Monday Madness!

Alright, so it's not really a mad house here on Monday...I just thought the words sounded good together. But in a way, there is reason to be crazy excited! Today is the last day to pre-order The Deadly Device, and the last day to be entered into the Adventure Matters contest, because tomorrow is when The Deadly Device hits all major retail stores! Whoo-hoo! It is almost released out into the wild! Yay! Extra note: The Deadly Device screen saver is now available and ready to download here. (~.^)

Despite what you think may be going on here...(Monday stuff: phones ringing off the hook, people ferociously typing up emails, the printer printing a gazillion pieces of paper, employees running in circles, talking loudly across cubicles...you know, that busy stuff?) In fact, today has been rather mellow, so today's blog title should be Mellow Monday instead.


This was our biggest excitement today: Testing out our new toaster oven with yummy bagels that our CEO brought in today! Yep, our old one that we've had forever was simply not working properly (and I've had a few angry-faced staring contests with it in the past for burning my toasted cheese and pepperoni sandwiches). So by request, our CEO, Stuart, ordered us a new one. Isn't it shiny? It cooks and toasts rather nicely, although...as you can probably see in the picture above, I slightly burnt my blueberry bagel. I guess I need to learn how to work this new machine... >.<

Weekend puzzle cracked like an Easter egg! Identify each game cover art, and then count the respective numbers in that game title to get your letter. Here are the games' artwork listed left to right, top to bottom:
[The Haunted Carousel
Secrets Can Kill Remastered
The White Wolf of Icicle Creek
The creature of Kapu Cave
The Final Scene
Alibi in Ashes
Trail of the Twister
Legend of the Crystal Skull
The Phantom of Venice
The Deadly Device
The Captive Curse
Shadow at the Water's Edge]

Once you have those, count the letters to get this answer: [Halloween Blog Video]. Which, as I mentioned before, is just a small video...nothing big. ;)

Great way to start the week:) officially releasing a new game to the world! I started playing DED with my sister (the friends thing didn't work out), no words to describe it! I truly believe this is your best game ever! Great graphics, music, characters...on and on! You outdid yourself, wonderful work!
Cheese and pepperoni? Do you know how hungry you just made me?:) That sounds SO good right now. Anyways, enjoy your new toaster oven:)

Liking the new toaster. You should do a vlog of you pretending to play with the toaster oven, and then when you press the wrong button, it leads to an explosion. In the next shot, we see the "You have made a fatal error" screen from the Nancy Drew games. When you click "yes" to retry, you're back where you were before. You're just about to hit the button and you think, "Wait a minute...have I been second chanced?!"
It should be like a "You know you play Nancy Drew too much when...?" kind of thing.
And I'm very excited for Deadly Device!!!

Mmmm your bagels look tasty! Our family now has a toaster oven instead of a microwave... long story I'll spare you of hearing. LOL Ours isn't as 'shiny and new' as that one though! It looks lovely.

So funny because as you described phone ringing off the hook and you yelling across the room I totally pictured it! And it's not chaotic?! Amazing.

I have a question for you Little Jackalope, our family just finished DED and as usual the second chance sayings were HILARIOUS! So clever in fact that I'm beginning to wonder just who creates them? The person who writes the games? Or does everybody in the office get to put their two cents in? Have you ever thought of one that goes in a game?

@Future HeR Animator -- Yay! Glad to hear you enjoy it so much! :D Toasted cheese and pepperoni sandwiches are among my favorites. ;)

@Hannah -- Lovely toaster, indeed, why thank you! We are quite Proud of it. XD

Also, I believe it is our Writer, Nik, who comes up with all of the Second Chance sayings. I absolutely LOVE them, too! I agree, they are sooo funny! Nik is awesome. Hmm, I've never thought up a second chance saying...but that actually might be fun!

@NANCYGEEK -- Yes there is food, actually it's candy. You kind of have a room in the lab, and yes, you go to sleep to switch the day to night and night to day. ;)

Thank you for answering my question Little Jackalope. Somebody has a PBM game on the message boards where we think up second chances, most the time none can compare to what is actually in the game but sometimes it's pretty funny! So it just made me wonder 'who does the REAL ones?'

You know, that would make a cool conteset, letting somebody think up a second chance and have it in the game. :) At least I think it would be fun.
