Almost there… [EDIT: *(&!$(^%$!&]

31 Dec / by: M&R / 44 comments /

We’re still madly working to get the N v2.0 public beta out before the end of the year… it’s going to be close, and although we REALLY tried all year to avoid this last-minute panic, sometimes there’s nothing you can do! We had hoped to be done early so that we would have time to […]

Huge apologies!

Oh wow, we just noticed now it’s been 8 months since our last blog post. We are so sorry about that! We’ve had our heads down feverishly working on the N v2.0 update and have been hit with some delays and unanticipated problems, and completely lost track of time. But to be totally honest, part […]

GDC you in San Francisco!

It’s that time of year again, the annual migration of game developers to the Game Developer’s Conference in San Francisco. Our flight was delayed, which is kind of lucky because in our rush to pack we forgot to write a blog post! A couple weeks ago we reached +500 new N levels; initially we were […]

Check Out the Holiday Contesque Highscore Replays!

21 Jan / by: M&R / 15 comments / tags :

We spent some time reviewing the highscore replays and they are very impressive. It really is amazing what skilled players can do, and moreover what they can make look so easy! There’s a real elegance to the replays: they are a carefully choreographed succession of restrained, efficient moves and yet despite that palpable determination and […]

After many frustrating days and sleepless nights, we have for you a small holiday gift: a quick beta test of N v2.0, in holiday contesque form. Yes, that’s right, there’s a new Contesque! (For those of you just joining us, “contesque” is a delightful and non-legally-binding portmanteau of contest + the suffix -esque. We coined […]

Wow, December already. It’s been an incredibly busy year, and time is just flying by. First of all, in case anyone missed it, we’ve started the long overdue process of cleaning up the N v1.4 highscores, and can always use more help. If you know of a highscore that was acquired by cheating, please collect […]

We’re still soldiering away on multiple projects here. Among other things, the next iteration of N. Yes! Finally we’re posting about N. Hooray!!!   There has been a lot of internal discussion about what sorts of things we want to do with it, and beyond the obvious — make it a proper “web 2.0” dealie […]

First: We will talk about N later in this post. Second: The reason for our horrible failure to post in May is probably not as exciting as you might hope: we now have an office. Or, we will once we finish fixing it up and moving in. The past couple weeks have been full of […]
