NintendoLife Wii pitch interview

Press cutting added by Ste Pickford on Thu, 10 Jul 2014

NintendoLife Wii pitch interviewNintendoLife got in touch a week ago to ask us about the pitch we did for a Wii version of Naked War (subtitled No Surrender) which we submitted to Nintendo a few years ago, to no avail. The interview resulted in quite a nice piece on their website, whi...

Plok German print ad - SNES

Press cutting added by Ste Pickford on Tue, 12 Nov 2013

Plok German print ad - SNESAfter posting the terrible UK print ad for Plok on the SNES, then the strange US one that was at least half about other games, a very kind blog reader gave us a scan of the German print ad for the Nintendo release of the game, from around 1994 I think. ...

Plok US print advert #1 - SNES

Press cutting added by Ste Pickford on Wed, 23 Oct 2013

Plok US print advert #1 - SNESWe blogged the ridiculous UK press advert for Plok a couple of weeks ago. To follow that up this is one of the two weird US print ads for the same game, and it's only slightly better. Better because it at least shows Plok on the advert (although no scr...

Equinox UK print advert - SNES

Press cutting added by Ste Pickford on Thu, 17 Oct 2013

Equinox UK print advert - SNESHot on the heels of the truly dreadful UK print advert for our SNES game Plok that I posted last week, I've done a bit more digging and found another advert for one of our SNES games that's almost as bad. This advert is for our isometric adventure / puz...

Plok UK print advert - SNES

Press cutting added by Ste Pickford on Thu, 10 Oct 2013

Plok UK print advert - SNESThis is the specialist games-press advert for Plok on the SNES in the UK, published by Nintendo. Isn't it awful? (Click the image to see it in its full horror.) The weird US print ad was posted by someone on Facebook yesterday (it's weird because half ...

In very good company

Press cutting added by Ste Pickford on Sun, 21 Jul 2013

In very good companyMagnetic Billiards was listed in the Observer's 50 Best Games for Tablets and Smartphones this morning, which was a nice surprise to wake up to. We're in some pretty amazing company here. I wonder if we can get a special prize for being the lowest gros...

Code Britannia interview

Press cutting added by Ste Pickford on Sat, 20 Apr 2013

Code Britannia interviewJohn and I had a nice chat with Dan Whitehead the other week, in a quiet Manchester pub, talking about our game development past. Dan wrote this up as a great 'Code Britannia' profile for Eurogamer. It's a nice read. We were disappointed to find out...

Telegraph mini-review

Press cutting added by Ste Pickford on Thu, 04 Oct 2012

Telegraph mini-reviewThe venerable UK national newspaper The Telegraph yesterday published part two of their 500 Must-Have Apps supplement, covering all mobile platforms, which finished off with a nice little mention for Magnetic Billiards: Blueprint. The list wasn't just f...
