Yearning for more blog posts

Saturday, October 1st, 2016

Gosh that tumbleweed is clogging up the blog!

I logged into github today and saw this highly active project in my feed called The Yearning

A hybrid singleplayer / multiplayer game about spider drones and the meaning of life.

If that doesn’t mean too much to you (it didn’t to me!) then fortunately you can check out this gif of some gameplay. 

Lots of other projects continue on strongly. Then there’s others that need a bit of TLC. Somebody is having a bit of a go with reviving Open City, which could hopefully lead to making it a bigger project with more contributors later down the line. Then there’s somebody reviving Lips of Suna. That’s the great thing about open source – there’s always a chance somebody is interested enough to take on the mantle should the original developer move on to other things.

Lips of Suna 0.6 and other RPG news

Monday, May 28th, 2012
So my recent rant resulted in a lively discussion about ARPGs, but sadly not really in any contributions or new contributors for Summoning Wars so far… but maybe that was too much to hope for 😉

Anyways, another project I mentioned was just recently updated:

Lips of Suna is now available as Version 0.6 (release notes on our forums) and this release marks the first official release with OGRE3D as the rendering engine. In my rant I dissed that rendering engine a bit due to the lack of good content creation tools (yes I know, not their focus or intention), but at least here it seems to have been put to a good use.

In somewhat unrelated news, there is also a new version of OpenMW, which is continuing at their current fast pace to reimplement that well known RPG. Change-log can be also found in our forums.
