Russell & Craig & Vintage GMing

First stop on today’s news list is the latest issue of Russell’s Quarterly magazine.

Issue 3, like the previous two versions of the magazine is heavily text based with 72 pages worth of content.

Among the pages is a mountain of various articles and reviews covering all aspects of game design, including one article entitled “My Wife Asked Me to Write This” which made me chuckle.

Second on today’s list is Caveman Craig. You may remember this game as the second place winner by Rhys Andrews in the last YoYo Game’s competition. As of this moment the team is already working on a 2nd version of the game, and has released a public 1.5 Beta.

Last for today is caHarkness‘ attempt to push the limits and run Game Maker on less than adequate computing hardware. Specifically a laptop with a 40mhz processor, a few MB of memory and Windows 95. Although recent Game Maker versions 6 – 7 have much higher system requirements, caHarkness believes using GM version 1.1 or 2 on the laptop might be a possibility.
