Friday the 13th's server issues are being fixed, developer says

Tyler has enjoyed his time with Friday the 13th so far (expect his full review this week), but the multiplayer Jason vs Teens game has not launched in the best state, with plenty of Steam reviews complaining about connection issues and bugs. If this is you, perhaps you'll be mollified by this forum post from developer Illfonic, which explains the problem with the servers (basically, far more players concurrently playing the game than were expected), while going into a bit of detail about the fixes planned.

Prep your snag list – Constructor remake is out now

After a couple of delays (builders, eh?) Constructor [official site], System 3’s remake of their estate-building strategy game from 1997, finally launched on Friday.

The Long Journey Home PC review

The Long Journey Home PC review

I’m lost in space: totally stranded, low on resources, and on the lam from a gelatinous loan shark. Two of my four crew members are critically injured, meaning there are no spare hands to man my ship’s weapons. Worse still, I’ve just used my last tank of Exotic Matter, the resource that powers the Daedalus-7’s interstellar jumps, which means I have two options: scoop up enough EM for another jump by orbiting a star, or mine it from one of the many planets within range. The former will likely kill one of my weak crew members through radiation damage and all but obliterate my ship’s hull.  The latter will require me to meticulously probe each planet to find the one or two with the right resource and safe enough landing conditions. I opt for the orbital scoop, but as I plunge into the star’s gravitational pull I’m intercepted by a Raxact raider who offers me a different choice: blood or coin? I don’t have the coin, and my ship is in a critical state of disrepair, so I flee in exchange for taking a few hits. I flee straight into the sun though, filling my view with injury updates and death notifications as the screen fades to black and sombre music swells.
