RE: Prince of Nigeria is a charming and hilarious e-mail based visual novel based on a girl who falls in love with the ‘Prince of Nigeria’ in a well known internet scam.

When contacted by a wealthy Prince from Nigeria who desires to move $20 million into your bank account to keep it from his greedy brothers, your naïve protagonist is intrigued and captivated by his plight.  She is very keen to help this Prince who is in such dire need, and learn more about this enigmatic man, cloaked in mystery, who’s bold enough to write all his e-mails ENTIRELY IN CAPITAL LETTERS.

What follows if a heartfelt (or very silly) tale of love and loss as you fall head over heels in love with the mysterious Prince.  Will you send him your bank details?  Or will you test his love and see if he really feels the same way about you?

In case there was any doubt that Microsoft’s war against Linux is (mostly) over, the company just offered another olive branch. The company has revealed that its PowerShell team is working on support for the Secure Shell protocol and shell sessions (aka SSH) to make it easier for Windows- and Linux-based PCs to connect to and remotely control each other. While SSH has been an option in the Windows world, Microsoft’s Angel Calvo says there have been “limited implementations” so far — this would simplify things and give you “tight integration” with Windows that wasn’t feasible before. It’s too early to tell when the feature will be available, but it’s at least in the cards.

The move isn’t completely surprising. As Calvo notes, the “changes in leadership and culture” in Redmond made this possible. CEO Satya Nadella is interested in spreading Microsoft’s services (such as Azure) to every platform that can use them, rather than insisting on Windows-only solutions like his predecessors. SSH support should make it easier to integrate Microsoft’s technology into environments where Linux has a solid foothold, whether it’s a data center or your home network.

A Good Gardener, a relaxing and intriguing game made for the Ludum Dare 32, has you tending to mysterious plants during a war.

A war is going on in the world. You have become a prisoner who must spend their days in solitude, planting strange seeds for the war effort. You are not told what these plants do or why you are planting them. A supervisor comes to visit you every once in a while, but most days are the same. You receive a package of seeds in this broken building with no roof. You can plant these seeds and water them, then go to bed. 

When the supervisor comes to visit, he talks about your work and how well you are doing. He even harvests the plants, without much comment. As you continue playing, he starts to like you. You can even win a medal for your wartime efforts. Being in such a beautiful, flowering area during the war is somewhat lucky. You have quite the simple and pleasant existence pottering away in the garden. Stick around and find out what these plants are being used for!

Extreme Piloting is what you’d get if an airforce spent all it’s money on weapons and forgot about the engines - chaotic Luftrousers inspired dogfights in which you propel yourself entirely with the recoil of the weaponry.

Gameplay in Extreme Piloting is similar to Luftrousers, but you have no means of engine based propulsion whatsoever.  You do however, have plenty of high powered weaponry that you can use to blast your enemies and propel yourself through the air with their recoil.

You have three different fire types available, Heavy, Medium and Light, each with varying spreads of bullets, power and recoil.  You must use these to keep yourself up in the air and blast your opponents, taking care not to bounce off the edges of the screen (or it temporarily disables your firepower).

Gameplay is tough initially, but once you get to grips with the control scheme, you’ll be capable of some awesome feats of extreme piloting, blasting your way around the screen in a ballet of bullets.  With firepower like this, who needs engines?
