Carto Encourages Players to Look at the World in New Ways

If this year has taught me anything, it’s that we can’t control what happens in life. We can often, however, influence outcomes by carefully rearranging the landscape of our attitudes and decisions. Doing so, we find paths, make connections, and build relationships.

Anker PowerPort III Charging Bricks

My apartment building was constructed about 80 years ago, and as a result we have exactly one electrical outlet per room. You can imagine how this might pose logistical challenges for a technology enthusiast like yours truly.

I’m stuck using power bars, extension cables, and careful load balancing to make sure all our devices get power without overloading any circuits. So when a product emerges that allows me to consolidate, reduce, or remove items from outlets, I get disproportionately excited.

Plague Inc. The Cure

Several months ago, I was contacted about a secret project.

My friends at Ndemic Creations—makers of the über-popular Plague Inc. and Rebel Inc. games—were working on something new for Plague. An expansion of sorts…but on a scale unlike any previous addition.

It was a new mode that would entirely flip the gameplay perspective; instead of playing as a disease wreaking havoc on the world, you would play as humanity itself, defending against a raging pandemic.

A timely idea.
