Software News : A new, quality, physic-engine based game "GISH" for AOS4 !

Software News

For now, one of the very popular games is also available for AmigaOS4 and its called : GISH (original site).


Gish is a 2D platform game developed by Alex Austin, Edmund McMillen and Josiah Pisciotta and distributed by Chronic Logic, Stardock and other distributors. The game was featured in The Humble Indie Bundle. Following the success of the promotion, Cryptic Sea pledged to go open source with the game which eventually happened on May 29, 2010.

You can download it from os4depot (and also check screenshots). But screenshots will tell you almost nothing, because the best side of it its game play and physic. For example you can check that video, for making right opinion about.

Remember, you need download somethere or buy full game, for get huge data files from (60mb packet / 200 unpacked). But the game worth of it !

Game itself uses OpenGL for rendering and SDL for others, so, 1ghz of cpu are pretty preferable for smooth and fast plaing.

Enjoy !

@Magic
Yes, i write about that in readme

@TSK
I tryed right now, and while source have defines for demo version, still, it works wrong. For example data files of demo version which i download, have directory leveldemo. But in all the source "leveldemo" words is not present => source for the full game.

Of course it possible to spend some time for and make it works with demo versions, but it make no sense in general ..

ps. new version is coming, with fixes related to menu (load/replay/highscore/etc). Strange that noone notice that (what mean not so many trying to play in it :) ).
