This is fucking sweet. How do you handle the rewinding? Also should some info appear on my the remote screen? I have no way of knowing how many volts I've got.

Does it require PS3.0? I can't run it here :|

hm... I only see a television set and hear some music, nothing except pressing ESC works (WinXP 32bit, ATI 2900XT)

@kb, try typing 105

the game and the idea is awesome! execution is also as good.

cool! better download the fixed version from here.

Thykka: the source is already included? accident?

does not work on my pc...
will try later on the notebook

For everyone with troubles running the game: there's some stuff in known_bugs.txt which usually make the game playable (with the expense of eye-candy)

RufUsul, in that case they're supposed to be there. In fact you might be able to compile a working unix version with the source!

Gah! I want to thumb this up for the concept and the teletext interface alone... but the over-zealous use of effects and the rock-hard difficulty curve make me go for a piggy instead.

I hope you do continue development of this, and I hope you make it more accessible

This absolutely fucking rulez! Looking forward to future releases.

Shame it doesn't run without pixel shaders - would lke it if the esc key didn't exit the entire program.

OS X version available at http://thykka.ath.cx/dave/
Should work well on macbook pros, mac pros, and at least newer intel imacs. With macbook on intel mac mini you can make it work by disabling shaders (edit config at dave.app/Contents/Resources/dave.conf)

os x package tested only on my macbook (can't cope with shaders) and friends recent imac (runs ok). Please mail me how the _os_x_ version does or doesn't work. jupet at kirah dot fi

Great idea and realization - apart from the fact that it is pretty unplayable

great execution but it really takes a while before mastering the control. I never had the need to use recording before game over at level 2.. :)

Received a BSoD when I executed it on my PC. Then watched the video. Awesome idea and design!

Incredibly slick.
