Losing the first version of this post due to webhosting problems kind of sucked.. it was looooong! So, let’s see.. what have we been up to? The lost post concerned all of the stuff we’ve added to the simulator; the two big-ticket items are conveyor-belts and moving platforms — both physics-driven, obviously. We actually ended […]

As you may know, the second (of three) N+ expansion packs was released yesterday.

Technical Difficulties…

05 Sep / by: M&R / 3 comments /

Sorry about that, everyone, it appears our webhost is still having some technical difficulties.

Because of the idiotic downtime, we will be extending the contesque for one day, and adding some new prizes to the […]

Belated News Flash!!

01 Sep / by: M&R / 11 comments /

Our site (and this blog) were both down for about a week thanks to some stupid problem at our webhost; of course this happened during a week containing not one but two big announcements. The first is: N+ is out on DS/PSP!! It came out last Tuesday (the 26th); we haven’t heard how it’s doing […]

Originally posted by M&R | August 9, 2008 Finally a Robotology post! We put this off again and again, as there’s so much backlog that we didn’t quite know where to begin, but enough is enough — let’s just start with what we’ve been doing lately, and hopefully we won’t miss anything too important. This […]

Originally posted by M&R | July 23, 2008 The first N+ Downloadable Levelpack releases today (it’s up right now!), which is really exciting. We tried to make everyone happy: there are 150 “easier” Singleplayer levels, which should ease the pain of those who have found N+ too difficult, and 50 Co-op Multiplayer levels, which should […]
