Transcend can best be described as retro-style, abstract, 2D shooter. The graphics are geometrical, and the pace is sometimes frenzied. Two features set Transcend apart from other games. First, its dynamic graphical engine, which can smoothly morph from one complex shape to another in realtime, produces striking displays. Combining these dynamic shapes with subtle randomizations ensures that each new play through a level is visually different from the last. The second novel feature is the musical power-up system. As you play through a level, you are simultaneously assembling an abstract visual collage and arranging a unique piece of music.
Turaco CL is a tool for extracting PNM image files out of arcade game ROMs. It also can regenerate arcade game ROMs from PNM image files. Once the image files have been extracted, you can edit them in your favorite paint program. They can then be encoded back into game ROMs to be played in an emulator or real arcade hardware.
KaGez-Production aims to make game developing under Linux easier. Tutorials and examples, reaching from simple console applications (non- graphical) to OpenGL games, are available, as well as tools like Image-Viewers, and 3D-Model viewers. All applications will be made for Linux only, most graphical items will work with GTK+/GNOME.
World Foundry is a 3D level game engine and asset production pathway with over 170,000 lines of code. It was originaly created as a commercial product, but is now being released under the GPL. The engine was designed from the beginning to be cross platform, and ran on Windows (DirectX, GL), and the Sony Playstation. The production pathway ran on Windows, and extended 3DStudio Max to be our level editor. The engine is currently being ported to Linux (it runs, but needs work), with plans to port the production pathway as well. Developers are wanted to help with this effort.
