Evening Reading

Attention developers, amateur or otherwise: Shacker mittense points out that EA LA has released Angel, a free 2D game prototyping engine. Even in its simplicity, it looks far too technical for me to comment on, but some of you out there might have some use for it.

In other news, Shacknews alum Chris Remo published a great Far Cry 2 interview on Gamasutra today. It's an interesting read, especially if you've been playing through the game recently, as I have. While I think Far Cry 2 is often wholly engrossing, and an admirably risky project, I'm not sure I agree with all of the choices the team made. Will likely post some of my thoughts on it next week.

Industry's heating back up again. I'm plowing through Halo Wars and Resident Evil 5 this weekend, and checking out Dawn of War 2 co-op next week. Impressions impending.
