Nordic Games Festival

nordicgames

Our very own Dan Paladin is a speaker at the Annual Nordic Games Festival which is held in Malmö, Sweden on May 15th.. Dan’s lecture is titled, “Sidescrollers from Start to Finish: Art & Game Design Approaches Intertwined” , so if you’re in Sweden and you want to hear a good lecture on sidescrollers, we highly suggest you attend.

Here is a simulated representation of Dan’s trip to Sweden. The flight path may not be accurate, but I think you can get the idea on where he is going.

Week 7 Winners

This week in the leaderboard competition we have Iceman505 Redux taking the Alien Hominid top spot and MondoBondo coming in first again for All You Can Eat. With his latest win MondoBondo has now reached the coveted Hall of Fame status and will join the ranks with previous winners like Bilgewater and Eric The Duke.





In case you haven’t already done so, be sure to check out the exclusive look at the Behemoth Trophies construction page and marvel at how amazing we truly are (sarcasm)

Behemoth Trophies


For the past couple of months we’ve been working on assembling our custom made Behemoth Trophies in order to ship them out to our weekly Leaderboard winners. During that time we’ve been documenting the process because well….we like to document our projects, and more importantly we’re the first developer/publisher to offer something like this, so we wanted to be sure we had some pictures on hand. Needless to say, they came out amazingly well and the whole process can be seen from start to finish here.

So here is the first ever shot (to your right) of our exclusive Behemoth Trophies. We’ve beeen putting the final touches on them and getting them all prepped for shipping. Our Leaderboard compeition is scheduled to run for a whole year and we’re currently in week 6 of the contest. So there is still plenty of time for you to win one of these exclusive trophies.

If you’re not certain how to enter our competition, it’s simple! First make sure you have a Xbox 360, then you need to log-on to the Xbox Live Arcade service and download Alien Hominid HD (only 800 Microsoft Points!) Finally, you need to be the top scorer in any of theese three categories:
