Happy New Year

Kostas here, thought I should mention that I took part in the Hangover Gamejam 2016.

The point of this jam was to make a game on New Year's day, after the previous day's hangover. I didn't get much of a hangover (although I probably had a long night), but I found the idea quite entertaining nonetheless.

The optional jam theme was "Comet". My creation is Photogenic Comet, which I believe is a good piece of work for the given less-than-24-hour period. In this game you try to guide a comet through space and past the Earth, so that it gets photographed by people.

Download & rate "Photogenic Comet" here


UPDATE: Photogenic Comet came 2nd in the gamejam results, which I consider a pretty good ranking. Thanks for your support, and make sure to check out the other entries too.

On other news, I 've been working slowly but steadily with P. Touzopoulos on the escape-the-room styled game mentioned in the last post. Another thing I am excited about is that I started working on the Stick Soldiers fangame I had ceased working on for a long time. More on that will be mentioned soon, as I would like to get a bit more work done before showcasing anything, so hold on tight.

That will be all for now. Thanks for reading, hope you guys have a great 2016.

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)

Revisiting "Stick Soldiers"

Update 16 Sep 2016: The project mentioned in this post has its own page on Gamejolt and Itch.io now: Visit "Stick Veterans" on Gamejolt or Itch.io for more info.
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". Second year of school …
