    One of the world's largest banks has issued an alarming warning about antibiotic resistance — with big consequences for humanity

    Alwa's Awakening sells impressively well on Switch, smashing a PC sales record

    Alwa’s Awakening looks like a pretty entertaining retro game. The title recently launched on Switch, over a year after its release on PC. It’s done VERY well for itself. Record-setting well, in fact. Mikael Forslind, an owner of developer Elden Pixels, revealed today that Alwa’s Awakening sold more copies on Switch in its first week than it did in its first month on PC. An unequal comparison due to the passage of time and the different marketplaces, but something to be proud of, nonetheless.
