There may be times when you need to make incremental backups of a website even though you do not have the luxury of shell access or similar technologies.

This is a 3D puzzle game created with the Blender Game Engine in 2008. It was made for the Gray Fossil Site and Nuclear Fuel Services’ Goal Card project. The clients were kind enough to allow us to release the source files for the game, which we are very thankful for. More information about the game, as well as download links to the source files and compiled binaries for Windows, Mac, and Linux can be found on this page.
