Two Quick Things:
First, we’ll be launching a beta of Mintoaur China Shop very soon now. If you’re interested in testing the game–and providing us feedback–please do drop us a line at email@example.com. We’ll be with you shortly.
Second, we plan to announce theses sorts of housekeeping item mainly via our Blurst Twitter account. If you haven’t used it before, Twitter is essentially one-to-many, semi-instant messaging. Users submit 140-character updates about their lives and projects. Interested parties then subscribe to a user’s updates. So follow us on Twitter! We’ll try to be diligent and provide juicy tidbits you won’t get here on the blog.
And if you really want to follow us, all of our source control commits are over @Flashbang.
But now, back to work! Apologies for the relative silence lately; we’re working hard to get all of our non-Blurst stuff out of the way. Things are really shaping up…
And it’s all thanks to you, dear players! You’ve driven for miles across the plains and through the jungles of the Cretaceous, perpetrating the kind of mass genocide that only a gas-powered off-road vehicle can deliver. You’ve jumped, boosted, and two-wheeled your way to victory against the pre-avian hordes, leaving a carpet of feathers (of modern aspect!) in your wake. You’ve pushed more crates than in the original Tomb Raider. You did a barrel roll! Most importantly, you’ve had fun doing it! When the day is done, that’s what matters most to us — that you folks are having as much fun playing our games as we’ve had making them. Cheers, valiant raptor hunters, and thanks for helping to save the future — one delicious raptor taco at a time!
