Glow Artisan

Friday, January 8th, 2010 by Niki

A game that I worked on during my time at Powerhead Games was just released: Glow Artisan! It’s a puzzle game for the Nintendo DSi and it is quite addictive. It has already received a number of glowing (groan) reviews:

Nitendo Life 9/10
Game Set Watch

If you have a DSi I highly recommend forking over the $5 to buy it.

Winx Club: Mission Enchantix

Monday, February 2nd, 2009 by Niki

The last game that I worked on was Winx Club: Mission Enchantix which was released in the US at the end of November. My boss just alerted me to a rather nice review of the game found on Game Vortex.

While there were a lot of problems during the development of the game (mostly dealing with the licensor-publisher-developer relationship and communication problems) I can honestly say that I enjoyed working on this title. I may have complained a lot about the side scrolling engine during development but I think the finished product came out quite nicely.

In completely unrelated news I should probably mention that I participated in the Global Game Jam and ended up working with one of my co-workers (with whom I’ve never actually worked before, we have always been on different projects) as well as a programmer whom I met at the event. The full details of the event will be forthcoming.
