Happy Valentines Day!
As always, we have made valentines — here’s the web version of Metanet’s 2013 Valentine (shows front and back):
The printed versions come in two flavours, and we’ll be distributing them over the next month or two. So if you see us, please come say hi and grab one!
Why Valentines? Here’s what we wrote last year; it’s still true:
We started making corporate valentines so we could more easily express to others that we really appreciate and love what they do. We wanted to reinforce the need to support each other, as we are all part of a dynamic and interconnected community, and to counteract some of the negative undercurrent that inevitably exists in such groups. Also, if corporations really are people, it’s only fair that they observe the same social niceties as human people! 😉 These happy little cards mean: you are either doing some pretty cool stuff or are a pretty cool person, or both, and we think that is awesome.
Things are still progressing with the N v2.0 beta — we should have another update for you all to test as soon as a couple kinks get worked out with saving/loading levels. Also, the next beta will be the first one with the new level editor… can’t wait to find all the bugs in that! 🙂 Look for that soon.
In semi-related news, we have another project which was supposed to start a month ago, however we’ve been dragging our feet on starting it since we wanted to get v2.0 finished first. At this point we really have to start working on the new thing, so work on v2.0 will be moved to “the backburner” (aka weekends). There isn’t too much left to do though, and our plan is to have it completed in the next month or two. Also, we can’t tell you about the new project yet because nothing has been signed, but we can’t wait to tell you all about it as soon as everything is official!
Finally, System Shock 2 is being re-released today over at GOG! It is a great game, one of our all-time favourites, and you should all play it.
