What a time to be alive. The game titled, HK, is still very early in development, but the creators went ahead and posted a Q&A to the game's development blog. And this is what we can tell ya based off that:

The third-person solo adventure game takes place in a dystopian city inspired by Kowloon Walled City (see real world shot below), and it takes place in the somewhat distant future based off the presence of humanoid robots:



Check out one of the in-game screenshots that have since been released:



Sure, the game isn't as far along as we could've hoped; but based off what we've seen so far it looks like they nailed the cat's movements! And the image that was shared for the game back in October 2015 makes it look like the game will be using Unreal Engine 4.

The guy is pretty much the Bob Ross of gadget-casting. By simply using a Raspberry Pi Zero, a USB hub and clay, Doris (lyberty5) created a SNES that could go head to head with Nintendo's upcoming mini-NES on cuteness alone.

Korean indie game developer Bing Yang has reportedly been developing this game by himself for the last two years; and all out of pure inspiration from the Final Fantasy trailers! 


Look at him with that honesty too:

Bing Yang isn't currently sure which consoles Lost Soul Aside will be released on, if and when it is.



Sure the game looks awesome, but this kind of takes the cake:

Could this be the future of gaming?

RoomAlive is a proof-of-concept prototype that transforms any room into an immersive, augmented entertainment experience. Our system enables new interactive projection mapping experiences that dynamically adapts content to any room. Users can touch, shoot, stomp, dodge and steer projected content that seamlessly co-exists with their existing physical environment. The basic building blocks of RoomAlive are projector-depth camera units, which can be combined through a scalable, distributed framework. The projector-depth camera units are individually auto-calibrating, self-localizing, and create a unified model of the room with no user intervention. We investigate the design space of gaming experiences that are possible with RoomAlive and explore methods for dynamically mapping content based on room layout and user position. Finally we showcase four experience prototypes that demonstrate the novel interactive experiences that are possible with RoomAlive and discuss the design challenges of adapting any game to any room.

It all begins with Kyle's eloquent wit, as seen in the following letter he sent off to Blizzard with the highest of hopes something might work out....



Kyle approaches the matter with impressive candor, talking about how his efforts began with a table dance, until his wife told him to get down; and that he hasn't asked for anything in five years...except for a Darth Vader Pez dispenser, a waffle iron shaped like the DeLorean, and a Walking Deadblanket.

Kyle then asked Blizzard to send him a free copy of Overwatch in exchange for a piece of artwork he created as a gift to them for their generosity. The gift was titled, “Deadpool Licking Some Rock. A Dog Watches.”



And at long last this epic saga wraps up with the following response from a Blizzard representative, who addressed Kyle's previous letter/efforts:

Just a heads up, but this Dwayne 'The Rock' inspired Pokémon comes out swinging in a blaze of NSFW-ish banter. Gotta love when The Rock himself comes on at the end of the video as well, to describe his love for YouTube.

And why the heck shouldn't the man, with this kind of parody gold? But all in all, Machop --> Machoke --> Machamp --> PokeRock.

Four years ago James Young suffered through a tragic, life-threatening accident when he lost his arm and leg after falling in between two train carriages. The subsequent days were a dark time for Young, but he sought solace through a true passion of his--gaming. Young would play his Playstation 4 using his right arm and teeth in a feat of true dedication.

As fate would have it, Konami eventually featured an ad calling upon all interested gamer amputees to enter a raffle of sorts, in which the selected applicant would receive a prosthetic inspired by Konami's Metal Gear Solid. Young was fortunate enough to be selected, and even offer up his two-cents on the prosthetic's design.

The carbon-fiber limb is controlled by muscle signals from Young. He can shake hands, lift groceries, and pick up small objects like coins. Young has already taken the initiative to start up his own fundraising campaign, with hopes to further improve upon the technology for future users (an example being the arm weighs 10 lb, requires harness and gel, and can't be worn all day).
