Alpha Colony for Only $50,000?

Alpha Colony needs to raise only 50k from our upcoming Kickstarter campaign to see the light of day. While 50k isn’t anything to shake a stick at… I know it’s a lot of money to me, and it probably is to you as well, but is it enough to make a game? No. Games Cost […]

New Kickstarter Launch Date: October 19th!

Broken Toilet?: There’s an App for that

It’s no wonder that most people don’t know how to perform minor repair on their own toilets.  Toilets are, well… gross.  Most people would rather not think about how their lavatory works.  Which is why they are usually unprepared when faced with a clog, leak or running toilet.  In fact, 18% of household toilets run […]
