GOG Easter egg lets you play Pong and Snake using the Konami code

GOG has a new (or at least newly uncovered) Easter egg that lets you play Pong and Snake on the site. As the official GOG account explained on Twitter, all you have to do is go to GOG and enter the famous Konami code: up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A. You don't necessarily have to enter the code on the homepage, but I'm not entirely sure which pages do and don't work, so you may as well place it safe. Oh, and be sure to press Start in your head for good measure.

It's called (brace yourself) Wet Dreams Won't Dry, and publisher Assemble Entertainment says it's legit. Larry is back, against all odds, and his titles are still groan-worthy. That said, the art on this one actually doesn't look half-bad. And with a new-age Larry on the horizon, now's as good a time as any to look back on the history of the cult-classic adventure games, as MEL Magazine did in their excellent write-up on the series' origins—and its unexpected role in a banking disaster.

Astroneer 1.0 will increase co-op beyond four players and add player customization

Astroneer, the open world survival and exploration sandbox from System Era, is now in its second year in Early Access and aiming for a 1.0 release at the end of 2018. Its trailer at E3 announced the December release for 1.0, and if you watch closely you can pick up some hints for a few things it plans to deliver. Astroneer currently supports up to 4-player co-op, but a scene near the end of the trailer shows more than four astronauts running around together.
