Summoning games to life in the lab is hungry work which is why we devoted our energy into Unclean Canteen, a new game hosted on something called ‘Facebook‘ (I think it’s based on a movie). As the overworked apprentice to East Pavlovia’s former star chef Boris Stroganov, it’s up to you to stop his restaurant from becoming a three-course disaster.

Through a series of gross and engrossing mini-games, Boris challenges you to whack rats, make suspect sausages and prevent maggot-infested foods reaching the customers. Our plan is to keep updating and adding new content to Unclean Canteen, offering up new grimy gameplay at every opportunity.

And here’s where you come in: If you’ve got a fun idea for a mini-game that you want to see brought to life at Boris’ dodgy diner then we want to hear it! You get to choose what your next duty is – how many jobs let you do that!

So have a play of our existing duties to get the gist and then leave a note below or on Unclean Canteen’s Facebook page briefly describing your idea. The simpler the better!

(And please remember, while we do love a bit of dirtiness, this is still a family establishment ;))

Blimey, It’s been ages since i’ve posted here. I got a load of topics I’ve been meaning to write about, and I’ve managed to get all of none of those actually started.
What I have been doing though is making sure we finally got our latest productions launched.

Beastie Burgers

Beastie Burgers

First up, we have Beastie Burgers, a time management / cooking frenzy style game we’ve been working on in our spare time for the past year and a bit (I can’t believe it’s taken that long). It’s been a lot of fun to build, and roughly marks out the style and direction of the sorts of games and apps we’ll be producing in the future. I’ll have a Hamster & cheese burger with Jalapenos and slime when you’re ready, thanks!

Secondly, we have the social media genius that is, the Beastie Builder, a Facebook app that we built alongside Beastie Burgers. The best way to describe it would be a monster themed dress-up style app. Except, you don’t really dress the monsters so much as assemble them. You can then save them to your photo stream or post them to your news feed (if you feel like it). Just a bit of fun to waste away the hours at work (and help promote Beastie Burgers of course).

I’m planning to write up a bit about the development of these in the future, although quite when I’m not sure yet. Watch this space!

Following several months of preparation, my minions and I are just about ready to release some of what we have been working on to the public.

We are aiming to publish our first proper game early in 2009, but we also have some smaller games, web toys and experiments that we intend to put up before then.

Finally, we are also planning on using this blog as a vehicle to share our opinions about the things that push our buttons.
