Just a quick game recommendation. Finally got around to play Darq (and do a rare completion of a game). Great stuff!
There are some weak bits here and there. It's not a perfect game by far. But absolutely an enjoyable puzzler.
Actually, the best part designed part of the game is the free DLC. The Tower. Looking forward to the next DLC.

Another good thing is the length... it's short! So that's a good thing for me. So I don't have to feel bad about not completing some behemoth game. Perhaps not for everybody.

Also props to (DK) Bjørn from Cujo Sound on the audio work! Great job!

New DK project: That Alchemist Game from some of our former basment buddies Glow Light Games.



Currently Youtube is being a bunch of (more than usual) cunts and has blocked a lot of content from Denmark over a dispute with KODA. I'm pretty sure the music in this case doesn't have anything to do with the affairs at all?!

So I recommend finding and copy paste the url
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lMs6qpPg5MQ

into a free proxy website like
https://www.croxyproxy.com/
To watch the first footage of the game. Much has happend since last time I saw it! 👍 Go Jonas and Jonas! 🤓🤘

As usual stuff is happening in AI. Impressive stuff! Perhaps some creative minds out there can find a good use for it in a game setting.

Renegade-X is an online shooter fan-made Command & Conquer - Tiberian Sun like project. I think it has been in development for ages. It's built on Unreal Engine 3. So the age shows a bit.
But it looks pretty cool! I tried to get it running a little while back. But no luck. So I haven't been able to verify if it is actually something worthwhile. :/
I hope they get something more solid up and running in the future. Might be good?!

Affinity Photo - v. 1.8.4
So finally with version 1.8.4 I can finally give my personal full recommendation of Affinity Photo
They finally fixed (removed) the Windows Ink implementation! Which means.. drumroll PROPER WACOM support! Yay!

Did I ever mention I hate Windows Ink with all my black and darkened heart. ;)

I got the software on sale in version 1.8.3 at 50% off for 200 DKK for the PC version a few months ago. So it was kind of an impulse purchase. And I have just gotten around to using it properly for doing the cards and layout for my board game (side-project for my side-project). :rolleyes :D :blush

And the verdict is that it's probably the best cheap alternative Photoshop-like software out there in this day and age. Perhaps not perfect. But steadily improving. It's a really sleek software with pretty much any feature would would expect at this price range. That even surpasses PS in some areas and not in others.

For my 200 DKK once on sale.. it was an ABSOLUTE steal!
So if you don't like the notion of putting down the money for Adobe tax to get the real-Photoshop-deal. It is currently sitting at 449,- DKK and it's still a sweet deal in comparison. They also bumped the price a bit. Hope it goes on sale sooner or later again.

Give the free trial a shot!
https://affinity.serif.com/



Obviously there are also some super great and super free open source alternatives out there. Not forgetting.

Krita (Photoshop like keyboard layout option.. helps a lot!)

Gimp (Has improved a lot over the years!)

Rocket 3F is totally new to me! A very simple but effective poly modeling tool. Free and stuffs.

Making a mental note to give it a go when there is time. Just for fun. Looks to have a very short learning curve. Great for beginners to 3D.

So over my summer vacation I finally did it!! I got around to do an update on the Danish game developer company list. Which I have been neglecting for quite some years.
It's not completely done yet. But it's in a state that is ready for public consumption.
I have added columns for social media accounts as well. And direct links to CVR and proff.
Also it should be WAY MORE useful in it's sorting. Grouping and color coded companies in regions and sorting for the biggest fish on top in terms of estimated employee numbers from CVR mostly.

This update was a ton of work! And I plan to be more up to date with the list in the future. It's a bit easier now.

Let me know if you have a company missing on the list. Or have a relevant update you want displayed.

Sadly the graveyard had also grown immensely over the years. But that's nature of business.

Huge 2020 update!
