Steampunk Junkies PowerSource power bank review

Just under a year ago I reviewed the Cryptex USB Flash Drive from Steampunk Junkies. I thought I’d give you readers a little time to fully digest all the exceptional wordsmithery and inclusive critical data. Now, ten days short of the one year anniversary from that review which I expect you’ve ALL read, I’ve turned my attention to the PowerSource power bank. A power bank is essentially a portable mobile battery for your phone or tablet. It stores power until you need it and then you simply plug your device in when needed.

As punks, we’re all accustomed to breaking the rules; not conforming to what those rum coves in office say we have to do! One thing I’m proud of as a dweller of Sheffield is that it has the only building in the UK that has an ASBO. Simply because ASBO’s are only for people and this broke conformity.

80 Days comes to Android

80 Days comes to Android

Video game makers Inkle have released an Android version of 80 Days. They say it’s a steampunk game based on Jules Verne’s Around the World in 80 Days. You get to travel your way around the globe as fast as you can in order to complete the challenge.

In the press release (below) the makers have specified that the graphics are Art Deco which – while being very nice – are around 40 years after steampunk generally has a setting. However, you get to interact with hundreds of people across 7 continents and 150 cities.

It’s devised as a choose your own adventure style game with over 10,000 choices that you can make and nearly an entire world to travel around. It certainly sounds like an interesting concept. It’s available from the Google Play store or Amazon for around £3. Continue reading “80 Days comes to Android”
