How do you kill a Zombie Cow?

By renaming it... to Size Five Studios. Call me an overgrown adolescent if you like but I preferred Zombie Cow.

Thanks guys, I guess I need to change my tags...

King's Quest and Technobabylon are the Roaring Night






It appears that the Indiegames WEBLOG did a very spoiled review of Technobabylon, whereas spoiled means that I'm warning you, they spoil everything from the first paragraph.

They seem to share my opinion though, which is something you all should consider. That my opinion is a rule and a standard. Anyhow, enough self-worship. Read all about it, here.







And we also seem to have a review that took me a while to spot, so it's probably old news for some of you that frequent Adventure Gamers more than I do, but oh well.

If the title doesn't make any sense at all, please let me know. And I'll inform SSH to use his leather whips on me.

Read some about it, by not clicking

ZERG RUSH HOUR


It seems that a new craze similar to the Starcraft in Korea, has gotten over the AGS Forums. Anyone could say the idea behind it, is either the work of a genious or of a totally stupid person.
Regardless it's amazing how everyone has hugged this project.

Baron, the famous ags member, thought of the following formula, initially wondering if it's doable.

"I figure it will take me another 1000 hours to finish my game. Then I got to thinking, if I could only amass a swarm of 1000 fellow AGSers then we could knock the whole thing off in just 1 hour. To summarize:

Man-Hours for Project =1000
Number of Men = 1
Hours to Project Completion =1000

And we increase the number of men, so:

Man-Hours for Project =1000
Number of Men = 1000
Hours to Project Completion =1

And suddenly since last week, everyone started contributing stuff!
So all you need is to dedicate one hour to do what you choose to do. From character art, animation, background art, writing, coding, music, sound effect, anything goes!!

Here, do your thing and be immortalized into what can be named as the most awesome thing ever.

Shane! Come back!

Not only is that the last line of a classic movie, but it also gives us our tenuous link to ProgZMax, aka Shane Stevens who had a string of hits in the eighties, including "This Ole House", "Green Door" and "Merry Christmas, Everyone". Anywahttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gify, quote-unquote have interviewed the man but somehow miss out the questions on his eighties pop career or being a western gunslinger.

Ivy hits the big time

No, she's not a judge on Simon Cowell's new show (AFAIK), but she has had a couple of articles covering her:

And please, no "red-haired fox" jokes, she gives us a sneek peek at something she's working on:
