Capturing a wealth of experience about the design of object-oriented software, four top-notch designers present a catalog of simple and succinct solutions to commonly occurring design problems. Previously undocumented, these 23 patterns allow designers to create more flexible, elegant, and ultimately reusable designs without having to rediscover the design solutions themselves. The authors begin by describing what patterns are and how they can help you design object-oriented software. They then...

Lost in the Static is a free exploration-oriented platform/jumping game for Windows XP and Vista on reasonably modern (fast) PCs. It is a simple little game that uses some surprising aspects of the human perceptual system to create a visible world out of animating static. Please note that this display is not suitable for everyone! Some people find they get headaches or nausea, or their eyes get "all woggly". If you do not find the experience pleasant, stop playing!

It was early 1993 and id Software was at the top of the PC gaming industry. Wolfenstein 3D had established the First Person Shooter genre and sales of its sequel Spear of Destiny were skyrocketing. The technology and tools id had taken years to develop were no match for their many competitors. It would have been easy for id to coast on their success, but instead they made the audacious decision to throw away everything they had built and start from scratch.

A full-blown game engine is now an important industrial asset. Current engines exist with licensing fees of several $100,000, plus profit share costs. Because of these high costs, hobbyist game programmers are eager to learn how to write their own engines. The availability of a game engine which is ready to rock simplifies the development process of a game, allowing developers to concentrate on the game and gameplay experience.

This little gem, also known as Star Miner, was released in 2003 by Positech Games, a developer based in the UK, known for Democracy and Gratuitous Space Battles, among other games. The goal of the game is to mine asteroids, destroy hostile ships, upgrade your own ship, and ultimately reach a monetary credit goal to advance to the next level. The game has eight levels, one of which was playable for free in a shareware demo. To unlock the rest of the levels, one needed to purchase a registration...
