Every good tale starts in a bar, with weary adventurers sat round a glowing fire recanting their stories of treasure, monstrous enemies and heroic deeds. And it’s from this noble starting point that Knights of the Drowned Table by RillyBoss Studios begins its escapade, with you grabbing a mug of the local ale to give to one of the three characters in the bar to hear – and relive – their tale. Whilst that initial premise sounds good what follows are tall tales that could do with more embellishment.
When videogames make their way to Steam Early Access developers usually have a rough idea how long they plan to be in development prior to a full release, with most titles tending to take no more than a year. Subnautica developer Unknown Worlds Entertainment started the process three years ago, in that time adding a myriad of updates including virtual reality (VR) support for both Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. Now the studio has announced a January launch event to celebrate the 1.0 release.
In an era where everyone is becoming more concerned about their health, whether that’s by eating the right foods or getting some regular exercise, videogames aren’t necessarily seen as a healthy life style choice. Yet with virtual reality (VR) that’s not the case, as roomscale experiences get you up off the couch and moving around, with some even going so far as to offer players a workout.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
