The Week at the Game Research Forum #6

Tuesday, February 18th, 2014 by Devilot

Final Blog entry by yours truly. My “engagement” ends. It’s been a nice ride :) whether it will continue or not depends on you, users.

Listening to “The King of Pride Rock” and “I Just can’t wait to be King” while writing. yeah, I’m still a child at heart.

Closing considerations:

  1. the 3D/2D section of the forum is the most prolific by FAR.
  2. Second one is Game Archive.
  3. What really few people care about is music. Pity :(

  • Lumis’ Max script offer is still valid.
