Hi Everyone!

The time has come (almost) for Gridiron Thunder to launch. 

We have been working around the clock and are putting the finishing touches on the game and discussing optimal release dates with the folks over at OUYA. 

We appreciate all of your patience and can't wait for you all to see the game!

      Will R, I changed my name for comedic purposes. I'm hoping Jimmy McNulty is around these parts somewhere...

      It's cool, they're hard at work failing or something:

      Remember though, this is merely one of FOUR development teams run by MogoTXT
      https://www.facebook.com/photo.php…

      This is Andrew Won we're talking about, he does it big or he doesn't do it at all. I mean, they made Big Fly Baseball for pete's sake http://www.youtube.com/watch… . What? Oh, not that one. This other one. http://www.mogotxt.com/games/big-fly-baseball

      And also some football thing http://www.mogotxt.com/games/mogoBall and apparently texting... or something. And Chucklenauts is made up of the best buddies of THE Robert Oates of Unity - so the team has been vetted like crazy.

      And Mogo is a client in good standing of them, so you know... that's about as good as a passport. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php…

      And they wouldn't lie to us - even though they were just referred to as one of Andrew's Teams when in that post they refer to him as a CLIENT in good standing. Cause that's what I do to my boss, call him a client and let him know he's still allowed to tell me what to do. It's edgy, but I'm self employed and my boss is a masochist, so it kinda works.

      But it is odd in this situation.

      Still, I can't see what you could possibly be worried about. :D

      Not even in the coming soon section yet.. Are you sure you are trying to communicate to Ouya team.

      So, was ten days enough for negotiations? You mentioned that all important Black Friday release date, so we know it'll be at least by then! Looking forward to seeing "49"ers, and my player names and photos gloriously displayed during online play with my homies. All while digging on the 25k sick tunes! GO GRIDIRON THUNDAAAA!

      (This begins the eternal tailgate... Years later he'd be known only as "The Frying Dutchman..." Seen as the patron saint of vaporware, the Frying Dutchman patiently waits for all games to release with his queen, that one lady from the wire who changed their username when people started matching up donors to sports and game industry figures and got cold feet about using their original name. /end fable...)

      Will this will probably be when they disappear off the face of the earth probably blame to folks at ouya for not even trying. They have not even announced their games under coming soon because they took little effort into publishing it.

      I'll inform the D.A.

      Fantastic. Glad to hear you haven't fallen off the face of the earth. We'll be here till the game is completed in full with all promised features and stretch goals, so don't worry about time. :D We're not goin anywhere.
