So...what would you little maniacs like to do first?

Table of Contents

There’s something about these 80s movies that is just so satisfying. Plus, they have incredible soundtracks! I’ve been working with Becca through my favorites: Weird Science, Short Circuit, Coming to America, Willow, Dirty Dancing, Labyrinth, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, and more!

ANYONE ELSE READY FOR THE APPLE EVENT TODAY? 1 PM EST. Let’s get together and talk about neurons and fancy things.

❣️Noteworthy Last Week

⌛ I really need to get back into Icarus; these new mounts are awesome. If you have a VR system and love survival, you may want to check out Bootstrap Island. If you play The Infected, remember that your save may be impacted by the changes coming to the map in V15- read this and this. EndZone 2 will be getting a Kickstarter campaign in the near future. Serum released some new teaser footage, but I still feel bad about what I’ve seen. The company behind Bermuda-Lost Survival is shutting down, so the game will no longer be sold but still be available to play in owners' libraries. It’s currently on sale for 65% off, under $4 USD.

📅 Upcoming

🔮 Stoked for the top-down zombie survival title HumanitZ (demo available); the release is on September 18th. Wildmender is a desert gardening survival game dropping on September 28th- but if you want to try the demo, hurry- it will be taken down on September 15th. Dwarven survival (?) title The Lord of the Rings: Return to Moria releases on October 24th. Want to visit Hawaii? Check out Fractured Veil, a mutant-filled multiplayer survival game set to release into Early Access on October 18th.

💙 Diversions

🎵 Music:

‌➡️ App or Item: We work 12-hour days and get up for work at 5 a.m. - anything that makes eating more efficient (and quick) is helpful AF. These are pretty tasty.

‌📚 Book: I know they’re young adult fiction, but if you like SURVIVAL and BOOKS, you must read Jim Kjelgaard books.

‌🎮 Game: It's not a video game, but Becca and I will try our hand at some kitchen table-style Magic The Gathering! The last time I touched a card was probably back in…middle…school. It’s been a hundred years, and I remember absolutely nothing. She has been HARDCORE researching and studying and deckbuilding. I may have created a monster.

‌#️⃣ Best Hashtag Moment: I appreciate our new Substack home- I’m really digging the comment setup! Also, the phone app is #SoHelpful.
