Competition To Create Games For Cats

Cat food Manufacturer Purina are running a hackathon to create games for cats the top prize is $15k with $3k and $2k runner up prizes.

I’ve had mixed success getting my cat to play with my iPad I’ve downloaded Game for Cats but my cats seem to not be very interested in it, I think because the mouse/laser pointer thing they chase leaves the screen just as they start to get interested in it, my cats invariably end up trying to look under the iPad for it.

The developers of the afore mentioned game have provided advice to other developers who want to make their own games for cats over at Gamustura if you want to participate.

Here is a short video of Game for Cats in action:

The Mary Sue’s Blade Runner Fan Work Contest!

The Mary Sue are running a Bladerunner fan art contest, It’s worth going over there to look at the submissions, most of which are mostly photography based and quite cool. I really like the above submission by diablo2003 partly because it’s awesome but also because it makes me want a Bladerunner Anime… I might have to watch AD Police tonight…

In case you were wondering AD Police is an Anime that was a spin off of Bubblegum Crisis, Bubblegum Crisis is Awesome and heavily inspired by Bladerunner, but AD Police is a more nitty gritty police drama.

Walk and Talk the Vote – West Wing Reunion

I need to post this so I can close the window in my browser. Bridget Mary McCormack who is the sister of Mary McCormack who plays Kate Harper on the West Wing, is running for supreme court in Michigan, so she got the cast of the West Wing to make an add for her. It’s pretty good.
