09/24/2015 - Cole Powered Games Announces New PC Title Concrete Jungle
Concrete Jungle – A City Planning Deck-Building Game

September 23, 2015 – Stroud, UK ColePowered games LTD. has released the city planning deck-builder PC game 'Concrete Jungle' .

Concrete Jungle is a new take on the city building genre that swaps micro-management for a more strategic and puzzle-orientated style of city planning.

You have a deck of selected cards which you can use to place buildings. Each building will affect it's surroundings in different ways. The aim of the game is to clear city blocks by gathering the required number of points from your residents, giving more room to build. As the city grows, bigger and better new buildings can be added to your deck!

As you get opportunities to hone and refine your deck, residents will demand more from you. You'll find yourself inadvertently creating zoning puzzles- playing against your own past planning decisions.

Alternatively engage in competitive city planning against challenging AI or local players. Take it in turns to place buildings in the same city and battle over the affection of your citizens!

Concrete Jungle was successfully 450% funded through Kickstarter in November 2014.

The game is avilable through Steam and Itch.io for $15.99/£11.99 with a launch discount of 10%.

ColePowered Games LTD. is the company name for one-man developer Cole Jefferies' creations. Visit online at

Finally, in the ‘Empire’ mode, players could choose to adopt one of many distinct roles or to experience the epic history and its outcomes through a different methodology of warfare in replay.

09/21/2015 - New Info on Student Gaming Championships
Student Gaming Championships announce timetable for leagues and plans for worldwide expansion

Student Gaming Championships is a weekly gaming league for students of schools, colleges and universities. The first season is due to start in October 2015 and is already expected to be bigger than originally anticipated.

Manager ‘Deepak Pathak’ commented: ‘Our research told us there was a gap and demand for a league that reaches out to all students and across genre but when we had over 79 expressions of team interest in the first week of announcement we were a little taken aback. Originally we planned for Season 2 to be UK only again but with more games, however it now looks likely that we will be able to expand into other countries earlier than expected. The vision is big, it’s to become the FIFA for gaming. Minus the Sepp Blatters of course.’
