If its ocean does host simple life, that means a spacecraft could ‘sniff’ it – and, potentially, discover signs of life. That's what NASA wants to do with its Europa Clipper mission; go sniff a moon. Called the Europa Clipper, NASA's spacecraft will conduct approximately 45 flybys of the icy moon during a three- or four-year mission. The Europa Clipper will confirm whether the moon has that subsurface ocean, and search for signs of the other two criteria. So, who will get to Europa first, NASA’s

Review: Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality is a short but sweet experience

Adult Swim took what is arguably one of the biggest TV shows on the air right now and basically created an extended episode that players can play through in the form of Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality. It’s a short game but it’s filled with a variety of activities that both challenge you and keep you super engaged. The only major issues I had with Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality was that there were some very long loading screens and some issues with the tracking. While the price might be a

A Russian designer transformed a kid’s drawing into a real, and real strange, game

In 1995, one eager young videogame fan submitted their own three-tier level of fantasy platforming, a dark dungeon spread over two notebook pages. Return to the Evil Warlock's Castle, or "Возвращение в замок злого колдуна" in Russian (she calls it BB33K for short), is that game. The dripping water, for instance, creates puddles that grow larger the longer you play and which you can eventually drown in. The paintings come to life, and the black circles are a killer ball that grows tiny legs to cl
