Massive Update for NinjaTrials - and a Clever Twist


Earlier this year we launched our debut iOS game, NinjaTrials, a platform puzzler like nothing else on the App Store. It was well received, even featuring in Apple’s Hot New Games section, and the consensus from the public was “brilliant, but give us more”.

We listened, of course, and are very happy to say that a major new update has hit the App Store featuring refined controls, more levels, and some fiendish new characters and obstacles. Take a look at the trailer to see just what craziness lies in store for our apprentice ninja: http://bit.ly/nttrailer

The Twist
These new additions will hopefully confirm what a joyous game NinjaTrials is, an ethos that extends to the unique payment model. The game is now free, meaning you can play the whole game without spending a bean but after four levels something happens - something fundamental, surprising and rather magical. A small in-app purchase restores order to the game but for now we’re going to tease you as to what this is - why not try it yourself?

Gamification - Inside Out Magazine

This morning I was hugely pleased to receive a copy of the article that I contributed to for "Inside Out" - the (rather brilliant, as you might expect) magazine published by the Institute of Internal Communication. I think it's a brilliant piece and I'm hugely excited about the potential in the area of internal comms - particularly as that's where this all started 12 years ago! Anyway hope you enjoy the article, I'm off to try and find a way to get my head through the door...

Success for Red Bull Speed Jam!

Well, after months of hard work the big day came, Saturday (3rd Sept) saw a host of Red Bull Athletes, some of the UK’s top karting talent, oh… and 15,000 spectators descend on Cardiff Bay for Red Bull Speed Jam.


The day kicked off with a spectacular aerial display by the Red Bull Matadors and then we were treated (for example) with displays featuring The Red Bull F1 Car, Nascar, motorbike stunts, burnouts by the bucketful and of course the semi-finals and final of Red Bull Kart Fight (on which Kart Fighter is based), as you might expect the event was non-stop adrenaline from beginning to end.

All in all it was a wonderful day. I for one can’t wait until next year!
