Submission + - Wesnoth creator releases new open source game (frogatto.com)

LethargicParasite writes: From the original developer of Wesnoth comes the open source side-scroller Frogatto, available for free on Linux, Mac, & Windows. Their website describes the making of the game and its highly modular game engine, their development of Frogatto Markup Language (FML) for describing game data, and their development of the Frogatto Formula Language (FFL) for calculations within FML.

The game combines excellent old-school 16-bit-style graphics with enchanting music, clever dialogue and story, and an adventurous protagonist.

Submission + - Open-source game Frogatto released for free (frogatto.com) 1

LethargicParasite writes: The open-source Frogatto is now available for free on Linux, Mac, & Windows. A paid version is available for the iPhone. Their website describes the making of the game, their development of Frogatto Markup Language (FML) for describing game data, and their development of the Frogatto Formula Language (FFL) for calculations within FML. The terms of the open source are similiar to Penumbra Overture's.

The game itself is good too.

Submission + - Theory for Expansion of Universe

LethargicParasite writes: "In a recent astronomy class, my professor was talking about the expansion of the universe. He mentioned three key things:
1. The universe is likely expanding.
2. The velocity of the expansion of the universe is likely increasing.
3. Whatever causes the expansion of the universe is likely the cause of the bubble structure of the universe.
I came up with a theory that the professor could not refute outright: The expansion of the universe is the result of black holes converting matter (which takes up space) into a singularity (which does not take up space). This theory could explain the bubble-like structure of the universe, the expansion of the universe, and perhaps even the acceleration of the universe. So. Is this theory even falsifiable without looking for black holes at the centre of the voids?"
