Dang, I should've been following Shiness this whole time!

Do you know about Shiness: The Lightning Kingdom? I didn't know a thing about it -- not until a couple of weeks ago, at E3 2016, where I was given a rapid-fire rundown. Schedule changes and general last-day-of-the-expo busyness meant I had ...   read

When it comes to pixel art, there is good stuff and there is bad stuff. Recently launched on Kickstarter, Wanderer falls easily into the former category. I just love the look of the pixelated characters on the more painterly backgrounds. On...   read
