplies and bonuses to make your city a happier place.

While we have no set release date for Pridefest yet, Atari says it's coming soon.

Upcoming Digital Board Game SettleForge is Headed to iOS

Posted by Jessica Fisher on September 12th, 2014

SettleForge is a single-player board game where players take on the role of the king as they try to reinvigorate their country's economy. In puzzle game fashion, players must place hexagonal tiles with different buildings on them, but you must keep in mind building regulations and economical dependencies to find the best locations. Will your nation prosper. Will your subjects rejoice? That is for you to decide.

SettleForge supports DICE+, a digital game controller meant to simulate rolling a die. It hooks up via Bluetooth and uses motion detectors to know what you've rolled. You can pick up a DICE+ controller on their website for $39.99

While there is no official release date as of yet, you can follow their updates on the SettleForge Facebook page.
