— Confessions of a Tech Junkie

Just saw this linked on IRC.

Crayon Physics Deluxe looks like a really fun game, makes me wish I had a tabletpc to play it on but I think I’ll see how well it works with an attached graphics tablet. The game was a year old on Jan 7th so Petri is celebrating by allowing  people to pay whatever they want for the full game until Jan 15th. Fantastic idea, I hope he does well from his sale. I found out there’s an iPhone App version too, awesome.

Tobias Weyand did a great ds homebrew physics game inspired by the original Crayon Physics called Pocket Physics. Tobias describes it as is a mashup of The Incredible Machine, Crayon Physics and Line Rider, Craig Harris from IGN describes it as “digital crack” 🙂

Firstly, happy new year and welcome to 2010. Still no sign of Moonbase Alpha or monoliths orbiting Jupiter but Virgin Galactic seem to be gearing up for relatively cheap commercial space flights. Interesting times are definitely afoot.

Over the last few years I’ve made several abortive attempts to maintain a blog but something always seems to get in the way so this year I’ve decided to make more of an effort – a new year’s resolution I suppose, not that I subscribe to such things. My writings here will be primarily technology focused with some social commentary and politics thrown in for good measure. Quite a lot will probably be about programming and electronics projects related to devkitPro – my attempt to make game console programming much more accessible to people outside the games industry.

If there’s anything in particular you’d like to see me write about then do please feel free to comment here.
