New Kickstarter Game Reimagines King Arthur As An XCOM-Style Dark Fantasy RPG

NeocoreGames, the developers of Warhammer 40K: Inquisitor and the Incredible Adventure of Van Helsing trilogy, have unveiled their next game on Kickstarter, which focuses on the dark side of King Arthur’s legend. King Arthur: Knight’s Tale reimagines the Arthurian legend as a turn-based strategy RPG in the vein of other strategy games like XCOM, while also injecting hardcore elements from roguelike games.

The designer reveals how he dialed in his well-honed aesthetic.

“You will encounter moments and times that will put dirt or even damage to your clothes. Let it happen. Make it happen,” reads Jakob Hetzer’s “Info” page on his website. This should give you a bit of insight into the kind of designer, and person, Hetzer is. A comb through his Instagram or blog should also suffice. As a society, we’ve come to overuse the word aesthetic, but Hetzer’s got a vise on his, and he has for a long time now. Moving around the world might do that to you.

Hetzer was born in Detroit, but grew up in Germany, and now resides in L.A. There’s a level of grit that comes with his style. Clothes are meant to be worn, and they’re meant to have utility. Hetzer has had his shoulder to this wheel

An Israeli-style steak sandwich from Mike Solomonov and Pat’s King of Steaks

Mike Solomonov, chef-coowner of Israeli-inspired restaurants including Zahav, Dizengoff, and Goldie, happens to be a good friend of Frank Olivieri, owner of Pat’s King of Steaks in South Philadelphia.

Frankie is still talking about their trip to Israel last year, where he ate a shawarma while FaceTiming his crew back at the shop. This happened to be one of many shawarmas the two ate.

When Resy, a restaurant-reservation service, wanted to partner two chefs in eight cities for culinary collaborations called The Classics Remix, a Solomonov-Olivieri mashup was a logical choice.

This is actually a repeat performance. Solomonov took the grill one night four years ago, and the proceeds of his sandwich went to Broad Street Hospitality Collaborative.

Still, they met recently at Pat’s to firm up the build of the Israeli-inspired steak sandwich, which will be sold as a meal ($25) at Pat’s (Ninth and Passyunk) from Oct. 16

Atlanta, GA, Sept. 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Young King Hair Care is the first and only natural hair care line internationally crafted for multicultural boys.

Founded by husband and wife Cora and Stefan Miller, the duo searched but couldn’t find hair products that suited the needs of their son and other boys with textured hair. There were plenty of options for women and girls, but nothing for boys.  

Research confirmed their theory and they also discovered that black purchasing power grew 114% in the last 10 years and that last year alone black spending grew $1.4 trillion.

With over 20 years of combined experience in marketing, social responsibility and communications they got right to work. Together the Miller’s surveyed over 100 Moms
