When old-timers talk about the halcyon days of space games, they mention series like X-Wing and Wing Commander. They also, in the same breath—and often before—mention Elite.
David Braben, whose Frontier Developments studio has delivered Elite, Rollercoaster Tycoon 3, LostWinds and, yes, Kinectimals, has now created Raspberry Pi. It's not a game, it's a working, Linux-based PC on something not much larger than a standard USB memory stick.
This cake featuring a crashed Air Force One is based on a game David Braben's Frontier Developments is making. Their most recent work was the toss-frisbees-at-cute-tigers game Kinectimals. But could this be Braben's reminder of something thought lost, something cooler?
Lostwinds is pretty great, but because it's only available on WiiWare, many people are missing out. Maybe a version on the 360 or PlayStation 3 could be a little more inclusive.
