I made a game with a few batch files and a lot of folders. There’s even a tutorial. And I have DLC planned. It took me a few hours, in which I simultaneously watched the last few episode of The Thick of It. Tiny bit more after the jump and download link.
I bought Boomer’s adventure is Asmik world when I was tiny and the cover beckoned me. Actually it wasn’t Boomer himself, but how he was drawn, that sloppy look was really appealing. I was hoping it would be represented in the 4 shades of grey the DMG promised. Pixel art can be bad, but sloppy? Oh, well. I ended up writing about his Famicom game on GameSetWatch a decade later.

Great new yorker article on The Artist, typical non-praise but interesting take on the 9 year campaign of real silent films. Great, terse descriptions of how cinematography and acting were different and how the artist evokes a 40s film. I really need to watch Thief of Baghdad and rewatch some Guy Madden films.
Douglas Coupland, inventor of the term generation x, has a good review of “Gods without Men” at the new york times. I like it more for its essay-ness though. Time isn’t moving! I think he invented a new genre of fiction called “translit” – like Cloud Atlas – that I’m interested in.
