Body Changer is an inspirering 3D 3rd person video game hybrid between problem solving, monster shooting, and survival.
With intriguing CGI it takes into space where you posses the power of, you guessed it, changing your own body.
There are many more interesting things to learn about this game but don't just take it from me.

Playir is a new kind of technology. It's real time 3D game development for all devices.
Some people say it's impossible, others believe that's not true.
What do we think? We think that Playir is no where near impossible.
SGS may not be for developing 3D games but it is a 2D game development application made with a game maker coming soon to android. People told us that that was impossible and yet it is being done right now. We believe that Playir will be the new way to develop video games. This is an idea and a project worth making happen! Will you help make it happen?

Udell Games creates an awesome effect manager.
Udell games says:
In Hyper Gauntlet, I have recently implemented a vignette system for the edges of the screen. Vignettes are coloured based on the changing game state, with a slow blue fade in and out during slow motion and a red flash when you hit an obstacle. Originally I tweened between colours as needed, but I soon met errors in common scenarios when the vignette colour must tween back to a previous effect colour. As an example, imagine an obstacle is approaching fast. I hold space to engage the slow motion, and a blue vignette appears around the screen. Unfortunately, I cannot move out of the way in time and I hit the obstacle – causing the vignette to fade quickly to red. In a basic system, the vignette would then fade back to a neutral state, instead of returning to the blue to signify that slow motion was still engaged, and this confuses players. Today I present a simple solution tailored for Unity systems that is applicable to any code base. It’s not just useful for vignetting either, I intend to also apply this system to slow motion (to apply power up-induced slow motion even when the player lets go of space for manual slow motion), and this could also find a use in stacking effect spells in RPGs.
But that's not all...
EffectLet’s start with the simplest class. It’s an effect. It doesn’t really do much at all, you’re meant to extend from it or any of its derived classes with your own, more specialised classes. Effect acts as a catchall for all effects so that they can all be processed. It does support events for tweening in though, as all effects can be gradually applied.
public class Effect
That's all great but that's not half of it. There's more to know about how they created this "Effect Manager". You can read there actual post here: Effect Manager.
The post includes a lot more information and a lot more example code. So check it out! I did! :)
New game for android!
Sorry it's been a while, but the while has been worth the wait!
A new game called BrainSquare just came out a few days ago by
Sompom Creative Studio
It is an awesome brain game full of crazy physics, hundreds of levels, Squares, and it's free to play! However there is a slight twist...
The first 10,000 people are allowed to buy a special pack of 200 levels in addition to the amount of levels you start out with for $2.50.
I personally think it's worth it. I love the game, love the design, the guys that made it are in our community so please check it out, and have fun!

Fuel 3D is trying to come up with a 3 dimensional scanner for artists and game developers with a price under $1000. This is a remarkable device with tuns of uses.
Fuel 3D recently joined Game development (our community) and posted:
We think the Game Development community would be very interested in our Fuel3D, 3D scanner - it's an easy-to-use, point-and-shoot device that allows for quick image capture. Added to this is it's ability to capture high-resolution images at one-tenth of the price of its closest competitor ($1,000).
Games in education is a project created by UOG, the university of games.
The UOG says:
We live in the information age, it has become increasingly challenging to attain and retain the attention of the masses. There is a need for an engaging communication channel that can rival today’s distractions.
Games tend to monopolize the player’s attention during play. The current methods of communication are mostly one way / unidirectional. I introduce to you Interaction. This is use of games in education which offers a chance for an educator to engage a target audience while they are in this “monopolized” state of mind. Interaction will help governments talk about policies such as devolution. Interaction will help educators during lessons in classrooms. Interaction will literally engage the users. With the improvement of IT infrastructure in a number of 3rd world countries, this solution is justified to be relevant to pre teens, teens and the youth. Interaction will revolutionize how people communicate with each other. My team and I came up with Election Thief, an android based game that preached the message of peace during the Kenya general elections that were held in March 2013. Since then, the new Government in Kenya has created an initiative where children joining 1st Grade in 2014 in 6000 schools will each be given a laptop to use in class. This is where games will come into play. Use of games in education has been proven to work before in other countries. With the games, the children will not only enjoy learning, they will also acquire vital IT skills with ease. The games will be based on the present curriculum already established. They are NOT replacing the teacher, but improving the retention levels of the students as well as giving them IT skills.
