Obscurity: Radirgy

If you're a massive shmup fan, you own a Dreamcast. The number of quality shooters released on that white-box-of-awesome far exceeds that of any other console (with the 360 coming in a close second). Years after the console's demise, dedi...

Destructoid: The Atari 2600 Game

I've recently been taking a bit of time outta my not-too-busy schedule to learn how to create games for the Atari 2600. Since I love Destructoid so much, I've decided this site of awesome deserves it's own (semi) official game. Since I'm ne...

My New Friend

I've been bad. I haven't posted in a long time. To be frank, I took an undeserved break. But I'm back. An acquaintance of mine offered to lend me a box set of a particular TV show. I had never seen this series, but had heard of it. It star...

 
 
 

My first program!

I've finally done it. I actually stuck with a programming language long enough to vaguely learn it. And I produced my first program from scratch. I'm proud, to be honest. And it's coded in Python. It's creatively named. It's called the 'Ar...

Special thanks to CAFFEINE KNIGHT for recommending this game to me. I'll get this clear at the beginning. I won't say anything about the story. I reckon it's better if you find it out for yourself. With that out the way, it's time to actu...
