Last week-end was Global Game Jam 2015 and our game turned out quite well: http://youtu.be/uZab6u7FZG0

The game was made in 48h by SimonPtr, Phaiax (http://invisibletower.de), bitowl, and me using LÖVE (http://love2d.org). It features coop play of up to 4 players. It also supports gamepads such as the Microsoft Xbox360 controller.

Just watched the new DeusEx live trailer "Purity First" (Deus Ex: Human Revolution - SDCC 2011: Purity First Live Action (German Subtitles) | OFFICIAL | HD). Wow! Very intense atmosphere! And very interesting marketing. See also http://www.sarifindustries.com.

I hope that game also gets similar intensity.

Ever thought of floating point determinism? Especially in distributed physics simulations (as in games) this resource might be handy:

Introduction Lately I’ve been doing some research into networking game physics simulations via deterministic lockstep methods. The basic idea is that instead of synchronizing the state of physics obje...

Last week I attended the 26th Ludum Dare Game Jam. I ended up creating the game Track Surfer which you can find here:

I am very happy with the overall game and you should try it! Or better: go surf it!

Funny timing of my last post. The Nexus 4 became available again today and it seems as if I was able to order the 16 GB version. Excited!

But I also have mixed feelings. I am fairly sure that also this phone isn't ethical (http://www.salon.com/2012/02/23/there_is_no_ethical_smartphone/).  

Coincidentally I today I learned about the fairphone (http://www.fairphone.com/) which seems like a dearly needed device to me. I guess I would have paid twice the money for that. Let's hope this devices is around when my Nexus 4 dies*.

* Isn't it weird that one does not expect to use such a device for > 5 years?!

Last weekend was Global Game Jam 2012. It was for all three of us our first time, but after the 48 hours we ended up with something quite likeable. You absolutely should play it!

The game can be downloaded from:

Highscores of my game fysxasteroids are now displayed online at http://www.fysx.org/asteroids/. Oh, and there are also the downloads for Windows and Linux.
