Recently on Offworld, Ragdoll Metaphysics columnist Jim Rossignol sat down with Introversion co-founder Chris Delay, to learn more about the foundation and growth of one of gaming's first most successful indies, how they managed to game the pirates by releasing fake torrents, and how their upcoming Subversion will procedurally model entire cities.
We also started voting on last month's contest to write a new legend for one of the cards in EA/Phenomic's real time strategy PC game BattleForge, so head over to have your say on that.
And, we rounded up the best of gaming's April Fools posts: World of Warcraft's Pimp Your Mount, Maxis's all-ASCII Spore rogue-like, Hideo Kojima's Metal Gear surprise, Wolfire's Small Tank, Microsoft's rhythm-yodeler Alpine Legend, and the Zeno Clash team's new Apple II point and click adventure.
Elsewhere, we saw thrift store paintings enhanced with giant katamari, a new art-project rhythm game that's all light and konga drumming, a papercraft version of Toshio Iwai and his Tenori-On (!!!), a chiptune remix played through a hacked VGA adapter, and the first sing-along video of PopCap's Plants Vs. Zombies.
Finally, we saw Hudson's slice of gaming history, the Shooting Watch, come to the iPhone, and their amazing video showing how tower defense games are like conveyor belt sushi, a Japanese meme based on a Goldeneye glitch, a new T-shirt where DaVinci does Mario, last year's promised WiiSpray virtual graffiti finally in motion, and, most wonderfully, LittleBigPlanet's (very) anatomically correct Sackboy.
