Hello Games have left their first offices behind. This is a scary thing. We feel naked.
We had to move though, our office was tiny and oxygen was running out.
Our room was four walls, and no windows. It was hot, and bland, but we’ll miss it. I’ve spent some of the best days of my life here and things will never be the same again. It was the belly of the whale and the walls tasted of success and sweat.
Hide and Seek never worked well at our old office...
After the room was empty, we all just stood and looked around, remembering the day we moved in. Then Dave tried to hold my hand, which was awkward, so we left.
It turns out this is what goes into making a game:
7 retro consoles
Our new ebay listing...
Grant is drawing pictures of what our new office should look like. It has wings.
Sometimes we don’t post anything on our blog, because nothing has happened and that’s ok. Sometimes we don’t post on our blog, because way too much is happening and it’s all too exciting, and we have barely slept in months.
This is one of those times (where we haven’t slept in months) and we are sorry.
For all the people who are asking, coming soon are the results of our competition! Thank you so much to everyone who has entered, you are amazing. This is the last day so get those final entries in.
Also, coming soon, exciting Joe Danger news.
Oh and some Hello Games news too, that almost no one will care about… apart from us, who think it’s awesome.
Don’t tell anyone. We have done something naughty.
We have infiltrated PSM3, and covered their magazine in Danger.
PSM3 is known as “The Playstation 3 magazine” and we have managed to spread our propaganda across 8 different pages (6 page feature and 2 page review). This is not just to further our own needs, but the needs of every indie.
Featured this month is a 6 page feature on indie development. As you can see when covering this topic, it’s important to draw equal attention to everyone…
There’s also a TWO page review in the magazine. We don’t know the score yet, but we’ll settle for no score less than the number of pages we’re on.
On Friday July 2nd go to your newsagents and shout “DAAAANGEEEEEER!!!”, they’ll know what you’re after.
Wishing you a very Mary Christmas! Thank you for your support over 2009 and looking forward to an exciting 2010…
From Joe Danger and his four little elves at Hello Games.
When we’re not making Joe Danger, we’re writing about making Joe Danger.
We have this blog, which is the real deal, this is where you come for the truth. We also have another blog with the industry defining Edge magazine. This is where we run a campaign of lies to confuse and unsettle everyone else.
There’s no I in Indie
We’d be really interested to know what you think. Jump in the forum and tell us. Yo.
