Boss Beans

Recently our old coffee machine broke – and not a fan of doing things by half our new machine is a beautiful example of modern Swiss engineering.

As we all know caffeine is a central nervous system and metabolic stimulant. In theory it produces increased wakefulness, increased focus, faster and clearer flow of thought, and better general body coordination.

I wonder how much code would have been written, and how many dissertations completed, if it wasn’t for the wonders of this mysterious alkaloid.*

Although with this said, be warned, ingestion of large amounts of caffeine leads to tolerance and to a condition known as caffeinism. So it is a good idea to take a week off coffee every now and then – otherwise coffee just stops working its magic.

Snow Business

Boss Alien snow day

When we are not making games we are researching fun.

What is “fun”?
Fun seems to be one of those things that you only realise after the event.
You are so entirely enwrapped in the moment, that times passes without you noticing.

Snow fights are a great example – you dont realise until afterwards that you were having fun.

Nerf happens

Secret Santa gifted several of the team with toy guns, as if we needed any encouragement to research the art of play.

The studio arms race has swiftly escalated, and now you can barely make a cup of coffee without taking your foam-rocket-firing-friend for protection. There is now a variety of toy armaments strewn across the studio, some favouring portability over shear firepower, others going all out for rapid fire craziness.*

The Long Count is over…

December 21, 2012 is regarded as the end-date of a 5125-year-long cycle in the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar.

The Mayans predicted many things with their astronomically accurate calendars – and some stone carvings seem to also depict extra-terrestrial life forms.

No aliens…

At the studio there is a fairly strict no alien policy – unless of course it happens to be a Boss Alien.

Waldo’s return

The team has been one member down for a few months – as today the courageous Waldo returns to us from traveling – amidst loud cheers.

Over the coming weeks we hope he will regale us with his tales of his travels from the orient.
