We finally figured out what to do with the prize money we received from Nimbus Sky Princess’ third place win in the Yoyo games 5th competition. The money will be spent on disaster prevention! I’m not even kidding. We became aware of some issues in our workflow during Kyron’s recent video card meltdown. All of our game files are hosted on that machine. If it randomly decides to kick the bucket we would probably have to think of ways to pick the bucket back up and that would probably too expensive. So the plan is to buy this awesome network back up system . We will love it dearly because it will hold our game projects and comes with a built in blueray writer for archiving. It’s a little bit on the expensive side but it’s more of a long term investment for keeping our files safe and organized. I’m going to be really paranoid until it gets here.
In other news, I found a really awesome write up for Nimbus Sky Princess written by Nathan Meunier. Aside from him saying some really positive things, I also felt like he caught the spirit of the game nicely.
