Gaming Furever has released their "Alpha Game Awards" for 2013. Winners include top hits from all platforms, and a special category chosen specifically for furry-focused titles. Voted on by the content contributing staff at GF, the awards reflect a years' worth of fantastic games.
2013 has been an exciting year, not just because of new video games, but new consoles as well! There's been plenty of great games (and some pretty terrible games) and as we move into 2014, what better way to bring in the New Year than by looking back?
Normally, damp or wet fur isn't a pleasant thought or smell, but in this case, it's a very good thing! Five upcoming furry-themed video games have been found on Steam's Greenlight Program, and are given previews in this roundup.
Usagi Yojimbo: Way of the Ronin
Currently available for iOS devices and Google Android and coming soon to Windows and Mac OS X via Steam, Usagi Yojimbo: Way of the Ronin is the first appearance of the lapine in a video game since his adventures on the Commodore 64, back in 1988 — 25 years ago (at the time this story was posted)! This game by Happy Giant is based on the classic comic book series by Stan Sakai. Usagi Yojimbo is renowned for his appearances in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics and television series. In the game, you act as Miyamoto Usagi, the rabbit warrior, on an epic journey to restore order to the land of feudal-era Japan, with only your trusted sword Grasscutter to assist you. In the game, you will battle over fifty different types of enemies, with three boss monsters from the comics.
GamingFurever.com will be hosting weekly game meetups with any furry that wants to participate, encouraging a coming together of the fandom over all consoles and platforms. They will be held on Wednesday evenings for the foreseeable future, and all gamers are invited to attend.
Highlighted games will be featured each week, so players looking for a specific challenge can know they'll find others to play with in certain games. The matches will be live-streamed from various gamers, and participants are invited to stream their games during the event as well.
