Hey! Look! It's an update!
It's been a while since there's been an update. The reason is that we kept almost having the international headsets shipped out and thing after thing after thing has gotten in the way of that. We're sorry. As of today, half of the international headsets have been shipped out. We're hoping to get that up to 100% by the end of next week, but we can't promise that it will happen. We're working as fast as possible to get those headsets shipped out.
Now for some cool stuff!
We've started doing weekly internal playtesting of the game, and we had an idea: Why not livestream our playtests? We're going to have 1-hour livestreamed playtests every Thursday at 6PM, Pacific Standard Time. Tune in at http://www.livestream.com/throwtrucks to join us or watch old playtests.
Lat is giving a lecture at Stanford on 10/8 at 3PM at Stanford on the gamification of neurofeedback therapy, a subject he accidentally became an expert on. He'll be talking about the design process behind the game, sources of inspiration, how we refine the fun of a game, and will probably also take a minute to explain everything he hates about the word "gamification." So, if you happen to be in the Palo Alto area, drop by and Lat would be happy to see you:
