Captain Morgane and the Golden Turtle

Although I wrote and designed this game some time ago and artwork was being shown last year, there has just been an announcement that Reef Entertainment is to be the publisher.  According to the information the game is due out in October this year, so some excellent news, there. There is an official Captain Morgane web site but it seems…

So Blonde on the Wii and DS

If you don’t already know, the Wii and DS versions of So Blonde are out today in the UK. If you haven’t already ordered your copy or haven’t thought about doing so, please consider it. Even those of you who already bought the PC version will find that this game offers a new experience that acts as the perfect companion piece to that.

Top Ten Games I Worked On

I was sorely tempted to add Beneath a Steel Sky to my list of Top Ten games in the previous post, but I think that would be bad form because I worked on it. Although I didn’t do any of the writing and design, I still think it’s not something I should put on a list like that. So here…

See me on Adventure-Treff

Voice recording

I just got back from the voice recording we did for the Wii version of So Blonde. I was working with DTP (the publisher) and the talented guys at Outsource Media, who organised a great cast again and ran a great series of recording sessions that couldn’t have gone any smoother if we’d wanted. If you want to see a…

Another excellent review of So Blonde

So Blonde review at Just Adventure +

(I know, I know, it’s been ages since I posted…) Over at Just Adventure + they’ve just published a very good review of So Blonde. Greg Collins, who wrote the review, gave it a score of A- and said some very nice things along the way. Again, another guy who really understood what we were trying to do with the…
