Recently on Offworld: word play, Deadmau5 meets Zelda, Langdell v. Mobigame
Recently on Offworld
we played with words in two ways: first, by downloading our latest iPhone obsession, NewToy's Friends With Words
, as svelte and streamlined as an online-multiplayer Scrabble-alike we've played, and as perfect (read: dangerously addictive) as the original Scrabulous
proved when it first dominated Facebook.
We then saw Flashbang co-founder Matthew Wegner solve PopCap's fellow iPhone word-smither Bookworm
with science, with a fully automated OCR word-finder
that just might be expanded to a web service soon.
Elsewhere, we saw Spore, Fathom
and more indie all-star devs joining August's rapid-proto Experimental Gameplay competition
, electro star Deadmau5 taking on Zelda
, learned what Disneyland can teach devs about game design
, and saw "worlds first computer programmer" Ada Lovelace coming to LittleBigPlanet
with other historical friends.
Finally, we found a wicked Mario 64 optical illusion papercraft
, looked inside Italy's Art of Games gallery exhibit
, read the latest, fantastically well researched update on the Tim Langdell v. Mobigame trademark battle
, and our 'one shot's: Parappa and Umjammer Lammy play in "My First Rockband"
, and gorgeously abstract picture-postcards from Wipeout HD
