crayon physics

there are a whole bunch of badly drawn games i’ve been meaning to write about. but first up is the cool ‘crayon physics’. the deluxe version is underway and should be very cool – the current one is a bit limited. but really fantastic for a game written in a week.

click on the pics to visit the site, learn more and download the thing.

and check out crayon physics deluxe (the in-development version). nice video too.

more fame

nothing much happens for ages, then lots happens at the same time

while i was working on the toon studio, a reporter from the new grid-world news dropped by and asked me for an interview. this was published a few days ago here. somehow in the interview i wasn’t sure if i came across all mercenary and what-not, but its pretty nice about me and my doodles.

sl toon studio fame…

the sl toon studio (see previous post) has started to get a few mentions in the blogs…

Osprey has written about it on SLGames (see previous post), but also has a great pic of the sl toon studio set on the roof of her photography studio in Grignano posted on Atomic Raygun.

the rules for the current photo-competition have also been posted on the Second Life art news blog.

then the studio was also spotted by an intrepid second life insider reporter, who said nice things about it.

and i’ve somehow gathered a total of 4 mentions on japanese blog slrank. i have no idea what they said about anything, but presumably they quite liked what they saw. anyone know if there’s a japanese version of xytext? if there is such a thing, i’ll see if i can do a japanese version🙂 The posts are here in chronological order…

toon studio on slrank.com blog 1

toon studio on slrank.com blog 2 (link to movie and competition prizes in English)

toon studio on slrank.com blog 3 (paid a visit to my home spot in Amicitia)

toon studio on slrank.com blog 4 (a visit to the Grignano photography studio. which is visited again here)
