Week 209

As you may have noticed, Alper, Simon and myself have been run­ning a tiny app project on the side. It’s called Cup­pings and it helps you find good cof­fee spots near you. This project grew out of a shared pas­sion for cof­fee and actu­al­ly start­ed out as an idea for a cof­fee tast­ing diary app […]

Week 196

Last week, Alper spent time lead­ing devel­op­ment on Vic­to­ry Boo­gie Woo­gie and Rip­ple Effect while I lead the design. For the for­mer, we worked on the final update which should con­sid­er­ably improve the home­page. It’s always a chal­lenge to design ahead of actu­al con­tent. Now that the game has been run­ning for some time we […]

Week 194

Last week was most­ly us qui­et­ly work­ing away on our cur­rent projects, with some extracuric­u­lar activ­i­ties in between. Here’s what hap­pened: Vic­to­ry Boo­gie Woo­gie (SAKE) We shipped some new fea­tures to Vic­to­ry Boo­gie Woo­gie, most notably a swanky pre­view mode for play­ers and writ­ers and lim­it­ed markup capa­bil­i­ties for the lat­ter. Not exact­ly rock­et sci­ence […]

Week 190

Hav­ing launched Vic­to­ry Boo­gie Woo­gie just before the week­end it’s only nat­ur­al we had to do a few quick fix­es on Mon­day, the first prop­er day of the game. I sat down with Niels to review his nar­ra­tive design for KAIGARA. He’s doing a great job of adding “just enough” theme to what is oth­er­wise […]

Introducing Victory Boogie Woogie

We’ve been writ­ing about project SAKE here since June last year. A while back it was unveiled to be (Your Dai­ly) Vic­to­ry Boo­gie Woo­gie, an online col­lab­o­ra­tive writ­ing game we’ve made togeth­er with De Gids. Next week on Mon­day, the game will start. So I thought I’d take the time to tell you a bit […]

Week 188

Belat­ed wee­knotes! I blame the long East­er week­end, and the switch to day­light sav­ing time. Let’s keep it short shall we? Alper spent most of the week hack­ing away at KAIGARA, which is shap­ing up nice­ly. He also put some fin­ish­ing touch­es on SAKE, which is going to kick off next week! Sign up for […]

Week 187

On Mon­day Kars pre­sent­ed the final HIRAME con­cept at the client. Aside from some minor tweaks need­ed on the brand­ing front it was received well. We’re hop­ing this will turn into a full-on pro­duc­tion project like KAIGARA next —at which point we’ll prob­a­bly be able to reveal its client— but for now we’ll have to […]

Week 186

As is the nat­ur­al rhythm of things, we’ve been wrap­ping up a num­ber of projects last week, while oth­ers are pick­ing up steam. On the wrap­ping-up front, I worked with Her­man on prepar­ing the slide deck for HIRAME’s final deliv­ery. We put in some sug­ges­tions for a visu­al style, a prop­er game title, a premise—that […]

Week 185

We’re host­ing a run of Code 4 these weeks which is prov­ing to be stim­u­lat­ing. All in all we’re rather hap­py how well the project is hold­ing up. For a two year old code­base, it doesn’t show much vis­i­ble signs of aging at all. For KAIGARA we got the team filled out accord­ing to our […]

Week 184

Alper was asked to con­tribute some words on ‘gam­i­fi­ca­tion’ to TNW Mag­a­zine, which appeared the begin­ning of this week. With some amuse­ment we took note of the oth­er con­trib­u­tors to this piece. Let’s just say a diverse range of per­spec­tives is cov­ered. On Mon­day Alper and I worked on adapt­ing Code 4 for play with­in […]
