It's been six months!

Yes. That’s how long it’s been since last I wrote. Not that I wasn’t interested or anything, I had a lot of work! My final year project and my internship at PayPal, eBayInc. It wasn’t easy. Going to work in the morning and coming back to work on the college project. Phew! My college project’s done and its my last week of internship now, ending on June 6th. And the best part - I’m back to working on things I’ve missed since the past 6-7 months!

Its a typical day and I’m just looking at Recommended Videos in my YouTube, which are usually songs/music/mixes; that’s what I listen to. So I’m there, listening to UK Piano’s new video and I find a playlist recommended for me. In that playlist is a Cello cover of Game of Thrones by BreakofReality. YouTube then features Misty Mountains Orchestral Cover from The Hobbit by sleightlymusical in my Recommended for You list. Now it comes! Another video recommended for me from ThePianoGuys. And WOW!

0 A.D. Fundraiser: 3 weeks remain!

Note: This is a blog post from an older version of this website. Links and styles on this page might not work/render as expected.

0 A.D. is a free and open source, historical RTS game. The concept of the game was designed in 2003 and was developed for around six years as a closed-source freeware project. In 2009 the game went open source under the GPL license and art content under CC-BY-SA. This steadily attracted a lot of contributors ranging from art designers to programmers to develop the game. Much of the development and contribution started after the project was open sourced.

0 A.D. Game

I grew up in a time where Age of Empires was everything! You can’t find many people who haven’t played it. Many others followed suit; Empire Earth for example. But they were not like Age of Empires. Ensemble Studios (now Microsoft Studios) did revolutionize the real-time strategy genre of computer games. The question is, how many who played have actually bought it?
