What an honor!

So, it's hard to have a blog where we talk about our adventures where we don't feel like we're just tooting our own horns.  I mean, we're not walking around with huge egos or anything, but sometimes accolades just fall in our laps and this is our place to talk about them.  So let's just say this...

It's an HONOR for Arian to have been invited to be a guest speaker today at the Microsoft Store at University Village in Seattle.  Makerbot sought him out to be a presenter and he's bringing some of his amazing 3D printed designs.  We hope to see you there, 5 to 7pm!

Oh, and he will have his newest printed marvel there, Baby's First Mace.  It's just too damn cute.

We Went to Hackathon!

It's been a while since we've posted, but it's certainly not because we haven't had anything going on.  We've been BUSY.  There are now 16 factions of Pocket-Tactics, not including a few redesigns lately.  Context is another new game Arian created, a word game this time.  Jeremy and I had a beautiful baby girl, who keeps our hands full and us entertained.  And that's not to mention the hours and hours of development that's been going into three different versions of Continuum - the Continuum Adventure Engine, Continuum Mini, and Continuum Narrative Engine.  More on all of those soon.

But the big news is that Arian traveled across the country and got to participate in Hackathon at MakerBot Headquarters in Brooklyn, NY.  Holy hell. He got to see rooms filled with MakerBot printers while meeting 3D printing enthusiasts across the country who have actually played Pocket-Tactics.  So cool.

Arian's team came in second for the competition at the Hackathon.

He came home inspired and has been pounding out the codex work ever since.  We're still exploring options for printing Pocket-Tactics in a more cost-effective way, but in the meantime there are so many other projects nearing completion.
