Every time I'm with Insane at Fujiama, I learn new things. This year, I've learned that I can use "minge64-gcc-..." under Cygwin to create self-contained binaries under Cygwin on Windows. And I've learned there is an excellent shoot-em-up I had never heard of called "Tyrian". Originally an MS-DOS-based game written in Pascal and x86 assembly, it has been made open source and is available for many platforms today as OpenTyrian. Ross's Game Dungeon: Tyrian is a really good and entertaining review of the game.
