So, you think life just accidentally began when organic molecules (after millions and millions of years of swimming in a puddle of primordial soup) organized one-too-many swimming championships?

Minecraft probably needs no introduction, as the creative sandbox block-building game has catapulted to international fame. The Pocket Edition includes randomly generated worlds, multiplayer over a local Wi-Fi network, along with Survival and Creative modes.

Knights of Pen & Paper is an indie turn-based retro style pixel-art RPG. Inspired by the great titles of the 90’s, the game intends to recreate the feeling of playing a traditional pen and paper RPG. The player gets to control the playing characters, the dungeon master, and what battles lay ahead.
