Flashy Dansy

Kostas here, during the past weekend I took part in a rapid-gamedev competition, #tagjam15.

This compo is a monthly 48-hour or 72-hour game-development jam which I came across by luck. I thought it was a good chance to force myself to make, complete and publish a game in a competition context, so I went for it.

The resulting game is Flashy Dansy, a Flashdance-parody where you dance to the song "What A Feeling" in the middle of a bridge road.


You can play online or download the game here.

This weird game concept is a result of the gamejam's themes, which included "Bridge" and "80's music" among others.

I am glad to see this game complete and polished in such a short deadline, and hope for more games like this to follow.

I would like to thank the other #tagjam15 participants who shared this experience and provided motivation to me, as well as Haddy for hosting the gamejam.

Update:
Flashy Dansy was the winner of the #tagjam15 competition! I am thrilled by the idea that this little game stood up so well in a gamejam, against 6 competing games (plus 3 non-compo). Hopefully this will be a motivation for more gamejams and more successes in the future.

I also made an Android version. Although it is not available on Play Store yet, you can download Flashy Dansy for Android here and play it on your phone.

Instructions:
  1. Download Flashy Dansy for Android on your phone (or download on PC and transfer via USB)
  2. On your phone, go to Settings > Security or Settings > Applications and enable the checkbox "Unknown Sources"
  3. Find the FlashyDansyAndroid.apk file you downloaded and open it to install. Enjoy!

Digital Forensics: Imaging

Hello! Sorry for being inactive so much time but summer lasted a little bit longer than usual..!

Regarding my digging in digital forensics, i decided to create a series of posts beginning with imaging. So today i will show you the three most prevalent formats of "post-mortem" imaging and how to obtain them (on a *nix system) from a test disk.

The discussed formats are the following:
(1) Raw Format
(2) Expert Witness Compression Format (or ewf)
(3) Advanced Forensic Format (or aff)
