I had no idea this was in the works. Sneaky ninjas.
The Indie Royale guys have a new bundle up of NinjaBee games, four with a fifth if you beat the minimum price. I’ve worked on four of these, though, admittedly, only on a phone port for Outpost Kaloki, not the original game. Cloning Clyde was done before I joined the Wahoo/NinjaBee team, as was the original Outpost Kaloki.
Still, I did a few bits of the art for Ancients of Ooga, a fair bit of art for Band of Bugs, and a lot of art for A Kingdom for Keflings. (Oh, and we’re working on more DLC for the sequel, A World of Keflings, as a result of this contest from a little while ago.)
So yeah, go check it out, y’all! It’s hard to beat the price on these. Am I shilling for my company? Yes, yes I am. They are good games, too, and ones I’d recommend as great indie titles anyway. I have a soft spot for Band of Bugs especially, tactical game nerd that I am.
Oh, and speaking of ninjas and hidden secret things, I’ll come back to that “hidden” photo from last post. There’s an art point I want to make with it, but I’ll let it sit for the weekend.

My company’s latest XBox Live game update has finally hit the virtual shelves!
Band of Bugs
It’s been updated with the ability to put your Microsoft XBox avatar in the game as the lead character, and multiplayer is crazy fun with a lot of different avatars.
There’s also a whole new tileset and group of characters in a new storyline (Tales of Kaloki), and since it’s set in space, it changes the game considerably with different tactical attacks and options. It’s almost a whole new game for a whopping $3 in MS points. The multiplayer in that mode is a blast as well.
I don’t just say that because I did a significant amount of art on it either. That’s just a bonus.
Of course, the irony of me promoting a fun game that I’d buy without reserve, while not having a machine to play it on, is not lost on me. At least I can play it on occasion at the office and actually get paid for it. (Well, OK, only while I’m technically testing it, but hey, I’ll take what I can get. It’s a fun game!)
