ANGRY Birds is now available in ‘augmented reality’ – letting you play the virtual game on any table or floor using your phone’s camera. Today marks the launch of a new sequel for the addictive mobile game called Angry Birds AR: Isle of Pigs. Angry Birds first launched in 2009, and quickly became one of the most iconic iPhone games on the App Store. Since then, it’s spawned 18 sequels – and even two feature films – helping game studio Rovio turn over around £255million a year. But despite endless sequels, the game hasn’t really changed since the beginning – until now. Angry Birds AR lets you put a stunning 3D version of the game on any surface you like. It uses the same technology that powers Pokémon Go, allowing you to see tiny critters in the real world using your phone camera.

Slay the Spire is an excellent roguelike deck building game, but don't just take my word for it. Even in Early Access the game has a 10,000-strong 'overwhelmingly positive' rating on Steam, and has inspired an active subreddit and speed running community.

I called up lead designer Anthony Giovannetti—who conceptualised and built Slay the Spire with Casey Yano—to get a sense of where Slay the Spire came from, and where it's going. The two computer science majors dabbled in Flash and iPhone games as hobbyists before leaving their jobs to take a gamble on on this game, which is their first full-time game development project.PC Gamer: You teased a robot in one of your recent updates.Anthony Giovannetti: Sure. The new character is going to be a robot, it's going to play very differently to both the Ironclad and the Silent. It … [Read more...] about Slay the Spire designer discusses new characters and card game inspirations
