Engare review: The geometry of Islamic art becomes a treasure of a game

Ars Technica - 1 hour 4 min ago

Your first-blush impression of new video game Engare, perhaps more than any other arty "indie" game in recent memory, will likely boil down to what you think about video games in general.

If you're looking for something to blow the industry's tropes out of the water, then Engare should skyrocket to the top of any list you're making. It's a clever, deceptively simple, and beautiful rumination on geometry and Islamic art-making traditions. Try attaching a generic, smoldering white-man box cover onto that concept.

If you're a well-versed "gamer," on the other hand, Engare may not strike you so intensely at first. At its core, it's a spirograph art game with a series of relatively simple puzzles, and it comes with a freeform art toy that unlocks its puzzles' tools to make whatever patterns you please. The puzzles and the art tools, separately, are straightforward.

DOJ changes “gag order” policy, Microsoft to drop lawsuit

The Department of Justice has recently changed its own policy, saying it would now halt the standard never-ending gag orders that companies are faced with when they receive legal demands to handover user data.

In addition, the new three-page memo dated October 19, written by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, allows companies to ever tell customers that their data has been surrendered in most cases.

In April 2016, Microsoft sued the DOJ, asking a judge to declare unconstitutional the specific portion of federal law that deals with delayed notice, known as 18 USC 2705(b). Numerous large tech companies have sided with Microsoft in this case, including Apple, Google, Dropbox, Amazon, and Salesforce, among others.

Newegg, the well-known online electronics retailer and slayer of patent trolls, has been sued in federal court in Los Angeles by several major Korean banks.

The banks, which include Industrial Bank of Korea, Nonghyup Bank, Keb Hana Bank and Kookmin Bank, allege that Newegg and ASI Corporation pursued fraudulent deals with Moneual.

As Gizmodo noted, the Korean electronics manufacturer sold home theater PCs and cheap robotic vacuum cleaners, among other products. In 2015, Moneual’s then-CEO Park Hong-seok, was convicted by the Seoul Central District Court of fraud, and was sentenced to 23 years in prison, and was ordered to forfeit over $31 million in ill-gotten gains.
