While the Spicy Horse team enjoys a much needed rest during Chinese National Holiday, I’ve spirited away to Japan. Spent a few days enjoying some clean air, trees, and waterfalls in the scenic hills of Hakone Japan. In the peace and quiet I found it possible to really focus on design and writing for the next game. In Shanghai I was starting to feel distracted to a point of creative uselessness. Amazing what some trees can do to cure distractedness.
Now in Tokyo, preparing for a few days at Tokyo Game Show. Going to be talking to publishers about the growth of Spicy Horse as a viable worldwide game development studio. Have a game concept to pitch – a cool twist on the classic online kart racing genre. And finally, meeting with Spicy’s new publisher to discuss The Next Big Thing.
All in all, a good break from the office.
For those of you waiting for the next episode of Grimm – just a few more weeks to go. In the meantime, some pictures from the Japan trip on my Flickr Stream. Enjoy!
