Sometime in the next 72 hours, unless something unforeseen slows us down, we’ll pull the trigger on a small kickstarter campaign.
The immediate goal, and the actual deliverable, is something we’re calling AbbeyCraft – a build of Redwall Abbey inside Minecraft and, at the lowest funding goal, distributed as an adventure map.
To be crystal clear: AbbeyCraft is NOT the adventure game we’ve been talking about. It’s just a small step along the way…but a way fun one.

It has been a busy summer but that does not mean we don’t find time to play new cool games. In this episode of What We Play Chris and John highlight a few new favorites including Beat Sneak Bandit from simogo.com. It is a fun music game where you have to keep a good beat to maneuver your character. Also we are playing our beloved Left 2 Die (we did all the art for the game) published by our friends Everplay Interactive
Chris has been playing Mighty Monsters and of course we have been playing the latest in our prequels to GROG, Wind Up Football. You can see our development of WUR firsthand in our competition to win Intel’s Ultimate Code Ultrabook Challenge.
As always, please post any games you are loving on Twitter, Facebook or the blog and we will try to feature them.
One of the really cool things about touch technology combined with great art and sound is that some excellent games are being made that both soothe and calm. No one has to convince us that the world is too busy. Chris and John showcase some of the games that they turn to for relaxation and even creativity. In this episode of What We Play, they show off Splode, Ancient Frog, Arachnophilia, Osmos, Zen Bound and a really cool new one we discovered through an email from Soap Creative called Qink.
Have a great weekend. Please share any games you are playing that relax.
