As of today, my friend Ashley Davis and I are reviving Box Vs. Box, our tumblr which compares video game box art across releases — be it regional, rereleases, or otherwise. This is such a fun project, and I’m really looking forward to posting again!

Hey! We’re back! Ashley and I both had a ton going on there for a while, and couldn’t keep up with our daily posting. The longer we run this blog, the more time it takes for us to find new stuff to post. But we’re back! I’ll be posting Mondays and Wednesdays and, after today, Ashley will be posting on Fridays. We’re super excited! See you around!!
Today’s post was recommended by Adam Robezzoli!

Hey! It’s Veronica Andrews and Stanley Smothers! …They’re pretty set in their ways.
This past Friday was our showcase for the NYU Game Center Incubator, where we were lucky enough to be able to keep working on this game for three months. People seemed to really like the game! Now we’re sneakin’ around and finding desk space wherever we can while we work on some final visual polish, tweak our learnin’ levels, and get some business stuff out of the way.
omg… I did some more lil’ talking animations for SUNBURN!… and omg i made a gif with ‘em
I made a trailer for our game!!! It was really fun to make!!! Check it out!!!

New Portable Weekend Mix, at last!!
…your system is cast aside, left behind in the wake of goings-on and things-to-do. But you can’t leave it behind. Check in on your town, beat that unbeaten boss. That’s what we’re doing this week. Adam and I have been totally swamped, but we’re still going on these mixes! Unpause your true weekend lifestyle and get down with these picks from the past couple and beyond~
Portable picks to help you respawn:
☆ Desert Golfing (iOS) cause you think it’s gonna be over at some point, but you’re wrong.
☆ Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer (DS). All about a fresh start with a bigger inventory.
☆ Picross 3D (DS)… sometimes you’ve gotta take your time to make things right.

The captain has to deal with all kinds of crazy rocks and stuff in order to find the crew. Be careful out there.
Oh man, everybody. Making gifsets is really fun.

RICH KHIVO is the dudeliest member of the crew. He’s a lil’ rude but team members always stick together!! You can make sure Rich doesn’t die alone in S U N B U R N ! for iOS this year. And you can follow us on twitter if you’re interested in some lil’ updates and ramblings.
Haha! Yesterday I made this gif of one of our characters, Rich Khivo. He’s a lil’ bit of a jerk but that doesn’t mean he deserves to die alone.
I went to Brooklyn, New York to visit Nina Freeman, who is currently making a game called Cibele. It is an autobiographical game about Nina’s experience having sex for the first time with someone she met through an online game. The game uses real filmed sequences and sections of an MMO-like game to tell an emotionally difficult story, one of flirtation and betrayal. The art from the game, made by Rebekka Dunlap, is interspersed throughout the article. The header image of Nina was lovingly drawn by New York-based illustrator Elizabeth Simins.
Here is an interview with one of my frequent collaborators and best friends Nina Freeman. She and Emmett (who I worked with on Heads Up! Hot Dogs) are working on a dope new game with even MORE friends. Haha! Holy! That game looks so beautiful and it’s gonna be great.

Thoughts on NYU Game Center Incubator project Soft Body, by Zeke Virant.
My former classmate and current bro4lyf Zeke Virant is making a beautiful, mesmerizing, frantic game called Soft Body. He often asks me for help with visual design which i think is absurd because the game looks stunning. You might like it!!!
