Nosebleed Interactive were successfully shortlisted for, and have won the Playstation Mobile Prototype Fund for our to-be-announced cross-platform game “The Horde.” Keep an ear open for more information – including screenshots videos and demos – in the coming months!
RoboWrangler – A game that I’m working on as part of a team on my Masters course;
Apparently, the Rasberry Pi will have twice the graphics performance of the iPhone 4s. Sounds good to me; here it is running Quake 3. Although I’m not entirely sure that we’re comparing Apples to…Apples here – since the Pi runs from mains power, and the iPhone has to worry about battery life, the Pi has a little bit of an advantage in this area. Still, it makes a change from the 500w performance graphics cards in modern desktops.
Can’t wait to start programming some games for it. Could make an affordable little indie console, this…
I’m not sure how to get my hands on those “scrap” solar cells…and the finished product could use a little polish, but it’s nice to see this sort of thing making it into mainstream news; http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-16252407
I’m actually really excited about the upcoming Rasberry Pi $25 computer! (That’s about £15 in the Queens English) A tiny, single board computer with a 700MHz ARM processor, capable of running Linux and apparently powerful enough for 1080p video playback. I’m a bit dubious about that last point, but I still think I’ll pick one up to play with. Two versions available; Model A with 128MB RAM and no network jack and the more expensive (or slightly less-cheap at only $35 / £22) Model B with 256MB RAM and an RJ45 jack. I never got round to buying myself an Arduino, but hey, if this does manage HD video playback, I’m sure I could hack together a microscopic HTPC!
