    Playing and developing video games.
  1. Is anyone going to attend California Extreme this weekend? We're going to be exhibiting two of our studio's retro-styled Xbox/PC games (Washington's Wig and Fist Puncher). Anyone attending the show should stop by our table and play some games, talk shop, or just say hi.
  2. That sounds about right. One of the other XBLIG developers was joking with us and said that we would now become "dozenaires" just like all the other XBLIG game developers.
  3. Has anyone been following the Microsoft Dream.Build.Play competition? It's an MS sponsored contest for indie devs making Xbox or Windows Phone games. We submitted our game Fist Puncher and I'm really impressed by some of the other entrants. There are some really cool retro-themed games that will be part of the competition and coming out later this year on Xbox. Obviously I'm plugging my game a little, but there are some amazing looking games that were submitted: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91Zzg-wXyBk&feature=plcp http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vxLIlo5ICyI http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jopRHhEnlVI And, of course, our entry: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQiL83nO0Nw
  4. For anyone that enjoyed The Next Game Boss or likes retro-styled games with dogs wearing wigs, we released Washington's Wig on Xbox for 80 MSP ($1). http://marketplace.x...8550b5d?cid=RSS http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=itDU38hXiCw&feature=youtu.be
  5. That's a brilliant quote! River City Ransom is one of our big influences along with Double Dragon, Streets of Rage, Renegade, etc. It has some modern influence too. I think people will definitely see some Castle Crashers in there. Speaking of River City Ransom, I only learned recently that there were sequels. Have to get my hands on them and give them a try.
  6. For anyone interested in retro brawlers, we're doing a Kickstarter to try to get the final funding for our game Fist Puncher. We're hoping we can get some fans of old school beat 'em ups to give us a hand. Pass the link on if you know anyone who might be interested. Thanks! http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/928099324/fist-puncher-old-school-beat-em-up
  7. Next Game Boss finale time. It's my team (Team Fist Puncher) against Team Mechamagizmo. A wig-wearing canine vs. a carrot bouncing stars. Only in the world of videogames.
  8. Robot Wants Kitty - fun little puzzler. Memohuntress - sort of a find the object adventure game with really nice visuals.
  9. Sorry for the delay, life has me backed into a corner. There are 2 new episodes. Here's episode 4:
  10. Episode 3 (with a twist): http://youtu.be/jf03m4xTqxw
  11. Thanks for watching! That challenge was absurdly intense. I wish the show would have captured more of the stress that each team went through during those nightmarish 3 hours. Going in, only 1 or 2 of the teams had any Unity experience. So for most of us, we were trying to learn Unity on the fly *and* prototype a game. Now add in the fact that we couldn't use the internet, couldn't use cell phones, couldn't use labtops, couldn't use any external content whatsoever, and had cameras and lights in our faces while a big clock counted down, and you have 3 hours of developers pulling out their hair. I have to admit, I was pretty bummed after the challenge that our core mechanic was just barely there and pretty rough around the edges. However, looking back, I'm happy that we were able to stay focused and learn just enough Unity in 3 hours to be able to actually present a working demo. In fact, hats off to all the teams. It's harder than it looks. MK
  12. Episode 2 is up. I haven't watched it yet, but I think I'm going to look kind of silly in this one: http://youtu.be/hknam3TLnPc
  13. It's too late! I already lost it! Seriously though, the challenge in the next episode is intense. Stay tuned.
  14. moycon: I *think" there are going to be 6 episodes, but I'm not exactly sure. Each one is put up Tuesday at noon Pacific time. ComputerSpaceFan: I think it was just the way they edited it. Both Daemon and Naomi seemed pretty enthusiastic about and involved with the show. We didn't get to talk to them too much (since we were contestants and they were judges... I guess they didn't want us to be tempted to slip a 20 into Daemon's pocket to try to sway his vote), but overall they both seemed like pretty cool down-to-earth people. And there was a Tron machine in the cafeteria?! They only had Tekken and NFL Blitz up and running when I was there. Dang!
