Happy Valentine’s Day! As you may know, we’re fans of Valentine’s Day around here, because it’s another opportunity to let people know how much we appreciate them — friends, family, colleagues and players alike. Quite frankly, these days, we think everyone could use a little more love in their lives, as we all desperately try to figure out a way forward through this harsh and unforgiving world. Here’s a brief history of our valentines:
And what we had to say about them:
As game developers, we are very much indebted to the game development community for the knowledge and support that is consistently and generously shared. As gamers, we receive immense enjoyment from the multitude of games which we play each year, and are able to get a better sense of what we like about games, which helps us with future projects. As game creators, we really appreciate the time, energy and enthusiasm other gamers put into our work — that boosts our motivation to keep working.
Quite simply, we are always looking for ways to give back, or to tell people about how awesome we think they are, and how much we appreciate who they are and what they do. Making valentines is a fun and unusual way to do this, which is right up our alley.
And so, dear reader, know this: we think you rock. Thanks for being you.
It’s still true! So this year, we’ve got a fun and tasty Valentine for you — in the PC/Mac version of N++, you’ll find two delicious new colour schemes you get to use freely for all of February: Chococherry (Valentine’s-themed) and Birthday Cake (’cause hey, maybe it’s your birthday, and everyone is so focused on Valentine’s Day that they forget. Not us though, we’ve got your back!). After February, these will be unlockable the usual way, and they definitely will make their way to PS4 as well, as soon as we can get them there.
We will have more exciting news for you soon, so stay tuned — but in the meantime, please tell someone how genuinely special they are to you.
p.s. wondering about the name of this blog post? Well it’s simple — we’ve titled blog posts “Happy Valentines Day” three times over the years, and we wanted to change things up a bit, Canadian-style 😉
