“Curved Space” by Only By Midnight
Curved Space is a dizzying modern take on the classic arcade shooter set across a surreal universe of space-bending arenas. Watch as bullets, beams and bizarre alien energy spiders alike curve and warp around the surface of asteroids, space stations and physics-defying mobius strips.

Board Games (By Edmonton Netrunner):
Android: Netrunner is an asymmetric two-player cybernoir card game. One player is a giant corporation trying to advance various agendas to gain money and power, and the other player is a runner (hacker) trying to stop them by stealing their data.
Though the game has been discontinued by the publisher, a fan group called [NISEI](https://nisei.net) is continuing to make new content for it. NISEI cards are available both as real cards from some online print-on-demand shops and as print-and-play PDFs, making it cheap to start playing. Currently, all organized play has moved temporarily online, which isn’t as social but is even cheaper.

The only thing that has been found to be common among the deaths, which are assumed to be murders, is that a goglian apple, a type of apple that only grows underground, with a single bite taken out of it. The town council and guard of Tinifal assumes that whatever, or whoever, is committing these murders is coming from the Mogodi wood west of the town of Tinifal as that is the only known place within 100 kilometers to grow the rare fruit.

The guard and the council have asked that you either capture or destroy the threat and return to them with proof that the threat has been deal with.”
