Why do you build my deck, buttercup?

The Rice Digital Weekly Digest
The Rice Digital Weekly Digest
Hello everyone! Your COVID-stricken editor here, taking a moment out from attempting to sleep and moaning like a zombie to bring you the Rice Digital Weekly Digest as usual. Now there’s commitment for you.
This week saw the exciting announcement of Super Bullet Break from PQube, and having played an early version of this game… well, more accurately, becoming quite, quite addicted to an early version of this game… I can safely say that I am super-hyped for this one later this year.
There’s no official release date yet, but if you like the sound of it, be sure to add it to your wishlist on Steam. Wishlists are a really helpful and important metric for developers and publishers prior to a game’s release, so even if you’re planning on picking the game up on PS4 or Switch, take a moment to hit that Wishlist button and show your excitement.
Anyway. Fuelled by Flamin’ Hot Doritos (surprisingly spicy), Pacific Punch Monster and my sniffy cup full of Olbas Oil and boiling water, let’s review this week’s happenings! And do me a favour and cross your fingers I shake this stupid disease off quickly!
Pete Davison, Editor
