We've prepared a zine version of "How to Throw a Squatted Dance Party."
This anonymous step-by-step guide was composed by people who organize squatted dance parties. The link between unauthorized dancing and radical politics extends back decades, from the early rave scene and the worldwide squatting movement through Reclaim the Streets and Occupy. Such adventurous events can demonstrate how much more joyous life could be.
If you’d like to help test future versions of Retrospecs, you can sign-up to the TestFlight beta…
As with all TestFlight apps purchases aren’t charged, so you can unlock the full version and have a play. (You’ll likely have to login, but you’ll be shown a message stating that you won’t be charged.)
I just found a nice tutorial on how to write a simple game in #assembler on the #zxspectrum in 30 minutes (!) and I think this may be interesting to some of you:
The blog also features many more articles on Spectrum game coding in assembler so you may want to look at further blog posts there, e.g. there's also a great article on how the Spectrum video memory is arranged and how to address it properly.

The problem with basing a video on the Gamasutra post mortem of Crackdown is that it's mostly complete and utter bollocks, written when RTW were whoring for 110 MILLION EARTH DOLLARS to make APB, which, ironically, was also a complete fucking shit-show, from start to finish.
Right, ok, I have an indexed colour workflow I can live with. Things are being blit!
TIL that using GIF or PNG8 for a 16 colour, palette based workflow, is a complete waste of time.
Everything promotes them to 256 colour, or 24bit, because you know, it's the future... *sigh*
But, I've just found the cute single header parser for Aseprite, so tonight I'm gonna see if that'll work...
