    Cool.

    If I hadn't already won promo codes for your three games, I'd be asking for codes so I could review your apps on my site

    Which would eventually lead to a ban for code begging :)

    Status update

    Hi guys!

    We sent the t-shirt picture to the t-shirt guy two days ago, and still haven't heard from him. ??? Anyway, pressing those shirts shouldn't take long, I'll keep you posted.

    And I'll start adding the competition winning entries to v1.3.0 later today. ;)

    ... And I'll announce the next competition here tomorrow, if everything goes as planned.

    Another Status Update

    Ok, we'll be getting a test t-shirt on Monday, and all the shirts on Wednesday, if everything goes ok, which means they'll be mailed during Wednesday-Friday to all the winners. ;)

    I'm working on the competition winner characters at the moment, I'll post screenshots here later today. ;) And next competition will kick off this evening, just wait, you'll see it here soon!

    Ok, Ninja's in!

    He's now in v1.3.0! ;) Next Zombie, and then (the most difficult but the most rewarding) the Pinata!

    Only Pinata remains!

    Pinata WIP

    Pinata is really going to be a different kind of an animal. ;) Especially when you enable super deformed mode the head will be big and heavy...

    I'm still working on the legs (the back legs are missing and the right leg is too much right), after that come the particles. But already it's fun to play with the horsie! ;) I also made it so that the leg joints bend only backwards, like with a real horse.

    Beyond awesome. Do the legs actually have joints? I didn't even think of that possibility :)

    Yup, all those red, blue and yellow boxes are connected using joints, so even the chest of the pony is flexible (I limited the angles of the joints quite a lot, so it's not _that_ flexible, but still can twist itself a little). And they do come off one by one. :)

    Also I hope the credits screen will be ok for you guys. :D

    Credits screen is fine by me. I'm even more excited about using the pinata now you've done the joints thing... I don't know why but when I was drawing it I was only imagining the legs being one solid object each, so I was expecting it to have less parts than the normal characters. This way is much better :D

    Great! It's really a different kind of a character. Some passages on some levels might be too small for him, but not every character works in every place. But this pony can slide the hills down really nice. ;) He feels a bit clumsy, because he's so big, but that will create some funny situations. I'm not sure how we could use him to change the gameplay. Perhaps we'd need an item that reacts to heavy weights? Well, at least he's in the game now. New ideas might appear when you guys get your hands on v1.3.0? ;)

    T-shirt status update

    Ok, we'll be getting that test print today, and if it's ok, the guys will print the shirts starting tomorrow morning. Damn I need my iDrop Dead shirt already... :D
