I have not had time lately to scour the Web for games worthy of discussion here. Presently I am 'nose to the grindstone' at work studying for a practical exam in XSLT tomorrow, and working on a multi-user Flash adventure game. Look for another update again soon.
Filed under the 'downloadable' category, someone recently asked if Orpheus' Revenge was available anywhere online to download. Well, it just so happens that it is. Dan Volpe, code-master and one of our original Orpheus' Revenge team members, has put up a Web page for the game complete with a zip-file containing an executable of the game (Windows, DirectX 9.0b+).
Orpheus' Revenge is a 2D side-scrolling platform shooter game. It was developed at RIT as part of the Games Programming course concentration taught by Andy Phelps during the 10-week winter quarter, 2003-2004. The team responsible for the game consisted of: Dan Volpe, Nate Rode, Alex Cutting, Patrick Bellanca, and yours truly. Click.
While you are there, check out Dan's resume and other details. I hear he's looking for a job, and he is one of the best software engineers I have met while at RIT.
