TDC residents SMR and Sketchy have written some very nice examples of spinning arcade shooters and custom path finding. Even if you have no immediate use for such techniques, they are well worth downloading to keep in that ever essential collection of MMF examples I assume everyone has!
The enigmatic, long time member, Dustin Gunn has just unleashed his newest game onto TDC in the form of Mayhem Triple and damn, does it look good. REALLY GOOD. I'm sure it's been written off as vaporware by numerous people (myself included) but here it is. Go play it!
SMR has cooked up another competition, around the theme of the Greek Zodiac.
The rules are fairly simple:
1) State up front what your Zodiac inspiration for the game happens to be in the following thread.
2) Make a video game that is inspired in some way by the classic Greek Zodiac. Any kind of game, any length, any genre or style is welcome.
3) The deadline for all submissions is 12:00 GMT, 31st May 2013.
4) All games must include this most bodacious logo in a beginning splash screen (download here). Kudos to OMC for making the snazzy logo!
The best game entered will recieve a CD containing all the entries, and a zodiac themed prize.
For further discussion, please discuss the competition here. Kudos to SMR for organising this, and I hope to see some great games made!

Jamie's Revenge creator Jake G is back with a new game created with the iOS runtime, and if you like exploring madness and insanity in your mind, this game is certainly for you! Nightmerica is a crazy assault on your brain, with your protagonist fighting over 20 monsters with numerous, randomly generated guns to assist you in your quest to... kill.
Comments from the Author:
"Nightmerica is a game about facing the monsters inside your head, and shooting them with a whole load of bullets. Drawing on the retro spirit of arcade games and the… Explosions? Of modern titles. Face hoardes of monsters in three different arenas, using any of the infinitely randomly generated guns, sidearms or special weapons. Show your nightmares who's boss! "

And Hello Again! Friend neighborhood admin here, with yet ANOTHER download. At this point in time it's Solgryn who has provided us with an alpha look at Wings of Vi. I'll let him explain.
Comments from the Author:
Wings of Vi is a challenging platform game in which you control the angel Vi. One day Vi and her friend, Rubi go to the ceaseless prison in heaven, where a powerful evil being is held in custody. Their visit leads to the chains being broken and the evil is set free to reak havoc upon the world.
Inspired by games such as I Wanna Be The Guy, Cave Story, Megaman and Castlevania, Wings of Vi is an interesting mix between challenge, story and with room for both exploring and tricky platforming.

Graphics has been slightly improved with an increased colourcount while
