  • Zwift merges indoor fitness with massive multi-player online gaming

    At its core, Zwift is indoor cycling software. But layered on top of its functionality is a community that in the two years the company has been operating has grown in both scale and shear strength.

For the first time in 150 years, the historic entertainment brand is completely overhauling the show and building… Read More

  • VOEZ is an addictive anime-themed rhythm game

    VOEZ is a new game out of Taiwan that is climbing the app gaming charts. It is part Rock Band, part DDR, but in a karaoke-esque setting. Put simply, VOEZ is an anime-themed rhythm game.

    Chameleon Run launched a little over a week ago and has been heavily promoted by Apple. Admittedly, I love this game and I am not the only one.
