You all remember Tea Bombing and how everyone was going to try it, but never did? Well recently I became aware of arguably the best steampunk past-time in the world. Teapot Racing is a sport seemingly exclusive to the Wellington steampunk group “Capital! Steampunks”. Having raced radio controlled cars when I was around 15 years old, I was fascinated by what it entailed, so I got in touch with Col. Sir Julius Hawthorne – administrator of the group – to ask him all about it. This is an interview that you’ll really enjoy.
Remember SteamWorld Dig that I reported the teaser trailer on back in 2013? I just about did. It was to be released on Nintendo 3DS and since then has also been released on Playstation 4, PS Vita and Wii U.
Image & Form who created the game have still got to make some amendments to it before release and they’re also creating an “elaborate easter egg“. They don’t have a release date yet, but it seems they’re so excited about the news that they simply had to tell us all about it right now. They do expect it to be available by late May 2015.

(“Netmarble”), today announced Quickboy will launch this April on iOS and Android devices. Continuing to build upon their wide catalogue of high production quality, fun-filled games, Quickboy promises to deliver fast-paced action set in a post-apocalyptic world.

Players will have the option of choosing from a variety of unique characters with their own personalities. While on the mission to deliver packages, players must also collect coins in addition to bolts and nuts used to produce a trusty sidekick in the form of drones. Run, jump, slide, equip drones or even take flight with a jetpack past grueling obstacles in over 70 stages containing quest-based missions. With waves of zombies in the way, it is essential that players take advantage of the items and bonuses made available to them. Compete against others in World Challenge Mode and become the number one “Quickboy”. Mayhem is on the horizon!
