Did Norrland Arrive?

If everyone who won a copy of Norrland on eBay could post here whether or not they received the discs I sent out I'd be grateful! I know at least two people have not gotten the parcels I mailed, and since I'm planning to send out new ones ASAP it would be good to hear if any of the other ones has gone missing as well.

This is the first time I've ever done something like this so maybe it's a mistake on my part, but I think it's weird then that several packages arrived safely.

Jordan Fehr notified me earlier on Twitter that my site was spotted at #42 in TIME's 50 Best Websites 2010, getting the number two spot in the games category. I don't have any idea how this happened, but I'm very happy and excited about it of course. Thank you TIME STAFF for making me feel special!

Speaking of this, maybe it's about time I update the game's page and clean it up a bit.

Norrland & Gamma4 separate downloads



Cactus Arcade 2.0

So this was meant to get done by Friday last week, but things don't always go as planned. I had a few annoying bugs to deal with, that was nothing but a pain to fix.

Anyway, here it is. The following games were included:
ad nauseam 2, blockon, evac, gamma 4, krebswelte, kryzta, norrland, ping pong, precision, protoganda II, retro 4, silent chain, space fuck, stallions in america, stench mechanics, this is infinity, ultra mission, xoldiers.

DOWNLOAD (~45 meg)

This is not the final release of the pack, Gamma4 needs new music since I haven't asked for permission to use Vitalic's awesome See The Sea (Red) as soundtrack. I'm not sure they'd mind, but I guess I should try to avoid any possible conflicts. So if you have a song you think would fit, please contact me if you want me to include it in the game!

Also, since I have one or two upcoming releases and don't feel 100% sure about the games selected, a change in the line-up might also be on my to do list. I'll also see if I can update the first arcade with vista comaptible game files. And I really need to update my game list on the site! But that's for another day.

The Death Set - Around The World

The Death Set asked me to make them a music video after I borrowed their song for the trailer to Air Pirates. This was about a year ago, and just the other day I realized I really should finish this thing up before it's way too late (maybe it is already).

YouTube Link

I'd gladly make more videos, but only if it's music that I really enjoy myself (or if I get paid). There should be another video out by October.

No More Sweden Presentation

I showed off an early version of Life/Death/Island and parts of Norrland at No More Sweden. The presentation was recorded and has now been put online. Not sure how interesting it is to watch, but might as well post the vids here.
