Beepin’ Right - January 10th, 2008

Happy belated 2008! Hope everyone’s broken a few new year’s resolutions already.

First, a small update about the progress of Nanobots. There’s an extended plot summary and some more screenshots here. I’ve recruited a few beta testers, and Vince has been coding like it’s his job. I’m confident we can release the game by mid-February, possibly even on Valentine’s day. That would make it two years to the day since everyone’s favourite goldfish and dead girl first came to be. I’m getting a bit misty already.

Secondly, I’ve just uploaded the first new comic of the season. It’s about one peg above “pun” on the joke-acceptability scale, but that didn’t stop me from writing it. I hope history vindicates me on this one.

    You’re quite harsh with your new comic :

    It will (maybe) be written:
    “Still in her second yellow-and-blu-and-brown-and-numerous-other-colors-art-period, ‘Ivy’ depicted here the lacanian subjectivity of one’s greatness, the metaphysical questionnings about scalar & freudian invariance :
    A three-sided polygon can alway look down to the smaller ones inside, but how big is a triangle, knowing that there always are bigger ones outside? That’s the same for Godzilla, japanese people, and the big meteor fall of 2099, as exposed in Sirpinski’s thesis. This artwork proves us that humility, golden ratio, and bat-grenades keep us safe from most big dangers. Hurray!”

    Well, quite vindictive indeed…

    Hahaha, I like it! Excellent use of citation, too. ;) As a university student, I must say that made more sense than some of my course readings.
