Knights of Pen & Paper 2 Trailer

Touch Arcade has the latest trailer up for Knights of Pen & Paper 2

The 16-bit visuals are looking great, though without running away from the “nerds sitting at a table playing a tabletop game” frame that the original game used. Super-cool. You’ll be trying to save the world from the second-edition ruleset of the game that threatens to upend everything we love and hold dear. This will not stand. Because we’ll be sitting down.

The name itself, well we were looking for something unique. Not “Watch News” similar. And remembered the snarky remark made by competitor Pebble when the Apple Watch was announced. Seemed like the perfect name to us.

Out Now: Does Not Commute from Mediocre

I’ve been playing this for a few days, damn is it fun. Very unique and just plain awesome. I hope to see more Puzzle Racing games (??).

A strategic driving game from the award-winning maker’s of Smash Hit. Does not Commute is a temporal paradox in which you have no one to blame but yourself. What starts out as a relaxing commute in a small town of the 1970’s quickly devolves into traffic chaos with hot dog trucks, sports cars, school buses and dozens of other vehicles. You drive them all. Plan ahead. Don’t be late.

In this small town, discover the characters and their secrets – what world-changing experiment is inventive dentist Dr Charles Schneider hiding? Will Mr Baker quit his job in advertising? What is that strange mask on Mrs Griffin’s face? Will Mr Mayfield’s peculiar obsession with Yorkshire Terriers take over his life?
