Turbulenz Game Engine Goes Open Source

“Nerdy News” is a mini-news show geared towards gamers, technosexuals, and all other geeky peeps.

In this one hundred and fifthteenth episode of Nerdy News, I’ll be reporting on:

  • The creators of “Nyan Cat” and “Keyboard Cat” have sued 5th Cell Media for “borrowing” their creations.
  • Markus Notch Persson has released a new online typing game, titled “Drop“.
  • Pixel Press is an iOS app that allows its users to litterally “sketch” game levels.
  • The HTML5 game engine has gone open source

Here’s the new episode of Nerdy News!

What do you think?

Why do you think WB and 5th Cell didn’t take the ownership of YouTube meme cats seriously? Do you think more effort should be made by developers to make educational games that are actually fun and challanging? Do you think programs and apps like Pixel Press will open up the indie genre to more amature game makers? Would you personally be more likely to dabble in game design if you could more easily get a engine to work on?
