Now, I hope you enjoy the comic. It’s the last one I have in the back catalogue so anything from here on in will actually be new… don’t hold your breath
Today is the funeral for James McLaran, so will be spending today with his friends and family remembering him and his life. Anyone who knows him can leave their memories here, or go to his memorial page on Facebook.
Last week saw a round of graphics updates, bug-fixes and improvements in the game. There’s a picture here showing the hard work involved. I wouldn’t say it’s ready yet (I still have to design another 18 levels) but things are moving in the right direction.
Finally, I’m not sure whether game playing is called research or procrastination anymore. Either way, I do like finding the odd fun game to obsess over whenever I get a spare 5 minutes. My latest attention hog is called Gears and Guts, and basically involves driving cars over zombies. And shooting zombies. And cutting zombies in half with chainsaws. And impaling zombies with spikes. What’s not to like? It’s a ‘fremium’ game that looks really well made and plays really well too. I can already see the looming wall in game progression pushing me towards buying upgrades but I’m not quite there yet. As long as you have a good tolerance for re-running levels and splatting zombies you’ll probably be ok. The only gripe is not unexpected, in that it’s a little sluggish and laggy on my old iPhone 3GS. I’m sure it will get repetitive soon, but for now there’s still another chapter to play through so I’m happy
