Look Who’s Back

In a week that’s proving crushingly triumphant for predators whose first name begins with ‘D’, Derrick the Deathfin is KickStartering his way to mobile courtesy of the amazing work of Ronzo!

Unlike his lettersake in the United States, Derrick is more of a traditional predator of the non-sexual variety, choosing instead to harass paper fish with a view to eating them.

Derrick would also like it to be made known that his creator was born in the US and loves the country very much & both of them hope that together we can all find a new way to address the worlds problems without the need to resort to hatred, sexism, racism and bigotry. Derrick notes with sadness that similar hatefulness has recently increased in his creator’s country of residence, and indeed is rising in most European waters too.

Derrick is reminded of the anger he used to harbour for dolphins as a teenager, blaming them for all the problems he faced as a young orphan shark, when really the roots of his distress were caused by humanoid greed & massive disparities in humanoid wealth. Derrick would like to make clear that those days are behind him now, but there may be a lesson in there for all of us.

Erm, so Derrick for Mobile has launched on KickStarter! Give generously if you feel that way inclined, there are loads of ace rewards too!

2016: The Year Of Cognitively Overloaded Contentment!


DDD_logo_symbol_purple


That is the likely state induced by driving lots of cars around lots of tracks at the same time.

This year will see the release of Drive!Drive!Drive!, or D!³ for those of you too lazy to compute the correct nomenclature.

D!³ is coming along really nicely, I’m very busy/happy with it, and it feels like it’s shaping up to be a pretty amazing game!

Yes, that opinion is completely unbiased.

So much love for the new year to you all & stay tuned!

Choice! Choice! Choice!

Imagine you are a semi-professional fisherman by trade. In 2009 you have a moderate amount of success with a pretty niche but thoroughly flavoursome new kind of halibut which you trawl up. Said halibut receives a good deal of praise from the fishing community & ends up winning a prestigious Independent Gregarious Fishing award in 2010.

Emboldened by the initial success of the niche halibut find & believing your fish-related trajectory to be eternally pointed skyward you spend the following 2 years catching dopy looking sharks, which ends up being slightly more successful commercially than the halibut that started your fishing career but garnered less attention in the specialist press for whatever reason that might be I guess they have their own agendas/prejudices to follow & who am I to criticise?

Thereafter you spend 6 months trying to get a StickKarter campaign off the ground to fund to a sequel to the original ground breaking halibut find that stickkarted your whole career, but to no avail.

The following year involves a lot of lonely contemplation on the open seas, considering what kind of angling venture to pursue next.

Eventually you decide on an entirely fresh strategy of trying to catch multiple fish at the same time then stacking them up in a kind of tower thing & hope people understand what the hell is going on & enjoy it a bit. Eventually you take this new concept to the Gregarious Diving Conference off the coast of San Francisco to try to find some people who are prepared to go on a long fishing trip with you to see if it works out & also to pay for the privilidge. At the event you stay with your best friends in the angling world but spend the entire time hawking your simultaneous fishing idea to people other than them in the hope of finding an aquatic investor for your project.

Imagine your surprise & delight, then, when upon sailing home from California your friends get in touch & tell you they – themselves! – want to help you to bring your simultaneous triple fish stacking idea to the unsuspecting general public!

‘The best British musical since Billy Elliot’ – Mark Shenton, The Stage




New game alert! It’s called Drive!Drive!Drive! & it’s a driving game about racing multiple tracks at the same time.

Loads – well, a couple – more details are available on the official site:

http://drive-drive-drive.com

I hope you like it – you’d be crazy not too.

That said if you are crazy please stick around anyway I think we may have something in common.

The reaction from everyone thus far has been incredible – whoop!

Oh and did I mention that the game music is by the amazingly talented state-of-the art synth/prog/post-rock band ZOMBI?!?

a year without Limits

1500x500

happy moderately belated new year!

my new years resolution was to resist the temptation to warble on like a hummingbird with a speech impediment in blog posts, so this will be short. in fact it could’ve been even shorter without that last unnecessary sentence. or indeed that one.

anyway it suffices to say that the racing game formerly known as Limit is no longer known as Limit but – excitingly! – is set to be announced within the next few weeks.

in fact i am beavering away on it right now like a primarily nocturnal semi-aquatic rodent constructing a dam.

so keep your eyes peeled and your satsumas likewise!
