Latest Gaming News and Developer Blog Posts
So... the last few days I've been pondering creating a new game. Since the I29 release of TWTPB I've neither had the time nor the inspiration to start up a new project but now I feel the creative winds blowing once more.
Painting in very broad strokes it will be a platformer/rpg mash, with highly stylized "procedural" graphics (trying to repeat my "programmer should be able to do all the graphics" lesson from TWTPB). You'll probably play a robot in third person view and you'll be able to augment yourself with different abilities/weapons etc.
However I've got a lot going on before I can really start this one off; I30 of TWTPB, new game release, a new hUb update... *phew*
Right now I'm working out my lore and vision of the game and I'm hoping to find some time to make an 8h development crunch to get things started.
And I probably should read our game post mortems
I'll keep you posted on any ideas or progress!

We have just rolled out our Twitter integration module. Now community members can hook up their Spell of Play accounts with their Twitter accounts using the Spell of Play Game Twtr application.
The general idea is to let our community members easily supply their gaming profile here at Spell of Play with information from their Twitter profile. There will also be options to tweet your activity in the community and the games you play. A great way to let your friends know what you are doing!
Feel free to suggest features, ask for help, or anything else in our twitter forum where there also is a simple guide on how to set up your connection.
And the winner of the Got a Got a Blog? - Win a Game! blogging contest is......
A personal view on games with a focus on independent games. There is a big selection of reviews in different categories and also the opportunity to comment. I really like Uhfgood's reviews, they are filled with personal references and quite fun to read. To top it off Uhfgood review games you have seldom heard of and would have a hard time to find yourself, including: To Win The Peanut Butter
Uhfgood will be receiving the free game and also be announced in the upcoming newsletter!
Thanks to all that participated.
