North Star Games is looking for Alpha testers for their upcoming Evolution video game. Do you like telling people what you think? Do you like free games? This might be a match made in heaven. Sign-upbefore April 22nd to get free access.
Yes, you heard right. We have built a rock star team of developers, artists, and designers to take our recognized brands to new platforms. Follow their journey on the North Star Digital blog. To make room for the digital team, we had a little fun smashing down walls at the office. (Dom burned 431 calories for the making of this gif):
EVOLUTION VIDEO GAME
Our goal is to set the bar for digital board games. Evolution will be a beautiful, full-scale video game for both PC and mobile gamers with a simple tutorial, challenging AI opponents, and online play. Look for updates from North Star Digital, including info on development updates and new projects, on our development blog, Facebook and Twitter.

BRETT NOLAN, FOUNDER OF APP ADDICT
Brett Nolan has covered iOS apps on AppAddict.net and various podcasts since the birth of the App Store. As a childhood fan of tabletop games, he and his identical twin brother would often craft their own (embarrassing by today’s standards) board games to play.
We had the privilege of meeting Brett at PAX East to play a quick game of the Evolution video game. Check out his first impressions:
