“Alchemy Mysteries: Prague Legends”, now for Linux and on Steam Greenlight

Saturday, February 15th, 2014

Some time ago, we already posted about the Ogre3D-powered game “Alchemy Mysteries: Prague Legends”. Since then, the studio JetDogs has ported the game over to Linux and is now actively trying to get into Steam Greenlight. If you like the game, give them your vote please.

Here their complete press-release:

«Alchemy Mysteries: Prague Legends» – now also for Linux!

For a long time, Linux has been liked mainly by computerists and the computer enthusiasts but not by gamers. But the times are changing and from some time developers started to create wonderful games for Linux. «Alchemy Mysteries: Prague Legends» is one of them. Of course, the decision to adapt this game to Linux was to a certain extent influenced by its success and popularity under Windows.

«Alchemy Mysteries: Prague Legends» is one of the most popular hidden object adventure created by JetDogs Studios. An intriguing plot with many twists, many smart brainteasers and gorgeous game graphics in full 3D that makes scenes and actions completely realistic – all this is available in the story about a young and pretty orphan named Eva which set on her trip to the very heart of Bohemia – the glorious and mysterious town of Prague for coming into an inheritance from her relative who had died under mysterious circumstances. Having arrived in the destination town, she faces ghosts in the deserted house, discloses the band of black magicians aiming to destroy the entire world and, to crown it all, she finds out the truth of her descendance.

Accompanied by its great success, this game was submitted to Ubuntu App Store and soon «Alchemy Mysteries: Prague Legends» can be bought through Ubuntu Software Center.

The game can be also found at Steam Greenlight. At the Steam Greenlight website you can watch the intro video as well as see the screenshots of the game or leave your comments about the game. We’ll be very happy if you could give us your votes to get into Steam!

Great looking 3D medical simulation made with Ogre3D

Thursday, January 10th, 2013

We are very happy that for a change we are able to showcase you a non-gaming application powered by Ogre3D, and a really good looking as well.

It is called Anomalous Medical of the same name company and – as the name suggests – a medical simulation. More exactly it is a medial framework based around the human head, meaning that it offers a very detailed and anatomically correct model of a human head that you can move around, look into and examine in various other ways. What makes it a framework is the fact that partners as well as Anomalous Medical can now create a wide variety of apps (covering dental issues, nerve blocks, certain muscles areas, etc.) that can be loaded in to deal with specific medial situations and defects. The whole idea behind this product:

Our apps and simulations are designed to assist 21st century medical professionals to save time, to enhance the image of their practice and, most important, to better communicate with patients.

The base application is free for everyone.  Only the medical apps as well as certain advanced editor features have to be bought in their store. For more information, download links and additional images, please check out their website.

Happy New Year and then some more…
