Mag-Nets at the Gadget Show

I was up at the NEC in the second city of Birmingham last week (very vaguely) assisting the Total Monkery gang showcase Mag-Nets at the Gadget Show Live. The game went down amazingly and it was great to see people playing it and really loving it. That's always a treat as normally I never see how my work is received - I just assume it's universally loved by everyone!

Here are some designs for the robot character you control. It's getting there. It's a fine balance getting it cartoony but appealing to the game playing demographic who shy away from too much cuteness - I think we're nailing it though.

We're wanting to make the character as customisable as possible - this is especially important for multi-player game play so you can keep track on your self when the game play gets too frantic.

These two hologram headed robot were an early idea but unfortunately the semi-transparencies and flickering holo-effects I wanted would slow everything down... or some such computery excuse.

You can follow the progress of the game on the Total Monkery blog. It's an amazing venture and you need to support your British indie developers.

Thing of beauty

I found this beautiful thing at a car boot sale (I think it was made for a grave) and sprayed it up to make it even more fabulous!

Humpty Dumpty

Here's another nursery rhyme for SBL. Did you know that Lewis Carroll made Humpty an egg. It was originally an old cannon in Chelmsford.

 Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall.
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.

All the King's horses....

And all the King's men. Couldn't put Humpty together again.

This little piggy

Here's another nursery rhyme from the SBL app.
You know how it goes:

This little piggy went to market.

This little piggy stayed at home.

This little piggy had roast beef.

This little piggy had none.

And this little piggy went, "Wee wee wee wee!"
All the way home.

Hey Diddle Diddle

Here are some bits of artwork I created for a nursery rhyme app for Short, Bald & Lanky. That's the company name but the founders are actually short bald and lanky. I'll post other images from other rhymes over the next couple of days so stay tuned.
