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 / — 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!

>> <<

"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

NEW YORK, USA, August 1, 2021 / — Plucker started off as a food and grocery delivery service but now Plucker is the first black owed app to deliver anything customers need to their doorstep. Food, grocery, medicine, laundry, water, and much more. there is a section on the app that says The black market which is for black-owned businesses in the community. The founder and CEO Stevenson Michael Joseph wanted to make a difference across the nation. Plucker stands for People Love Unity Culture Kindness Embrace Relationships.

In 2019, Stevenson aspired to launch Plucker, planned and positioned himself properly to have the foundations for launching Dec 2020. After months of learning the codes, taking classes, and financial planning, Plucker LLC was launched in Dec 2020! Once launched, the heavy volume and orders caused the app to crash. This was one of the few obstacles Plucker faced. Pushing through the payment system crash, app crash, Stevenson learned a better coding system to withstand the increasing volume of plucker customers and team.

Just starting, over 30 restaurants and local businesses joined Plucker LLC, originally named Pluckershop. Although Plucker LLC had many orders, we had a lack of drivers. Because of the volume of stores and customer orders, Plucker is always hiring more drivers. During a slow drop in sales for a couple of months, Stevenson had to keep motivated by planning other ways to keep Plucker going. Figuring out the needs for the community and what we lacked, how Plucker can be here to make a difference. A few months went by and Stevenson expanded Plucker to deliver anything to customers' doorstep. Food, groceries, laundry, medicine, and more. Stevenson did all the planning, researching, funding, and goal setting for Plucker.

In June 2021 Plucker have launched their own social media platform called Pluck a black-owned social media platform that rivals Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok.

In July 2021 Stevenson Michael Joseph launched another app called Plucker Cab. Plucker cab gives cheap affordable rides to the black community, it offers different types of cab variations to choose from such as Plucker Green, Plucker Yellow, and Plucker Black.

What I stand for is something beyond Justice, I stand for those who were told no, I stand for those who were told they can’t make it anywhere because of the color of their skin. I stand for the impossible because I’m possible. I stand for those in the black community who think giving up is an option. I don’t care what people think or say about me or Plucker. I care about the difference Plucker makes in this world. Changing the lives of people across the world. My dreams will be realized and known throughout time and space.

PluckerApp is the new food delivery service on the block. The app can be downloaded via Google Play and App Store for Android and iOS devices respectively. The app allows users to find their favorite restaurant with just a click of a button and get their desired dish delivered in just a few minutes.

This scholarship is awarded annually to a graduating, African-American, male who attends high school in Essex County, NJ.

Lee also expressed a great deal of excitement as he packs and prepares for his freshman year at Hampton University, majoring in Biology.

Through the generous support of the members of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, combined with invaluable community support, the Foundation has been able to provide more than $200,000 in valuable programming and financial resources to local students at the middle school, high school and college levels, to support their efforts and encourage them to pursue higher education.

A third Essex County resident, Prince Appiah received the Marion B. Frederick Book Award to assist with expenses at Davidson College in North Carolina, where he intends to major in Biology and Public Health.

Oregon Gubernatorial Candidate Bud Pierce says State Mask Mandates for Students is an Overreach

Dr. Pierce for Governor Logo

Dr. Pierce believes that local jurisdictions, elected school board members, and parents should make those decisions for their students.

Local officials and parents know their children and communities the best.”

— Dr. Bud Pierce, Oncologist and Candidate for Oregon Governor

SALEM, OR, UNITED STATES, July 31, 2021 / — Republican candidate for Oregon Governor, Dr. Bud Pierce criticized Kate Brown for overreaching with her mask mandate for K-12 students. Dr. Pierce believes that local jurisdictions, elected school board members, and parents should make those decisions for their students.

On July 29, Brown released a statement directing the Oregon Health Authority and the Oregon Department of Education to create a rule that requires masks indoors for students in the upcoming school year.

Dr. Pierce has been a strong advocate for vaccinations and has carefully followed the science. He has repeatedly said that our children “should return to an in-class learning environment.”

In response to the mandate, Dr. Pierce said, “Science has demonstrated that children are resilient if they contract COVID-19. The two-shot vaccines have demonstrated a 99.9% effectiveness rate in preventing COVID-19 infection in immunized adults. I have many concerns about Gov. Brown creating this mandate, at this time, for every student in the state. We need to trust our local elected officials and parents. We should not have our children learning in a fear-based environment.”

Not all communities have the same level of risk. Dr. Pierce believes that regulations should be based on actual vaccination rates, the number of students in a given school district, and the area’s population size.

“Local officials and parents know their children and communities the best. A COVID-19 safety plan driven by local officials increases community buy-in and more accurately reflects a community’s actual safety needs,” Dr. Pierce said.

Dr. Pierce added, “My concern is that the Governor will put the burden on teachers to be ‘mask enforcers’ instead of educators. Governor Brown has failed to provide clear leadership, consistent messaging, and practical advice throughout this entire pandemic.”

Bud Pierce, M.D, Ph.D. is a business owner and senior partner of Oregon Oncology Specialists, one of the last physician-owned practices on the West Coast. He announced his candidacy for governor on the Republican ticket in April 2021. Approved photos and biography can be found at To arrange an interview with Dr. Pierce, email
