Co-founders of Codemasters made ‘Commanders of the Order of the British Empire (CBE)’

Full story at the BBC. I am happy that the brothers David and Richard Darling, who started their company in the mid-80′s, were honored for their “services to the computer games industry”. They have blazed a trail for independent game developers to follow, and I am truly grateful to them for their pioneering efforts as […]

Poor Man’s Flash

John Hattan has written a review of Express Animator on GameDev.net, and Flex SDK / Silverlight developers who do not have access to the corresponding designer’s tools (Flash / Expression Blend) might find his review interesting.

Subpixel Rendering for Pygame

Will McGugan has just posted some Pygame code that will allow subpixel rendering, which should allow Pygame developers to render smooth looking graphics using software rendering only. I haven’t tried the code yet, although it says in the post that the rendering should be as fast as ordinary blits, but more memory will be taken […]
