Tof puts cash on the barrelhead for a ticket to One Show Only, and finds that this traveling show has fresh material and a compelling style, but may be best appreciated by those that like their circus interviewing card games without a net, as it were.

I was a pretty small kid in 1979, so my recollection of the Iranian Revolution consists of hearing about hostages on the news and wondering where, exactly, Iran was. Nearly 40 years later, we can try to experience what happened on the streets of Tehran via a new adventure-style/interactive fiction title, 1979 Revolution: Black Friday. The game has been available for a couple months on Steam, but is coming to iOS in just a few weeks.

Paradox Interactive is known for heavy strategy games with an historical bent. Titles like Crusader Kings, Hearts of Iron, and Europa Universalis.

Fallen London. Ah, yes. I was there when London was stolen by bats into the cavernous ‘Neath, the Fifth City barted to the ancient Echo Bazaar and its petty, proud, enigmatic Masters. ...wasn’t I?

I'm not sure what's going on at Choice of Games, but it's clear they have mermaids on the brain. One of their latest books, The Daring Mermaid Expedition, had you searching for the scaly critters to obtain entry into the Royal German Marinological Society. Tomorrow, Choice of Games is launching their latest book and it deals with merfolk as well. It's called The Sea Eternal and, instead of having you on the outside looking in, it drops you right into the fins of the merfolk and their culture.

It's too bad Tof isn't around this week, as one of their favorite games has just arrived on the App Store. That game would be Fallen London, the text-based adventure game set in a gothic Victorian London that, for some reason, has been pulled below the earth. Previously, you could only play the game within a browser, but now Failbetter Games (still my favorite developer name) has released a native app for iOS Universal allowing you to play it on the go.
