TA Spring is a great game that implements a 3d engine for the original game Total Annihilation. THe original is a classic, and the new engine extends the gameplay.

More later.

By the way, if you have an error with no libboost_regex-gcc43-mt-1_35.so.1.35.0, you need to copy all of the game’s libraries (~/Spring/lib) into /usr/lib. That one got me for a moment.


Tweeler: Free Linux Games 13 November, 2008

A new site, called tweeler has been launched. At the moment, it has tow ports of games from indie developer Tony Oakden. These are called Atomic Worm and Go Ollie!.

The first is a slightly strange, but fresh take on the old game of snake. You move around a board, needing to complete a chain of flowers of a particular variety. This is complicated by the fact that there are different varieties and only so many moves that you can make on the oddly shaped boards. The game has a slightly surrealist feel to it, with random poetry flashing up now and then. The music and graphics give the game a very solid feel. It’s a game that you’ll get into.

Go Ollie! is a mouse based platformer. You are a worm that jumps around platforms, collecting coins. It has good music and graphics, but I didn’t like the gameplay so much.

WordPress is having some problems. Graphics later.
