Firmament by Cyan Worlds

As a fan of Myst and Obduction, I’ve been looking forward to playing this since I backed it on Kickstarter in 2019.  The environments really look amazing in VR!

Lemmings 🎮

I’ve recently been enjoying the Amiga version of Lemmings on my retro handheld. It’s surprising how many solutions to the levels I still remember after so many years!

Playing without a mouse is a bit tricky, but I’ve set the analog stick to move the mouse quickly, and then the d-pad moves it in smaller increments for fine adjustments. I also mapped some buttons to the keyboard controls for quickly switching between skills.

As someone that grew up with the MS-DOS version, it’s interesting to hear how the music was supposed to sound!

DCSquares for Playdate

With the news that Playdate group 4 will finally start shipping soon, I’ve spent the weekend porting DCSquares to the #PlaydateSDK.

DCSquares was originally released as a homebrew game for the SEGA Dreamcast in 2004, and has been ported to various other platforms over the past 20 years.

Here’s a sneak peek of a very early prototype running on the Playdate simulator. The original game relies heavily on colors, so adapting it to a monochrome display was quite a challenge!
