Posted by Data in Cortex Command - July 20th, 2009

Hello everyone, it’s been a while! Here’s a bit of an update:

Data Realms just attended the most excellent indie game jam No More Sweden in Malmo (in, yes, Sweden)! Here are some photos from the madness:

Our compo submission was a quick and dirty Cortex Command mod called BANJO KABLOOIE, based on the random keywords “Pants“, “Gravity“, and “Banjo“. We might polish it up a bit and release it here shortly.

In other news, Prom and I will be working together in the same physical place for most of August, so there should be some massive progress done on the campaign content. Even though we have collaborated online for the last five years, we have never actually met in person yet. So you can imagine the amount of awesome that will come out of being in the same room!

Stay tuned..

  7. Ben Hymers - # July 20th, 2009 at 2:37 pm

    Hah, brilliant! I actually work for Rare, the guys that made Banjo Kazooie. I’ll tell the chaps about this when I go in tomorrow πŸ™‚

  8. zalo - # July 20th, 2009 at 2:55 pm

    It cool after all these years, that you and Prom are going to finally meet in person.

  9. Fardale - # July 20th, 2009 at 4:15 pm

    But what if you dont like each other in person! the whole of the CC universe could be at stake! AAAAAAAHHAHAHAHAHAHH!

  10. CrazyMLC - # July 20th, 2009 at 4:16 pm

    Cool, you and Prom will finally meet.
    But I think you should also worry about augmenting the current content along with adding more.

  11. Smithno13 - # July 20th, 2009 at 4:54 pm

    Cant wait to try yalls submission. Sounds like epic CC crazyness.

  12. Tomaster - # July 20th, 2009 at 4:54 pm

  19. Apnea - # July 21st, 2009 at 10:24 am

    Cool story.

  20. Gotcha! - # July 21st, 2009 at 10:41 am

    That’s music to my ears! Now if someone would just happen to be around to lock the door behind you. I am sure we can slide some food underneath the door now and then until CC’s finished. πŸ™‚

  21. MUCH PEOPLE - # July 21st, 2009 at 10:44 am

    need MORE AI in CC, all people waiting charming AI!!!

  22. CrazyMLC - # July 21st, 2009 at 3:14 pm

    I like Gotcha!’s idea.

  23. Will - # July 21st, 2009 at 3:54 pm

    Nice update. Thanks! πŸ™‚

  24. Mooseral - # July 21st, 2009 at 10:03 pm

    Sounds good to me.

    I don’t know, has Prom ever worked on a project this seriously? His work has always been of the highest quality, that’s certain.

    Also, apparently much people waiting charming AI. Much people can’t be wrong. But there is something charming about self-kungfu-AI, in itself πŸ˜€

  25. LowestFormOfWit - # July 22nd, 2009 at 2:22 am

    I hope that when Data and Prom collide, B24 is left in the wake of the shockwave.

  26. Krumbs - # July 22nd, 2009 at 6:59 am

    I look forward to see some more campaign. Especially too see some new stuff like different dirt types and backgrounds rather than the same old stuff.

  27. iKPο£Ώ - # July 22nd, 2009 at 7:06 am

    CANT WAIT UNTIL CC is done. MUST HAVE CC! CC! AaAaAaAaaaaaAAaaaahH!
    You two must be excited to meet each other!

  28. gismo - # July 22nd, 2009 at 7:40 am

    sweden is ***

  29. anonymous - # July 22nd, 2009 at 11:40 am

    LOLZ at the wireframe sex game, wtf is that?

  30. LowestFormOfWit - # July 23rd, 2009 at 1:34 am

    Also, we desperately need CC to stop running just off the CPU. Optimization should be the next big feature!

  36. Mikkel - # July 27th, 2009 at 9:48 am

    I think you oughta be more like Toady, developer of DF. He releases long, interesting updates nearly every day. This dev log is updated like every third month.

  37. ZNESS - # July 27th, 2009 at 7:16 pm

    release banjo kablooie

  38. Blank - # July 28th, 2009 at 10:38 am

    Do you have a twitter we can follow?

  39. Blank - # July 30th, 2009 at 11:23 pm

  40. iKPο£Ώ - # August 1st, 2009 at 10:27 pm

    Comon Data, its august! I’M WAITING FOR MORE! Where’s my Build 24?

  41. Blank - # August 7th, 2009 at 10:49 am

    Things like Build 24 can’t be rushed out the door.

  42. Allen - # August 11th, 2009 at 3:41 pm

    I heard that

  43. SunnyKatt - # August 15th, 2009 at 7:51 pm

    Hey! #42-Allen – Posting up virus sites isn’t nice, you bastard. Don’t click his link. πŸ™

  44. Allen - # August 16th, 2009 at 6:08 pm

    i’m pretty sure it’s just a site for a fundamentalist church with insane ideas about sweden and most everything else, didn’t know about viruses. Apologies.

  45. SunnyKatt - # August 18th, 2009 at 4:46 pm

    It’s ok – I figured you wouldn’t have known – but when visiting the site my computer got blasted with warning messages. πŸ˜›

    Maybe it’s just me.

  46. Random - # August 21st, 2009 at 4:28 am

    I’m really trying not to click on Allen’s link… Jesus the pressure is killing me…

  47. Ran D. Show - # August 22nd, 2009 at 12:23 pm

    Interesting I’ve wanted some new campaign content BRING ON THE CRABS!

  48. Fooby - # August 22nd, 2009 at 1:05 pm

    Cant wait for BANJO KABLOOIE. Sounds like a crazy actor with exploding pants.. or such.

    (Off Topic: 1 month to H3: ODST ^^)
