Circuit Bending |
"This year, Moog’s circuit bending contest is challenging entrants to take a battery powered device and circuit bend it into an instrument capable of creating new and unique sounds for a total budget of $70 or less." Sorely tempted by this.

Slow swordfighting : Cennydd Bowles
Lovely, deep, expert post from Cennydd on the World Chess Championships; it reminds me of my favourite writing about sports and games tournaments. It is not, in many ways, that far removed from Evo.

THE GRIND: SOCAL EDITION (SF4 TRAINING & SBO QUALS) - iPLAYWINNER FIGHTING GAME NEWS - Street Fighter Virtua Fighter Tekken SNK Capcom BlazBlue Fighting Game News Strategy and Guides at
Huge, and a bit baggy, but nontheless interesting account of a trip to the SBO Qualifiers in the US; if anything, makes me sad that there's no way we'll ever see an arcade scene like this in the UK ever again.

The 11th Annual Independent Games Festival - Entries
All 226 entrants for the 2009 IGF. Heard of - and played - some of these, but many are unknown. Exciting to see the list, though, if only to be reminded that there's this many games being made and funded independently, at the large and small scale.

TIGsource Demake Competition - Results
The results are now out. No surprises that Soundless Mountain II wins, but nice to see a late entry from the entertainingly Crush pastiche, "Squish". In Squish, a 2D game gets flattened to a 1D game at the touch of a button! Brilliant.

Making Book - Coudal Partners
'Each bet costs $10 and all the money bet will go to First Book, "a nonprofit organization with a single mission: to give children from low-income families the opportunity to read and own their first new books."' Ten winners will get a prize. Lovely idea.
