I loved playing Rollercoaster Tycoon 2 as a kid, but I never put this kind of effort into it. Impressive.
This is a good reminder to grab OpenRCT2 to start playing again.

It’s official, folks: Rare has posted the official version of We Shall Sail Together as a Tavern Tune on their YouTube channel. Listen to it below.
I mentioned in my previous post on We Shall Sail together that this was coming. Now that it’s here, please excuse me while I listen to this on repeat for a while.
A previous coworker has moved into independent game development and has released a new game: Star Shield 6.
I’ve had it on my phone for over a month now and it’s a lot of fun. It requires more thought than first meets the eye, yet games are fast enough to play on the go. It’s even free!
In my last post I mentioned how much I loved the sea shanty that accompanied the E3 trailer for Sea of Thieves, but I wanted to know more. I did a bit of searching in the Sea of Thieves forums and sure enough there is already a thread about it. Turns out I’m not the only one clamoring to buy the song.
At E3 2016, the game studio Rare announced a new game they are working on, Sea of Thieves:
Simply put, Sea of Thieves is a game about being a pirate, and everything that comes with that – and it’s a shared-world game where you’ll encounter other crews of players.
Let’s be honest: I don’t know too many people who haven’t wanted to experience the life of a pirate at least some point in their life. This is awesome.
I recommend watching the hilarious E3 gameplay video shared by the team. To say the least, it looks like a ton of fun and I’m looking forward to the release. Unfortunately, there isn’t a release date yet, but I’ll be getting it right away when it comes out.
Also, that intro video and music sets the tone perfectly. I don’t know if the music was custom recorded or not, but I would buy it in a heartbeat.
Update: I found out more information about the trailer music.
Yesterday I found out that Civilization 6 is due to be released in October, 2016, and it looks great so far. I stopped playing Civilization after Civilization 4 to recover some time, but I may get back into it this fall as it’s just so good.
