One of the problems with mobile gaming isn’t so much the games themselves, but the download sizes. This holds true with not just your initial update of a big game, but also the subsequent updates that games and apps get that also are big. If you have unlimited data on your plan, then this doesn’t matter much either way. However, if you don’t have unlimited data, the last thing you want to do is chew up a large chunk of your data downloading a 1GB game update.

Justin Roiland is the co-creator and lead voice for the Adult Swim cartoon Rick and Morty. Well he has now founded his own Virtual Reality game development studio called Squanchtendo, and promises to make some great and humor-filled VR games for all Virtual Reality platforms.
While Vivendi is currently trying to takeover Gameloft in a hostile bid, it looks as though there are hints that this isn’t the only company Vivendi has eyes for.

The support comes in the form of an official plugin which is actually now available for developers to grab and use to make Daydream games already.
You may or may not remember back in August of last year when we reported on Google making the official announcement that they would be using Khronos’ Vulkan platform for Android developers to use its low-overhead graphical APIs. In a nutshell this is supposed to improve performance by providing developers more direct access to the GPU itself. Developers can manage memory and multiple threads on their own instead of leaving it up to the driver.
Back in May of last year we reported on a Kickstarter campaign for a platform, called Bloxels, where code-illiterate individuals can make games using a drag n’ drop system with a board game looking set of tools. This system basically allows you to set up each stage using a square area (game board) where you place different colored cubes into the spaces provided.
