All About Chickan_117
My Game of the Year Selections
Note : System in brackets after game name is what I played it on
Further to my previous blog with the promo marketing stuff (i.e. crap I give away to help promote the name but didn't really expect people to buy) I've now started selling shirts/clothes.
I've just release 4 so far to gauge interested. I only make a couple of bucks per shirt but it's money for nothing and every bit helps so I thought I'd see how they go.
Here's what I've done so far:
Shirt 1 - The C117 Games Logo
Nothing too exciting here. This is just for me and the other staff to wear around PAX. Doubt anyone'll know who we are but hopefully the loco-pollo (chickan) catches peope's eye and makes them wonder. Better get myself to the top of the Google search engine by PAX eh?!
Shirt 2 - HIVE Playable Characters
As the title suggests this is a shirt showing the four playable characters in HIVE. I chose to eliminate smoothing in the hope that it might appeal to the retro hipster crowd. This shirt is a sure indicator that I've done NO proper marketing research in my life... if I had there'd probably be something to indicate what the shirt related to! Oops, not even a reference to C117 or HIVE.
Shirt 3 - King Nick
If any of you ever played Nick's Quest (my first "proof of concept" game) you'd be familiar with King Nick. Based on Nickosaurus-Rex from this very sight he's a perverted sort of chap who has a tinge of the stupid. He's has a cameo in HIVE too however he's been bumped back to Duke because of what happened in Nick's Quest. Anyway this is a shirt about him.
Again... no reference to C117 Games or Nick's Quest. :S
Baby Growsuit - Future Chickan Slayer
Last but not least is this idea I had at 1am. Put it up for a laugh and, so far, it's been the only thing to sell. Lol. Bet these people don't even know what a chickan is!
Just having a play with some ideas and was wondering if you guys bought video game stuff. If so would you pay
$4 for one of these?
$14 for one of these?

This game was so good it brought me out of "reviewer retirement" and made me give the first 10/10 I've given since, I think, Warcraft 3!
Guacamelee is the latest venture from Drinkbox Studios and, by far, one of the greatest 2D platformers Ive ever played. Its a metroidvania style action-platformer dipped in Mexican culture, wrapped in Easter eggs and splattered with humour. It manages to balance difficulty with skill, humour with story and style with substance to create a perfect experience from start to finish.

My Recent Reviews
Lily going a bit overboard on the new Kinect toy. Indy's a little bit knackered afte rhis shot so he's having a time out on the couch.
Indy's first attempt at Sonic the Hedgehog. Didn't last long before Lily took the controller back as all he did was run right into those piranha guys. Green Hill Act 2
