Available today from Breach Entertainment, Shardlands is a strikingly pretty adventure puzzler set on a desolate alien world filled with bizarre creatures and strange contraptions. And that's why I wasn't paying attention to the first 10 minutes of Zynga's 3rd quarter financial call.

I suppose "more interesting than a Zynga financial call" isn't a particularly ringing endorsement—that pretty much covers everything from small jagged rocks on up. Perhaps I should have said something about the lovely graphics with their unearthly lighting effects, the simple and satisfying single-finger navigation or the wonderful atmospheric soundtrack.

Too late now.
