April 24!? Wow, that came out of nowhere. Sadly, after buying Control and DOOM:Eternal recently, I'm kinda stretched thin on gaming money/time.

The Cooking Mama saga rolls on:

Quote
Unfortunately, the quality of the game builds failed to meet the standards that our customers expect and deserve. Office Create rejected a wide range of deficiencies affecting the overall feel, quality and content of the game. Yet, despite being contractually obligated to correct the identified deficiencies and resubmit the corrected game for Office Create’s approval, Planet proceeded to release Cooking Mama: Cookstar without addressing all of the rejections and without Office Create’s approval.

Finally, the game that started out as an MLP fan game has finally launched its story mode and is out of Early Access.

This was run at AGDQ 2020. It's quite a trip. Presumably all the awful goodness will be kept intact, otherwise what's the point?

"Hoshi wo miru hito" literally translates as "The person who saw the stars.".

A bit late with this news, but if you have finished Ron Gilbert's excellent Thimbleweed Park throwback LucasArts-esque Adventure Game, he has released a follow-up new engine demo (but not a sequel) using the same assets but confined to the limitations that the COVID-19 pandemic provided (e.g. no voice acting or extra art): https://www.grumpygamer.com/what_i_did_during_the_pandemic
