As Trestkon stated, now we know that for our next project, we should find some old game to give a graphical overhaul. That'll make us much more popular than actually coming up with something completely original ;) It is said that if you are a writer and you want to get published and then bathe in c...

Well you're right about that, but in my own humble and extremely subjective opinion, that would be extremely bad game design. It'd reduce Deus Ex to a choose-your-own-adventure book where you are faced with options along the way that basically result in a delayed game-over. What if you choose to st...

A while (read: "a few hundred years") ago there was a revolution in music when people realized that if you had moments of total silence it would make the rest of the music that much more powerful. Doesn't the occasional non-funny deep thing thrown in serve as a way to make the funny moments seem eve...

It wouldn't have been so much a question as coding it into the game as a question of spending another year implementing a completely different storyline parallel to the current one. I'm not sure that's true Jonas. I'm reminded of a game called Independence War, a space combat simulator. At one poin...

Here's the thing that seems odd about it to me, it's not his head or his belly, it's his pants. (His trousers if you don't like Catholic saints.) JC is a guy who wears combat boots into actual combat, all of the people I've seen doing that, mostly soldiers and riot cops, have pants which I think are...

Chared Bodies

Something that bugs me quite a bit is that if I set someone on fire they drop to the ground and two things happen. The first is that they go out, which is no fun (why should a corpse be fireproof?) the second is that when they go out they are pristine as if their body and clothing never even knew wh...

And I'm only 15, so don't expect insanely complex math stuff. There's a reason any science fiction show that mentions education has 6 year olds learning calculus. Math is perhaps the simplest thing on earth. The only reason people don't learn it quickly is insecurity on the part of teachers. (Most ...
