This is the candy store of electronic music. You ever had that fantasy as a kid where you swim in a pool filled with liquid chocolate or a candy store that you’re locked in at night? Well if you’re into electronic music, this is the analogy that will give you an idea of what to expect.

The city will be swamped by gazillions of dance-infested music addicts who would trade their mums for entry-tickets to some of the exclusive parties hosted in the coming days. Not to worry, there are plenty of good parties that you can get in the very usual way.

Submachine: A Game Series for Adventurers

You are alone in a basement. And you need to get out. Simple, eh? Maybe not. What begun as just one entry by Mateusz Skutnik, became a fan-favourite series in the indie game scene, especially for the lovers of adventure games. The player needs to use items in an “escape room” environment to solve puzzles and find their way out of the basement they are trapped in. At the same time, despite the lack of other characters, you constantly have a feeling that you are not alone. Add to that the use of ambient music (à la “Myst” series), and you make this a game (and subsequent series) a timeless, atmospheric experience. The series started in  mid-00’s, and slowly the creator would release new entries every now and..

Bambi Meets Godzilla. Yes, Really.

When you think of classic animation, what comes to mind first? Probably, iconic movies such as The Lion King or Toy Story, right? But what about another animation classic, Bambi Meets Godzilla. Wait, what? In 1969, Marv Newland made this student film, while experimenting with animation. The plot is very simple: Bambi (yes, the deer) is just chilling, when suddenly he gets stepped by Godzilla. That’s it. The 90-second long clip is absurd, hilarious, but also innovative for its time. It has even been considered as worthy of preservation by the Academy Foundation (those people who hand out the Oscars), and received a couple of sequels too. Early animation was crazy. Marv Newland went on to make a lot more animated films and series (including some in the..

The World’s Most Expensive Game

There are many games on the Steam platform that can be quite expensive. Especially if you add DLC for skins, characters, and stages, the amount you need to spend might reach thousands of euro. But what is the price you need to pay if you are looking for Steam’s most expensive single, standalone game? Well, one of the newest games available on the platform, The Hidden and Unknown goes for a whooping 1.949,09€! No, your eyes are not deceiving you. The game was developed by ProX, a person or studio (we are not sure) famous for bringing you…eh…The Hidden and Unknown. That’s it. That is the only game they have ever released on Steam. We haven’t played the game (obviously), but there are some walkthroughs on YouTube about..
