- Local VR Developer Foresight Studios is set to release their new game, ElectroSwing. Built to run natively on the Oculus Quest 2, ElectroSwing is an exhilarating VR experience like no other. The gameplay is simple enough, swing through the air and avoid touching anything. Each level has it’s own ElectroSwing song, and you must reach the opposing platform before the song ends. When you do, the game unlocks a seed system allowing players to create completely new levels that they can share with other players.

- Major props to Chris Reisner, who took home 11th place at the Pokemon Go World Championships, held in London! Chris shared “Winning the Milwaukee Regional for a spot in London was an incredible experience. I had the chance to meet so many people I’ve interacted with online over the years. The competitor in me knows I could’ve played a little better, but top 12 at the first ever Pokémon GO World Championship is a feat I’m proud of. Hopefully I can get to Japan next year.”
