Programming changed? Forever? Ternary computers aren't particularly new. The Soviets made some, and I'm sure the Western world did too.

Vampire Slayer Squad (Android game) This is neat! I love Space Hulk and I was thinking of putting together a quick roguelike for Android. Can you tell us more about how you're doing rendering? I have a few prototype tilemaps working but I need to do more profiling to figure out which i...

1366x768 As far as I know, the Macbook Pro 15.4" machines have always been at least 1440x900. Mine is optioned up to 1680x1050. I thought pretty much every other laptop was using the same panels, but I guess not. The Macbook Air is 1366x768, but that's for...

The Daily Huh, you are correct. I was thinking of the two generations of consoles that have elapsed since the first game was released, and specifically the Saturn.

The Daily I think we're going to basically be competing to get a proper cable; I just hooked up the RF and it's nasty (rainbow banding like crazy on my crappy SDTV) and awful sound. Let me know if you find a place peddling them.

The Daily I have donated to other Kickstarter indie game projects in the past. It really does work.

Krome :'( Best of luck to everyone affected by this. It really sucks; Krome has been around for a seriously long time (including as Beam Software, which made a lot of Super Nintendo hits). To shutter suddenly like this is incredibly awful.
