Been busy doing a ton of work since I'll be leaving town September 22nd to October 10th. Here's some new projects/websites that were recently launched:
A buddy of mine, Cesar, needed a simple website to promote his parents' Tamales company, TaTiana's Tamales
. It's a pretty basic, single page site with the info they needed to promote their product. Nothing fancy, just simple and functional.
We are also currently working on a whole new website for Enjuku Racing and Wheel Warehouse. But those will probably be shown off sometime after I get back.
I also been burning whatever free time I have working on a custom Starcraft 2 map called Party on Outhouse Protectors (poop!). It recently launched in Beta and has been receiving decent traffic on US Battle.net, so if you play Starcraft 2 be sure to check it out. It's a Tug of War map set on your typical MOBA/DotA/LOL/HON map with heroes and what not. Instead of items, you get enhancements, allowing you to upgrade your hero while out on the battle field. You also get a builder to instantly build structures that add units to your spawn. Lastly, a little bit of a strategy element got thrown in by adding four vespene geysers on the map which adds bonus minerals to everyone on your team. It's been serving great to forcing hero fights as teams protect their investment. I've only been doing bug fixes since its launch on 9/2, but I hope to work on some more heroes and enhancements when I get back along with some more balance tweaks. Hopefully it gets popular. We're working on a website for that too in whatever spare time we have, it'll be at www.playpoop.com - but nothing's there yet!
Oh yeah, I've also been playing Xenoblade Chronicles on the Wii. Amazing game and it's a complete shame that people have to go through hoops of hacking their Wii and importing a copy just to enjoy it since Nintendo of America doesn't want to bring it to the States. Completely missing out, one of the best JRPGs I've played in a long time, and I've played a lot of them.
