‘Cover Your Eyes’ Follows a Broken Family Trying to Survive Against the Supernatural

You had it all. Loving spouse, children, a cat – a great family dynamic. Unfortunately, Cover Your Eyes, shows off a darker side to marriage and trying to keep your family safe from terrifying monsters.

A loving mother of two children is a fierce thing to get between, and with your guidance, you can keep it that way. You’ll be in the shoes of a mother who has just learned of her husband having an affair, and in the same turn, destroying their happiness.

She doesn’t have much time to sulk, though, as a strange occurrence has descended upon the town and abnormal creatures are appearing everywhere. Your husband is nowhere to be found, either. It’s up to you to keep your kids safe while searching for your unfaithful husband. And also your house cat. It’s a family member too, after all.

Surviving won’t be easy. You’ll need to make quick decisions on whether to make a run for it or stay and fight. Shotgun shells are finite, and you may need them to face off against sturdier foes down the road. Keep your eyes peeled as you explore, for those who loot and scavenge will be the most rewarded.

‘DOOM’ and ‘DOOM II’ from Bethesda Will Be Updated Soon to Add Support for 60fps, More Aspect Ratios, New Add-Ons, and a Lot More

When Bethesda surprise released updated versions of DOOM ($4.99) and DOOM II ($4.99) on the App Store and Google Play, the ports had some issues. While many people including myself were annoyed at the forced login requirements, Bethesda patched the ports. An update was eventually released to fix the music and lighting issues on all platforms. Today, Bethesda announced a new update coming to both ports with some surprising additions and some great features.

As of now, Bethesda has said the updates are coming soon to “all platforms”. While there has been no specific mention of iOS and Android, the previous updates also arrived on mobile despite only seeing mentions of console platforms in most places. The updates will add support for more aspect ratios, 60fps (the originals were not 60fps), curated add-ons, and more. This was revealed in the 26th anniversary stream after the 46 minute mark in the video here. Both games will be updated for free. I can’t wait to play SIGIL and replay Final DOOM through the patches when they arrive. Final DOOM and SIGIL will be available in both DOOM and DOOM …read more

Next-Gen Xbox Will Have a Name That Describes Its Purpose

Microsoft has confirmed that its next-gen Xbox will once again have a name that is built around its purpose rather than following the PlayStation’s numbered system.

Stevivor asked Xbox chief Phil Spencer at X019 if naming the next-gen Xbox – currently known to the public as Project Scarlett – has been difficult due to the naming conventions of previous Xbox consoles. “It hasn’t,” Spencer said.

Compared to Sony’s example of having numbered consoles that form a sequence – PS1, PS2, PS3, PS4, PS5 – naming an Xbox seems like it could be more difficult. First there was the Xbox, then the Xbox 360, and after the Xbox One.

Accel and Index back Tines, as the cybersecurity startup adds another $11M to its Series A

It was just a couple of months ago that Tines, the cybersecurity automation startup, raised $4.1 million in Series A funding led by Blossom Capital, and now the Dublin-based company is disclosing an $11 million extension to the round.

This additional Series A funding is led by venture capital firm Accel, with participation from Index Ventures and previous backer Blossom Capital. The extra cash will be used to continue developing its cybersecurity automation platform and for further expansion into the U.S. and Europe.

Founded in February 2018 by ex-eBay, PayPal and DocuSign security engineer Eoin Hinchy, and subsequently joined by former eBay and DocuSign colleague Thomas Kinsella, Tines automates many of the repetitive manual tasks faced by security analysts so they can focus on other high-priority work. The pair had bootstrapped the company as recently as October.

“It was while I was at DocuSign that I felt there was a need for a platform like Tines,” explained Hinchy at the time of the initial Series A. “We had a team of really talented engineers in charge of incident response and forensics but they weren’t developers. I found they were doing the same tasks over and over again so I began …read more
