Fun Facts
Robertson Holt organized the Toronto Global Game Jam this year (let's hope he does it again).

Neil posts regular expert blog entries over at Gamasutra. Plays "Soul Calibur 4" more than "Street Fighter 4". Suspect he plays "Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe" the most.

Catherine Hayday writes for BlogTO and covered the the TOJam #4 Arcade. Thanks Catherine!

This may be the first game created in Google O3D! Neil didn't have time to upgrade his export pipeline to support Max's biped rig, so they couldn't use their fancy mocap animations. While the stiff monster is somewhat loveable, that wasn't really the plan.

Jerry's Corner
Isn't it amazing what google technology can be coaxed into doing? I personally love to see things made to do things they weren't designed to do. TEXMEX features classic comic book style graphics and simple gameplay mechanics. I'd love to see some helicopters, tanks and other monsters thrown into the mix in the future!


Jim's Corner
The sense of humour that prevades this game is fantastic. I love the idea (monster clears traffic for transit), and it's a great excuse to destroy a city. The isometric perspective, with Google Maps as the ground, works really well. Alas, TexMex is currently more of a tech demo than a game (which the team fully admits). Amazing potential.
