The magnificent sunsets of Firewatch

I spent some weeks alone in the wilderness of Wyoming. Or rather… I wasn’t exactly alone. But isolated, definitely.

He is, without contest, the most charming and handsome computer game character ever made – and his pleasing, pixelated frame has now been updated in an awesome remake of the three games in the series, rereleased as Uncharted: The […]

Cultivate what matters. Cut away the rest.

The zen-like iPhone game Prune is “a digital bonsai tree in your pocket”.
