Chess The Gathering: Making the Pieces Digital

Last week I forgot to post our third design video for "Chess The Gathering" so (oops) here it is. This week Holly and start making a digital version of the paper prototype and realize that the creatures and modifiers may be a bit trickier on a computer screen. Video below!

28 Weeks later: Vita + Sale!

The irony isn't lost on us that it's "28 Weeks Later" and A Virus Named TOM is still contagious. As a matter of fact, AVNT will be infecting the Sony Vita and PlayStation Mobile certified devices this summer! To celebrate the impending doom, AVNT will be 50% off on Steam and at aVirusNamedTom.com for our 28th week (Friday - Friday: Feb 15-21). So if you're loved one wasn't happy with their chocolates and flowers, give them a virus!

The PSM version will have some new levels & features in store for you. We haven't completely figured everything out yet, but we're excited about adding touch controls for tablets & phone, and even some multiplayer possibilities :D

We're hoping to have something ready to show by PAX East and GDC, so if you're going to either drop us a line and we'll get it in front of you!
