People have been sending me links to this game for a while now, and I finally got around to downloading the demo. Half an hour later I’d bought the game. I’ll be buying it again – a second time – for WiiWare tomorrow. I do so without the slightest hesitation. I am, in fact, happy to do so.
I’ll have a more complete review of the game later, but allow me this quick bullet-list of cogent informational tidbits:
- No DRM. Region-free. Just download and play wherever.
- Only $20. An irresistible price-point.
- Fun and endlessly innovative.
- Indie game made by a two-man design team, the likes of which has not been seen since the classic “A Guy and His Buddy” design teams of the 80’s.
- Will run on “any computer less than 5 years old”.
- This is the first thing I’ve encountered in two weeks which has been capable of prying me away from City of Heroes.
Please, I invite you to wreck your productivity by getting the demo.
There are two major schools of thought about how you should write software. Here's what they are and why people argue about it.
The Game That Ruined Me
Be careful what you learn with your muscle-memory, because it will be very hard to un-learn it.
The Best of 2014
My picks for what was important, awesome, or worth talking about in 2014.
Bethesda felt the need to jam a morality system into Fallout 3, and they blew it. Good and evil make no sense and the moral compass points sideways.
PC Gaming Golden Age
It's not a legend. It was real. There was a time before DLC. Before DRM. Before crappy ports. It was glorious.
