Evening Reading - October 16, 2020

It's night time in America, which means it is time for Shacknews Evening Reading.


Good evening, Shacknews. You've done it. You made it to Friday. What a week, hey? You've done well and you deserve to take some time to relax over the next couple of days. But before you disassociate from the world for two days, let's take a moment together. How about we look over some articles posted on Shacknews today, and then take a stroll through some memes? And again, please, register to vote. I'm counting on you.

In case you missed it at Shacknews:

And now... Other Stuff From The Internet!!!

Game Maker's Toolkit is an excellent channel

The insights into game design practices and methods is incredibly enlightening. I always walk away with a bit more knowledge after watching one of these.

Mario Kart Live made better with pets

Some real-life moving obstacles make courses all the more dynamic.


Look at this tiny little thing. Cute!

Oooh, another Steam sale you say?

As for games you need to play right this minute, there's Disco Elysium. Which, coincidentally, is on sale right now! Have a cool video someone made of Disco Elysium.

Love the dance.

Having an Impostor on your team that's never been an Impostor before sure is tough. Here's a guide on how to be an Impostor if you're struggling.

iPhone 5G

I wonder what the main selling point of the iPhone 5G is? I mean, iPhone 12. Speaking of which, did Apple do a good job of selling you on the iPhone 12? Come and let us know in this week's Shack Chat.

Gotta love a good color.
