Okay, remember in my first entry on this blog I said I would post random stuff. And this is the first about a movie, a documentary to be more specific.
The film is called “Zeitgeist” and I guess many of you may have already heard of or even seen it, since it appears to be quite popular around the internet. But I’ve just recently learned about this documentary and watched it.
And what can I say… I guess you have to see it for yourself (in case you didn’t already do so), because “Zeitgeist” deals with some pretty important issues about what’s going on in the world, what really happened on 9/11 and who are the men behind the curtain.
So is this conspiracy bullshit? Well, I won’t incriminate you with my very own opinion on this. But I really really do think that this is an essential viewing. At least if you’re considering yourself a caring and intelligent human being.
The best part is that this movie is completely free. You can go ahead and watch the streaming version using this link or you just let your favorite P2P tool do the work.

Well, I can’t say I’m currently working on any of my game projects. Right now I’m browsing through backups of graphic/mmf files, basically getting an overview of all the stuff I started and never finished. That process is actually quite entertaining (and a little sad).
I was fooling around with some of the unfinished spritework of Alien Trophy Hunter, so here you have something to look at:
It’s not decided yet which project will be revived, but ATH is a candidate for sure…

Yesterday I was surfing the web comparing Dark Basic, Pure Basic and Blitz Basic in order to find an (not too hard to learn) alternative to the authoring software Multimedia Fusion. I also checked some showcase examples on different community sites when I stumbled on the FPS game TECNO the base made by Paolo Cosentino with Blitz3D.
The screenshots looked promising, so I downloaded the demo. And boy, this is great stuff… of course it doesn’t have state of the art graphics, but the game creates an atmosphere which many commercial games lack. Being developed since 2002 a lot of work went into this creation. And it shows for sure. So if you have any taste in good games you should definitely check this out, although it’s not a 2D pixel game.
Get more info and the demo at the official site. The full version is sold at a still reasonable price of 19.99$.

After quite some break I decided to come up with another Pixel Rebirth site. This is the first time I’m using some blog, since I think blogs are pretty useless, hehe.
But I have my own now and will use it to post some more random stuff, mostly in some sort pixel/game related, but not necessarily. Also if there will ever be any info to share about my own projects this will be the right place to look.
So far folks…
