Game Deliveries this week – It’s no Gen Con, but it’s still a haul!

20180806 Game Haul

So Gen Con 2018 is over, and Facebook and BGG are full of proud attendees showing off their amazing hauls. Here in Australia, really all I can do is sit back and look with envy at games that I hope will hit my shores soon. But the week isn’t over, and the mailman has bought me some presents! Kickstarter pledges for The Big Score and Mint Delivery, and my preorder for Big Trouble in Little China to be precise 🙂

Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption adds new life to an old friend

Hero-U Rogue to Redemption Feature

The Sierra games where THE adventure games to play in the 80’s and early 90’s. King’s Quest, Quest for Glory (originally Hero’s Quest), Space Quest, Police Quest, even Leisure Suit Larry have a special place in many gamers hearts from my generation. And now, from the original designers of the Quest for Glory series, Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption has completed it’s long journey to begin a new series of adventures.
