PC Gamer UK: February

Xoldiers was on this month’s PC Gamer coverdisk! And that’s not all – this was in the magazine!

Hi, I’m a game developer!

They got in touch about this a month or so ago very soon before the deadline, so I had to rush my answers a bit and they ended up a bit long winded and chaotic as a result. Thankfully they edited out most of the rambling bits though, heh. (although I guess it was at the cost of some coherency; I mentioned Deus Ex and Silent Hill 2 separately from FFVII)

I noticed they went with a screenshot of We Love Mind Control Rocket instead of, say, Self Destruct! Which is kinda cool! I wonder if that was just a visual composition thing or if someone at the PC Gamer office has played it? I’ve thought quite a bit about returning to that game concept…

(Anyway, needless to say I’m pretty chuffed about all this, heh.) 😀

(This seems as good a place as any to mention: I turned 25 last week. 🙁 )

    Verious, what is that Emption site you always link to?

    Look forward to seeing you in I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here…

    And welcome to the quarter-century club. I’m sure someone’s already told you that secret thing that you need to know now.

    I tried to reply to your blog yesterday from my iphone, but it wouldn’t submit the form for some reason. Crappy safari! 😀

    Congratulations on the PC mag mention, you must be delighted! I would love to be featured in such a manner one of these days, it’s something to aspire towards! Well done mate.

    And happy belated birthday you young buck you! ^_^

    (also, this morning in my sleepy haze, I typed ‘disasterware.com’)
