Canadian Artist is Releasing a JRPG Inspired Indie Game Called Godproof

An inclusive, story-driven, action RPG with funky music and engaging characters!

Help Nigel Grimstead fund his latest game Godproof, an inclusive, story-driven, action RPG!

EAST YORK, ON, CANADA, July 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Godproof is about pushing back the darkness, to discover the unforeseen truths of your very existence! Play as Raiden, a young swordsman determined to return home, accompanied by the bubbly sorceress Eve. Slay cosmic horrors, and make some very interesting friends along the way!

The goal of the kickstarter is to help pay for the—current and future—licences and equipment all used to make this game a reality. Nigel has been developing this game using RPG Maker MV on his 2013 Mac Book Pro he has been using since high school. There are still certain programs he requires, however, he does not have access to them because the current hardware is unable to use the latest applicable operating systems. Nigel needs to upgrade his equipment so he can deliver the best content possible!

Nigel is asking for $5000 CAD for Godproof's kickstarter campaign. He has reached 40% of the goal so far, but the campaign has only 30 days left to reach 100%. Contributors have the opportunity to purchase a limited reward that allows you to be in the game, make your contribution soon!

>> https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nigelgrim/godproof <<

"What does “Godproof” mean?" Godproof is NOT intended to be anti-religion. The name is what best describes the main character Raiden, and his natural immunity to the powers of omnipotent beings, hence god-proof. Nigel wanted to design a game that truly empowered the player, without being overkill. That’s when he thought, “What if they were immune solely to gods?” and ran with that.

"What inspired Godproof?" Nigel took inspiration from all the fun franchises he love, such as Devil May Cry, Stranger Things, Elder Scrolls, Dark Souls, and many more. He loves DMC to bits, but not everyone can play fast action-based games like those. Nigel made compromise using RMMV engine’s Final Fantasy-style turn based battle system; using a multitude of plugins to make the combat more fast-paced and interesting, without overcomplicating it.

Godproof will be released on Steam for PC and Mac OS users by August 2022

Gracias a este subsidio federal, otorgado a pequeños negocios afectados por la pandemia de COVID-19, la reconocida firma podrá recuperarse y seguir adelante.

Este dinero ha llegado en un momento crítico. Aparte de ayudarnos a sobrevivir a la pandemia, también nos permitirá mejorar el negocio, darles trabajo a más empleados y salvar a varias familias.”

— Roberto Ramos, fundador/presidente de Cubaocho.

MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, July 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Cubaocho Art Museum, Inc. ─firma que cobija al emblemático Cubaocho Museum & Performing Arts Center, de la Calle 8, en el famoso vecindario miamense de Little Havana─ acaba de obtener más de medio millón de dólares de parte del programa de Subvenciones para Operadores de Locales Cerrados (SVOG, por sus siglas en inglés).

«Este dinero ha llegado en un momento realmente crítico. Aparte de ayudarnos a sobrevivir a la pandemia, también nos permitirá mejorar el negocio, darles trabajo a más empleados ─principalmente, músicos, artistas─ y salvar a varias familias, ya que mucha gente depende de nosotros», dijo, entusiasmado, el presidente de la firma, Roberto Ramos.

Su esposa y vicepresidenta de la compañía, Yeney Fariñas-Ramos, por su parte, compartió el criterio de que la financiación «no pudo llegar en un mejor momento, justo cuando pensábamos que íbamos a perderlo todo. En realidad, no creímos que fuera a suceder, pero, evidentemente, hay un Dios mirando por nosotros y un team de expertos que son los mejores».

La ejecutiva se refiere a Rafael Marrero & Company, prestigiosa firma de gestión y consultoría empresarial, también afincada en la ciudad de Miami, que estuvo a cargo de tramitarles la financiación del SVOG de principio a fin.

«Estamos muy agradecidos con Marrero, y reconocemos la actitud tan linda y tan positiva de su equipo de especialistas. Es más: aunque no nos hubieran aprobado la ayuda, igual les hubiéramos agradecido por el excelente trabajo que han hecho con nosotros», recalcó Yeney.

En esa misma posición de gratitud se encuentra el fundador de Cubaocho, para quien Marrero es el salvador de la comunidad. «Realmente, Marrero salva a los negocios que más lo necesitan, a los empleados… En nuestro caso, ha ayudado a salvar a más de 20 familias, principalmente, familias de músicos, que son los que alivian el corazón», puntualizó.

Concedido por la Administración de Pequeñas Empresas (SBA, por sus siglas en inglés) a raíz del impacto del coronavirus, el SVOG brinda ayuda económica a los pequeños negocios del sector del entretenimiento en vivo que han resultado más perjudicados por la pandemia. Cubaocho, pilar del arte cubano del siglo XIX e inicios y mediados del siglo XX, fue uno de ellos.

Hasta la fecha, el programa ha otorgado $7,5 mil millones de dólares en subvenciones a más de 10,000 pequeñas empresas vinculadas con el mundo del espectáculo en directo. Según anunciara la SBA esta semana, más de dos tercios de los subsidios se han otorgado a negocios con menos de 10 empleados, cumpliendo así con el objetivo de darles prioridad a las firmas más pequeñas.

Acerca de Cubaocho Art Museum, Inc

Considerado por muchos como un sitio de obligada visita en la Pequeña Habana, este espacio de galería y reunión alberga una gran colección de arte cubano, una biblioteca de investigación y un bar-cafetería distinguido por su variada selección de rones. Asimismo, cuenta con una importante colección de revistas cubanas previas a 1959, entre ellas, “Carteles”, “Vanidades”, “Bohemia” y “El Fígaro”.

Quienes aman la cultura, en general, y el arte cubano, en particular, llegan allí para apreciar las obras expuestas, asistir a espectáculos en vivo y cubanísimas descargas, así como también para degustar los famosos puros y mojitos del lugar.

Acerca de Rafael Marrero & Company

Rafael Marrero & Company es una consultoría de gestión que asesora a emprendedores sobre cómo hacer negocios con el Gobierno de los Estados Unidos. Con el Dr. Rafael Marrero a la cabeza, la firma ha sido reconocida en dos ocasiones por la revista Inc. como una de las 500 empresas privadas de mayor crecimiento del país y como una de las 50 mejores compañías en términos de cultura empresarial.

En 2016, el Dr. Marrero recibió el máximo galardón otorgado a negocios minoritarios del país por parte del Concilio Nacional del Desarrollo para Empresas Minoritarias. En 2019, ganó el Premio Sunshine en la categoría de Small Business del año, que otorga la Cámara de Comercio Hispana del Sur de la Florida, y en ese mismo año, publicó el bestseller de Amazon La salsa secreta del Tío Sam, primer libro sobre contratación federal especialmente dedicado a la comunidad hispana.

Seven Years of Silence EP cover artwork

Austin, TX-based Singer Songwriter 1st Base Runner's debut EP "Seven Years of Silence" is out July 30th, accompanied by a Matt Mahurin-directed music video.

It is an exploration of expectations and shortcomings and how they in turn will make us all the more uniquely human. No one gets out with clean hands, not on this ride, and not in this lifetime.”

— Tim Husmann

AUSTIN, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, July 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Austin, TX-based Singer Songwriter 1st Base Runner's debut EP "Seven Years of Silence" is out July 30th on all platforms. It is accompanied by an official music video directed by the legendary Matt Mahurin (who has helmed videos for Tom Waits, Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, etc) for "Only One". This new video follows the "Break Even" music video released earlier this month, also directed by Matt Mahurin.

About "Seven Years of Silence":
“It was something that had to be made. I had tried to suppress the concepts and ideas explored in the 8 tracks for several years. It is my willingness to be vulnerable and laid bare before others in an attempt to glimpse some fundamental truths about what it means to be here and to be present. It is an exploration of expectations and shortcomings and how they in turn will make us all the more uniquely human. No one gets out with clean hands, not on this ride, and not in this lifetime.” —Tim Husmann/1st Base Runner

Tim Husmann's meticulous approach to the music and production shows throughout this multi-layered release. The songs are thick with atmosphere, elevated by deceptively simple mantra-type vocals and lyrics that stare into the void without fear. Stylistically, this release should appeal to fans of artists like Radiohead, Godspeed! You Black Emperor, My Bloody Valentine, M83, Nick Cave, Beak or Exploded View.

Limited edition vinyl is available at 1st Base Runner's official website.

Velvet Chains lanza "Tattooed" y encabeza a la nueva generación del rock estadounidense

Tattooed

promotional photo by Katarina Benzova

El grupo Hard Rock lanza su primer álbum en la segunda mitad del año

SAN PABLO, SAN PABLO, BRASIL, July 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Desde Las Vegas para el mundo. Velvet Chains se formó en la conocida ciudad americana el 2018 por músicos experimentados del circuito estadounidense.

La propuesta musical apuesta por sonidos de rock contagioso, una sección rítmica solida, y melodías de guitarra y voz pegajosas, de aquellas que se te quedan grabadas en la cabeza. La música del cuarteto es una mezcla de estilos musicales y personalidades a través del intercambio cultural: tanto Jerry Quinlan (voz y guitarra) como Noelle Schertzer (batería) son de estadounidenses, Laurent Cassiano (guitarra) es brasileño y el bajista Nils Goldschmidt, líder del proyecto, es chileno.

Guiados por lo que mejor se hacía en el grunge y hard rock de los 90s y 00s, la música de Velvet Chains tiene como referencia a grupos de la talla de Guns N' Roses, Alice in Chains y Pearl Jam, entre muchos otros de diferentes estilos, cuyos elementos se condensan para crear un sonido único y característico.

La mezcla de estilos y nacionalidades siempre han tenido un excelente récord en la história de la música global; como en The Strokes, Ill Niño, o incluso Slayer, quienes incluyendo dos latinos en su formacion inicial, lograron dejar una marca en la historia del metal.

Toda la riqueza artística de esta mezcla de orígenes e influencias será condensada y presentada al público el 24 de septiembre, cuando el grupo lanze al mercado su album debut, Icarus.

Para celebrar este importante suceso en su carrera, Velvet Chains contará con colaboraciones de artistas invitados en algunas de sus canciones. Por ejemplo, el guitarrista Richard Fortus (Guns N’ Roses) grabó las guitarras en el sencillo "Tattooed".

Escúchalo en todas las plataformas digitales https://tinyurl.com/VC-Tattooed

El contenido lírico junto con la calidad musical es otro factor importante para Velvet Chains: "Nuestro objetivo era escribir canciones con letras importantes mientras cubríamos diferentes géneros dentro del Rock desde los 90s hastas los 00s.

Encontrarás un poco de rock pesado, un poco de grunge, un poco de rock alternativo, y mucho más en este disco”, explica Nils, fundador de la banda.

Icarus
El álbum debut de Velvet Chains, Icarus, fue coescrito con el compositor multiplatino Drew Lawrence. Las grabaciones tuvieron lugar a principios del 2021 en diferentes estudios: la batería se grabó en The Hideout y el bajo en The Tone Factory, ambos en Las Vegas, mientras que las guitarras y las voces se grabaron en The Killroom en Seattle.

El trabajo de ingeniería en sonido estuvo a cargo de Greg Williamson, mientras que Tristan Hardin realizó la mezcla y masterización.

El primer sencillo "Tattooed" se lanzará el 30 de Julio. “Habla de lidiar con los extremos en las relaciones y enmascarar el dolor que se origina a partir de esto”, explican.
La canción estará acompañada de un impresionante video musical, producido y dirigido por el reconocido director de videos musicales Dean Karr (Marylin Manson, Iron Maiden, Velvet Revolver etc.), quien concibió toda la narrativa del video, el cual reúne escenas muy intensas, las cuales se mezclan con el impactante sonido de Velvet Chains.

Lovetuner, the Revolutionary Meditation & Breathing Device Calibrated to 528 Hz: Healing the World, One Heart at a Time

The Lovetuner is a revolutionary meditation device calibrated to 528hz

The Lovetuner is a revolutionary meditation device calibrated to 528hz

Lovetuner 528hz Meditation & Breathing Device

Lovetuner 528hz Meditation & Breathing Device

Sigmar Berg, Lovetuner Founder & CEO

Sigmar Berg, Lovetuner Founder & CEO

The Lovetuner is a revolutionary approach to reduce stress, relieve anxiety, and arrive in the present moment, connecting your exhale with the 528hz frequency

When I was introduced to the 528hz Frequency and started the Lovetuner one thing came right away to my mind: The Lovetuner is the tool that will heal the world”

— Sigmar Berg, Lovetuner CEO & Founder

MALIBU, CA, UNITED STATES, July 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Most of us run around each day, worrying. Worrying about whether we have enough time, enough money, enough success, enough “stuff”. We are constantly thinking about what we think we need, what we want, what we ought to be doing but don’t have time for. Once we reach one goal, we suddenly manufacture another to take its place. It’s always more, more, more. We’re addicted to more. More of everything. And so there’s never enough.
What’s the harm, you may ask? It’s stress. Lots of it.

Stress is dangerous to your health. Constant emotional stress weakens our immune system, gives us high blood pressure and causes fatigue, depression, and anxiety.

What if you could melt that stress away in just minutes? What if you didn’t need any training or special skills to do it? No pills or fancy machines or gurus or doctors.

The Lovetuner is the revolutionary meditation device that can change your life. Within 6 simple breathing cycles, you are capable of releasing stress and anxiety. The Lovetuner melts away stress, shifting your focus from the chaos in your head to the love in your heart. There’s a reason that over 100 million love songs have been recorded over the last 150 years: love is a basic human need, and one that has all too often been overcome by the stress of everyday life.
The Lovetuner is calibrated to 528hz, a natural frequency that vibrates at the same frequency of our heart and our DNA. But that’s just half the story – it’s the love frequency, combined with intentional, mindful breathing that is the underlying genius of the Lovetuner.
How does it work? Everything in the universe has a vibration. Nothing is static. Each of our organs – when they are healthy and maintain the ability to self-heal – vibrates at a specific frequency. The Lovetuner is calibrated to the frequency of your heart, and when you take a moment to slow your breath and exhale through the Lovetuner, it creates a tone that your heart organ immediately “recognizes.”

With that recognition, your focus instantly moves from your brain to your heart as it decreases cortisol, your body’s main stress hormone, and, in turn, releases oxytocin into your system, regulating your emotional responses and pro-social behaviors. It’s not wishful thinking, but scientific fact: when the Lovetuner instantly “corrects” and strengthens our heart’s natural vibration, we move into a reflective state of clarity and purpose. Outside stress doesn’t go away, but we become much better equipped to handle it. And because your DNA also vibrates at 528 Hz here’s a bonus: the Lovetuner supports the healing and repair of your DNA that may have become damaged due to exposure to harmful toxins, sustained stress, or alcohol and drug use.

Sigmar Berg, Lovetuner CEO and Founder, immediately understood this when he was first introduced to the 528 Hz frequency. After researching and gathering knowledge from around the world, Berg launched Lovetuner, Inc. in 2014. Already a successful designer and entrepreneur, Berg designed the Lovetuner to be both functional and beautiful. The Lovetuner can be worn around your neck, close to your heart, or on a keychain, much like jewelry.
Says Berg, “I never saw the Lovetuner just as a product. The frequency touched my heart, and a way bigger and universal mission formed and manifested. Without even knowing where the journey goes, I coined the slogan, ‘One Journey’. And this is exactly what it means to me. It’s a journey inward, healing yourself and the collective. I saw right away that the Lovetuner is the key for everybody – no matter if spiritually elevated or just curious – to connect instantly into the divine web of love.” To hear more from Sigmar Berg, Lovetuner CEO & Founder, check out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iL-s-dWMYRU

The Lovetuner mission is to spread the love, encourage people around the world to become self-empowered, and to support our planet by raising the frequency to create a better world. Since its introduction, the Lovetuner has become a worldwide phenomenon, known for its ability to open the door to emotional and physical health and well-being through mindful breath and the 528 Hz love frequency.

Perhaps the most well-known proponent of Lovetuner is author and alternative-medicine advocate, Dr. Deepak Chopra. Chopra remarks, “Why am I interested in the Lovetuner? A lot of people say, ‘I don’t have time to meditate.’ [Other] people say, ‘I don’t even have time to take a breathing break.’ Or ‘I don’t know how to be in the present moment.’ [The Lovetuner] is a device that can change all that.” To hear more of what he has to say and tune with Deepak Chopra, visit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AuYN4S1DywE&t=1s

Thanks to the commercial success of Lovetuner, Founder Sigmar Berg established the Lovetuner Foundation, a nonprofit organization that promotes wellness and healing. Through the Lovetuner Foundation, Berg has taken his mindfulness tool into schools, businesses, and veteran groups. In the schools, Lovetuner has a profound effect on student behavior, virtually abolishing bullying and increasing student attentiveness to learning. Businesses who institute a Lovetuner “tuning break” during the workday have noticed an increase in employee productivity and satisfaction, improving their “bottom line”. And veterans have experienced relief from the challenges of PTSD with the Lovetuner, improving mental health and reducing incidence of suicide.

“I encourage you to join us on the Lovetuner journey to make this world a more peaceful, sustainable, loving, happier and healthier place. I’m honored to give you the possibility to elevate others to their full potential and vibrating in a higher frequency. Let’s connect all of us with the power of the Love frequency and the longing of our hearts to overcome separation and polarity.”̶̶ Sigmar Berg, Lovetuner CEO & Founder

The Lovetuner can truly change the world, and we are just beginning to understand the true potential of its impact on our health and well-being. To find out more about the Lovetuner, make a purchase, or meditate to the 528 Hz frequency, visit Lovetuner.com

Christian de Mesones Releases ‘Hispanica (instrumental)’ Featuring Bob James

Contemporary Jazz with Latin Flair

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES, July 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — “Hispanica (instrumental)”, the new single from bassist, composer and band leader Christian de Mesones, is now available for streaming and purchase on all major music platforms and on the artist’s website. de Mesones’ latest creation is a vibrant, soulful, Latin-flavored contemporary jazz gem that prominently features legendary jazz pianist Bob James, who appears courtesy of Tappan Zee Records. It is the instrumental re-imagining of a track from de Mesones’ debut solo project, “They Call Me Big New York”, which contained multiple charting singles and surpassed one million streams on Spotify.

With beautifully crafted supporting color from flautist Arch Thompson, “Hispanica (instrumental)” now also boasts melodic, unison and harmony trumpet punches and interludes from Bill McGee, and showcases Curtis McCain on percussion and Mike Gamble on Guitar. Carl Anderson lays a solid foundation on drums while Rob Maletick lends his sultry saxophone to this well-rounded composition. “Hispanica (instrumental)” was written and co-produced by de Mesones who also plays bass on the track, produced and mixed by Christopher Scott Valentine, and mastered by David P. Marchione.

de Mesones’ experiences while growing up in Brooklyn during the turbulent 60s still heavily influence his musical compositions today. “I grew up during a difficult transitional period in our nation’s history. I had to navigate the effects of this on my own neighborhood and reconcile what I was going through with my desire to become an artist,” de Mesones said. “Luckily, my dream was continually nurtured in a household always filled with music, and I have fond memories of listening to quite a diverse mixture of artists. From Yma Sumac to Alice Cooper and Stravinsky to Streisand, I just couldn’t get enough. That constant exposure to such a vast array of genres had a profound impact on my development as a composer and arranger. This song is a tribute to that history and those influences, which have culminated in this uplifting story – told through song – that represents my cherished Bulgarian-Peruvian heritage.”

The artwork for the single was created by High School of Art and Design alum and lifelong friend of de Mesones, Lisette Nieves-Flores. “As soon as I saw the image, I felt it directly reflected what the song represents for me,” said de Mesones. “It reminded me of The Madonna. That image, and the vivid colors she chose, immediately evoked the symbolism associated with purity, love, royalty, and immortality. This is how I think of my ancestors.”

“They Call Me Big New York” garnered much attention with spotlights in Jazziz Magazine, Bass Magazine and Bass Musician Magazine. “Big Tall Wish”, the opening track on the album, reached #6 on Radiowave and reached top 20 on the Mediabase SJ/AC chart. Fan favorite “Spirit” reached #11 on Mediabase. He was also nominated for Instrumentalist of the Year 2020 by Soultracks.com.

###

Christian “Big New York” de Mesones has been playing bass guitar for over 40 years. He graduated from the Bass Institute of Technology (now the Musician’s Institute) in Hollywood, California and has been part of several musical groups all over the country, including bands out of Hawaii, Hollywood, New York City, and Richmond, Virginia. He has opened for several national recording artists such as Down to the Bone, Marion Meadows, Bob Baldwin, Chuck Brown, and Roberta Flack. de Mesones has created bands and led all-star groups that have performed at the Capital Jazz and Lake Arbor Jazz Festivals in Maryland, the 2nd Street Festival in Richmond, VA, and the legendary Blues Alley Supper Club in Washington, DC.

The Noah Benardout Foundation Releases the Achingly Beautiful LONERS EP by LOVR® on the Second Anniversary of Noah’s Tragic Passing

There was something insanely special about working on this EP with Noah. His talent, collaboration and the hauntingly poignant lyrics of love and loss in each of the songs we made are exceptional.”

— Johnny What

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA, July 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Honoring the life, legacy, and music of Noah Benardout, The Noah Benardout Foundation announces the release of Noah’s definitive “LONERS EP” on the second anniversary of his passing. The five-song EP includes the title track “Loners” which was released on the first anniversary last year with the support of Coldplay who helped produce the Loners music video made by Impossible Brief.

Known as the artist LOVR, Noah Benardout co-wrote and produced the EP with producer Johnny What (Walk The Moon, Fitz and The Tantrums, The Glitch Mob, Elohim) in the spring of 2019, which was then mastered by seven time Grammy-winner John Greenham (Billie Eilish).

“There was something insanely special about working on this EP with Noah at the time. Just how important an experience is sadly too relevant today. Noah’s talent and collaboration was immense, and the hauntingly poignant lyrics of love and loss in each of the songs we made, are exceptional,” says producer Johnny What.

“I had the good fortune to meet Noah in person when he came to my studio” recalls John Greenham. “Apart from being a lovely person, one of the things that impressed me most about him was his dedication in pursuing his vision for the music. He knew exactly what he wanted down to the smallest detail. The five songs on the EP are very engaging and thoughtfully constructed. Noah was a special talent and it's a great loss that we won't be hearing any more music from him.”

“Noah and I had long discussions about his music, family and life”, added Lori Graf of LL Management. “He was an exceptional young man with a bright future ahead of him. I feel his music has the power to heal and unite people. I was hoping to manage his music career. Unfortunately, his life was cut short one day after our last meeting. His passing is a significant loss to me and to anyone who knew him. Rest In Peace, Noah.”

“With every day that passes, the gravitas of what was taken from our son is that much harder to accept. As agonizing as it is to hear Noah’s voice, we knew we had to release all his hard work,” expressed Marc Benardout. “Noah was so proud of the music he had created with Johnny and was excited to share it,” said his mother, Marie.

From the dreamy synths in “Never Know” to the catchy hook of “Cities”, the “Loners” EP is a quintessential emotional journey from an artist that loved deeply and that the world lost emphatically.

ABOUT THE NOAH BENARDOUT FOUNDATION
The Noah Benardout Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization that was established as a result of the tragic and sudden death of Noah on the night of August 1st, 2019 at the hands of a reckless drunk driver. The Foundation’s primary goal is to advocate immediate education and habit-forming skills for teen drivers to end the tragedies of Driving Under the Influence (DUI) which are 100% preventable. Over 300,000 people lose their lives each year in the US as a result of the careless and irresponsible actions of a driver under the influence; that’s one life lost every 49 minutes. The Foundation has partnered with The California Highway Patrol, Los Angeles Police Department, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, the California Office of Traffic and Safety and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
