Blast Zone! Tournament is basically Bomberman and free for keepsies on Steam

Blast Zone! Tournament is as close as you can get to Bomberman while still being legally distinct, and Bomberman is always good. Free Bomberman with a big single-player mode, full online and local multiplayer is just grand. Developed by Victory Lap Games, it entered early access last year, and if you grab it by January 16th you get to keep it free forever. From the little bit I’ve played, it’s exactly what it looks like, albeit slightly marred by Xbox 360-era avatar styled characters. Still, you can do much worse…

This random city generator is the best thing you’ll randomly-generate today

“hellll yes infinite procedurally-generated city” is the title of the Trello card left in the RPS organisation-o-tron 3000 concerning Wave Function Collapse, and yep, that neatly sums up what I want to say about this. An endless city, one of a kind, created just for you whenever you load the application. Close the application, and that city’s gone forever. Maaaaan.

Priceless Play – 12 January

Cleaning is miraculous. It is the ultimate de-stressor for me. I have no patience for an unmade bed or dishes left in the sink. I pride myself on my cable management, I love making to-do lists, and nothing makes me more excited than an itinerary. Perhaps it’s why I love inventory management and city sims! But even I can fall behind on my organisational prowess. I have so many ambitions left unfulfilled, so much productivity made illusory with every pomodoro timer and budget tracker app I download but never use.…
