Brand New Year

Hurrah – we survived another holiday season. No, not holiday season, that’s a bit too P.C. Christmas damn it! We survived another Christmas. It doesn’t just have to be for the Christians. It’s a holiday all about giving, receiving, and generally keeping the happy little consumer driven market afloat for another year. But I’m certainly not going to complain, as I came out of it with Super Mario Galaxy, Metroid 3 and Zelda – enough to keep me going for quite a while.

Regardless of how much Christmas is about buying of things these days, its still nice to see family, share a little happiness, and generally over-indulge a little. But once it (and the inevitable drinking too much on Hogmanay) are out of the way, I’m happy just to get back to some sort of routine. The new work that we were supposed to start before the holidays has finally kicked off, and we can get stuck in and get some solid stuff produced.

Work on our own technology has continued apace over the holidays though, and we’ve romped through the preliminary work we were doing to test out our engine. We’ll have to see how things balance out with external contracts, but I’m hopeful we won’t have to shelve our own work entirely, and can continue on prototyping our little game ideas to see what’s fun and where we can go with them.
