In Beta!

I've just hit Beta with the new casual game. If you haven't signed up for the Beta yet (you would have received an invite if you subscribed to the Casual Games Arcade newsletter) don't worry... depending on the initial test results I may make an open call on my blog here.

As for the name and details of the game? Stay tuned for more information in the next few weeks!

Upcoming Talks

I've got a busy month coming up.

I'll be speaking at the GO3 conference in Perth, Australia - talking about how Pandemic Studios localized Destroy All Humans! for the Japanese market (and debuted at number 2 in the PS2 charts too boot!). This talk is being co-authored by Gary Ireland, the localization producer. That's on the 31st of March - check out the official GO3 site for more information.

Then, the following Tuesday on the 3rd of April I'll be doing a talk at the QUT Kelvin Grove campus in Brisbane as part of their Game On! series. I'll be discussing how now is a great time for independent developers. Check out here for more details.

Oh, and I have a wedding to attend in between. It's gonna be a crazy few days!

Signed, Sealed and Soon To Be Delivered

I'm just about to hit Beta and I've already signed my latest casual game!

That's such a nice feeling . The company distributing it does an awesome job so the title will have great penetration to players. I'll post more info about the game once it's about to ship.
