I wish someone had just told me the truth right up front, as soon as I was old enough to understand it. I wish someone had just said: “Here’s the deal, Wade. You’re something called a ‘human being.’ That’s a really smart kind of animal. Like every other animal on this planet, we’re descended from a single-celled organism that lived millions of years ago. This happened by a process called evolution, and you’ll learn more about it But trust me, that’s really how we all got here. There’s proof of it everywhere, buried in the rocks. That story you heard? About how we were all created by a super-powerful dude named God who lives up in the sky? Total bullshit. The whole God thing is actually an ancient fairy tale that people have been telling one another for thousands of years. We made it all up. Like Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny. “Oh, and by the way … there’s no Santa Claus or Easter Bunny. Also bullshit. Sorry, kid Deal with it."

Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark, in the hopeless swamps of the approximate, the not-quite, the not-yet, the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely frustration for the life you deserved, but have never been able to reach. Check your road and the nature of your battle. The world you desired can be won, it exists, it is real, it is possible, it’s yours."

Hacking Gamers' Memories
While outside doing yardwork the other day, some tune came back into my head, and I couldn’t place it. After a half hour or so of singing it to myself, I finally realized it was the level music from iOS game ZombieSmash—written by my colleague Chris Huelsbeck. This was a game that I had bought and played for only a couple days before it faded into the rest of my 200+ installed apps. But the music pulled me back in, for a little while anyway—and just long enough to hit the next content update.
This, developers, is why audio matters in your game.

Isogenic HTML 5 Game Engine Released
The Isogenic Game Engine is a modern web-based MMO game engine that allows you to rapidly develop your next MMO for the web. Isogenic requires no plugins to run which means players can run your game without Adobe Flash or Microsoft Silverlight, straight from their web browser.
I’ll eagerly be looking for the first Diablo clone to use this.
Blizzard Auctioning Off Old Warcraft Servers
Blizzard Entertainment is offering a series of special charity auctions featuring server hardware originally used during World of Warcraft’s early days. We’ve since upgraded the game’s infrastructure with the latest technology to offer an even better player experience, but these “honorably discharged” server blades are now unique collectors’ pieces.
Even Blizzard is now throwing their junk on Ebay.

The three terrifying minutes that created The Gunstringer
The developer had scored a major meeting with Microsoft to pitch a new game developed exclusively with Kinect (then “Project Natal”) in mind. It needed to be big, it needed to be smart and — most pressingly to Wilford and Bear at that exact moment — it needed to exist.

Ask HN: Has anybody here ever successfully started a videogame company?
I think most of the honest people here 30 or younger will say they got into programming in some part due to videogames. These days, it seems more viable than it used to, with the various routes for self-publishing available through the Xbox Live marketplace and the app markets.
