Good musical Monday morning, Quick Droppers! Everyone loves waking up to a lovely flute softly humming a classical tune, with the flooding in from the window as birds chirp around you. You wake up refreshed, and think to yourself, "Today is going to be a great day!"
Yeah that's a fun fantasy and all, but unfortunately birds are annoying in the morning. However, we've got some great stuff on todays list that are full of musical wonder and talent that will hopefully make your morning just a little bit better.
Do you ever want to just roll around and do nothing sometimes? If so, we have the game for you. Katamari Damacy is a lesser known gem on the Switch that boasts relaxing gameplay, a calming atmosphere, and a killer musical score that won it the 'Outstanding Achievement in Original Musical Composition' in its original release in 2004, on the PlayStation. It's been brought back to life on the Switch and is truly one of the most unique puzzle games we've found so far.
Yes, those are buildings on that giant rolling ball. Entering the world of the game, you start off as a small little being. Your goal is to grow as large as you can in a certain time frame, and you do that by rolling around to collect items smaller than you. Different game objectives include beating the clock, collecting a certain number of items, collecting special items, and more! As you grow bigger, the items you can collect will begin to get larger as well. You may start off with only marbles or bits of fuzz, but if you're efficient you can get yourself to the point of picking up bridges, boats, buildings, and who knows what else.
Promote a more relaxing gaming environment. Let's be honest, first person shooters and survival games aren't always "calming". However, this game is the epitome of satisfaction. It's the game equivalent to finally cleaning your room after 3 weeks, or reorganizing your entire kitchen. The calm nature of the music mixed with the satisfaction of cleansing the area around you of little things until it's beyond spotless is just what some of us need to unwind as we ignore the actual mountain of clothes that are piling up in that one chair in the room that we all keep but don't sit on. We know you have one. But it doesn't matter now, enjoy unwinding with Katamari Damacy and roll your worries away!

Game Global Summit 2021
An epic few days of game creators and networking, online! The Game Global Summit ran last week, and it was an awesome couple days filled with talented panelists ready to share their knowledge with game creators alike. From EA to Riot Games to Blizzard, top employees from all the major gaming companies shared their knowledge and asked questions at this valuable round table. With so many of us stuck at home, Game Global provided a friendly, fun, and inclusive environment for people all around the globe to ask questions, learn, and grow their knowledge of the ever-expanding world of game design. As always, we will continue to keep you posted on these type of events!
The web is abuzz with news of the PS5 restock. The console was a massive hit when it came out, and was completely sold out in many stores across the country. It's been out for around 3 months now, and is still currently one of the hardest consoles to acquire these days. Best Buy sold out of them just a few days after their restock, and it seems like other stores will have a similar trend once they get those bad boys back on their shelves. Luckily for all of us, Matt Swider from TechRadar has been using his Twitter account as a PS5 restock tracker, so if you want the updates on where they'll be back on shelves, you can check him out here!
Thanks for reading today. We hope you all have a great week!
