Parallel Realities: Retro-themed Linux games

,----[ Quote ]
| The Parallel Realities website offers a 
| collection of simple, mostly SDL based 
| action games. They're all fairly 
| lightweight and might make good boredom 
| beaters on a less powerful machine, or 
| failing that, a handy distraction while 
| waiting for something to complete in the 
| background. If amazing graphics are your 
| thing, be warned that the retro styling of 
| all of these games leans more towards 
| nostalgic appeal than an attempt to wow.
| The games all worked well when operating in 
| a window, something I prefer when playing a 
| game under Linux. They could all be played 
| via the keyboard, but worked best when used 
| with a dedicated USB game controller.


5 Tools to Develop AAA Games

,----[ Quote ]
| To begin with, let us highlight the key 
| functions within the game. Every time you 
| run a game, a piece of software that is 
| called the game engine loads itself into 
| the memory. The game engine is like a 
| kernel for the game. It will manage all 
| resources, levels and your in-game 
| progression. Everything that you see, hear 
| or do, is managed by the engine. The engine 
| itself is a collection of services that 
| provide these capabilities.
| Once the engine is loaded, it uses the 
| rendering subsystem to set your screen and 
| start the game interfaceâlegal screens, 
| intros and menu systems. Using this 
| rendering and the game logic through the 
| game engine, you begin your gaming 
| session.Every thing that you see is taken 
| care of by the rendering engine. So, we 
| will look at a rendering engineâOGRE 3D to 
| be specific.

| Project Pandora has been one of those open
| source handheld gaming console developments

| accusations of being 'vapourware' for the last
| two years.


Pandora open-source handheld is go

,----[ Quote ]
| For quite a while now, Iâve been following
| the progress of the Pandora, an open-source
| handheld for music, movies, and games. Itâs
| hard to stay excited, though, when thereâs
| the constant threat of the thing ceasing to
| exist.
