Introducing the Yogscast Game Store

image

We’re excited to announce the Yogscast Game Store, the first custom Humble Store. Check it out at games.yogscast.com. The Yogscast Game Store is a place where Yogscast fans (we hear they call themselves Yognauts) can support game developers, The Yogscast and its chosen charity, War Child. We are excited to start with The Yogscast because we saw how awesome the Yognauts were during their Dwarven Dairy Drive last holiday.

So how does it work? Yogscast chooses the games in their store. We handle all the annoying operational work. We pay the developers the same way we pay them for any sale in the Humble Store (75%). Yogscast is paid out of the Humble share. We put all this right at the top of the store so it’s totally transparent to you.

This is just the Humble beginning of what we hope will be a democratization of PC game sales. We will bring more game stores online soon, and more stores mean more choices for gamers. Choose where you shop based on what is important to you: the games they play, the charity they support, or because they speak your language.

Keep your eye on this space. We’ll let you know as we bring more stores online.

Sky Rogue is a fun roguelike flight sim with a wonderful low poly visual style, arcade handling and an infinite number of procedurally generated islands to soar and shoot your way through.

We first covered Sky Rogue last year, and found it to be a blast.  It’s come a long way since then, with all manner upgrades and tweaks, including a great selection of unlockable weaponry and aircraft.   It’s  easy to play, with your planes are manoeuvring well, making aerial dogfights and air to ground based combat a joy to take part in.  You’ll have to be careful in the skies though, in typical roguelike fashion, there are no lives or checkpoints, when you die it’s game over (although you do keep currency and unlocks).

It’s great fun blasting your way through the skies of Sky Rogue, with it’s vibrant visuals and awesome soundtrack - a feel good flight sim with a cool retro vibe.

I remember when this video first debuted. It became the featured promo teaser preceding J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek: Into Darkness due to a crowdfunding campaign headlined by the American Institute for Aeronautics.

Why is this important? Because bizarrely, federal law actually prohibits NASA from purchasing air time to promote itself. So, in the wake of corrupt and nonsensical mainstream media advertisements, the one agency funded by American taxpayers that has fueled exploration, economic spin-offs and the understanding of our origins in the universe, is prohibited from money spent on public outreach.

You can learn more about AIA’s Indiegogo campaign (which successfully surpassed their funding goal) here.

The video, narrated by Transformers’ Peter Cullen (aka ‘Optimus Prime’) highlights the history of human spaceflight [and exploration in general], embodying all that NASA stands for, as well as the passion and curiosity that drives our species to explore.

Keep this in mind when Christopher Nolan’s ‘Interstellar’ hits theaters. It’s why he made the film: to keep us aware of our cosmic significance and are capacity to thrive and survive amongst the great perils that have faced us before.

This video also provides a stark reminder to all that NASA is an integral keystone of our global society. It’s only ironic that the promo above was also looped during 'Discovery Day' at the Smithsonian Udvar-Hazy Air and Space Museum during the retirement/induction ceremony of NASA Space Shuttle Discovery.

As a final aside, the message conveyed through this promo is further communicated through the documentary film "I want to be an Astronaut" which seeks “To tell the story of going…and remind everyone what NASA means to the world, reignite those dreams again, and explore space together.” (David Ruck, Director; and Rich Evans, Public Relations). Audience reactions and more on the film, here.

Exploration is in our nature. We began as wanderers, and we are wanderers still. We have lingered long enough on the shores of the cosmic ocean. We are ready at last to set sail for the stars.
