Poogie!

Hunting monsters is hard work and, sometimes, hunters need to unwind. Petting an adorable Poogie is the perfect way to get your mind off those razor-sharp Anjanath fangs that closed on you just moments ago. Pet it (the Poogie, not the Anjanath) the right way and it’ll eventually start warming up to you, even letting you pick it up and take it all over Astera! You might even be rewarded for your kindness…

Worm Game

Google has launched one final game for the Stadia console as a “goodbye” ahead of it’s official shutdown this year.

The game is “Worm Game” which Google says was “a humble title we used to test many of Stadia’s features, starting well before our 2019 public launch, right through 2022” and adding “It won’t win Game of the Year, but the Stadia team spent a LOT of time playing it, and we thought we’d share it with you. Thanks for playing, and for everything.”

The game is quite simple as players will be tasked with controlling a worm as it tried to eat fruit that appears on screen. As the fruit is eaten, the worm gets bigger, which is a lot like the retro game ‘Snake’, but with a lot more to it.

Enjoy.
