I guess this board is one of the official announcements. We also posted on our Facebook page:

Enjoy.

In case anyone is curious I downloaded the first game and it is a 3D frogger game with pretty nice graphics and sound and is quite fun.

Based off some of the questions we're getting in email, we've started a FAQ about the Pi games. The first version is below. Thanks for your feedback everyone and keep spreading the word!

2 Pi Feet Project FAQ – V1.0

How many games is Webfoot porting to the Raspberry Pi?
We have over 100 games that we would like to port to the Pi.

When will more games be released?
We will be releasing several games per week for as long as there is interest. That means we notice people posting the links and downloading the games.

The game doesn't run, what should I do?
It's probably because you need to increase the GPU memory split setting to 256MB run this game. To adjust the memory split setting from the Raspbian desktop, click Menu >Preferences > Raspberry Pi Configuration, select the Performance tab, enter the required memory amount (256) into "GPU Memory:", click OK, and reboot. To adjust the memory split setting from the Raspbian command line, enter "sudo raspi-config", go to "Advanced Options" > "Memory Split", enter 256, select OK, select Finish, and reboot.

Will all the games be free of charge for Raspberry Pi users?
All Pi games are free of charge to download and play. If you wish to make a small donation, there will be a donation button at http://www.WebfootGames.com/pi that will help to fund future ports and new games.

Why are you offering your games for free on the Raspberry Pi?
This is a bit of a personal decision. I felt it was time to give back to the community after a fantastic career. In addition, I've been teaching Computer Science at Lewis University, and as a teacher, I feel a strongly about offering something to the Pi community that will get kids excited about computers and excited about learning.

Can I apply to Lewis University and study video game programming there?
Absolutely. I often talk about programming techniques used in some of our hit games, such as "Dragonball Z: The Legacy of Goku" series and 3D Frog Frenzy. Information about Lewis can be found at http://cs.lewisu.edu

Which Webfoot games will be ported to the Pi?
All of them, except those restricted by licensing. For example, we don't own the license to "My Little Pony", so those games will not be ported as-is.

If you don't own the license, does that mean those games will never be ported to the Pi?
If we don't have licensing rights, but we own the game engine, it's possible we could release either the engine, or a version of the game with new artwork. So it is possible we might release games that are similar, depending on the circumstances. We do have really nice RPG and SPRG engines. We could possibly allow users to create their own art packs. There are possibilities here, but no decisions yet. We are looking to the community for feedback and level of interest.

Which Raspberry Pi hardware is supported?
Both the Raspberry Pi Model B and the Raspberry Pi 2 are supported. The Raspberry Pi Zero is not supported.

Will you ever release any of your engines?
It's highly probable that at some time, we will release some of our engines for educational purposes.

Will you ever release the Webfoot engines documentation?
We are currently working on a textbook that teaches video game programming in C++ using the various Webfoot engines, including some of the tech used in the Dragonball Z games. Stay tuned.

Hi,

Is there controller support for the games?

I will find out what controllers are supported and post back later. Are there any controllers for Pi that users prefer? We can support anything you like. Thanks for the feedback.

Most guys here use Xbox 360 and PS3/PS2 controllers. I have an arcade cabinet which I use an usb interface called "DragonRise Inc. Generic USB Joystick".

It's not obvious where to purchase the Dragonrise Inc. usb controller in the USA. Can someone please post a link? Thanks!

The website at https://mfi.re/download/d0k81983xwi326u ... ion.tar.gz seems to be unavailable. The precise error was:

Error performing TLS handshake: GnuTLS internal error.
Hmmm

It's Mediafire. I just checked and it works from here (I'm in Chicago, IL USA). But that doesn't mean there's not a router down somewhere between you and Mediafire. Also, maybe your ISP blocks them?

We also posted on itch.io:

http://webfootgames.itch.io/alien-invas ... spberry-pi

Maybe this link will work better from your location. Good luck!

Yes, that link worked. Maybe the other site has problems getting across ponds.

Thanks for letting us know that! There might be other people having trouble with the original download links in Europe, so we'll be sure to post everything at http://webfootgames.itch.io/ also.

UPDATES!:

FYI for those across the pond who can't seem to download the main files from Mediafire, there are duplicate files available at:

http://webfootgames.itch.io/

Also, we will soon be posting which controllers are supported, and will be adding support for any controllers the community seems most interested in (links to stores to purchase these controllers would be appreciated so we can test on the same hardware).

The FAQ will be updated again with a few new questions people have been sending us. Thanks for your feedback!

Finally, we will be posting 6 new games this week, for a total of 12 games so far (and many more to come). The links will be posted as soon as the builds are ready.

Hi! I downloaded some of the games and really enjoyed them! It is nice to see a company who is willing to port the games for FREE! :D Looking forward to the new games. Keep up the good work!

p.s. will there be any 2 player games?
