Ever wonder what it would look like if Bill Plympton drew the tank logo? WONDER NO MORE. We funded his Winsor McCay Resurrection Project and got this in return:

Bitey Mask

We made the top pledge to Adam Phillips' Dashkin game on Kickstarter and were awarded with a Bitey mask! I didn't have the nerve to take off my shirt though.

YouTube Blues

So we uploaded Jazza's "Internet Pals" video to YouTube last week and it has already been blocked by an "Age Restriction" wall, which seems really odd because there is sooo much animated violence on YouTube with a lot more views that hasn't been blocked. One more reason why I feel like someone at YouTube is out to get us.

What really peeves me though is the page says, "This video or group may contain content that is inappropriate for some users, as determined by the video uploader." If you click the link for more info, it explains, "This age restriction is imposed by the uploader and is not a result of flags from YouTube's user community." However I DID NOT impose this age restriction and don't have the ability to remove it.

Also they fucked up the colors in their thumbnail screen capture.

Treasure

2011-06-03 12:15:07 by TomFulp

Treasure is a small company in Japan that makes amazing games. They've made some of my favorite games of all time, such as Gunstar Heroes, Guardian Heroes and Radiant Silvergun.

Treasure is also one of my biggest inspirations and I try to emulate their magic when I make games. I don't think I could ever make something as good as what they make but it's the goal I try to set for myself... Which makes this article really crazy:

They also have an XBLA version of Radian Silvergun coming to XBLA, which is especially awesome for everyone because the disc version for Saturn is super rare and expensive. RS is my favorite shooter of all time:

I had this on a VHS tape back in high school and I used to watch it like porn.


President, CEO, Founder, etc.

I was recently asked for my official title and it brought up a long-running debate that runs through my head every time I'm asked to fill in my title on paperwork... WHAT is the LEAST DOUCHEY way to refer to yourself when you run a company?

1. CEO - Does this make it sound like I'm puffing the company up as something more than it is?

2. President - Does this make me sound like I'm equating myself with someone who runs a country?

3. Founder - Does this imply I no longer fill a role, I just happened to be there at the start?

4. Owner - Just seems a bit TOO informal, like it's a car.

THOUGHTS?

UPDATE: Rice Pirate has made a preloader that sums up the experience Friday night of trying to match-make all the teams after having a clock that was an hour off and over 100 people in chat:

SWF (preview)

FLA (in AS3)

If you don't like the visual you can pass on it, but it's there if you want some unity amongst the submissions. :)

The movie jam is now in progress! Sorry that the match-making live stream was total chaos and sorry this whole thing in general was kinda a mess.

The deadline is SUNDAY NIGHT at 7pm. When you submit your movie you can post a link in the discussion thread so everyone can find it.
