Mega Jump loves Yuki Rin

All that song recording and being famous can be exhausting, so it’s understandable that Yuki Kashiwagi (Yuki Rin) might want to unwind with a game of Mega Jump 🙂 Yuki’s star-power was enough to launch Mega Jump to the #1 spots for Arcade and Action games in Japan, and #5 Overall! Thanks Yuki, and to all Yuki Rin’s fans! You rock!

Indie Game Showcase Presentation @ Behind the Front Visual Arts Studios

I had the benefit of presenting at the Indie Game Showcase here in Toronto this past Saturday, September 18th.  A one night showcase of some indie games made by developers here in Toronto as well as presentations by some of those developers.  This event was part of the Hand Eye Society series of events.  If you’re not familiar with the Hand Eye Society I highly encourage you to check out their website and find out what they’re all about.

In my presentation I covered a range of topics about the recent success we’ve had with Mega Jump and some of the steps about how we’ve been able to achieve that.  At least one person asked me if the slides would be made available afterwards and indeed they will be.  In fact here they are!
