The boys are cooking up something special for next week, so in the mean-time, let's talk 'bout business, shall we?

There are a lot of debates of late about running your own business. New innovations creating a new job market that benefit a growing generation.

Anna’s musings: Nokia’s in space

Hello, followers of Triolith Entertainment! While the development squad crunches to give you Chapter 2 of MEGATROID, I'll let you in on some thoughts I have regarding a certain time in history when the mobile market was very different.

I have always had a soft spot for underdogs. Unlike many kids today, I didn’t get my first cellphone until I was 19.  Back then the only game you could play was either snake or Battleship. You know what I'm talking about: the age of Nokia phones!

Anna’s musings: thoughts on storytelling in games

Hello, it's me, Anna! Today I will share my opinions on storytelling in games!

When I was a child, videogames were a rarity. To even own a console was something that maybe one kid in your class owned. We've just received our first computer in school when the NES was released. Thinking back, I could never imagine for us to be able to play games on a portable device. The graphics are even better. To understand what we had to put up with back then, just look at an old Zelda commercial with "Superior graphics!". (more...)

We've had all kinds of issues, both small and big, that have added up to quite a delay in production. More on that in a bit. (more...)

The day of reckoning is at hand!

MEGATROID

Good day to you, oh readers! Today I have something very special to tell you! You see, I have had the honor of playing MEGATROID on my phone! Since I am not a developer, I haven't played the game to hell and back, all I've seen is a press statement and a few screenshots. Marcus thought it to be good to have some fresh eyes on the game and give a review! So here we go!

Tommorrow, we dance around Male genitalia!

Now that I have your attention, hello!

Tomorrow is Midsummers eve, which is a pagan ritual that was introduced to us by Germany around 1300. Now that we've established where it originated, let me tell you a bit about it.

Each year, us Swedes are invited or hosting a Midsummer party. Now when it comes to our particular crew, partying always means drinking to the point of nonexistence. However, tradition calls for us to dress up an upside down phallus that is dug into the earth in flowers. It's a symbol for fertility and it is commonly known where most people plant a bun in the oven. There is alcohol involved, so females are more willing to actually breed with the a typical Swedish Midsummer male.

I mean seriously, would you spread your legs for this if you were sober? I thought so..  (more...)
