Canadian Game Developer’s Sensational Strategy: Turn Based Text RPG

Based off of 1970’s whiskey running in the United States, new Ontario Game Company, KIKO Gaming, released a new text turn based Real Time Strategy [RTS] game called Whiskey Mountain Wars. If you ever wanted to become a whiskey runner but can not afford the jail time for bootleg whiskey, now is the chance to do it safely in the comfort of your own home.

“It’s very exciting and fatally addicting.” says Don Wedderspoon; golf professional.

Whiskey Mountain Wars, released on August 27th 2009, is an online text based MMORPG/RTS game which will challenge gamers with a multitude of quests, turn based attacks, and a unique system of jobs that will benefit you and the clan you join.

“It’s the World Of Warcraft for text based RPG’s”, says Devan Penner-Woelk one of the games developers.

Whiskey Mountain Wars is a community based RTS; a player can play individually, however, some of the special features of the game are clan based, meaning, you would have to join together with other members of your clan in order to complete tasks, or quests. Whiskey Mountain Wars is like no other browser based text MMORPG type game before it. It features a new and creative story line, a new concept on jobs and skill set, a more community/clan based approach and new concepts that no game has ever tried before.

About the company:
KIKO Games is a Canadian game development company, based in St Catharines, Ontario, and is striving to rewrite the book on intelligent game design; from text based RTS, and Real Time Strategy, to multi-player online browser based sports games.

Mexican Author Goes Online With Latest Work And Hits All Times Download High

Mr. Volnie is the author of a dozen of successful published fiction novels, ranging in themes as diverse as Sci-Fi, History, mysticism or police procedures, all of them received enthusiastically by his ever growing number of followers and fans.

This time, he has surprised his readers with a reconstruction of the Gospels, a recreation of the antique scriptures as analyzed from a rational, critical, sometimes hermetic point of view. Mr. Volnie’s version of the story leaves little room for faith, as miracles are unveiled, prophecies are explained and underlying motifs gradually surface to meet with human nature.

As for the reason to give away his writing instead of making profit, the author explains in his blog www.alejandrovolnie.com.mx (translated from Spanish): “A fast spread of my work throughout the Spanish speaking world is worth giving up the down payment of any publisher”. It is to be said that printed books are expensive in Latin America if its price is compared to people’s average daily income. “My work is for everybody and I don’t expect anything else in exchange than the comments of my readers” he also states in his blog.

To download Yehoshua el mago (Yehoshua the Magician) in Spanish simply go to www.yehoshuaelmago.com.mx and follow the instructions. This is the only way to get it at the present time, although it’s easy to foresee that printed copies of this fifteen hour reading will soon be piled up in most bookstores all around the world, available in several languages, as this amazing tale deserves it.

New 3am Celebrity Gossip Site By Mirror Group

The Mirror Group has announced the upcoming launch of 3am.co.uk, a new, standalone site based on the Mirror newspaper column of the same name, revealing the latest celebrity gossip.

3am takes the world famous 3am recipe of gossip, exclusives, and attitude-laden fun-poking at the world of celebs – and for the first time delivers it to a whole new audience via a brand new bespoke website.

“In 2000, 3am made everything that had gone before it in newspapers look tired and boring. Here was a fresh new attitude in reporting showbiz and the genre has never been the same since,” said Richard Wallace, editor of the Daily Mirror. “Now we’ve done it again – this time online. 3am.co.uk is innovative, clever, funny and brilliantly designed. We believe it will grow to become a must bookmark for highly engaged audiences wanting the very best in celebrity news and comment. And we believe the commercial opportunities in having such an audience are very exciting.”

The website promises a unique voice in the world of celebrity news and celebrity gossip.

Fans will be able to vote celebrities up or down from the A-List to the Z-List.

They’ll also be able to pass judgment on whether outfits are working or not, if the right person was booted off the X-Factor, and, of course, who is winning in the Katie Price / Peter Andre PR battle.

Instant breaking news will be delivered via “bleats” from the site’s trademark wicked sheep.

And a special dynamic 3am.co.uk calendar will mean readers never again miss the unmissable. Like, for instance, the date Kate Moss’s latest Topshop range hits stores.

Showbiz fans in a hurry will be able to get their 3am.co.uk fix in double quick time, by using the site’s groundbreaking “3am-in-a-flash” feature.

The new 3am site from The Mirror launches on the 18th August.

Lua Hadar sings jazz influenced by pop, funk, Latin and international cabaret. This astonishingly talented, Broadway-influenced performer has garnered raves around the world.

After graduating summa cum laude with a B.A. in Theatre Performance, Lua attended Manhattan’s celebrated Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre and The Dalcroze School of Music.

Her love for languages led to a 5-year residency in Italy, with a Verona-based Italian theatre company, where she played hundreds of performances on tour in Spain, Switzerland and all over Italy.

Her company, New Performance Group, produces original material and music performances, and delivers instruction in the performing arts.
