Braid video game In December , feeling inspired during a trip in Thailand, Blow made a prototype for a time manipulation puzzle platformer game. The demo had crude graphics, but featured the ability of the player to rewind all the objects on screen backwards in time to a previous state. Encouraged by feedback from his peers, Blow worked on the game from about April to about December that year before having the final prototype of his game, titled Braid. He continued work on the game mostly focusing on art and music while polishing some of the design until its release in on Xbox Live Arcade.
Guy Fawkes and Bonfire Night
In , thirteen young men planned to blow up the Houses of Parliament. Among them was Guy Fawkes, Britain's most notorious traitor. After Queen Elizabeth I died in , English Catholics who had been persecuted under her rule had hoped that her successor, James I, would be more tolerant of their religion. James I had, after all, had a Catholic mother. Unfortunately, James did not turn out to be more tolerant than Elizabeth and a number of young men, 13 to be exact, decided that violent action was the answer. A small group took shape, under the leadership of Robert Catesby. Catesby felt that violent action was warranted.
Guy Fawkes was born in in Stonegate, York. He was the second of four children born to Edward Fawkes, a proctor and an advocate of the consistory court at York, [b] and his wife, Edith. As the customary gap between birth and baptism was three days, he was probably born about 13 April.
How I Stopped Worrying and Learned to Love the Fermentation A fair warning my dear readers; this article is either going to be a hit or miss for you. If you're intimately familiar with the benefits of creating a blow-off tube during primary fermentation and how to do so then you may want to skip ahead and check out our first Signature Series brew kit. Inspiration This article was inspired by two friends who have just begun their brewing adventures; one had his airlock pop off while the other asked me how he could prevent such a thing from happening to him. Before I go into the facts I have an humorous personal experience to share. During my first summer as a brewer I decided to come home one weekend from my residence in New York to New Jersey to spend some time with my family.
