Pop+ Solo gets 7/10 from

Monday, August 24th, 2009

This weekend we were also reviewed by German Nintendo site who gave Pop a 7/10 and recommend it very highly. Read on for the full review (note to English speakers this review is in German). You can also read the original article here.

Zum Start von Nintendos Downloadservice auf der Wii im Mai des letzten Jahres erschienen nicht mehr als eine Hand voll Titel. Darunter war beispielsweise der „Final Fantasy“-Ableger „My Life as a King“, aber auch das außergewöhnliche „LostWinds“. Diesen beiden Titeln wurde folglich am meisten Aufmerksamkeit in den Medien gewidmet, denn das eine zeugte durch den großen Namen und das andere durch die außergewöhnliche Steuerung und dem Spielprinzip von Qualität. Etwas untergangen ist in den Folgewochen das süchtig-machende „Pop“, das mit „Pop+ Solo“ nun auch eine DSiWare-Umsetzung spendiert bekommen hat. Ob das Spiel auch auf dem Handheld Spaß macht, werdet ihr nun erfahren. (more…)

Pop+ Solo scores 9/10 from NintendoLife!

Monday, August 24th, 2009

Nintendolife recently reviewed Pop+ Solo and gave us an amazing 9/10. Below is the full review or you can read it on NintendoLife here (and add your comments to the already massive amount). Thanks again to NintendoLife for all the great work they have put in to support us and Pop+ Solo.

Who would have thought that popping bubbles could be so much fun?

For the uninitiated, Pop Plus: Solo is an enhanced remake of the original game, Pop, released on the WiiWare service last year. The game garnered a reasonable amount of popularity and was widely praised for its simple yet addictive and eloquently executed gameplay. Over a year later the game has been rereleased on DSiWare with new additions and of course touch screen control. (more…)

Jye Smith (@jyesmith) interviewed me last week for his blog on digital media. The following is the full interview. If you would like to read the original please check it out here.


Ever wanted to make games for a living?

I only met Nic this year, and already I can tell what a brilliant man he is.  Not only is he the CEO of his games company, but he’s also incredible strategic about life and work. A really stand out for A Digital Perspective.

What do you do?

I am the Creative Director and CEO of a new games company based in Sydney. My typical day sees me waking at about 7, playing some World of Warcraft until about 8:30 at my desk and starting work between 8:30 and 9am. As we are still quite small my day to day work involves pretty much all aspects of our business such as designing our new games, liaising with media contacts to generate good press and having meetings with our various team members to see how the projects are going.

Interview with Vortex of Tech

Thursday, July 30th, 2009

The Votex of Tech interviewed us for his blog the other day (which you can read here). Below is the full interview.

Q – I understand that “myLifeCollected” is a collection of applications designed for DSiWare. What situations do you think a myLifeCollected app will enhance?

With myLifeCollected we are trying to create software which will almy notebooklow Nintendo DSi owners to simplify and enhance their lives. One great example of this is myNotebook which will allow them to always have a way to jot down thoughts, notes, email addresses etc while on the move. Instead of carrying a pen, paper and Nintendo DSi they just need a DSi!

Future applications in this series will also provide fun, time saving ways of making your life more simple on the move.


Site Upate

Tuesday, July 21st, 2009

Just a quick post to say that we have updated the look and feel of the site today. It was done in part to make better use of the space as a lot of our text and box-outs were really big. We hope you like the new look.

If you look hard you might spot our new project too 😉

Homophobia and online games

Saturday, July 11th, 2009

Kotaku today put up an interesting post regarding homosexuality in games. Seeing as I am a gay man and also part of the games industry I thought I should put up some of my thoughts in the comments section. My comment turned out to be quite long so I though I should also post it here for those who are interested.

The original Kotaku article is here. Read on for my thoughts on the subject.
