A sublime combination of fantasy board game and card game, Australian developer League of Geek’s Armello has been one of my go-to competitive strategy joints since it first hit the scene back in 2015.

Melbourne digital and visual effects college CG Spectrum has just announced its 2017 scholarship entries, and this year is a cracker if you're a student keen on breaking into game dev or animation: there's $500,000 in placements up for grabs including internships with award-winning Aussie studio League of Geeks.
Armello hit early access today. I've been playing it this afternoon and it's pretty good! Gorgeous, as expected, but be warned: as advertised, it's very much a card game, so don't go into it expecting a more video game-like RPG experience.
For fantasy buffs of a certain age, there's a series of books dearer to our hearts than Lord of the Rings or even -- dare I say it -- Harry Potter. I'm talking about Redwall, the kid-friendly epic that reads like Games of Thrones with furry little animals instead of gratuitous raunchy sex. Unlike those other series, however, Redwall has remained impervious to any sort quality adaptation. This has left Redwall lovers (like yours truly) feeling sadly jilted by the as-yet-unfulfilled promises of a true video game adaptation.
