Battlesloths 2025: The Great Pizza Wars

One of the best parts of beginning Atomic Moo (aside from creating the world’s best fire breathing super cow) is all the fun stuff people send me to review or post about. So, yeah, when I see something in my inbox called Battlesloths, I want to have a look.

Coming up on Tuesday (June 6th), Rooster Teeth Games will be releasing Battlesloths 2025: The Great Pizza Wars on Steam. Check out the official synopsis:

Battlesloths 2025: The Great Pizza Wars is the fast-paced multiplayer competitive twin-stick shooter of your slothy dreams. Compete with up to 4 human players or play against some tough as nails AI sloths should you be short of friends. Use a myriad of weaponry, each with their own strategies, to destroy your enemies in a quest to collect the most pizza.

The ultimate gun-toting, hoverboarding, pizza eating sloth on the block! Revel in the silliness of the slothpacalypse, shoot everything that moves and start hoarding pizza!

With Battlesloths 2025: The Great Pizza Wars, sloth gaming has been re-defined. It’s now bigger, better and coming soon; with more weapons, hats, online play and tons of fresh levels!

Now, I don’t have a lot of time these days, but I do have a steam account, so this may be something I look into. Maybe! Mayhap! However, you should at least check out the trailers below, because they do show sloths fighting over pizza. Very much worth a look!.

Also, now that I thunk about it, I don’t have as much time to go out and find cool creative projects like I did back in the day. So, if you’re a creator of a comic, web comic, games, video games, illustration… what ever is cool, kind of geeky, and totally yours; the let me know! I’d love to post about it here and share it with our many loyal fans. Hey Neko.

Cheers!

Magfest 2017

Cosplay, Gaming and Music from Beatdown Boogie!

We’re back! That’s right El Moochadores, we (the intrepid Brothers Moo) have survived yet another swirling storm of disaster and chaos (aka: our lives) and are now (some how) wiser, better looking, and ready to blog. So, let us celebrate this triumphant return by getting back to some cool geek creativity.

Recently Distractotron visited MAGfest 2017 and they brought back a whole bunch of cool photos and video work. MAGfest (Music and Gaming) is a “four day-long event dedicated to the appreciation of video game music, gaming of all types, and the gaming community.” According to the website the event runs 24 hours a day (wtf SDCC? get it together!) and offers “consoles, arcades, tabletop, LAN, live video game cover bands, chiptunes, vendors, guest.” Cool, maybe Atomic Moo and the Murray Brothers Creative can attend a future MAGfest. We’re cool too, right?

Anyways, check out the videos (parts one and two) below along with a smattering of images taken from the Distractotron Facebook page.

Enjoy!

Bears vs Babies – A Card Game.

A monster-building card game from the creators of Exploding Kittens


Okay El Moochadores, I feel like hell. I’ve caught yet another cold (seems to happen about once a year) and despite being a sweaty ball of snot and coughs, I’m going to try and write about a really great looking Kickstarter project. Unfortunately, because I’m sick, I don’t think I’ll be going to this years Comikaze (aka: Los Angeles Comic Con… please change the name back to Comikaze). Which sucks, because despite being in L.A. (yuck), it is actually one of my all time favorite comic book conventions. Anyways, my hot toddy is kicking in, so onto the post!

Stop the baby army!!! Okay, you’re just not gonna find another card game that has such a fantastic objective. Sorry, but Magic: The Gathering totally missed the boat when they made a card game about wizards and not monsters fighting babies.d39617ff289ac277015c3056c3014786_original Which is exactly the point of this game from the makers of Exploding Kittens. In Bears vs Babies the objective is to “build handsome, incredible monsters who go to war with horrible, awful babies.” Groovy. According to the Kickstarter, the game has competing players “build” monsters from cards drawn in the center of the table. The monster cards (bears) are used by the players to make these really cool mash ups, while the baby cards go in the middle of the table to form an army that must be stopped. It looks like the game also has a wonderful way to screw over your fellow players by provoking a baby army that might be stronger then your fellow players monsters, too soon. The core deck will begin with 80 + cards but check out the KS for more information and booster packs. The Kickstarter for the card game has already hit over 47,000 pledges with a wopping $1,700,000.00 in contributions, so the good news is, this game is totally getting made. However, there are 20 days left (as of this post) so get your butts over there and buy a first round edition of this big chunk of awesome!

Check out the KS promo video below!

Titanic: Honor and Glory!

Watch the Titanic Sink in Real Time!

Okay, this is really cool. Well, I guess I should say, “I think this is really cool”, because I’ve been fascinated with the sinking of the Titanic since they discovered it on the ocean floor in the mid 80’s. I totally remember watching Return to the Titanic (with Telly Savallas!)titanic2 and getting caught up in the story. Anyways, my own geeky wonder aside, there’s a group of people (Vintage Digital Revival) trying to make a game based on this historical event. Titanic: Honor and Glory recreates the RMS Titanic in almost every detail using Unreal Engine 4. When finished, players will join a mystery that takes place in the last five days of the Titanic’s voyage. Now that’s all really cool, but what really got my attention was a video that shows a real time sinking of the ship! The video runs over two and half hours, and it’s interesting, but I guess there’s also a little bit of a spooky vibe to the video. Check out more of the game details below along with the real time video and a promo video for the game!

Cheers!

Beginning in the city of Southampton, England, which is being reconstructed on an expansive scale and with as much accuracy as our ship, the player is on the run from the police. He’s accused of a terrible crime, but most importantly, he’s innocent. He must pursue the true culprit, requiring the player to find a way onto the Titanic just before it departs.

Playing through all five days of the voyage talking to passengers, gathering clues, and unraveling a grand mystery all while avoiding detection from authorities, the hero, Mr. Robert Morgan, has no idea that his whole world is about to change. When Titanic collides with an iceberg in the middle of the North Atlantic, the player must race the rising waters to complete the mystery, prove his innocence, and, most importantly…. survive.

Wicked Kingdom

Illustrated Playing Cards by Wylie Beckert

Hey El Moochadores, I just came across another great looking Kickstarter for an illustrative playing card set. Wicked Kingdom by professional illustrator Wylie Beckert features hand painted fantasy art work with a narrative. Here are the Kickstarter details:

Printed by the USPCC on casino-quality Bee card stock, Wicked Kingdom3e904993cfc85ff7eeae001b534dc08c_original is an art-rich 54-card poker deck, featuring dual-identity face cards with a narrative twist and obsessively detailed, hand-painted artwork throughout. Hand-drawn pips, elegantly watermarked number cards, and unique not-quite-two-way backs add to the intensely illustrated flavor of the deck.

Wicked Kingdom is more than just another deck of pretty pictures (although it has those too, in spades). Each face card has a personality, a backstory… and a hidden agenda. With every card, the plot thickens… The artwork and backstories for each card are featured in the art book, alongside process write-ups, work-in-progress snapshots, and notes from the creation of the traditionally painted images.

This Kickstarter is already massively successful with over $80,000.00 in contributions, but there’s still time to contribute and get in on some of the special rewards just for the campaign. As of this post there are nine days left.

I’ve posted some sample images below along with the kickstarter promotional video from Beckert. Check it out and then hit the links above to learn more about the project, rewards, and to just see some amazing illustration work!

Enjoy!

The Moo Against Humanity

WE RIDE AGAIN! Holy shit, we did it! We made (for better or worse… ok worse) another episode of The Atomic Moocast. I won’t wait for your applause.

On this episode of the world’s greatest, low budget, podcast Chudd and I discuss our preparation forCards Cherry City Comic Con. This’ll be the first time we’re tabling at a con and we hope to bring our art, comic, and podcast to Salem Oregon to some level of success. We hope. Many thanks go to John Roach and Nicole Brune for this opportunity.

Then we get on the Skype with fellow Brethren Moo Dave (D20) Smith and Chris (Buttery) French and played some online Cards Against Humanity. It was… interesting. Those of you with a politically correct vibe are gonna want to fuck right off for this one.

One other note about this episode: I got a new headset/mic and it’s not great. The audio seems just a bit off, but I’m working on it!

So here we go folks! It’s been far too long and we got a podcast hot ready for your ear holes! Hurry! Go now and secure a comfy spot! Surround yourself with many a salty snack and fizzy drink! Then plug in, turn on, and enjoy the best damn podcast your friends don’t know about!

    An Atomic Moo Gaming Review of Ubisoft’s new Tom Clancy Game

    An Original Article by Atomic Moo’s Chief Gamer: Numbers

    When it comes to jingoistic military fiction, one of the masters is undoubtedly Tom Clancy. His novels have been translated into multiple languages, adapted into movies, and deployed around the world like the freedom-defending characters depicted in his works. Though he is no longer with us, his name lives on, attached to video games which have little, if anything, to do with his writing. Games such as Ubisoft’s Tom Clancy’s The Division.SeIWbDy
    Recently, many brave Agents were dropped into virus-ravaged New York City, and your friends here at True Game Truths were among them. These are our stories of Ubisoft’s Tom Clancy’s The Division’s beta’s shenanigans. This article specifically deals with The Division’s beta test and in no way reflects the final retail product. At least, we certainly hope it doesn’t.

    Once again, Ubisoft calls a pre-release stress test a “beta,” which is clearly not the right term at this point into the game’s development. While it did not include the entire full version’s content, it is infinitely more stable than a true beta would be. Consider it a demo.lK7Sycr
    After launching the mandatory proprietary Uplay client, making a Uplay account, adding friends to said Uplay account, and allowing the game to update through the Uplay launcher (even if you own the game through Steam and have a populated Steam friends list), you can finally load up The Division. Players expecting a main menu will have to wait through a “beta gameplay tips” video.

    101 CHAMPIONS CHALLENGE

    New Soccer Card Game from Italian Designer, Guido Gagna

    Okay, I’m not even going to pretend I know anything about soccer (aka: “football” to all our foreigner buddies out there), but I was recently asked to check out this new Kickstarter for a turn based card game, and I have to admit, it looks fun. Also, way to go to anyone willing to invent a brand new card game. 101 Champions Challenge is a two player card set designed by Italian designer Guido Gagna. The game features 90 cards, all with incredibly cool illustration and design work, and pits the “red” team against the “blue” team. Initially, the sets have been designed for English and Italian languages, but other languages will also be included if the card game gets its funding. Which is a good thing too, because if there isn’t a Portuguese version, then there’ll be a lot of pissed off Brazilians out there. Don’t fuck around with those Brasilados and their futebol. Anyways, I’ve posted an image of the rules below, along with a few sample images, but for more information about the game, and rewards, please visit the Kickstarter page at the link above.

    Enjoy.

    New Kickstarter for Italian Designed Playing Cards!

    Hey El Moochadores! As you may already know (or maybe you don’t know), we’re into design around here, and often we’re introduced to new projects that incorporates cool graphic design work that we’re willing to share here. For example; check out this Kickstarter for a deck of cards, by Italian design student Alessio Lombardi, that uses a high quality production with a minimalist design to produce a striking deck of cards. Created along with Andrea Lombardi (wife, sister, cousin, mother… single!?)Image_One the cards represent the legendary four elements of wind, water, fire, and Earth. Wait, no Fifth Element!? Where’s the card with a minimalist Milla Jovovich and her crazy orange hair? heh. Anyways, According to the kickstarter; the cards (when funded) will be printed to high quality standards through Makeplayingcards.com, and will feature a “linen finish with air pockets for greater durability.” There are a lot of good rewards to encourage contributing, so go click the link above to learn more. Below I’ve posted a few sample images from the Kickstarter page along with the promo video, but more information about the cards can be found at elementalplayingcards.com (nice ASMR vibe off that site) or their Facebook page.

    Enjoy!

    Aurion: Legacy of the Kori-Odan

    Logo Aurion 02

    New Kickstarter for Central Africa’s First Fantasy Action RPG!

    Hey El Moochadores, and indie game lovers, currently there is a Kickstarter for the first fantasy action RPG to come out of central Africa! Which, is frigg’n awesome! Aurion: Legacy of the Kori-Odan is the first game to be produced and published by Kiro’o Games which is based in Yaounde, Cameroon (south of Nigeria, but north of Gabon, but you probably already knew that…).img012 The game is a 2D adventure of the young prince, Enzo. On the eve of his coronation (and wedding day) “ Enzo is thrust into trouble as he finds himself tied up in a coup and then exiled with his new wife, Erine.” Enzo and Ernie must now work together and use their Aurionic powers to fight enemies and win back the throne!

    Currently Aurion’s game developers are looking to raise funds for final development of the game which will include; “updates to the Interface, beautiful new hand-drawn characters and animation, and possibly toward new hires and support for additional platforms.” The Kickstarter has just begun, (33 days remaining as of this post), so get in now and help them reach their goals. This is a unique chance to help (probably) the only game developer in Cameroon produce and distribute a game that strongly incorporates African culture into an RPG! And you can help make that happen! So do it! NOW.

    I’ve posted a few screen shots below along with the Kickstarter promotional video. Unfortunately the video is some strange, and long forgotten, language (Frunch, I think it was called), but there are subtitles to help communicate to would be contributors. For more information about the game, and rewards for contributing, please visit Aurion Kickstarter or the Kiro’o Games website!
