Mad props to Quarter to Three (one of my most favorite websites) where I found two awesome links.

The first, a very interesting interview with the creator of Tetris, Alexey Pajitnov in the LA Times. I think most of us have played Tetris at one time or another so I think just about everyone will be interested in this interview.

The other, a royalty calculator at If you ever wanted to know how little you’d make in royalties as a game designer, this is the place to go.

This last little thing is not from Quarter to Three. CNN is reporting that big-name companies are creating online games to foster brand-name recognition. Apparently its not creating a lot of traffic but its a novel idea nonetheless. Worthy of a read if nothing else.
