After a week of being chased by some tough, tough bugs (state machines, matrix math, don’t ask…) I decided to pluck a strawberry, so to speak, and see how it tasted. I put in a version of CW1/CW3 style collectors to test how they would work. Now, they are different in that they don’t insta-deploy. […]
New video time! Btw, if you would like to discuss this with other citizens of the Creeper Nation, you can now do so on a brand spanking new Discord server. Here’s a widget to connect, followed by a video and screen shot of Mortars in action.

Yes, entropy is the ‘best’ monster. Once upon a time I remember thinking, “I wonder if there would be a way to codify nihilism and entropy into a fun little video game for kids and adults alike”? Like many of you, it looks like the folks at RPS caught onto the subtle (or not so […]
Go here: http://store.steampowered.com/SteamAwardNominations/ Alternately, you can just visit one of the games…. oh say CW3 here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/280220/ Then click Nominate and click, I dunno… maybe “Just 5 more minutes” award or something like that.
