BGN Interview with Gordy Haab, Composer of ‘Iden’s Theme’

I was so fortunate to be brought up in a house full of music. Naturally, rhythm and blues (R&B) was around but, to be honest, we listened to a lot of classical music.

BGN Video Game Review: ‘High Hell’

There are three important buttons in High Hell, the new and rambunctious Devolver Digital first person shooter: shoot, interact, and jump.
