Apologies for the sync problem with the sound – we had issues with the original sound encoding, and had to overlay the sound file from the twitter feed. Live and learn.

1. Update on Artwork

  • Frederick and his wife Rianne have just given birth to their baby daughter! So for the past week he was indisposed somewhat becoming a father.

  • PopinnPlay recap: That was a lot of fun, some great projects there. Also with the weather so warm, the location proved brilliant to cool off in the afternoon. Here’s a little list of our favourites we came across there:
    • Black Box Adventure’s Frutti di Mare – on Kickstarter and heading towards funding, check em out!
    • Triq Traq – single or multi-player easy and simple app to help you create amazing electronic music tracks! Available at the app store (apple devices only at the moment)
    • Spin Marimba by Four Horsemen Games – an awesome revamp of the classic Pong

4. Interview with Niels, creator of the game Rifugio

…who gave us the idea of cutting the other’s beard, since the size of our beards dictates who gets to wear the dress at events…

Rifugio is a fun 2-4 player game that is a fun strategic hike through the Italian alps. Self published by Niels himself, already sold over 2000 copies, and available now at www.rifugio.nl

Until then, keep questing you fine BaRPiGs
