Games for the Summer holidays

As the summer break draws near, our minds turn to travelling, relaxing, being with family & friends and generally away from the stress that the workplace can bring. Playing games is the very thing that many people turn to when they want to relax and take their minds off work. 

Of course, we aren't recommending that you ignore the beautiful scenery, fun activities or good friends that are part of your holiday, but getting to your chosen location can take a while and what better way to pass the time in the queue at the airport check-in, train journey or flight with some fun, interesting gameplay!


Crazy Belts

Crazy Belts

This simple, but taxing game from Jemchicomac reveals what goes on behind the scenes when you wave goodbye to your suitcases after checking them in at the airport. Decide which colour and type of lugge goes where, but don't make too many mistakes or the passengers will complain - everyone hates lost luggage!
Travel the world and build up your in-game airmiles with which you can eliminate the in-game ads that support the free version.
Available on Mac, Linux, Windows (
3,99€ on Desura), Android and iOS (both free with in-app purchases) 



The Wolf Among  Us

The wolf Among Us

Engrossing yourself in the narrative of a good book is a staple for long journeys, but the same immersion can be had with a tablet; Telltale Games are great when it comes to narrative with their award winning title 'The Walking Dead' emulating the tense mood of comic of the same name. Their next episodic adventure game 'The Wolf Among Us' has just finished with its fifth installment and was just as nail-biting. This game got a high recommendation from well respected game designer & developer Kim Swift  ('Portal', 'Left 4 Dead') during this year's Gamelab conference and afterward -

The complete game is available on Steam for 11.49
€ (currently half-price), iOS appstore for 4.99€ (per episode) or Xbox, Playstation, Windows and Mac via the Telltale Games site (prices differ).


(more) Airmiles for games!

Finnair's game for airmiles promotion

Not quite a game, but if you are a member of the Finnair Plus loyalty program, you can earn games, in-game currency or gift vouchers as you fly! Granted, the scheme is quite limited at the moment (could we say it is a 'pilot'?), but how many times have you actually got something back from the airmiles you have accrued? The little that might come from the average amount of flying people usually do could be just what you need to get you that copy of Remedy's 'Alan Wake: American Nightmare' or an iTunes gift card.
Have a look at the promotion here -

Enjoy the break


At Grandyo towers, we are also going to be winding things down during a short summer break; we will still be around and will be attending Gamescom just as we return, so we'll have a gift or two for our friends and loyal fans, of course.
It has been an interesting year so far and we hope to ramp up the work when we return in full.

Have a great holiday, whatever you choose to do. If you're using your social media account during the break, let us know if you chose any of these games (or others) by tagging us on Instagram, mentioning us on Twitter or on Facebook.

Don't forget to send us (and your mother) a postcard!
Team Grandyo
