Starting project "omelette"

Kostas here, in the past three days I postponed working on the "dragboxes" project to work on a new idea I had, for which I am actually excited.

This will be a simple mini-game where you are an egg and fight against enemy eggs using guns. I am going for the fun factor in this game: using interesting weapons, and having a good-looking mechanism for the egg-breaking.

The first phase of the project is ready and demonstrates the breaking of the eggs.

Digital Forensics: Imaging

Some of you may have played the classic games Stick Soldiers 1 and 2 by WhiteSpaceUnlimited. Stick Soldiers belongs to the list of small, humble games that manage to captivate our interest and have made many of us spend a lot of our free time and have a lot of fun. (you can download them here: SS1, SS2)

Stick Soldiers has remained discontinued for the past years after the hiatus of the development team and the cancellation of the long-awaited sequel Stick Soldiers 3 by Andrew Russell Studios.

For a long time, I have aspired to revive the Stick Soldiers series by making a fan sequel to the game. Since school's start, I spent about a whole year working on a Game Maker / Ultimate3D project, aiming to evolve it to a complete and worthy sequel, which I called "Stick Soldiers: Encore".
