JP Vaughan of Rocket Rainbow writes;
“I’m one of the developers on Hay Ewe and wanted to let you know about its global release on the AppStore Tomorrow [Thursday, October9].
It’s being published in partnership with UK publishing veteran Team17 Ltd, the guys who made Worms, and is the first title from Rocket Rainbow.
We’re a very small Irish game developer that began life after the US company, PopCap, closed its Dublin studio back in September 2012. There’s not many games development jobs in Ireland, PopCap was the largest when it was here employing 96 people, so we had to choose between going abroad or doing it ourselves. Thankfully we went with the latter and although it has been Lidl noodles and little pay for the past year and a half, we are still delighted with the decision. It would be great if you got the word out.”
“Possibly the most addictive game of all time. Move with arrow keys or swipe on a phone. Add two matching tiles together to create a tile with the sum. Get to tile 2048….”

Parts one and two of the Tropes Vs Women in Video Games series – a Kickstarter funded educational video project exploring one of the most prevalent gender-stereotyping clichés of gaming. Of the just-released episode 2, Anita Sarkeesian sez:
In this installment we look at “dark and edgy” side of the trope in more modern games and how the plot device is often used in conjunction with graphic depictions of violence against women. Over the past decade we’ve seen developers try to spice up the old Damsel in Distress cliche by combining it with other tropes involving victimized women including the disposable woman, the mercy killing and the woman in the refrigerator.
