Skiing Yeti Mountain | Proceeds to Nepal

25 May, 2015

 

Skiing Yeti Mountain is a new game from Sydney-based studio, Featherweight Games. The game sees you “carve your way through hundreds of levels as you search for the elusive Yeti. Weave through trees, skid over ice, launch off cliffs and get to know a cast of bizarre locals in this top-down extreme slalom adventure.” The fun game, however, has a serious side. Tim Kaldor–one half of the team–has pledged all of his revenues to victims of the Nepal earthquakes.

Tim explains:

“This is a lighthearted game, but it was made at a serious time. Having lived and worked in Nepal, this game was created with the beautiful Himalayas fresh in mind. The recent earthquake which devastated the country has left so many people without homes and other vital infrastructure, including my girlfriend and her family, whose village was flattened.

I will be donating my profits from this game to the rebuilding effort. Please consider joining me and donating to any reputable organisation for the rebuilding effort in this wonderful country in need.”

For the fifth year running, The Game Awards has transpired to celebrate the year that was. And like years past, it was yet another forgettable show that seemingly felt worse than in years past. There were highs for sure, but they were brought crashing down by some painful lows. Though the question I ask myself every time The Game Awards happens is just who exactly is this show for? The Game Awards isn’t the sole awards ceremony for the video game industry, but it’s by far the biggest and most well known. It’s been described as “The Oscars of Gaming” by the New York Times, and it’s...

There’s always a major announcement or three at The Game Awards, but Microsoft may have upped the ante with a full-on system reveal. The console previously known as Project Scarlett is now officially called the Xbox System X, and we got a look at its unusual design. Microsoft is still touting this as the most powerful console they’ve ever built, and even gave a quick look at its controller. It looks similar enough to the Xbox One controller, but with the much-needed and welcomed addition of a Share button. No further details about the console were revealed, except that it’ll...
