remember that cool video with the even cooler game?
« on: April 06, 2006, 03:43:49 PM »
Say what now?

You know, the cool movie here, where the scientist shows what I want to have for my birthday.

So... what game?

In that movie, said scientist plays several games. And now you can play it too!!!

But I don't get the game; what am I supposed to do?

Yes, like most games, this one is challenging too...

At first I was going to say "did you click 'How Do I Play' ?" but apparently you have... I don't get it either, it just gets harder and harder. That thing you want for your Birthday... it'd make a great interface for Hummingbird
(too bad it's abandoned, that's the archive page. But it's still available here: http://ftp.citkit.ru...ge/h/hu/hummingbird/ )

That's great!  Thanks, housetier.  It get's pretty hard after level 5!

by means of my rss reader I stumbled upon a debian package which contains a game called "untangle". This game looks very much like the aforementioned game from the video.

Ubuntu, which is based on and contributes to Debian, also features this package; although it will only be in the next release of ubuntu ("dapper drake"; June 20, 2006).

People flying the preview releases should try it out and tell me how good it is. I would try myself if I didn't have breezy.

Don't forget to look into your desktop mirrors frequently to spot the approaching boss on time!
