We recently told you about the Kickstarter for the dungeon-crawling role-playing game, Rogue Wizards. In Rogue Wizards you are a wizard searching for treasure and battling demons in dynamically-generated dungeons. We told you a bit about the game, but we didn't mention anything about the game's crafting... well, until now.Posted in: Get Crafty with Rogue Wizards

We at Curse are extremely excited to announce a partnership with Hi-Rez Studios which is sure to take your SMITE experience to the next level. You can now step up your games by using Curse Voice to organize and destroy the opposition!
Chatting with teammates has never been easier. Simply create sessions with the click of a button -- you can launch right from in-game and start coordinating over our low-latency servers all for FREE. Curse Voice integrates fully into the SMITE client, providing you with an unmatched overlay experience.
This means you can easily create and share voice sessions while in queue or during god select, and you'll even see voice notifications next to god portraits while you play! Never worry about manually creating and sharing sessions, either, because Curse Voice automatically detects and matches you with teammates running the software.
Best of all? All players that play a game of Smite while using Curse Voice before August 31 will receive a code to claim a free 200 gems, and one lucky player between now and July 18th will also win an additional 8000 gems!
Haven't played the game before? SMITE is a free-to-play online battleground between gods. Choose your deity and jump into the fray, using the powers you've been granted to triumph over your opponents in 5v5 team matches from a 3rd person perspective. It's a tactical, mythical game which puts you into the thick of the action to move and fight your way through dynamic battlegrounds.
Lastly, to celebrate SMITE and Curse Voice combining forces, we're proud to bring you an amazing giveaway! One Grand Prize winner will reign supreme with a new Alienware X51 and 8,000 SMITE gems! Five first prize winners will get 3,500 gems to start off their quest in the hottest new MOBA on the market. We'll see you on the battlefield!

Today we emerge from the darkness as Daylight from Zombie Studios becomes available for PS4 and Windows PCs. Daylight is a procedurally generated psychological thriller that has the player taking on the role of a woman named Sarah, who wakes up in an abandoned hospital with nothing but her cell phone and no idea how she got there. The challenge becomes navigating through the hospital, a maze of passages that is different with every play-through.
Daylight is the first game to be released running on the new Unreal Engine 4, bringing new visual thrills to your escape. Along with these graphics comes an excellent set of sounds and music to accompany your eerie and sometimes starling journey as you work to find clues that will shine some light on your situation or tools like flares and glowsticks that will do likewise in a more literal sense. If you're interested in seeing a little more about this great title, check out the video below:
Looking for more info as you're playing Daylight? Don't forget to check out the Official Daylight Wiki here on Gamepedia!
