Friday Night Lights: The RPS Rezzed Mixer

Maybe you’re a veteran of the RPS Social Club or maybe you’re preparing to travel to Rezzed hoping to meet some fellow RPS readers for the first time.

As the name suggests, the event is sponsored by Freejam, creators of Robocraft, and we’ll be gathering from around 7PM on Friday at The Captain Kidd pub, a short walk from the Rezzed venue.

The Lighthouse Customer: Robocraft

War never changes. It just rearranges.

Each Monday, Chris Livingston visits an early access game and reports back with stories about whatever he finds inside. This week, building, driving, and flying robotic cube-tanks in the free-to-play Robocraft.
