One of my gamedev heroes, Ragnar Tørnquist, played the game at the Humble party. His work inspired me to get into the industry many years ago, so it was really cool to get to watch him play.

The 8BitMMO Headquarters / Supply Closet

We've snuck into REACTOR's supply closet and set up shop there.  I'm pretty psyched about our new digs:

My desk

My desk - the displays on either side are monitoring real-time server status.  The blue monitor turns red if a server is down.  Also: ramen.

We've also got a white board, but it is full of secrets. ;)

Ordering more (IRL) Shirts

I need to do a reorder of shirts so I'm opening it up to everyone to order if you're interested.

They'll be somewhere between $13-$20 each + shipping depending on how many folks buy-in.  I don't think Google Wallet allows IRL product purchases like Google Checkout used to, so we'll experiment with PayPal for this (or you can send Check, Money Order, Bitcoin, etc).

If you want to buy one, please open a support ticket with the subject 'shirt'.  :)

shirt preview

  • Gildan 5000 Heavy Cotton Tee
  • 5.3-ounce, 100% preshrunk, open-ended carded cotton
  • Classic loose fit for all-day comfort
  • Shoulder-to-shoulder tape and seamless collar
  • Double-needle neck sleeve and bottom hem

shirt details - basic

Back from PAX!

I had a great last few days at PAX, where I got to show 8BitMMO to the attendees.  I had a kiosk in the REACTOR booth, and many folks stopped by to learn about the game.  I handed out my entire supply of 1,000 postcards and demoed the game a few hundred times.

Many people had already heard of the game, or even played it previously.  A few fans stopped by too, and it was an awesome experience to meet them IRL.

It was also a great opportunity on the business side - I got to meet media outlets that had previously covered us online and ones who are interested in doing so in the future.  Additionally, a number of industry folks stopped by, and we discussed some very exciting plans for the future. ;)

On Sunday I got to DJ for about twenty minutes for an impromptu dance party (DJ RobbyZ!)

It. Was. Awesome. :D
