The Maw is the Most Adorable Apocalypse Ever

Most apocalyptic video games are bleak and depressing. They’re set during a time where things are going or went horribly wrong. Twisted Pixel managed to take those aspects, cover them is pink frosting and sunshine, tie it up in a bow and deliver The Maw. A similar yet very different kind of game about the… Read More »

Math Apocalypse is every student’s worst nightmare

If the only way to save the world is for me to do basic math, we’re all going to die. Math Apocalypse is an Android app game that tasks you with the tremendous pressure of solving math problems to defeat aliens invading earth. Seems pretty straight forward and totally plausible to me. Aliens walk in… Read More »

The show is set 33 years after the arrival of the aliens where they’re now integrated into the world in a semi-hostile land-share with… Read More »

Tower Offense? Yes, Please; I’ll Take ANOMALY 2.

ANOMALY 2 from 11 bit studios is going to be available for demo at PAX East this weekend and I’m stoked! Why? Obviously, I’m for anything thing that leads with “build war mechs,” but this glee is mainly because I’m a huge geek for tower defense games. Ninja Town is for real my favorite game. I lent it to my mom… Read More »

The Land of The Video Game Apocalypse

Video games and the apocalypse go hand in hand. Player One is always that one guy with shit to do and an appointment on Tuesday trying to make his (or her) way through this mess and help all these people out—how’d they survive before Player One came along? But, we keep coming back to these… Read More »

Watching Falling Skies? There’s an App for That.

Falling Skies, the TNT show about fighting back after a devastating alien invasion. The aliens are serious dicks. they don’t just invade and kill us, or harvest us, or even experiment on us.

This week in the real world

First of all, sorry for being absent as of late. I just didn’t have anything to say and so I didn’t say anything.  But I have been busy. Not buying a house like Char or getting good grades like Ann. Mostly I’ve been playing video games and reading comic books and I got a new… Read More »

Apocalyptic Movie: MONSTERS

I like rummaging through the slush on Netflix streaming and seeing if there’s anything I can sit through. Sadly, it’s not often I can find something in the apocalyptic genre worth sitting through much less worth recommending. The bucket seems to be heavily populated with made-for-TV movies that couldn’t make it on TV and what seem to be student… Read More »

Post-apocalyptic baddies: The possibilities

We here at In Case of Survival talk a lot about the baddies you’ll potentially run into post apocalypse. I have no doubt that there’ll be bad guys aplenty after the world ends; after all, everyone will be fighting for survival. The possibility of death usually doesn’t bring out the best in people. What kinds… Read More »

Post-Apocalyptic Graphic Novels

I’ve been getting into comics lately. Kind of. The graphic novel variety. Sometimes all my shows are on break and I’m not ready for a new book yet but I want to keep myself alarmed and entertained. In these times, I find graphic novels the perfect niche to fill the void. One of the best… Read More »

He was right, too—only those who’ve adapted enough to survive in a particular environment will, well, survive. If you think about it, post-apocalyptic Earth will be natural selection come to life. People who… Read More »
