UMaine debuting ocean simulator to test sea-bound tech
ORONO — Builders of everything from cruise ships and ports to oil rigs offshore wind turbines are tasked with the same question — will their work will be strong enough to stand up to the sea?
A miniature indoor ocean at the University of Maine could make for a lot less guessing.

Eagre Games showcases ‘ZED’ on Oculus Rift
ORONO – Game Studio Eagre Games showcased their current project “ZED” both at the BanGORE Fest in Bangor on Oct. 30 and 31 and at the office located at the Target Technologies Center in Orono using the Oculus Rift, a virtual reality headset that allows you to experience the game as if you were actually inside it.
Time Waster - ‘Where is Cat’
This is a charming puzzle game that was developed by children.
As you might expect, you have to find the cat. Once you have done that in several screens, you have to find other things for the cat: dishes, cups, cupcakes. All of the items you subsequently find were in those original rooms when you found the cat the first time, but you may have overlooked them.

Time Waster - ‘Swords and Souls’
“Swords and Souls” is a fun fighting game from Armor Games. You design your “soul” (your character) and then fight in the arena to earn enough soul credits to get out (and buy sweet gear, design your house and improve your training studio). Your avatar fights various baddies from town guards to goblins in the arena. This is your main source of income – when you beat the boss at the end of each battle, you get a chest filled with experience, potions, spells and more.
One of the best features is the training studio. This has five mini-games that level you up, give you a chance to win four-leaf-clovers, and are actually fun. As you get better, you can take on bigger baddies and unlock new skills and talents that you can invest points in. The mini-games are fun and challenging. Some of the combos require a high level of skill on the part of the player – more than you’ll typically use in the arena, so it’s nice to have the challenge without feeling like a giant loser.
