A link to the past week
You know it’s been a long week when you ask your co-worker what day it isand they respond with ‘Friday, but the more important question is where are your pants?’ Let us allow our minds to mellow out with some links, and our pants to be found in the meantime.
A talk about how juicy (Yes, it’s a real term) game design can greatly improve your game. It has set many game design forums ablaze with conversation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fy0aCDmgnxg

The Humble Indie Bundle has an amazing selection of games that you can name any price, purchase, and enjoy. If that very idea wasn’t enough, you can point toward how the money is distributed between developer, charity, and the site itself. This series bundles together LIMBO, Pyschonauts, Amenisa: The Dark Descent, Super Brothers: Sword and Sworcery EP, and lastly if you donate over the average you get Bastion! Also, you get the soundtracks for all of these games, for free. Seriously, why you are even thinking about this? http://www.humblebundle.com/
Lastly, we will be gluing our eyes to all news sources for the next week. Looking for any information about the latest titles and industry news coming out of the carnival that is the Electronic Entertainment Expo (aka E3).
Have a great weekend!
