Will You Blendo? Latest Humble Weekly Is A Smasher

By Alec Meer on April 10th, 2013.

Not sure we’ve posted about the Humble Weekly Sale yet. This is because all we enlightened souls on RPS all dispute the concept of ‘weeks.’ It’s an artificial tyranny imposed upon us by the secret world government in order to keep us from the independent thought that would allow us to realise there are in fact 417 days in a year. The world leaders spend these hidden 52 days at a giant orgy the rest of us aren’t even aware of, let alone invited to, because we’re too busy working, paying the taxes which fund that immense, secret international flesh-fest.

There’s No Place Like Homeworld: Flotilla

By Kieron Gillen on January 28th, 2010.

DESTROY THE CEREAL!

You remember Blendo Games’ Gravity Bone, yes? One of the finest short-form indie games ever, frankly. Anyway, Mr Blendo, Brendon Chung, is working on another indie game which very much looks like RPS’ sort of thing. It’s called Flotilla and is a skirmish-level orbital-fleet RTS. In other words, yes, there’s a clear Homeworld influence. Woo! Between this and Frozen Synapse, the iconic-graphics micro-indie strategy game seems set to flourish in 2010. Hopefully! Hopefully Yays! Footage and explanation in the video that follows…
