Amazon Game Studios has a new title available now for Kindle Fire tablets from 2014 and 2013. The action-adventure game is Tales From Deep Space. Players control traveling salesman E and his robotic piece of luggage CASI. The two are attempting to escape the Big Moon space station as it has been locked down. Although the game is of the action-adventure genre, it is full of puzzles with comedy as well.

Through ComiXology, a prequel comic compliments the Tales From Deep Space game. It provides players with the reason as to how E and CASI arrived at the Big Moon space station. If you are purchasing the game, we highly recommend the comic. After all, it is complimentary to the game and it is free.

Hit the break for the gallery, trailer, and download links.

Google releases Pie Noon, a simple game to show off the simplicity of making games for Android TV

Posted by wicked November - 19 - 2014 - Wednesday Comments Off

pie noonGoogle has released a new game called Pie Noon, designed specifically to show off just how easy it is to create games for Android TV. The game is completely open-source and written in C++, and it supports all of the basics that Google wants to push with Android TV. It features multiplayer with up to 4 players, a single-player experience, dedicated touch controls, and Google Play Games leaderboards and services.

The game uses a variety of Google technologies and serves as a great demonstration on how to get your games up and going for Android TV. It’s freely available in the Play Store, and the entire project is available on GitHub.

Google is clearly taking Android TV much more seriously than previous Google TV efforts, and projects like this are stepping stones to getting the platform where it needs to be. The game isn’t flashy, but sometimes a simple demonstration for how things should be is the right approach. Hopefully we’ll see more developers follow Google’s lead here.

Google built a Flappy Bird clone into Android Lollipop’s source code

Posted by wicked November - 13 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

android_lollipop_tweetGoogle is known for including Easter Eggs in their products and services, and Android is no exception. Apparently, the company thought it would be clever to bake in a Lollipop themed version of the popular Flappy Bird game right into Android 5.0′s source code that’s accessible on Google’s Nexus Player. 

Getting to the game is pretty similar to unlocking developer options in newer versions of Android. It’s not difficult, but if you don’t know what you’re looking for you wouldn’t ever find it. The game features an Android flying in between lollipop obstacles, which is the perfect way to test out your new Nexus Player, right?

Good to see Google still knows how to have fun with their products. Hit the link below to find the instructions from Phandroid if you’re interested in playing the game.

nexus-player-gamepad

The Nexus Player pre-order went through a bit of a rough start, but now it is up and available to order, and as of today so is the Nexus Player’s accompanying game controller. A first for Google, the Nexus Player’s gamepad looks like a serious controller with a button arrangement not unlike the Sony’s DualShock controllers. The buttons include 2 analog sticks, a 4-button D-pad and 8 action buttons featuring two pressure-sensitive triggers.

The Nexus Player will support up to four controllers at a time and can play most games that are avavilable on the Play Store. You can pre-order the Nexus Player now for $99 and a controller will set you back another $39. Any early adopters out there looking to get their hands on a Nexus Player? Let us know in the comments below!

ouya_console_16GB_black_controller

The Ouya gaming console, or microconsole, is a device suitable for casual gamers. Some, though, find it a little limited and boring. One developer has been able to bring Google’s Android TV platform to Ouya, bringing some excitement back to the device. Not everything is operable, but that is expected to change in due time. All of the connection functions, like WiFi and Bluetooth, work. The issues arise with video and audio playback.

You can head over to the source link for directions and file downloads.
