Skincraft

We cannot deny the fact that Minecraft never loses its magic. Despite of being in the game industry so many years, the game is still a top notch. Minecraft is continuously improving their features on both Pocket and console editions. One of the most interesting parts of Minecraft is that you can now do some customization using third party software or game apps. Skincraft is more than just a flash game. As what the title of the game suggests, Skincraft allows you to customize your own skin for Minecraft. This also allows you to export or save your work and input it to Minecraft.net or just directly upload it from your phone (if you are playing the Pocket Edition).

Skincraft features a very friendly and easy-to-use interface. As soon as the game begins, you will be prompted immediately to the customization page. Simply click the New Skin button from the main menu to start customizing. This takes you to a page that features two separate panels. The panel on the right features the avatar and everything you added while the left panel displays all the options. You’ll start off with either a blank avatar or those predefined skins. Once done, simply hit the Go Button for a more detailed personalization. To start, click the New Layer Button which will allow you to apply premade skins or better yet customize your own through the Custom mode.

In Pre-Made , you can customize your avatar using the details that are already available. These items are divided into four main categories including the Head, Upper Body and Lower Body. Each will show more sub-categories. Take note that every time you add a detail, you need to create a new layer until everything is being applied. In Custom mode, however, everything can be created using your pen tool and you must apply the changes in pixels. Once you are satisfied with your work, you just have to hit the Export/Save button to create a .Png file (which you can upload directly to Minecraft), .txt file (which allows you to edit your creation) or just share it on your social media. I personally tried importing the skin my Minecraft Pocket Edition and it works! Go ahead and start making your own too!

Lost Signal

If you love Sci-fi mystery and horror, then this game is probably a great fit for you. Lost Signal is an RPG game that will take you to a creepy mission of a Class D Personnel working under an investigative agency in which your mission is to investigate paranormal activity all around the world. If this plot sound familiar to you then you have probably came across the infamous SCP Foundation stories. Lost Signal is merely inspired from some of the fictional paranormal stories written by SCP. You are portraying a so-called Class D Personnel supervised by the agency so it is safe to assume that you are a prison inmate if the game is faithfully adapted from the series. Presented in a visually striking 3D atmosphere and adorned with enigmatic elements, this game is definitely something you wouldn’t consider playing alone in the dark.

The game begins in a small contained room. The mission will start through examining your surroundings until you meet an Agent who will send you to your first dangerous task. Take note that only the Class D personnel rank is in charged with the life risking missions. Once you earned enough influence (something you gain from each successful mission as personnel) you can soon become an Agent who is responsible for investigating paranormal events. The game’s strongest point is the visuals. It is played in a 3D first person perspective that is perfectly matched with enigmatic and eerie atmosphere. You can explore every corner of the map and if you find an item that can be interacted; the game will ask you if you are willing to examine it (E).

You can also collect weapons and ammo along the way which can be used to shoot nearby enemies. What really makes the game a lot more interesting is the fact that each mission is entirely based on SCP Foundation stories. These include the Paranormal gas Mask (SCP- 1499), The Random Door (SCP -249), The Recursive Room (SCP-970), Labyrinth In the Tower (SCP-432) and a whole lot more. The developers are constantly updating their system with new artifacts and paranormal events which instantly provides the game an impressive replay value and decent longevity. You might encounter minor bugs and glitches but with continuous development and updates, Lost Signal truly has a huge potential to become a great RPG. Overall, the game is impressive, unpredictable and absolutely worth-playing.
