If you think you can enjoy the definition of budget game design, this one might make you laugh.

Minimum Review
With so many shooters crowding the marketplace, it’s refreshing to see Minimum take the low-fi route through Steam Early Access.

DAILY MANIFESTO

A Little Conflict Of Interest? Just Maybe?

Posted on Thursday, March 12 @ 13:13:10 Eastern by Duke_Ferris
A couple days ago in the Manifesto, I reported on a British Dept of Health ad campaign that seemed to be selectively targeting video games. Well there's more news.

So this magazine ad running in England caused some controversy for singling out gamers and it's irresponsible use of the word DEATH. Many of you pointed out the complete lack of accountability for junk food and television.

Bad enough, right? It gets worse.

That ad is part of a campaign called Change4Life, which is trying to educate people about the problem with obesity in the UK. Part of the funding for that campaign comes from a coalition of businesses called Business4Life.

Business4Life has pledged £200,000,000 (no that's not a typo) to the anti-obesity campaign, and in exchange the Department of Health has granted them influence over the editorial content of the campaign.

Now many of those companies are benign, but others... Well I've made a little photoshop for you updating the ad to make it a little more honest. Here are some of the companies and their products that are behind this video game smear campaign.
 

 
It must be the games, right? Because all these companies say it's the games that make your kids fat.
