quote [ Why, even in peacetime, do friends become enemies?
And why, even in wartime, do enemies become friends?

I think game theory can help explain our epidemic of distrust ?
and how we can fix it! So, to understand all this...

Also, I need to make more friends.

Developer returns to game after four decades, discovers and fixes typo so it works

quote [ Arctic Adventure is back baby! ]

Was a big fan of Zork and Colossal Cave Adventure back in the day, gonna have to give this a whirl.

Hell is other people's code, including your own. Stuff I wrote a month ago looks like someone else wrote it, I can't imagine going back 40 years and debugging, I'd go insane.

French games used to be weird

quote [ Before the industry went global, before AAA games really even existed, French developers were making offbeat, sexy, political games that reflected their own reality. ]

This is a bit all over the place concerning French media weirdness, but a nice insight in early alternative video game companies and Muriel Tramis in particular.
