On the road agaiN…

So it’s that time of year again, the time of year where we leave the cold, frozen north to venture to the hopefully less cold San Francisco, California, for the Game Developer’s Conference. This yearly pilgrimage is always useful — we get to talk to other game developers we rarely see, check out their new […]

Happy N Year

So here we are in 2011, can you believe it? 2010 went by so fast. It’s going to be a great year, we can feel it. Just after releasing N Arcade Special Edition and feeling very burnt out, we went to Tokyo to try to get some inspiration and motivation to get to work on […]

N Arcade: Special Edition

27 Sep / by: M&R / 36 comments / tags :

The extended blog silence (3 months?! that may be a record, even for us. Here’s hoping we never break it!) should not be taken as a sign of inactivity, but rather intense activity leaving (sadly) no time to blog. A quick recap:   June When we left off in June we were porting the simulation […]

Thank you for helping us help you help us all.

Well, the polls are closed and N is out 🙁 We are disappointed, but are happy to lose to a game that people feel so passionate about — that is, simply, a beautiful thing. Congrats, Torchlight, and good luck to all the games in the next bracket. Thanks to DIYGamer for holding a fun contest, […]

As seen on the Major Nelson blog, N+ is one of the many games featured in the XBLA “inventory blowout” sale, from June 16-22. Yes, that is correct: now is your chance to pick up the best version of N+ (according to us anyway) for only 400 Microsoft Currency Units! That’s 5 buckazoids if you’re […]

N: Can you believe it’s still breaking new ground? Booyah! Also, depressing news from the N+ DS/PSP world.

Blogathon Part 0: The Blogining of the End (and of the Horrible Puns)

07 Sep / by: M&R / 8 comments /

It was pointed out in the comments that we average a paltry 5 blog posts a year at this rate. That is beyond terrible and we apologize wholeheartedly. It seems like on every blog post we earnestly promise to post more often, and then two months go by and we still haven’t found the time. […]

Robotology: A Bunch of Circles and Lines (..and N+: a Tattoo!)

22 Apr / by: M&R / 28 comments /

First of all, we have a few new winners for Contesque #3, at long last. The first win goes out to Duncan, who sent us a whole bunch of drawings of N+ costumes. We chose the one we thought was the most fun 🙂 Duncan’s Ninja Mask And next, we have to share what may […]

Robotology: Triage Part 3, Stable Condition..?

10 Mar / by: M&R / 16 comments /

To start, a reminder that today is the last day to vote in the XBLA Awards! And now for the third and final chapter in the continuing saga of what’s up with Robotology lately: things that are working well (but may still need some tweaking/adjustments as we go). Ironically — or perhaps not technically […]
