Skrillex Quest

Skrillex Quest

You should checkout the small game Skrillex Quest. It’s a creative game, in a Zelda meets 3D meets some interesting twists, made by Jason Oda for the DubStep musician Skrillex. In the game you have to fight glitches, that came into a cartridge by a particle of dust. The game is not a masterpiece, but has some really interesting ideas in it.

c’t-Erstausgabe von 1983 als PDF

Heimcomputer-Enthusiasten aufgepasst! Die Erstausgabe des Magazins für computer technik von 1983 gibt es als PDF-Retrovergnügen zum herunterladen (58 MB). Zwar schon länger erhältlich, aber mir jetzt erst bekannt, von daher Grund genug, um bei 1000ff darauf hinzuweisen.   Fast noch schöner als die Artikel (“Mikro macht mehr aus Btx”, “Scharfes Bild durch Videoeingang”) sind dieWeiterlesen…

Portraying The Terran Condition (Fuck this Jam entry by Monochrom)

monochrom-shooter

Fuck this Jam is the name of a game-jam, where the topic is about making games about a genre you hate. This is meant as a good design practice, to learn and build upon. The submissions for this game-jam were partly great.

I want to highlight the work from the Monochrom-art-collective from Vienna. They made a version of an ego-shooter, called Portraying The Terran Condition: An Approach To Simulate A Civilization. The game is about a “simulation of the humans on earth” for an alien race in a distant future. The game tries to emulate “human life” – but the scientists made many wrong assumption about how human life really was. It begins at the abstract looking landscapes. The game-designers about the game:

“This 7D (backwards compatible to 2D) world simulation depicts six different key events in the history of Terra (‘Earth’), a low-tech civilization that self-destructed several aeons ago. Based on the relatively few biological and cultural artifacts, a team of multi-AI minds was able to recreate a stunningly accurate depiction of this ancient civilization.”

This game is surprisingly well made, full off tension and crude humor. Indeed also the sound design is really great. There is so much words now, but nothing can replace playing the game itself.

Back to the Fuck this Jam: Feel free to browse the complete submissions of Fuck this Jam entries. Also read about other good entries of the Fuck this Jam at Rock Paper Shotgun (Recommended!).

LuaCrumbs-Forum and new Domain

Finally I decided to give the LuaCrumbs-project a little bit drive again. The project was 80 percent finished for an initial release and I got more and more comfortable with this situation – mostly because I still see the need for a project like LuaCrumbs for FabLabs and Makerspaces.

luacrumbs-syntax

LuaCrumbs is an simple framework, suited for FabLabs, that lowers the barriers of coding the machines like CNC-drill, laser-cutter, plotters etc in a significant way. In its current state it has a HTML5-3D preview that works in any modern browser. This week I gave the project a new home under the domain LuaCrumbs.org. There is currently only a forum – but people can register. If you want to have a preview of the style, you will work with LuaCrumbs, check this thread with code-syntax of this thread with some example works.
