Steam på Mac: Portal gratis till 24:e Maj

2010-05-14, 09:06 | Portal, Steam, Spel, Datorspel, Valve, Mjukvara,

Portal used to cost money. Until May 24th, it’s free. End of story.

Well, technically speaking, there are some strings attached. Fortunately, they’re entirely decorative. We just like the way they look, swaying in the gentle breeze created by a million people simultanously fainting from shock at the news that Portal is free. Now you have no reason not to try Portal.

"I have a reason," some of you are probably typing into an angry email. "You see, sir, I own a Mac."

Well guess what: For the first time ever, Portal is also available for the Mac.

Akihabara, HTML5-spelbibliotek

Riktigt coolt. Verkar smidigt och inte så krävande. Old school style!

It is a set of libraries, tools and presets to create pixelated indie-style 8/16-bit era games in Javascript that runs in your browser without any Flash plugin, making use of a small small small subset of the HTML5 features, that are actually available on many modern browsers.

I wrote this for fast game developing/prototyping, since Javascript is not only a funny scripting language but is also available quite anytime during the day, for some coding-on-lunch-break (my unique spare time). The engine is not very refined but results are enjoyable on Google Chrome, Safari, Firefox and Opera. Games run in the same way on all these browsers and on all the supported platforms, that are virtually all ;). Using Javascript gives you a nice side effect too: games are also playable on modern mobile devices like the iPhone/iPod, Android devices and the just arrived iPad.

Galactic Arms Race (GAR). Snygg MMO-rymd-shooter som har genererade vapen som största feature. Riktigt coola grejer.

Unique game content, namely spaceship weapon systems, automatically evolves based on player behavior through a specialized version of the NEAT evolutionary algorithm called cgNEAT (content-generating NeuroEvolution of Augmenting Topologies). In particular, new variants of weapons that players like will be continually created by the game itself. In this way, the game never stays the same. GAR is the first video game to demonstrate that critical content can evolve as the game is played to satisfy its players.

Datorspel jag ser fram emot

2008-06-30, 12:23 | Spel, Datorspel, Spore, Diablo III, Starcraft 2, Fallout 3,

Jag kanske inte kommer kunna spela alla eftersom jag sitter på en mac (som är ca 1 år gammal). Men det rör mig inte så mycket, ser fram emot att få se dehär spelen:

  • StarCraft 2 - Ettan var massiv och Blizzard kan inte göra dåliga spel.
  • Diablo III - Lär väl dröja ett tag, men ändå: Äntligen.
  • Spore - Verkar riktigt stort, välgjort och förhoppningsvis fritt.
  • Fallout III (Collector’s edition ser fin ut). Älskade ettan och tvåan så har höga förväntningar.
