Nikki's Business Card and Stickers

Thursday, February 16th, 2012
Joyride Labs Nikki Business Card

In preparation for the soon-to-be release we printed some stickers to hand out. The business cards we've had for quite a while but I believe we haven't shared them yet. If you have a game-making-related business card yourself, share it!

Meanwhile, we're solving problems that prevent Nikki and the Robots from running on various computers. If you would like to help us make sure that Nikki 0.5 will run on the operating system of your choice, feel free to drop us an email.

Nikki's Valentines Heart Shirts and Global Game Jam

Wednesday, February 1st, 2012

Valentines Pixel Neon Heart Female Shirt DesignValentines Pixel Neon Heart Male Shirt Design

We added a neon pixel heart design to our shirt store. It is based on one of the first game objects that you will see when playing Episode 1 of the story mode:

Nikki and the Robots Neon Heart

One of us was at the Global Game Jam in Berlin as an organizer.

ggj2012 topic

The theme was a snake biting its own tail and we made a tiny level referencing it. Too late for submission though. ;)

The video also shows the recently added game over screen menu (no more abrupt returning to the level selection) and a new, simple background for the editor.

Three Shirts (contest ends when July 7th ends)

Sunday, July 3rd, 2011
("When July 7th is over everywhere" would be another way to describe it.)

The levels we received so far made us want to give a little more in return, so we'll throw in two more shirts for the best level designers.

Three Nikki Shirts

So submit cool levels before July 7th is over and win one of three shirts and one of ten pre-order copies of Nikki and the Robots. :) Check out the previous entries here and here.

For rules, check out this announcement.

We only have two shirt styles, so if anybody has ideas for new stuff to print, let us know.
