Stunned my toe this morning… not good. Here’s a lesson to us all…
Evil geniuses and world domination are 2 of our goals... we also like Dr Who
Titanium Bunker are pleased to announce the launch of their latest game – Puppet Pizza Pot-shot Challenge.
Play principle popular puppet promptly propelling perilously piled peperoni pizzas, pasting premier performer Paul, preventing pizzas paining Paul’s Precious PA.

I’ve had a go at recording a show for hack public radio. I’ve emailed through HPR, and hope to hear from them soon…
Just a minor update on the game.
It’s done. Kinda. Just need to add the high score functionality. We are hoping to have an online high score table.
Days taken to make game: 9 days
hours taken to make game: aapproximately 15 hours
average hours per day development:1.66667 hours/ day
once we got the high score set up, expect to see it fleeing the bunker – most likely this weekend
Myself and Dave have just discussed the possibility of an open source comic book.
So – here’s the plan. We aim to investigate the possibility of using Inkscape to layout comic book elements, allowing the community to create comic books. As part of the assets, we will ship a set of svg files – each representing a character, and while this framework can be extended to provide comic art and layout for any character, we will be shipping an as yet undesigned captain freedom.
Captain Freedom is a freedom fighter, looking to protect the software freedoms that we all take for granted. He battles the forces of evil, or those typically looking to damage the freedom of end users..
This is going to be a mainly art based project – and who knows… it may never get made (due to inkscape issues), but we’re going to give it a go.
Who can save the day? Captain Freedom can!
So yesterday I tried my hand at public speaking. For a first attempt I feel that there are many lessons to learn. I think the biggest lesson to learn from my attempt was that the pressure and nervousness is plapable – in many ways I have a renewed respect for people who make it look so easy – people like Simon Phipps or Lorna Mitchell,
I also learned that going to the community with the slimest concept of an idea is not enough. I think I have the skeleton of an idea, and I still feel strongly about the concepts I was trying to talk about.
So I’m going to write more articles – learning the lessons from Lorna, and really flesh out these ideas,
There were interesting points raised – and I’m also going to address these….
My plan is to really complete this and to present not only a concept, but an implemented idea. All the articles will be tagged ContentPackaging

Here are some work in progress of our new game, tentatively titled ‘puppet pizza potshot challenge’ the game will probably be finished in a week or so.
Inspired by the recent story in the news about Paul Daniels being struck accidentially on the head by a pizza by children’s entertainment stalwart Sooty, Dave is working on a fuuny game based on the italian cuisine based incident.
We’re hoping to get it al complete for OggCamp – see you there.
