No Man’s Sky was supposed to be one of the most exciting game releases of 2016 – what went wrong?

A while ago, we wrote about the mind-blowing ramifications of No Man’s Sky. If anybody has studied The Simulation Hypothesis, it’s pretty crazy to think that the very world we experience could be nothing more than a computer simulation.  Well, now our theological presumptions are going to be tested even further, with the crowd-funded game […]

What do you get when you mix improv with a human rights disaster? Dear Leader, a new Kickstarted board game by Tim Hutchings, who was kind enough to provide an early edition to us at Echo Base. The game is easy to learn and asks its players to be on top of their creative game. One […]
