Administrative Help Request (misc)

Dear visitors,

As you all know PDRoms is a non profit homebrew resource. Our server is having some issues which I can’t solve on my own as I don’t really have in depth knowledge with Debian-Linux.

If you consider yourself a Linux geek and would like to help out on a regular base, please get in touch with Kojote (see Main Menu/Contact).

Thanks in advance!

Sqrxz WIP (14-04-2010) (misc Game)

The Giana’s Return Team is currently on a creativity break, which actually means they are working on another project. The project picked up is “SQRXZ”, which is a damn hard to play and aged action-platform-puzzle game known from DOS and Gameboy Color.

Today the team released a brand new screenshot with the “deluxe” graphic set to the public. Seems nice, doesn’t it?

The game will be available for multiple platforms across old and new systems!

Misc (misc)

Dear all,

While I try my very best to keep PDRoms running as free and hopefully informative news source, my energy level is now at a level where it’s time for a battery refill – if a refill is possible at all.

I’ve been forcing myself the past weeks to keep things in the way they are, but they are just an additional load of things to do. For my very own sake and the sake of my family I’ve to pull the emergency break now.

PDRoms has two valuable helping hands, Kedo and Celeth, who will hopefully help out with news and further develop and improve the page itself.

Regards
Kojote
