Gimbal Expansion One

The Gimbal website now offers a new Expansion One for this multiplayer shooter with buildable vehicles. Here's word on the game: "Players conduct team-based combat against one another, while gaining money and building bigger, better ships. Gimbal has a rigid body physics engine with aerodynamics, so all subcomponents of a ship, even unlaunched missiles, affect the speed and handling. Ships can be shared as PNG images because the ship data is stored in the PNG." And here's word from the project's developer on the expansion: "This is the largest release of features since Gimbal's launch. Expansion One adds 26 new parts and four new game modes: Capture the Flag, Deathmatch, Elimination Deathmatch, and Racing mode. These features add depth to the multiplayer gameplay, and work to bring Gimbal in line with my original vision."

Among the Sleep Funded

The Kickstarter for Among the Sleep has word that Krillbite Studio's first-person horror adventure is funded, and the game has hit three of its stretch goals, so the game will come with a commentary track and Oculus Rift support, while the team will also get treated to an ice cream (thanks nin). The game will offer the unusual perspective of playing as a two-year-old child, and there are playable alpha builds for Windows, OS X, and Linux to see what they have in mind.

Out of the Blue

Now things are really happening in ManStovia, as I have cooked up the first batch of barbeque sauce of the season. This is just a simple Coca-Cola-based sauce from Steven Raichlen, but it seems promising. It's a little less tangy/spicy than I generally prefer, but its sweetness seemed a nice complement to some grilled chicken, so I'm happy with the outcome.
