A Game (And A World) That Never Was

A long time ago, after many years away from computers of any kind, I went back to coding. At that time, exactly like today, I was deeply involved with consoles stuff, so I really appreciated when Sony put for sale its PS2 Linux Kit. It was back in 2002, so I don’t know how many […]

Zork 1. The Great Underground Empire Review

I’ve always been a diligent student, so my parents never complained if I was spending too much time in front of my Commodore 128. After all, it actually was the mid-’80s and I was attending a tech school to get a diploma in computer science. Other kids were not as lucky since it is indeed […]

Leather Goddesses of Phobos Review

I’ve always been a videogame lover, possibly even before fully understanding what a computer really was.
