As a Gamer – and father of three gamer boys, Good Game TV and the younger-viewer focused Good Game Spawn Point are must-watch weekly shows. To the point where our TIVO was upgraded with the add-on external HDD so we could store practically YEARS of these shows! Season record. Done. So it is with much excitement that the kids tipped us on this little gem this morning during an ABC re-screening of this week’s episode of Spawn Point. At the end of the show, next weeks teaser-trailer confirmed that the brilliant Windows 8 / Windows RT game Game Dev Tycoon will be featured on the show! Woot!
Game Dev Tycoon is a fantastic Windows 8 title – allowing you to take up the role of an indie game developer setting out to take on the world, and make inspiring game titles. It lovingly recreates the recent history of video gaming from the 80′s through to the present day. With a feature on the Good Game TV show, it becomes a leading title to sell the platform and opportunities for Dev’s in Microsoft’s Windows ecosystem.
If you haven’t already seen our in-depth interview with Patrick Klug of Greenheart games – then just click on the pic below to check it out.
Make sure you tune in next week to see what Bajo thinks of the title, and how they position the availability of the game (platform)!

Well, well, that must be embarrassing to iPhone fans who have been hating on the Modern UI in Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8.
9to5Mac reports, “according to multiple people who have either seen or have been briefed on the upcoming iOS 7” that the new user interface created by Apple design guru Jonny Ives with be “very, very flat” , devoid of “all signs of gloss, shine, and skeuomorphism seen across current and past versions of iOS” with a level of “flatness” approaching recent releases of Microsoft’s Windows Phone “Metro” UI.
In addition Apple has been discussing and testing ways to add more ‘glance-able’ information and system options panels, like Notification Center, to the software.
Apple fans worry that Apple’s new design direction will leave existing iPhone apps out of step with Apple’s new modern UI, ironically creating the same kind of experiential divide as between the Modern Start Screen launcher in Windows 8 and the old Windows applications.
iPhone fans are of course horrified, with one saying:
I really want iOS7 to change. But I don’t want it to be totally flat like Windows Phone 7/8.
A balance between the two would be nice if done properly.
I hate plainness. It’s like going back to Windows NT or something. (And I really really hate WP7/8).
To them we can just say its time to get with the future, and try on something a bit more Modern
