Period movies are interesting to watch. Seeing all sorts of costumes and scenarios, as well as weapons. There are people who simply love Western movies and all things cowboy related. Must be all those shoot ‘em up scenarios in the desert, as well as the salons. I would think that some people would love to try living in those times for the awesome western adventures!
Well, games could be an interesting substitute to traveling back in time for a Western adventure or two. In this case, you could check out “Smokin’ Guns” – an open source game that lets you play with different modes of play as well as use various weapons in that match the theme. : D If you want to play in a network, you also have the option as with Counterstrike and Quake. First person shooter fans will find it a different experience in terms of the period, and the terrain too. Don’t forget the matching background music. Wild West, here comes gamers robbing banks or outsmarting each other. *lol* I read about this on Unixmen’s blog entry about Smokin’ Guns. For more details, check out the Smokin’ Guns website.
In other news, you could now buy the game World of Goo for any price you like. Yes! Name the price and it’s yours. The famous game which is available not only for Windows, but on Linux as well, is celebrating its first birthday! As a way to celebrate World of Goo‘s birthday, 2Boy studios has a promo that you could get it for the price of your choice. Isn’t that a big birthday blowout or what? If you want to give the developers way more than 20 USD, no one’s stopping you either. And this is one very interesting game and I do think we should encourage its developers to keep coming up with more fun and interesting challenges that will keep us hooked!
