Go Home Dinosaurs (Proudly) Delayed!

Most of the time a delay of a game is met with some hand-wringing, some doom-saying, some  finger-pointing, some cynical-…talking? Sometimes a delay means that a game is in a mess of development crud and the sheer enormity of issues has forced the developer or publisher to hold off.

Post PAX Round-up!

We all had a fantastic time showing off Go Home Dinosaurs! at this year’s PAX East. People love the game and have had some very complimentary things to say about it:

“…Go Home Dinosaurs is an absolute speculator game to play. The tower defense genre has never been so much fun. “

-Greg Laporte | GamerFitNation

“Go Home Dinosaurs is bringing more of the cutesy charm that Fire Hose debuted with Slam Bolt Scrappers”

-Tony Wilson | FrontTowardsGamer

I think standing by this fence makes me look introspective.

Compy, and the rest of the Fire Hose crew, is back from PAX!

Have you met Compy yet? If not you probably should!

Compy is one of several dastardly dinosaurs coming after your BBQ from our game Go Home Dinosaurs! Compy has been making the rounds, boasting his own flickr account, posting on our twitter account, and most recently infiltrating PAX East.

Several PAX goers took a Compy home with them after the show and they have been posting pics of Compy’s new adventures. Bookmark on Delicious Digg this post Recommend on Facebook
