Behind the Spud: Last Sited5 Jul, 2018
As you can see, we’ve spiced up the animations for the mission control. Here are other animations for different actions!
Other than switching up the animation, we’ve also uploaded more expressions so you’ll be able to keep track of your spies’ progress in missions or in training centres. It’s pretty cute, if I do say so myself – though Spyderman’s eyes shouldn’t be able to narrow like that.
Though the game’s really coming together, we’ve also been discussing how to keep things hyped up for players – A Spy Story?! is more strategic in nature, and has a unique Holy Potatoes! take on the spy genre. Hence, the first few minutes of gameplay may be quite contrary to expectations of the genre.
One way we’ve tried is to introduce an interesting cast (as you’ve seen, Souper Maria and Spyderman) instead of regular randomnised spies. Another would be the ability to plan and shape your own spy agency.
We’ve still got a month or so, so let’s try our best!

These past 5 or 6 weeks have been the most exhilarating, eye-opening, and mind-boggling weeks of the year. To start it all off, we attended Gamescom in Cologne, which was an amazing experience.

Behind the Spud: Pimp My Ship (Pt. 3)1 Mar, 2016
The brotatoes, spudettes, and I wanted to update everyone on our progress in the past couple of weeks and our plans for the next few weeks.

Our spud designers have been busy getting artwork done for GDC and so this post will most likely be word heavy instead of art heavy.Read more

Be A Potato Blacksmith And Tell Cloud His Buster Sword Is Too Big13 Jan, 2015
I was originally drawn towards Holy Potatoes! A Weapon Shop?! by its name and bright, cartoon art style. But then I found out that you can tell Cloud his Buster Sword is too huge and, well, now I love the idea of this game.
In it, you manage a team of potato blacksmiths. This means you get to forge various weapons for heroes as they stop off at your shop to kit themselves out for whatever manifestation of evil they’re looking to fight. Why you’re a potato is beyond me, but hey, if GLaDOS can be a potato then so can I.Read more

Fantasy puzzle game Spirit Horizon review3 Jan, 2014
Developed by Singapore’s Daylight Studios and published by IAHgames, Spirit Horizon is a shiny new fantasy match-3 puzzle adventure mobile game.
It is less like Candy Crush and more like Line Jelly. Gems in Spirit Horizon come in four different elements — fire, wind, water, and earth. Players must connect three or more gems to create combos to fight monsters. The more combos you have, the more damage you will be dealing to the incoming Mist monsters. Spirit Horizon also attempts to add in some interesting challenges to the gameplay. For example, gems could be burning under a mob’s special power. You can still burst the gems, but the side effect is that you will be dealt burn damage.Read more
11 Startups in Asia That Caught Our Eye28 Dec, 2012
The Gutsy Entrepreneur28 Dec, 2012
I love listening to stories of successful entrepreneurs. Like with a movie superhero, they are always wracked by pain and struggles, battling oppression by stronger forces. But the hero always emerges as the victor by sheer resilience and courage. I recently met up with a Singaporean entrepreneur, and his journey is very much that kind of story. Plus, his startup has all the ingredients to become very successful in the near future.Read more
