Illustrators Inc: What you missed

Illustrators Inc: What you missed

Earlier this month I snuck into Illustrators Inc. and spent an inspiring talking to illustrators, creatives, designers, publishers and a Laureate. If you missed out on the day itself - don’t miss out on the incredible presentations - from licensing, marketing all the way back to layout and design.

You can even relive the moment when Warren had everyone in the room design an app for kids…


Don’t believe me? Check out CBI’s site for that and a whole lot more!

Xbox One v Playstation 4: The Verdict

Xbox One v Playstation 4: The Verdict

With both Microsoft’s Xbox One and Sony’s PlayStation 4 now on shelves - the reviews are coming in thick and fast. Neither console has a list of game software to live up to the hardware that they are shilling - but both are looking to the future alongside entertainment integration and a whole lot more.

Check out the Polygon reviews for both Playstation and Xbox.

*Fun fact of the day: Xbox One and Playstation 4 both surpassed 1m console sales on launch day.

Kings of the Realm Beta IS GO!

Kings of the Realm Beta IS GO!

Digit Games have launched the beta of Kings of the Realm… and after a few hours of gameplay yesterday, I’m calling it. It’s a winner.
Completely free-to-play with an instant community, and an almost endless list of possibilities. Build up your own realm, and interact with others in real-time on the larger map. It’s BETA so there are glitches here and there, the system is still being built and everyone is still learning - but after so much build up it is finally live. And playable. And sooooo good.

I’m working with them on something big for the launch next year *cough* - till then go lose a few hours in gameplay and help build one EPIC MMO.

Go on now. Get to registering!
