No, I haven’t been maxing out my moo account again, I was just fortunate to enter a competition that Osmosoft, the sponsors of Opentech were running and be lucky enough to win the second place prize 😀
What’s cool about the GP2X is that it’s powered by Linux and you can write your own games or import games and emulators that other developers have built. It’s lots of fun and there are a couple of sites devoted to free games that you can pick and choose from – such as www.gp32x.com.
But wait… The GP2X isn’t just cool for playing games, you can run DivX movies on it, look at photos, read ebooks and play your OGGS on it – how cool is that!
I’ve been playing with it today and my favourite game so far is VEKTAR, which is like a cross between Asteroids and Geometry Wars.
Anyways, I’m very grateful to Jeremy Ruston, creator of tiddlywiki and the Osmosoft gang for my lovely GP2X, and I’m also hoping to develop a proper working version of the ‘Travelcat-log’ soon with the help of the tiddlywiki development group 😀
