If you’ve laid your hands on 4X Space Strategy games or even dabbled with the strategy for a while, you’re going to love what Entropy has to offer.
According the game’s developer, Artplant, Entropy is a “sandbox science fiction MMOG with a strong focus on freeform gameplay and large-scale space combat.” Currently being offered as an Early Access game, players have the opportunity to decide the game’s developmental direction and help create the next-best sci-fi MMO experience.
The Early Access release comes with a host of inspiring features including multiplayer space combat that can hold more than a hundred players simultaneously, a player-driven trading system, a developing dynamic mission system in addition to mining, salvaging and exploring the massive open-world. Since the game is community driven, the community also contributes to the games overall direction in terms of gameplay and other elements.
The game is being made available in three variants – Entropy Colonist ($17.99), Entropy Explorer ($35.99) and Entropy Founder ($89.99). The prices mentioned here are after the 10% holiday sale discount.

In 1983, Dr. Howard Gardner, professor of education at Harvard University, published a theory on multiple intelligence. He proposed eight different intelligence aspects that account for a broader range of human potential in both children and adults.
My Intelligence is a smartphone app that is currently being developed by the lads in Syscotech India. They believe that Dr. Gardner’s theory will help anyone identify their stronger elements of intelligence. They wish to bring about a change in the entire thinking pattern and the way we learn or think.
I found their “About” section to be highly informational and highly recommend you give it a gander.
If you wish to be notified about when the app will be available for a Public beta (testing), subscribe to the mailing list on their website.
