Not content with simply publishing cool new games, Sydney studio Nnooo have announced a brand new title for you to sink your teeth into. Blast Em’ Bunnies brings together the unexpected (but entertaining) combination of an endless shooter and adorable cartoon rabbits for your enjoyment.  In addition to some colourful screenshots and cool trailer, Nnooo have been kind enough to bring the game to the EB Expo this weekend, so you can start ridding the world of some seriously evil rodents.

Towncraft Review

There’s nothing quite like a bit of crafting to while away an hour… or five. The simple joy found in sourcing resources, deducing item combinations and crafting your very own world from nothing is one that has firmly grasped onto the minds of gamers everywhere. TownCraft is the latest game to hone in on our craving for creating, this time taking the process one step further by encouraging you to carve out your own little town, complete with shops, taverns and a bevy of citizens.

This enjoyable adventure into furniture making and workforce management is the first title from Flat Earth Games, a Sydney studio headed by brothers Rohan and Leigh Harris. If those names already sound familiar to your gaming ears, it is likely you have come across their work in other areas of the field; Rohan is a contributing writer to Player Attack and BigPond Arena, while Leigh is also known as the founder of the Australian and New Zealand games industry and trade publication MCV Pacific.

Thatgamecompany are the toast of the town, re-defining gaming and setting new benchmarks yet again as the studio launched their third title Journey on the PlayStation Network last month.

Journey surpasses its predecessors soaring so high with its mystical scarf; it has earned the coveted title of fastest selling PSN game of all time. Not an easy feat for an indie developer who dared to be different.
