Another game format

Wednesday, October 17th, 2007

I remember playing game “Lost Vikings” by Silicon&Synapse (who was later renamed to Blizzard).

Lost Vikings 2
Lost vikings (again) and additional creatures. Endgame scene.

Who knew that it had a sequel? It was done by Beam Software and looks less appealing to me than original. But it has cutscenes and audio in its own format, which makes it a bit more interesting. A contributor, who wishes to remain anonymous, sent me his description of this format so I was able to implement demuxer and decoder for their video and it will be committed soon (I hope). Details of this format are already here.

As a follow-up to the theme set by Michael here are my few random shots of flowers (made in the Western Ukraine, several thousands kilometers from my home).
