Kickstarter - The AAXA S1 Mini projector for Switch


The AAXA S1 Mini projector transforms the Nintendo Switch™ from a 6” single-player screen to an enormous 100” multi-player screen that is portable – allowing gamers to game anytime, anywhere.

The AAXA S1 was conceptualized when AAXA’s engineers watched 4 children struggle to play a racing game on a 6” screen at a crowded airport – an endeavor that ended with some shoving and tears. The AAXA S1 solves this problem by providing a mobile big-screen for the Nintendo Switch (and Android phones) allowing all gamers to enjoy playing without eye-strain, neck cramps, or shoving!

Ubisoft talks about why older players might want to check out Starlink: Battle for Atlas

Ubisoft has made it clear that they originally set out to create Starlink: Battle for Atlas for younger players, but obviously they'd like people of all ages to check the game out. In an interview with GamesIndustry, creative director Laurent Malville discusses why older players can have fun with the experience as well.

"In the beginning, we developed the game with 8 to 12 year-olds in mind, but as we progressed with development, we observed that older players were also interested, especially the open-world and the systemic aspects. The game is designed for younger players primarily, but I think that a lot of older players will have a blast with the game. The big thing for us was to make sure we didn't talk down to younger players. Younger players today want to play those big, AAA, open-world experiences, but often the age ratings of those games are not appropriate. It was a point for us to have this big open world game, with some advanced mechanics, but that would be friendly for younger players."

Shovel Knight book by David L. Craddock available today

In 2014, Yacht Club Games released its very first game, Shovel Knight, a joyful 2D platformer that wears its NES influences on its sleeve. This unlikely pastiche of 8-bit inspirations manages to emulate the look, feel, and even the technical limitations of nostalgic titles like Mega Man, Zelda II, and Castlevania III—imbued with a contemporary sense of humor and self-awareness. But how is a fundamentally retro game created in the modern era? And what do the games of the past have to teach today's game designers?

Based on extensive original interviews with the Yacht Club Games team, writer David L. Craddock unearths the story of a fledgling group of game developers who worked so well together at WayForward Games that they decided to start their own studio. From the high highs of Shovel Knight's groundbreaking Kickstarter to the low lows of its unexpectedly lengthy development, Boss Fight presents a new master class in how a great game gets made. Get ready to steel your shovel and dig into this fascinating oral history. For Shovelry!

David L. Craddock lives with his wife and business partner in Ohio. He is the author of Stay Awhile and Listen, a three-part series that chronicles the history of World of WarCraft developer Blizzard Entertainment and Diablo/Diablo II developer Blizzard North; Break Out: How the Apple II Launched the PC Gaming Revolution by Schiffer Publishing; and HERITAGE, a young adult fantasy novel.
