Games BBC Visitors Play

I had a real boost after visiting the online games of the history section of the BBC site. Loads of educational fun and good use of the medium. Flash, of course.

Another dolphin being freed from a cupboardDolphin Studies

This Finish guy, Matti Vuori, has a page with some pretty amazing CGI stuff. Brings back memories of a Simpsons episode, from the 12th season, named "Treehouse of Horrors XI."

Back Online: filip.stir.org & Longbow

Longbow screenshot, detail.Overcoming tech-dificulties and the revival of the site filip.stir.org leads to re-publishing of the original site for the game Longbow (v. 1.0). Longbow has a decent web presence via copies on other sites (as attested by Google), but having an identifiable base is quite useful. I made it using Macromedia Flash 5 back in January of 2001, and it features from-scratch animated characters, as well as original music score by Vasil Buraliev.

Hopefully, I'll find the time to revamp the whole site, and make some more games. It's fun! :-)
