I don't want a real job - Part 1.

There are many fantastic things about my job, but there are also many frustrations. Perhaps one of the most trying of these is when I get e-mails that read: “Hey Mark, I really loved DEFCON, Darwinia and the other one and I admire what Introversion has achieved. In fact I have my own game idea and I...

Rise of the machines

Yesterday I attended the inaugural meeting of the Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Games Network. This is a combined effort from Imperial College London, Bradford University and Essex University to take a bunch of white-coat wearing, blue-sky thinking academics and lock them in a room with a bunch of...

It's too hard, it's too easy, oh I don't bloody know!

So it was a few weeks ago that we held our first Multiwinia test at the Omega Sektor in Birmingham. Chris talked about this in his previous blog post, but I have been thinking more about the philosophy of the test and the problems associated with it. Here’s the deal: Video games take a long time to ...

Even Game Developers need Holidays!

Yes, it's that time of year again where Dad and I go walking in the Swiss Mountains. During this time there will be a suspension in delivery of physical units of up to three weeks. Normal service will resume on the 20th August. We know you'll bear with us as you'll still be able to play your downloa...

Growing your thighs and growing your business

It’s been a little while since I have written anything for the blog, so I decided it was time to put finger to keyboard and churn out some more wisdom. For those who don’t know, I have recently cycled the entire length of the country. I started at Land’s end on the 26th April and finished at John O ...

Drinking from a perfectly rendered Poison Chalice

The Introversion PR team recently bought my attention to an article on next-gen.biz. Roy Taylor from NVidia had argued that graphics were important. Not an unrealistic point of view considering his background, but some commentators have described IV’s games as being graphically “light” and as such I...

Gamevertising

One of the benefits of working, is that on occasion you get to travel on someone else’s dollar. When you own your own company this isn’t strictly true, but it still feels better handing over an IV card rather than my own. This week I went to the Casual Games festival in Amsterdam. The first question...

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.

It was New Year’s day yesterday, and through the throbbing I watched a classic film from the 80s that (in younger days) had me wearing my pants on the outside. The film tales the story of an alien (Duracell) rescued from the exploding planet of Krypton and sent to earth to fight for “Truth, Justice ...

It's all for Charity

Hey Everyone, I know you are used to Chris posting most of the news, but I’m being a bit cheeky and subverting the IV website to my own ends. For those who don’t know me, I work with Chris (the man behind the games) and do most of the biz side at IV. Anyway, I have been given the opportunity to take...
