Linux Game Publishing Competition

September 4th, 2005 by TimeDoctor

Linux Game Publishing’s Michael Simms informed us of the new LGP contest going on right now to guess the title of their latest game. Winners will receive the first copy of it when it is done. This competition is rather interesting in that you have to deduce the game from an image of static pixels, wherein one pixel is cleaned up a second to reveal an image relating to the game.

    Funny how they say they reveal one pixel per second, yet the image is a lossy jpeg in which pixel-level detail is essentially lost.

    Fun to see that something new is to be released. has been a quite tragic lately. Nothing new and exiting.

    Looks to me like a bunch of Angry Pixels… So this is where they went, into this JPG!

    Eh… I’m glad they’re porting another game, but it’s hard to get excited about a contest promising a free copy of the game when they are done with it… They already have enough games in their queue, and the turnaround time isn’t very fast. I just don’t get excited about games > 1 yr before their release anymore, whatever the game is.

    I want Discpiles. :(
