Wasn't One Must Fall. 2097 a great game? Everyone seems to have thought so, since it took about four minutes before everyone simultaneously picked it up.
But what memories. Still holds up today, OMF. Anyway, here's a new ScribbleTaku.
It's weird to think of Nintendo moving forward without releasing a new, strictly stationary console. For many of us, the first time we ever played any video game was on the NES or SNES, so much so that it seemed perfectly normal to say "I'm playing Nintendo."
When Michel Ancel isn't teasing fans with concept art for a Beyond Good & Evil sequel that was announced eight years ago, he's apparently searching for a long lost build of Rayman for the SNES. His efforts seem to have paid off earlier today when he discovered an EPROM (erasable programmable read-only memory) of the ancient, never released game.
Nibbler is a snake arcade game similar to Pac-Man where the player grows longer the more things they eat. In Nibbler, however, there aren't any ghosts chasing you. Instead, the only thing the serpent has to fear is itself. If it makes contact with another part of its body while zig-zagging through mazes, the game ends. The game's fail state is literally a snake eating its own tail.
Well congrats tomathy. First on your username, which I like. Second, for guessing yesterday's ScribbleTaku, which was Football Manager. No idea the year, let's not go down that rabbit hole.
Time for a new one, drawn by ME.
The Raspberry Pi is the cheapest and smallest way to emulate the old video games you still love to play. You have a few different ways of going about making your own retro game console, but RetroPie and Recalbox are two of the easiest to use. Let's take a look at their differences, and pick the best one for you.
The fifth annual Game Boy Jam just wrapped up last weekend after receiving over four hundreds of entries. The rules were simple. all assets had to be created during the jam, the screen resolution had to match the original Game Boy, and each game could only include up to four colours. You can currently find all of them hosted on Itch.io.
Ben Nicholas is an artist and concept designer formerly with 343 Industries who worked on Halo Wars 2. He's also a huge fan of Final Fantasy VII, which is why he decided to embark on a project to re-imagine the game's various interiors, beginning with pharmacy nestled deep inside the Wall Market strip of the Midgar slums.
If there's anything I've learned in this job, it's this. everyone can spot Winter Games from a mile away. Three minutes before Braains blew Planky's drawing out of the water. Not hugely surprised though; it was a pretty damn good drawing. I'll actually show you the full version after the jump, it's solid work.
But guess what? Planky didn't send in just one scribble -- he sent in two. So you can have a crack at the second today.
