How id built Wolfenstein 3D using Commander Keen tech

quote [ After the graphic assets were generated, a tool (IGRAB) packed all ILBMs together in an archive and generated a C header file with asset IDs. The engine references an asset directly by using these IDs. ]

Somehow the article doesn't explain the Commander Keen reference (which was, to my knowledge, using the same level editor, only top-down)

Move over loot boxes, surprise mechanics are the ethical and fun new way to monetize gambling addicts

quote [ Representatives from EA and Epic Games spoke in front of a UK parliamentary panel. They were there to defend the game industry against charges of addictive game mechanics and encouragement of gambling via loot boxes. One of those representatives took issue with the basic premise that randomized item purchases should be labeled as "loot boxes" in the first place.

"That is what we look at as 'surprise mechanics,'" EA Legal and Government Affairs VP Kerry Hopkins told the panel. These surprise mechanics are "quite ethical and fun [and] enjoyable to people... We think it is like many other products that people enjoy in a very healthy way. They like the element of surprise." ]
