  • CALCCIV - Port of Civilization for the TI-84+ CE: BattyBest has shared with us their new turn-based strategy game that they are working on for the CE! This game is all about building up a city/empire, so if that's your type of thing, be sure to show them some support.
  • Celtic BASIC library for the CE: RoccoLox Programs has added several new commands to his BASIC library for the CE, such as commands to draw circles, draw scaled sprites, and more. This will be incredibly useful to all of you programmers.
  • The Color of Babel: New Cemetech member RedSpacePanda has released a fun new program for the CE which can show you a nearly infinite amount of unique combinations of pixels, effectively allowing it to predict the future, show you winning lottery numbers, and uh... it's now telling me that you MUST go try it for yourself? Well I'd definitely follow it's instructions!
  • DuckHunt Development [C]: This month, Alvajoy123 has developed the clay-shooting gamemode more, and added a feature to make ducks fly away if you don't shoot for a while. It's remarkable how similar this looks to the original game, and we can't wait to see a release!
