Game for TAGjam 20 "Impossible Go-Kart in the Desert"

Kostas again, a little late on the update, but I took place in The Arbitrary Gamejam once again.


This month's jam was TAGjam20 which came with some pretty cool (although a bit generic) themes to choose from: Bending the laws of physics, Different moods, Catastrophy, Discovery. But there was an extra rule to make it all hard: We had to use a name from a random name generator.


And that is the game title I went for.

Other candidate titles were "Angry Karaoke in the Middle East", "Wild Bazooka Restaurant" and "Kamikaze Barbarian Farmer", but alas they didn't fit well with the themes.

So here we are with Impossible Go-Kart in the Desert. You can play/download the game here.


In the game, you drive a go-kart in the middle of an infinite desert. You have to reach certain checkpoints one-by-one, and a new catastrophe unveils each time you do.

The game was made during the weekend, and mostly during the nighttime (nobody sleeps during TAGjams). Ergo it may seem a bit rushed, however I am happy with how it turned out.

The catastrophes included are very similar due to lack of time. Hopefully I will expand the game a bit to include a bigger variety of fascinating catastrophes.

Oh and make sure to check out the 5 other games submitted in the TAGjam20's page, they are pretty awesome.

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)
