FOR SALE / WANTED / WANTED: Bread Bin C64 [Preferably dead]
« on: May 11, 2012, 10:09:52 PM »
This is for a project (but no mini-pc or raspberry-pi here  ;) ), so I'd rather gut a dead one than a working unit,  but if it is dead that the keyboard was at least working when it died.    Just looking for the main unit, I don't need cables etc.   Cosmetic condition isn't a problem either, as long as it's in one piece.

GAMING . . . / The Humble Introversion Bunble
« on: November 29, 2011, 11:44:58 AM »
I'm sure at least a few members have already heard of The Humble BundIe, but as I mentioned this to a couple of people at the weekend that hadn't I thought I'd do a quick post. The current bundle has a bit of a retro feel, so stick with me  ;).  The concept is the Humble Bundle team collect together some indie games and offer them for sale as a job lot.  You pick how much you want to pay, and how the money is split between the Devs, the HB team , and the two supported charities.  The purchase window is limited, and currently has a week left to run.
   
All the details here: http://www.humblebundle.com/

The games I thought most appealing to people here are:

Darwinia: Think a tech version of settlers/C&C in a Tron-esque style.
Multiwinia: Muliplayer version of Darwinia, with added game mode like capture the flag, etc.
Uplink: Black-hat hacker simulator.
DefCon - "Let's play Global Thermonuclear war" - in a style inspired by the film War Games. Play against the computer or up 6 humans.  Don't like the way someone treated your Oric? Settle it with gentlemanly game of global destruction  :P 

All the games are cross platform for OS X, Linux (.deb, .rpm, .tar.gz), and Windows. The downloads are DRM-free,  and you can get keys for services like Steam where they are available. 

Sorry, no ZX81s this time  :D

Personally I have all the games I'm interested in, but I'm grabbing this anyway for a few bucks just for the Steam keys and the option of playing Darwinia and Uplink on my Linux netbook.

PS.  Just so there is no confusion, I'm not connected with these companies in anyway shape or form, just spreading the word.  :)
