Support Local: An Interview with the Creators of Broken Hearts!

Hey PI-fans, A good Thursday morning to you! Recently, we were able to bring in a new Singapore made game: Broken Hearts! We also had the pleasure to sit and have a chat with the creators of the game: Joey Teh (on the right) and Seik Yee Thoo! (on the left)    Q: Tell us about the game and how it came to be?

Hey PI-fans, We're half way through the week! And with that, a new release: Silver Dagger! But what's the difference between this Silver and Silver Coin that released back a few months ago?
