Addicting Indie Adventure Game – Spud’s Quest

By | September 29th, 2013|Categories: Games|Tags: , , , , , |

Spud's Quest is a fabulous indie adventure game created by Chris Davis from Derby UK, that takes you back in time as it was inspired by classics such as the Dizzy series, Zelda and Metroid. Talk about nostalgia, yes - I'm emotional! Chris has been interested in making games since he got hold of the ZX Sprectrum age 12, since then has taught himself to sprite and code games. Spud's Quest was successfully funded 120% on back in November 2012 on  Kickstarter with its 475 backers raising £6000 I first noticed this game from chat floating around on Twitter - It seems that Chris, who is on @SpudsQuest has done a wonderful job raising awareness on this Game.  Somewhere I saw someone ask him, how many on the Dev team - "Just me," he answered. I love Platform Puzzle Games, and the name "Spud's Quest" intrigued me,  so I had to check it out more -  I saw that @beetlebear of @indiegamehq was reviewing it on Twitch.tv and giving away keys - so I popped over to have a look, [...]

How to promote your blog

By | September 21st, 2013|Categories: Tips for Bloggers|Tags: , , |

So you've started your blog and wonder if it’s all worth the effort...You feel like you are just writing for yourself.  No-one is reading it, no-one is sharing it, and definitely no-one comments on the words that you bled painstakingly on to the page.  You just need to know how to promote your blog. Don't get discouraged it all takes time, if you build it they will come! You just need to shout a bit louder! How to get more readers for your blog. That’s the question often asked by bloggers, and even myself – I do get a nice amount of views on my website, I am very pleased my views especially as I am writing less and less now. It’s not a huge amount but it’s certainly enough to know that viewers are finding my posts and I am helping people.  However, we always want more people to visit our website and read our posts, otherwise why are we doing it.  Sometimes we do need to put in a bit more effort. SEO Of course the website needs [...]

How Buffer dealt with being hacked

By | September 17th, 2013|Categories: Social Networking Tools|Tags: , |

This weekend Buffer was hacked; spam tweets and facebook status updates were seen about weight loss on facebook pages, profiles and twitter feeds but did Buffer hide and hope no one would notice? No , they did the exact opposite.  Infact how Buffer dealt with being hacked has ended with everyone thanking them for their swift work and notifications. We have been a follower, fan and user of buffer for over two years now - Our sister blog Techieminx posted at the time Buffer added facebook back in August 2011. Founders Joel Gascoigne and Leo Widrich have always been very vocal, engaging, and friendly on the top social networks and they have always put the customer/client/business first. To Buffer: (n)Buffering is it to space out your tweets, if you cannot be online all day or you've read a post at midnight but you know that no one will want to read it then, so you can buffer it. How Buffer dealt with being hacked Buffer has actually given everyone a lesson in customer service, and of course they took advantage of [...]

Ironman Art

By | September 7th, 2013|Categories: Cartoons|Tags: |

I love the Ironman films, and just had to draw this one.   It took many hours but I did enjoy it. The Mark VI armor was created by Tony Stark to replace the Mark IV armor when it was discovered that the Arc Reactor could be powered by vibranium, which did not wear out or poison the user. It is similar to the Mark IV in appearance except for the triangular chest piece. Stark developed the new core via building a particle accelerator, then superheating the primary triangular core to a white arc, creating a source acceptable for the Arc reactor. Here are the lines it took to draw him, before he got the colours
