The Jostle Letters

Hi Pippin, Congratulations on Jostle Bastard! I am keen to see what folks think of it, not only because it is great fun, but also because you’ve given us such a deep look into its development by sharing your notebook, diary entries and so many production builds of the game. The only thing that is missing is something you and I have frequently discussed over the course of the year: the role of satire in Jostle Bastard. I think this is particularly interesting because I don’t see much satire in videogames. Or, at least, not good satire. Grand Theft Auto

Ready for the Weekend 12/21/2012

Everyone have a happy and safe weekend. Be it with family or friends, heck if you all lived near by I would make each one of you a cup of hot chocolate and put a candy cane in it. Have good times and be good to each other.
