Gish Contest and Sale

April 4th, 2011 by Crusader

Chronic Logic has announced that the classic Linux (and other platforms) game Gish is now the subject of both a pay what you want sale and a contest from Plantronics:

Gish is back this Spring! Every few days we will be releasing one of eight new levels each with its own challenges and secrets. Between speeding trucks, motor boats, out of control gears, lava, falling drills, and some classic baddies Gish has his work cut out for him. Best of all, these levels contain chances to win Plantronics merchandise! So leave your Valentines behind and grab your plumbing equipment because we’re going back into the sewers this Spring.

Level 1 – April 5th 2011

It has been a few years and Gish is back in trouble, unpredictably, this time Brea has been kidnapped! The last thing you saw was Brea being grabbed and pulled into a Plantronic’s headset factory by a mysterious figure. What could be going on? No time to think, break into that factory any way possible and find your lost love.

No Time to Explain!

April 4th, 2011 by Crusader

Wow, it’s been a while since I’ve been this impressed with a 2D sidescroller:

tiny Build Games is developing No Time to Explain, which looks to be a frenetic and humorous take on time travel. I’m down:

No Time To Explain is coming Summer 2011 to PC & Mac. First sales will go right into XBLA/PSN and Linux version development funding.

Minecraft Beta 1.4

April 3rd, 2011 by Crusader

Notch and the crew at Mojang released version 1.4 of Minecraft Beta this week. Ch-ch-changes:

  • Added tameable wolves
  • Added cookies
  • Sleeping in a bed now resets your spawn position
  • New Minecraft logo
  • Holding shift while climbing will hang on to the ladder
  • Spiders will no longer trample crops
  • Lots and lots of infrastructure for Statistics lists and Achievements

It’s also noted that statistics and achievements support will be in the next update.

Additionally, a repository for interesting world seeds has been created: The Minecraft Seed Repo. I might check it out next time I die (I’ve been playing iron man-style, deleting my world and starting over after the first character death).

Volley Brawl

April 3rd, 2011 by Crusader

OMG! Ubuntu has announced the release of Volley Brawl into the Ubuntu Software Center:

It’s just hit the Software Center for Maverick and Natty, right on time to meet the March 31st release date (unless you live in the USA, where it’s still March 30th – but due to timezones and all that, we can’t please everyone!)

All you have to do is open up the Software Center and navigate to the “For Purchase” section. It’s priced at a comfortable $2.99.

I don’t have an Ubuntu system at present, so I ask you, the community: what games are available there right now? Thanks!
