I know the person who runs that site. Well, I've met wifey. It's very good. If not essential for day to day tea and biscuit consumption.

He is a programmer and part of a company called Epic Megagames, a company responsible for the creation & distribution of games such as One Must Fall 2097, Kiloblaster, Fire Fight and Castle of the Winds for those who were familiar with the old school 90s titles. Fast forward to the late nineties/today and he and Epic are working on the Unreal first person shooter series



..or, at least, the person at the time was ubblol
