Weekly Links #188
It's here! It's actually here! A cassette tape with my two ZX Spectrum roguelikes! Won't be able to use it, of course, for lack of suitable hardware, but oh well.
In other news, we have a review of Grimoire that should be instructional of any game developer with grand ambitions, a story about Home of the Underdogs, the famed abandonware site, and another about the making of Carmen Sandiego (that only covers the very first game in the series).
Moving on, readers with an interest in game art might like this write-up on the geometry of light and shadow. Arguably less on-topic is that the FreeDOS project has released their 23rd anniversary e-book (more of a zine, really) under a generous free culture license -- a reminder of simpler days and cartoon-like games with bright colors.
But this is all for the week, as my interests have shifted again from game development to web design. See you next time, hopefully with new plans.
