flora on abragames

Abragames, Brazilian Game Developers Association have posted a note on JogosBR winners. In case you don´t know, JogosBR was a contest organized by Brazilian Ministry of Culture (Department of Culture? Culture Bureau? you decide) to finance games and demos. Flora was one of the selected projects.

It took some time until someone publicized the demos, which were delivered on January 2007. Well, better late than never.

Reminder: you can play Flora online in English and Portuguese. Standalone editions are available in English and Portuguese.

Spore Creature Creator

Brilliant. Here´s the video of my first creature made on SCC:

The editor is great. They could have allowed us more body parts to try on, though.

Casual Games Whitepaper / Spore Trial

On a double post after a loooong time away, here are two interesting things elsewhere on the net:

  • A casual games whitepaper on IGDA´s website on the subject. (via Artur Mittlebach through a games mailing list).

  • Spore Creature Creature Trial is now available for download.

    I still want to publish, sooner or later, an english version of my last paper.

    More and more regular posting would be great too. I do have subjects in mind. Finding time is the tricky part.
