  • Train Mafia, CPH Edition, Take #2

    In honor of Markus and Jaakko being in town, we decided to run Train Mafia on the CPH Metro for a second time. [singlepic id=313 w=500 h=375 float=] Witch hunt! This time around, the citizens won. But it went right down to the wire – to the final three. Exciting! The second game (on the…

  • Man on Wire

    Hello from beautiful Vancouver, Canada! On the plane ride over here (thank you KLM), I finally caught Man on Wire, a documentary about Philippe Petit’s legendary (and illegal) 1974 stunt where he tightrope-walked between the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers: The film is a must-see! It’s absolutely spell-binding – all the excitement of a good…

  • Simon Nielsen, Best New Nordic Talent!

    “Tillykke” to our resident artist and animator, Simon, for winning this year’s “Best New Nordic Talent” award! Simon won the award for his excellent work on Monkey Donk, one of coolest prototypes from this year’s Nordic Game Jam. Very well deserved, Simon! Simon is also an accomplished VJ, working under the pseudonym Oppe Om Natten…

  • Weekly Music Tip, May 2 2010: Noby Noby Boy OST!

    The Noby Noby Boy OST was finally released to iTunes this past week! Noby Noby Boy was my very favorite “game”  of 2009 – in no small part because of the music. On the surface of things, the game is very lighthearted and chaotic. Indeed, inflicting chaos on tiny digital worlds is the entire point.…

  • Kometen

    Our friend Erik Svedäng just announced his upcoming iPhone game, Kometen: Looks fantastic. And what a classy trailer! I particularly dig the music – apparently by Erik’s collaborator, Niklas Åkerblad.

  • Poto & Cabenga

    Our friends at Honeyslug have released their cute Gamma IV game, Poto & Cabenga. It’s really nice, both the artwork and the gameplay. It was my favorite of all the Gamma games! It was great meeting Richard and Ricky in person at GDC. The duo are also working on a very cool (and ambitious) new…

  • Weekly Music Tip, April 25 2010: Cinematic Orchestra’s LateNightTales

    Cinematic Orchestra’s LateNightTales mix, released just this month, is an absolute must-listen: Both the track selection and the transitions are stellar. How does one seamlessly mix FlyLo, Wayne Henderson, Nick Drake, Burt Bacharach, Bjork, Thom Yorke, St Germain, and Burial? I don’t know, but Cinematic Orchestra manages to pull it off.

  • This is where we get down

    Matt is in town! Here’s his take of Dronning Louises Bro, right near where some of us live: [singlepic id=303 w=500 h=375 float=] (The drawing is from this week, but the photo is from 2008)

  • Smart Kobold

    The ever-formidable Jeff Lait has just released a new game, Smart Kobold. So of course I had to try it! [singlepic id=291 w=500 float=] Jeff, a mathematician/programmer wiz by day, spends some of his free time programming strange “roguelikes” inspired by ancient ASCII games like NetHack. Jeff is perhaps most famous for POWDER, but he’s…

  • Weekly Music Tip, April 18 2010: Charanjit Singh

    The record that has everybody talking – proto-techno time-warp from 1982… from India?!?! If the story behind the record is indeed true, then this must surely be the crate digging discovery of the decade. The record predates the first acid house tracks by half a decade, challenging the standard Western-centric history of electronic music. Still,…
