Ashlann mentions Crayon Physics again! (a worthy re-mention imo!)

It's also fun to even work as a team if someone is there with you.

And yes, Crayon Physics Deluxe is available for the iPhone. It's a nice idea for the iPhone but the size of the screen relative to your fingers makes it difficult to navigate your drawings. You do get used to it to a point though.


I was interested with the discussion about the re-release of Monkey Island
Telltale Games are certainly giving this a lot of effort..
Telltale Games - Tales of Monkey Island - FAQs

Here's some interesting info on the series (includes timeline)

Serious Sam is also being re-released in a High-Definition version.

Serious Sam was released in 2001 and received numerous awards, including Game of the Year from Gamespot and the Editor's Choice award from IGN. Based on Croteam's Serious Engine 3, Serious Sam HD sticks to the original by sending the hero to the battlefields of various ancient civilizations against Mental's armies. The same speed and action-packed game mechanics and the characteristic humor have been preserved and will shine like new in high definition!

Croteam - Get Serious!

I don't know what exactly to make of this comercial but yeh LOL




Stef, you mentioned that due to time you wouldn't re-play an old favourite if it was remade. I recently played an old favourite of mine. I purchased Unreal Gold on Steam and played the Unreal Mission Pack I: Return to Na Pali! expansion. This 1998 game offered more then than many games do now: superb singleplay, BOT play, multiple muliplay gametypes, dedicated server, plus more.
(Unreal Gold contains the original 1998 Unreal plus the 1999 expansion)

There have been rumors floating around the net that something new in the 'Unreal' world is coming soon... I'm hoping for a co-op Unreal 3!




Thanks again for an awesome Podcast!

cheers
