OK, so it’s not quite alliterative, or a proper tribute to Dorothy’s line, but it’ll do.
Just a few things of interest to note today.
One, some of my NinjaBee coworkers are out at PAX today, revealing our latest game, Nutjitsu! I don’t have a lot to show for it just yet, but when we do the non-PAX announcement, I’ll be sure to point to it as well. I didn’t get to work on this one, but it’s looking pretty good.
Two, one that I did work on, A World of Keflings, is now available for Windows 8, and we’ll have it out for the WiiU later this year! It’s a little different, controlling the game via the touch screen of a tablet computer, but it’s still the great core game that I’ve had the privilege of working on for a few years now.
Three, there’s this gem from The Rampant Coyote (who worked at Wahoo before my time here, so hey, there’s the common thread), addressing the recent interview with Richard Garriott that has some game devs a bit… irked. For good reason, as it happens. He makes some good points, but man… the guy has an amazing ego.
Anywho, I had hoped to have my steampunk/gearpunk poker deck done by now, but tech issues and scheduling conflicts mean I still have 6 face cards to do. It’s getting there, though, and it’s fun to see it come together.

This is what the NinjaBee booth looks like out on the PAX floor. Stop by if you’re in the neighborhood!
