Hack The Planet: Early Access Granted To Hack ‘N’ Slash By Alice O'Connor on May 7th, 2014 at 3:00 pm. As a Zelda-y action-adventure game, Double Fine’s Hack ‘n’ Slash is impossible to complete. Obstacles are impassable, enemies are unkillable, and puzzles are unsolvable. That’s fine though because oh ho ho, Hack ‘n’ Slash is really a code-hacking puzzle game which happens to be wearing Zelda-green jimjams. Almost a month after its oddly premature launch trailer, Hack ‘n’ is now on Steam Early Access at £14.99.

Google Timer This simple “trick” will allow you to keep track of time for a classroom task, for group work, for a timed test, or for making hard-boiled eggs. You won’t believe how easy it is… Google Timer The Banner Saga review The Banner Saga is a tactical RPG that's been pushing its way into my thoughts even when I'm occupied with other things. Its epic tale tells of a sun that no longer sets, the death of the old gods and a land on the brink of war - but it is the more mundane burdens of leadership that weigh most heavily on my mind. I'm haunted by the disheartening discovery of spoiled supplies that dented the morale of a beleaguered caravan, and the foolish gambit that saw a decorated warrior lost to the ignominy of freak accident. The crushing guilt of losing people to starvation because I purchased a trinket to protect a favoured archer in battle, rather than ensure a surplus of supplies for the journey ahead, acts as its own damning indictment of my leadership. You too may come to rue these misfortunes or, by exercising better judgement than I, you might avoid them entirely. Dialogue choices are best made as judgement calls rather than trying to second-guess the game's intentions.

Google Sheet Interactive Dice! Roll a single or double dice with a keystroke using — wait for it — a Google Spreadsheet!!! Google Sheet Interactive Dice This template is an example of a clever way to start with a Google Spreadsheet, add a few formulas, change a little of the formatting, and end up with something really cool! Note – At some point, I hope to provide video instructions so that students can learn some programming skills while creating their own interactive dice. But in the meantime, I wanted you to be able to start using this.
