Gamer's University – Updated More than Never!

Archive for the ‘Cool Stuff’ category

 I’m going to try something a little different today. That’s right, a tech review! As a gamer, I do enjoy many different gadgets as well (don’t worry there’s a tie-in to gaming for this anyhow) I got a Pebble Smart Watch last Christmas and I have been using it long enough to the point where […]

Magnum Opus…FUNDED!

August 29th, 2013

  I wanted to take a moment today to thank everyone who saw and supported our kickstarter for the game I designed, Magnum Opus. Our Kickstarter campaign ran for a little over a month and ended at almost 300% of our funding goal. The game will go into production shortly and is slated for distribution […]

[Awesome] THE FUTURE.

Disney is one of those organizations that can make thousands of people angry one day and then turn around the next day and amaze the world. This is one of those amazing days, I think.   Via BoingBoing

I’ll be the first to tell you that Excel (well, spreadsheets in general. OpenOffice.org shoutout.) is one heck of a powerful tool. I use it all the time to help organize my thoughts and run calculations and simple simulations in my boardgame design endeavors. But this…this blows my mind. Via Boingboing: Cary Walkin, an accountant […]

I love stuff like this, mostly because sometimes it inspires people just enough to take a crazy pipe-dream of an idea and run with it. (it worked on me once!) http://johanvinet.tumblr.com/post/23535804010/calvin-and-hobbes-what-the-16-bit-video-game   Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas (or Christmas-like holiday of your choosing) and Happy New Year!

First be amazed: Then, be amazed some more: Super Mario Clone World (Forum Post) The point where technology meets tenacity is always an incredible place to be. This is the kind of stuff I love seeing.

I’d like to share some awesome footage of the latest Convention we attended, from our friends at Geekssociated Press. It contains an awesome featurette of one of our newest games, RoboRiot!

Did you Know (Gaming)?

June 6th, 2012

Sure, some of them might just be unsubstantiated rumors but the vast majority of the content on Did You Know Gaming? is verifiable and just plain entertaining to read. This kind of thing is right up my alley, and surprisingly most of these things I did not know already. It seems that my studies have […]

It may not have a fancy-looking site, but the International Arcade Museum is an amazing place on the internet. They have a growing database of arcade games, pinball machines, slots, music machines, vending machines and more. Gimmick machines and novelty devices from the past galore, most pages with photos. IAM also offers auction listings for […]

Remember when most games consisted of only single screens for each level? Before scrolling to the right even became possible, much less (gasp) scrolling back to the left? A Super Mario Summary is something like that. This game is the entirety of the first Super Mario Bros., but each level is summarized, or “distilled” if […]
