What's cooking in our kitchen ? 21. January 2009 Squize News (6) I thought it was an idea to show we're not both dead by posting about what we're working on as a stop gap between proper posts.We got sign off for a new project today, one that I mentioned in a comment recently about being the best IP we've had to work with yet. Although I don't think I can mention what it is until tomorrow, so ignore that for now.Next up, a new game for the NFL rush site... ah, NDA, k you'll have to wait and see ( And register to play, joy ).With re-working X, which was my second ever complete Flash game, the irony isn't lost on me that I'm reskinning MJ-12 ( Space Invaders clone, here's another reskin of it ), my first ever complete Flash game. This is for a big boy Dreamworks movie, although this has been outsourced to us with the caveat that we can't pimp it as our own project, or even mention we had anything to do with it really ( I imagine a lot of game devs reading that will just baulk at the idea. I know a lot of people hate sponsors posting their games to portals such as newgrounds and would much rather do it themselves, so to do a game and get no credit at all ? Well, it's not great, but sometimes it happens. If it was something I was really proud of I've got to be honest it would hurt, but a reskin of a game from 2003 which has already made it's money ? I can live with that. Not great, but it's part and parcel of what we do, like handing over the source to clients. If you work as a whore sometimes you have to swallow things you don't want to ).So, nothing to report there either, and never will be.Erm, got a meeting Friday to talk over a new project that I'm really looking forward to, but can't really chat about that yet.We've been asked to pitch for a couple of cool projects, but obviously we can't say anything until at least we've done the GDDs ( Game Design Docs ) because we want to win the jobs.And that's it, you're all up to speed with what we're doing now. Any questions ? Good, 'cause I can't tell you anything anyway.And that's how to pad out a blog post where I don't actually tell you a thing. We've gone from linking to other peoples work to not talking about our own. Next week expect blank posts passed off as a witty satire on the middle East crisis, and a critique of the Bush presidency using a 1px by 1px gif.Squize.
