Lynx 20 years
Here is a small picture of me at the beach of Abel Tasman in January.

My plan is to make a public release of Lynx Solitare at the Lynx 20 years event.

This solitare will have Klondike, Freecell and perhaps Spider as available card games. In addition to that I will sit down on my...

I assume that the Soundtool is the most developer-oriented piece of software on the MegaPak cart. But it can be entertaining for others too.

The MegaPak orchestra consist of 5 instruments.

There is an old saying that when you code a game you get 80% done in 20% of the time. The last 20% of the game then takes up 80% of your time.

This seems to be the case also with MegaPak. We are now fine-tuning the playability of the cart, adding new graphics and fixing tons of small nasty details that our beloved testers don't...
