Back from Comic-Con and still catching up on emails and PMs! I want to write about the past week, but there is so much STUFF that I feel like I don't have time to do it justice right now. Lots of people came out and lots of fun was had... Our booth had record turn-out so every year things just keep getting bigger and bigger.

You can see lots of pics at the Behemoth DevBlog!

Also sirevil posted more pics! Yes, that sirevil from the 2005 campus promo contest!

Because of the constant flow of new people through NG, I always need to explain: Back in 2002, Dan Paladin and I made a web game called Alien Hominid. We then formed the Behemoth and made a console version. Since then we made Castle Crashers, which has become a runaway hit on XBLA and is now headed to PS3! Every year we have a booth at Comic-Con in San Diego, where lots of NG folks show up and hang out.

More news after I get settled in. Power of Three is ongoing and the NG team has big stuff in the works. The foundation is being built for an exciting fall!

BTW I've seen a lot of reviews complain about the difficulty of When Pigs Fly, but I think you need to give it a shot. You start on the same screen where you died and have unlimited lives. I was able to beat it just fine!

This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

I totally would have cosplayed as a Castle Crasher if I was down there.

Not too creeped out by people, Tom?

And I then got a tattoo because I thought it was so awesome. It was very influential.

So why, after a year of only being on XBLA, the sudden change?
