Tuesday, November 22nd, 2011

Hey all, just wanted to let everyone know that one of the co-founders of DrinkBox Studios, the one and only Chris Harvey, will be speaking at GamerCamp in Toronto this Sunday.

The talk, entitled “DrinkBox Days – Bringing Blobs and Guacamelee To Life” will be held at 4:30pm at George Brown College (230 Richmond St East).

Chris plans to give an overview of the development process for Mutant Blobs Attack and Guacamelee, talk about lessons learned and how we have changed things since the development of Tales from Space: About a Blob.

There are a lot of other great speakers planned. Check out the full list here.

We also plan to show Mutant Blobs Attack and Guacamelee to the public at the “MakerU Play-Test Zone” on Friday afternoon. This event starts at 1:15pm and is being held at the CSI Annex (720 Bathurst Street). Hope to see you there!

Hey guys. DrinkBox recently attended the Digifest First Person Show with playable versions of Mutant Blobs Attack and Guacamelee. Megashaun and Darcy from The Electric Playground were there filming, and the footage can now be viewed online here:

They were kind enough to edit out most of my awkward pauses.

In addition to clips of Guacamelee and Mutant Blobs Attack,  you can see clips from other great Toronto games such as They Bleed Pixels  (with music by Megashaun) and Sissy’s Magical Ponycorn Adventure!

The video of the whole episode can be viewed below. Our part starts about 18:30 in.
