PoPulus is Live!

I can't believe we forgot to update this site with our Development Blog. PoPulus has been live since 3:30pm Sunday, January 30th, 2011. Here is a big shout out to the rest of the Dev Team!

The Development Team has decided to continue development on the game going forward (although we may change the distribution license). We are still working on our development pattern, but a couple of us are leaning towards Small Monthly Game Jams or 1Day Agile Sprints.

Anyway, keep checking the Blog Site for development and game updates. And keep checking back here too, help us get to a Page 1 listing (prizes for those who can prove they helped)!

To the GGJ Org - Thanks again for another off-the-hook Jam.

To the rest of the GGJ Jammers - We all hope you had as great a time making your games as we did ours. Now just sit back, relax and check out other team's games.

To the rest of the World - Why are you still reading and not playing the game yet, damn it!
