A point-and-click adventure game cobbled together from repurposed Renaissance-era paintings and public domain classical music is not something I knew I needed in my life, but then I saw the trailer for Joe Richardson’sFour Last Things and I instantly wondered how I’ve lived so long without it. Since I could never come up with a better description for the game as Richardson has already done, I’ll simply quote him when he describes Four Last Things as “kind of like if Monkey Island had been made in 16th century Flanders by a time-travelling Monty Python fanboy.” Watch the trailer and you’ll see just how on-point that description is.
Four Last Things began life as a submission in Game Jolt’s Adventure Jam 2016, and following a lot of awards and praise and a Kickstarter campaign it was turned into a full-fledged game and released on Steam in February of last year, where it has garnered very positive reviews from players. It seems like a natural fit to bring point-and-click adventure games from desktop to mobile, and that’s exactly what Richardson is doing on January 25th when Four Last Things arrives on both Android and iOS at a price of $ 3.99. It looks gloriously silly and when things like “Nonsense” and “Piffle” are listed amongst its features you know you’ll be in for a good time when Four Last Things arrives next week.
We posted about the colorful tactical battling game Tactical Monsters Rumble Arena back in early October of last year, and with the game already being available in Early Access on both Steam and Android for the past couple of months we finally have an official release date for the iOS version of the game: January 25th. Tactical Monsters Rumble Arena is all about battling opponents in PvP, and with cross-platform play and more than a million players already downloading the game from Steam and Android during its earlier release period, there should be a decent player pool for opponents when the game arrives on iOS in a couple of weeks. Here’s a brand new trailer to give you a look at the game in action.
Ahead of the game’s release on iOS, Tactical Monsters Rumble Arena is available for pre-order and developer Camex Games is offering a promotion that will see players getting a 500 Gem Promo Pack for free by pre-ordering the game. Just mash on this link on your iOS device to be taken to the pre-order page in the App Store, and then join the Camex Games Discord server to find out how to redeem your in-game gift when the game launches. I’m loving the look of Tactical Monsters Rumble Arena and with its positive reception on other platforms so far it seems like it will have some real potential to become a huge competitive game when it arrives on iOS January 25th.
Jay-Z’s high-fidelity music streaming service Tidal is offering a 12-day free trial starting on December 25th. In comparison to normal trials—in which the start and end dates are determined per subscriber—the Tidal trial starts and ends for everyone on December 25th and January 5th, respectively. No credit card is required for the trial, so you can partake without worrying about an unexpected bill. The trial includes access to the premium tier, as well as the lossless Hi-Fi tier.

If you like high-stakes esports or just enjoy playing and seeing others play the hit game Summoners War [Free], then mark November 25th on your calendar because that’s the day Summoners War World Arena Championship will take place. The best Summoners War players will make their way to the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles to find out who’s the best of the best and, in the process, share $ 50,000, which isn’t bad at all. 16 players will fight it out, and they come from pretty much across the world. Part of what I like about esports is precisely how global most of them are; it’s fun seeing different styles clashing.
The World Arena Championship will also host a Summoners War convention of sorts, with the whole place transforming into Sky Island. If you’re a fan of the game and live in the area, you should probably head that way (you can get free tickets here) and take part in all the contests and events while also taking home plenty of swag. If you can’t make it to the venue, you can always watch the event on Twitch.
