  • Feral have patched the Vulkan Beta of Mad Max again, another look at performance with benchmarks
  • How to program games with the LÖVE gaming engine on the Raspberry Pi

    The Raspberry Pi is famous for introducing kids to open source software and programming. The Pi is an affordable, practical introduction to professional-grade computing, disguised as hackable fun. An application that's done the most to get young children started in programming has been Mitch Resnick's Scratch (which fortunately was forked by the Pi Foundation when Scratch 2 switched to the non-open Adobe Air), but an inevitable question is what someone should graduate to after they've outgrown drag-and-drop programming.

    After a drag-and-drop intro like Scratch, there are many candidates for the next level of programming. There's the excellent PyGame, there's a Java subset called Processing, the powerful Godot engine, and many others. The trick is to find a framework that is easy enough to ease the transition from the instant gratification of drag-and-drop, but complex enough to accurately represent what professional programmers actually do all day.

  • Yooka-Laylee released with day-1 Linux support, some quick initial thoughts

    Yooka-Laylee is the 3D platformer throwback to games like Banjo-Kazooie that was funded thanks to Kickstarter back in 2015. It's actually made by some of the original team from game developer Rare, who created some really great games.

    I can confirm that it does seem to work fine on Linux and I haven't encountered any obvious issues so far. I tested it with the Steam Controller with the SC Controller driver/UI and apart from the mouse pointer staying on the screen it felt really great.

  • Feral Fury, a twin-stick shooter with rogue-lite features is out on Linux and it's pretty good

    Feral Fury [Steam] is a twin-stick shooter with an overall dark feel to it. I've played it for a while and I've grown to really enjoy it, even if it's a little punishing. It's made by Skandivania Games, two Swedes currently living in Norway. For a two-person team, it's got an amazingly polished feel to it.

  • Airship combat game Guns of Icarus Alliance released as a standalone game
  • One Eyed Kutkh, a weird and free adventure game is now on Steam

    If you like your weird games with no speech, check out One Eyed Kutkh [Steam, Official Site] which has been released for free on Steam. It's based on the fairy tales of the Far North, apparently.

  • Gaming: Quern – Undying Thoughts

    I have been an addict of Myst like games since the very beginning. Solving mind boggling riddles by logical means (instead of weapons) was always my preferred gaming. And it seems 2016 had a great share of games fitting to my taste: Obduction, The Eyes of Ara, The Witness, and last but not least Quern – Undying Thoughts. Due to work, research, online courses, diapers, and some real life (these are also the excuses for my long silence on this blog) it took me ages to complete this games, but with a bit of help I finally manged it.

  • 28 years later, devs are still making level editors for Prince of Persia

    In the fall of 1989, Brøderbund published game designer Jordan Mechner's seminal platformer Prince of Persia for the Apple II. Now, in 2017, a fan has released a level editor for that original Apple II version of the game: leapop.

    Fellow devs may appreciate that the editor is licensed for modification or redistribution (under the terms of the GNU General Public License), so you can download the tool and poke around to see how it was done.
