New Orleans Rocks

I just got back from a nice trip to New Orleans. Awesome city for adults to visit!

Post Office Blues

Instead of sending the three copies of Arrietty to our contest winners, the company is sending them to me! Ugh! Now I have to deal with all the packing and shipping stuff.


(Translation: Prizes may take longer to arrive than normal)

Woohoo! Alpha Done!

The alpha version of my Monster game is done!!

It'll take about 10 minutes to play from beginning to end. It finishes on a cliffhanger to give you all a taste.

I'm thinking about whether to release it in alpha or spend some time and add music/sound and a couple tweaks.

Avatars Working Again

Every problem is an opportunity in a bad disguise.

Avatars were broken and you all really wanted PNG capabilities

So we took the opportunity to re-write our image uploading code to version 2.0

It's now handling avatar uploads. If your avatar is appearing broken on pages where it's super small, re-upload it and it should work fine. (Let us know in comments here if not.)

The next step is to let the new image uploading code work its magic on submissions. This will let you upload PNG files.

Let the tedious work/testing begin!

Also, Psychonauts is pretty rad. The first screen you see shocked me because it's just like Super Mario Galaxy.
