So, a few days ago, I rediscovered the game Tyrian
. It was a vertical scrolling shooter made in the mid-90s that was exceptionally good for its time and has managed to age very well. What caused me to rediscover it was finding (through stumbleupon) that the game's engine has now been open-sourced and released for free through the OpenTyrian
project. This is especially nice because the game now will run more or less flawlessly under linux without any special emulation required. I highly recommend it to any fans of the scrolling-shooter genre.
