Spot the Gecko! – Friday, April 14, 2017 on sgamet

Folks,  What can I say about weeks like this? Things move along, work gets done, and progress continues apace. About the only thing that is going wrong now has been getting an office for the Seattle team. We think we’re close, but we’ve thought that before. It’s just really different out in Seattle (it’s booming, and commercial space, where we are looking, is tight) than it is in Virginia (lots and lots of space, almost…

As with some of our previous updates, we’ve got more gameplay-oriented highlights in this week’s Top Tenish, as we said we’d be turning our focus. We’re slowly…

sgamet – Sailing with the Tide of Updates – Friday, May 12, 2017

Folks, We have been very busy this week. I think George summed it up well with: “Cross dependencies everywhere!” We have so many different systems coming together, and several new systems, as usual, coming in, that this week was particularly busy for those of us managing the flow of change. Not to mention the hard-working team supporting that process! I can confidently say this busyness will continue into next week if our Top Tenish work-in-progress items are any indication….

RuneScape: Idle Adventures is an experimental idle game that blended RuneScape’s core mechanics with AdVenture Capitalist’s idle gameplay and added on a healthy dose of humor.

The company announced late last month that it will be shutting down on May 15th, having spent eight and a half months in Early Access. According to Hyper…
