Week 309–310

It’s been a while since we fell off the wee­knotes horse, but here we are. So let’s get down to it. In week 309 we reviewed Q2’s OKRs, and dis­cussed our plans for the future. Let me tell you, it isn’t easy being a bou­tique play­ful design agency. But we’re sol­dier­ing on. The big project […]

Week 308

Lots of work on KOKORO this week. We fin­ished the first pro­to­type and playtest­ed it with a bunch of teenagers. Received plen­ty of help­ful feed­back. We need to do a prop­er eval­u­a­tion but my first impres­sion is that our deci­sion to struc­ture the prod­uct around a con­ver­sa­tion­al UI has been val­i­dat­ed. For the remain­ing projects […]

Week 307

Last week Kars was on some­thing of a road show trav­el­ing the length of the Nether­lands for projects old and new. At the same time I was in the stu­dio work­ing with tech­nol­o­gy. Kars went to Tilburg to pitch suc­cess­ful­ly for fur­ther fund­ing on SHIJIMI. Now that that cycle is closed we can move for­ward […]

Week 306

At the start of this week, we looked back on the playtest of project SHACHI’s sec­ond beta ver­sion. I went over to the client to dis­cuss the out­comes, and the whole team col­lab­o­rat­ed on a plan for the next sprint. Mean­while Alper took a moment to update the project finan­cials. More plan­ning hap­pened on KOKORO. […]

Week 305

I was in the Nether­lands all of last week for some joint work with Kars. I hope to be sta­tion­ary in Berlin for a bit now since all the back and forth does get a bit tir­ing and we have lots of stu­dio work to chew on ahead of us. Kars gave a demo of […]

Week 304

Yes, we work hard. But we man­age to enjoy our­selves as well, as you can tell from the nice pho­to above tak­en by Tim dur­ing a rare occa­sion: All of project SHACHI’s team phys­i­cal­ly cop­re­sent in our Utrecht stu­dio. Alper was in NL to run project KOKO­RO’s first work­shop togeth­er with me. We spent a […]

Week 303

Last week Kars talked with the Air­borne Muse­um about the upcom­ing playtest for SHACHI and also demoed our progress to the client. We are plan­ning a minor pol­ish sprint while we wait for that playtest. Kars also attend­ed the Hack­ing Habi­tat life-hack marathon about debt and facil­i­tat­ed a ses­sion of Play­ing with Rules for a […]

Week 302

I returned from a long hol­i­day in South-East Asia to find the busi­ness hum­ming along nice­ly thanks to Alper’s capa­ble stew­ard­ship. I’ve men­tioned this before, but the fact that all of our work lives in Asana makes it super easy for me to catch up on things and pick up where I left off. I […]

Week 301

Last week I processed the last of the media atten­tion for Bycatch. We now have a fair­ly hand­some list of praise in var­i­ous lan­guages at the top of the page (check it out!) with Kotaku, Killscreen, Deutsch­landra­dio Kul­tur, WIRED, NOS and Bright. We might add one or two more to that but with that it’s […]

Week 300

Last week we were most­ly con­cerned with cap­tur­ing the press atten­tion the launch of Bycatch net­ted us. You can see most of the atten­tion post­ed over at the offi­cial web­site but we were hap­py to read things writ­ten on WIRED, Kotaku, NOS, Con­trol-Online among oth­er places. Not to men­tion the stuff still in var­i­ous pipelines. […]
