Monday Musings

Ahh…another Monday, another funday. Time for some random thoughts–

The life in a startup has it’s ups and downs.  Today was one of the ups.  Go us!

Reading about the backlash for small indie devs regarding iPad3’s retina display—seemingly beneficial for everyone.  Except 2D devs.  Thank goodness we made the decision to deploy all art in vector and 3D.

I’ve been following random blogs and one of my favorite subjects is the modern workspace.  This is one of my favorite posts.  Very cool, and something cool to work towards.  A creative space = creative people!

SXSW traffic is turning into a nightmare.  But the energy in the city is high and palpable.

More and more folks are starting to call GDC a waste of time.  Good thing we’re so bootstrapped, we have to be picky where to waste time.

Review: Ski on Neon

Arguably a Tiny Wings clone, this game is oddly satisfying.  The first level is cake…everything else–my goodness.  This might be the most hardest game of all time.

Overall, I love the feel of the game– the black background paired with neon accent colors, the alien skier, all of it is quite pleasing.  At times, the game is infuriating, but that fury passes after a second or two.

I give this game 4 stars-

-1 because it’s too f*cking hard.

Softball makes the world go round

For the past 5 weeks, we here at DHG have been playing in a local, novice, co-ed softball league every Wednesday.  We played our best and last game of the winter season last week and now…*le sigh*.

Granted…we came in last place and failed to win a single game.  But that’s beside the point!  Most of the players on our team (and by most, I mean ALL my ladies) have never touched a softball, yet alone charge toward a screaming softball to make a play. But hey, we got better and better with every game.

So now it’s over.  Next season starts in April…feels like an eternity away.  Tuesdays (today) is always fun because we discuss positions, strategies, post-game drinking plans…fun stuff!  Now it’s gone, and I don’t think I’m the only one feeling the remorse.

For the love of softball–we anxiously await the next season.
