Doing things the hard way

This year, we gave a talk at GDC called “Making Night in the Woods Better with Open Source”. In it, we talked about how Night in the Woods, which came out last month and you should totally go buy, used the open source process in its development.

Unlike most of our other talks, we did something a little ridiculous with this one - we built an entire presentation system, from scratch, into Night in the Woods. We’re actually pretty proud of this, and so we put together a video showing how it was done. Check it out!

The talk from GDC is also available online, and we've embedded it below:


Winners at the 20th AIMIA Awards

As we posted about a few months ago, we were really excited to learn that an app we built was nominated for two AIMIA Awards. We're now thrilled to report that the app, Play School Play Time for iPad, built for the ABC, was the winner of the 20th AIMIA Award "Best of Tablet – Entertainment" category, as well as the overall "Best of Tablet"! You can watch the winners videos on the AIMIA website.

We couldn't be more thrilled! We're incredibly proud of the Play School apps, and enjoyed working with the ABC team. The ABC team included: David Glen, James Welbourn (pictured), Priscilla Davies, Tali Gal-on, Peter Marks, Jake MacMullin, Sam Gain-Emery (Sonar Sound), Luke Mynott (Sonar Sound), and Kate Highfield (Education Advisor). Thank you all!
