I recently wrote this article on Gamasutra in response to a pair of articles which talked about the practice of copying game mechanics. The discussion has been interesting. So here it is for my own records. I had never heard of Vlambeer or Gamenauts before yesterday. I had never heard of Radical Fishing or Ninja [...]
As you may have gathered from our philosophy here that I am a Linux user. Specifically I run Ubuntu. Usually it is a pretty nice running OS and I rarely have any issues with it. That is not the case recently. Back in April, Ubuntu released version 11.04 and it has been nothing but frustration. [...]

The video game industry, represented by the ESA, has challenged this law in federal court. Twice it has been ruled [...]
After careful consideration of a number of options for cross platform game development, We at Divine Knight Gaming have decided to go with Flash. I mentioned this in my last article about game development for Linux, but I didn’t really delve much further into it. So here I will be explaining exactly what went into [...]
