The story of how Michael Nyman ended up scoring Enemy Zero is still one of my all time fave game dev stories. en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enemy_

Fascinated by the look of this game. I associate this specific hyper-crunchy style of Director dithering with western games, so seeing it paired with this very anime artstyle is jarring in an interesting way. (Pasosuke, Bell-da, Mac/Windows, 1996)

Todays unexpected bit of FOSS nostalgia: just discovered I still have a copy of the Frozen Bubble soundtrack on my hard drive

Was reading an old issue of The Body Politic, and came across this old Little Sisters ad. Love seeing an ad this old for a queer bookstore that's still around.


(The Body Politic, August, 1986)

The idea that there’s an early Takashi Murakami interactive work out there that *almost no one has seen* is kind of mind-blowing, honestly.

Some of the people involved have ended up becoming high profile (Takashi Murakami, Gento Matsumoto), but even then I haven’t seen any screenshots of the art, any sign anyone even has them beyond one retrospective on the exhibit.

This was an exhibition held by new media publisher Digitalogue in the early 90s; they invited several prominent artists to create new interactive works on floppy disk. They were exhibited for about a month, and each work available for sale on its own floppy for that month only.

I have a feeling finding the Macintosho (マッキントッ書) disks is going to be… hard. There’s limited information online, but tracking down even *one* of the disks is going to be a real challenge. Might be my white whale for awhile.

I'm looking for sites where I can get anime pictures for my computer. I am new at this so don't be technical. ↯94SEP

I came across a set of BMUG floppy newsletters from the early 90s. I figured these had to be online already, but apparently not? One or two is a duplicate but the others don’t seem to be online yet.

Seeing what people are doing with cohost, and I really wonder if you could do something like Rhizome’s EaaS within a cohost post… really neat opportunities

Question for the Cyan heads out there. Friend found a 1989/1990 DOS CD version of The Manhole that seems to be the EGA version with CD audio and voice acting. Voice acting isn’t in the 256 colour version, right? Is it unique to this revision?
