The Game Incubator

I'm assessing the feasibility of starting a 'Game Incubator' in Perth, Western Australia. The idea primarily being to service independent developers and artists, and assist with startups. It will be a place where people can rent a desk for a month or two, network with other professionals, and share the camaraderie of game development.

If you're local to Perth, and interested, please take the survey.

Cobra vs Python

I've been investigating different .net languages for use with Mono. I've spent some time with Boo, and have decided I don't like it. It feels immature due to poor syntax error reporting, and silently changes the scope of variables when there happens to be an inadvertent mix of tabs and spaces in your source code. Yuck.

Then I came across Cobra. The language comparison with Python stung a little, I guess because it had some valid points.

Cobra vs Python

There is definitely a lot of flame bait in there, but the point about being "self hosted" resonates with me.

The Saga of Duke Nukem is over...

I've just read that 3D Realms is shutting down. 3D Realms have been working on Duke Nukem Forever for over 12 years.

Now that the story is over, I want to see a postmortem and timeline. What really went wrong with Duke Nukem Forever?
