This is the official Metanet Software development blog. Hooray!! You can expect to see a chronicling of the development of the game we’re currently working on, Robotology, as well as some details on other projects, plus a whole bunch of randomness, too. We’ll probably “review” games we like and don’t like, and comment on who […]
