Available today from Breach Entertainment, Shardlands is a strikingly pretty adventure puzzler set on a desolate alien world filled with bizarre creatures and strange contraptions. And that's why I wasn't paying attention to the first 10 minutes of Zynga's third-quarter financial call.
I suppose "more interesting than a Zynga financial call" isn't a particularly ringing endorsement -- that pretty much covers everything from small jagged rocks on up. Perhaps I should have said something about the lovely graphics with their unearthly lighting effects, the simple and satisfying single-finger navigation or the wonderful atmospheric soundtrack.
Too late now.
