Angels and Demons…and a Photosynth Game

image The sequel Angels and Demons to the widely popular (and for some reason controversial) movie “The Da Vinci Code” is set to release in theatres in May 2009. Until then, you can play detective in the online Angels and Demons, The Path of Illumination Contest / Game hosted by MSN featuring Microsoft Photosynth. You ready to burn most of your day in mind-boggling puzzles only to be perplexed by more puzzled buried in Photosynths? Get cracking.


Basically, crack several puzzles to get to the Photosynth. The Photosynth contains a clue. There are four levels – Earth, Air, Fire and Water. Finish all the levels, get all the Photosynths, find all the clues and submit your entry for a chance to win a a slough of prizes including a trip to Rome, Italy! Nice. Good luck. The puzzles are NOT easy – honestly, it might take until May 2009 to actually finish the puzzles.

    A new Microsoft web app powered by Flash. Truly pathetic, someone ought to be fired.

    I was wishing for Silverlight too, but most design companies (this was almost certainly outsourced) work with Flash, so until Silverlight has the reach into the design shops we’ll continue to see Flash apps…even on MS properties. Hard to change 10 years of saturation in the market.

    Project requirements:

    1) Cool game

    2) Implemented in Silverlight

    "Can’t do Silverlight? Thanks for your time, goodbye."

    It’s really that simple.

    Because the best online game development shops have adopted Silverlight? Hmm. I only wish that were true. Really not that simple.
