An Article That Makes Sense?

Seriously, you didn't expect this. Hell, we didn't either. But here it is. A sensible article, on our website? Probably just an anomaly, so expect the usual evil, trashy article next week. In the meanwhile, why not put on your monocle and read through this one? It summarizes the long process of making Black Olive - Chapter 1, from a programmer's point of view.

The Grey Rainbow, reviews and reflections

The Grey Rainbow, our first game, has been out for 4 months. In that time we received both praise, and some criticism. Since we are evil we don't care either way, and we hate everyone! Still, we are glad that many people liked the game, though I understand how some people can't get over the drawings (which are intentional) and the decidedly text-heavy adventuring. But, those who allow the game five minutes of their time will find a wonderful story and a lovely adventure waiting for them. Here is a summary of all the reviews and noteworthy publications of The Grey Rainbow, so far.
