Artist Taro Oono turns gifs into delightful Twitter microgames

quote [ Artist and illustrator Taro Oono is the most prolific gamemaker you've never heard of, releasing dozens of free little vignettes entirely through Twitter gifs ]

Good one-button-games. Too bad they can only be viewed through Twitter.

Bob PicRoss: The Joy of Painting 2 by goofanader, klades

quote [ There are numbers on the top and left side of the 5x5 grid. Each number represents how many of a color there is in that row or column. If the number has a circle behind it, that color is lined up together in the row or column. Otherwise, the color is broken up by other color(s)! ]

This is challenging and soothing at the same time. Pretty clever Picross design.

Have you played… Liberal Crime Squad?

quote [ A satirical revolution 'em up from the creators of Dwarf Fortress ]

WARNING: The scope of this game is narrower than that of real life. We have attempted to include foul language, graphic violence, politics, religion, sexual references, adult situations, narcotics, prostitution, bodily functions and bad pickup lines, but Bay 12 Games recognizes that there might be omissions which will make some players uncomfortable.

?Playing Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain?

quote [ ?You?ve been shooting at Afghans in your games for so long that you?ve become oddly immune to the self-loathing you felt when you were ?rst massacring wave after wave of militant ?ghters who looked just like your father.? ]

Oh, this is very good. There are oddly several good articles linking video games and relations to fathers, this is indeed one of the best. Full in extended.

The polygons of Another World

quote [ In some cases, clever tricks allowed Another World to run on hardware built up to five years prior to the game release.

This series is a journey through the video-games hardware of the early 90s. From the Amiga 500, Atari ST, IBM PC, Super Nintendo, up to the Sega Genesis. For each machine, I attempted to discover how Another World was implemented. ]

Ongoing analysis on the clever screen drawing tricks of a 21 year old. Thumb is two different pixel grids for Atari performance.

The man who made Wolfenstein

quote [ It was the company?s biggest project. ?We put everything in there,? Warner said, referring to the Muse?s store of programming knowledge and its suite of software tools. ?We were working with a professional recording studio. We went down there one fine day and I spent several hours on the microphone saying, ?Achtung!?? ]

Interesting people and sensible anecdotes. The original stealth game is indeed hailed as being clever and deep for it's time.

Talking Netcode With Adam "Keits" Heart

quote [ While filming our upcoming documentary on Killer Instinct, we had a chance to sit down with Adam "Keits" Heart of Iron Galaxy and got into the hot topic of netcode in fighting games. ]

Since people seem to be interested in video game tech at the moment. Google Stadia is promising to use negative latency tech to improve netcode. One aspect of the puzzle has been solved but isn't used even for many games it works for.
