    Congratulations Mike! :cool: I wondered why the PopCap connection with Venice when you announced it. That explains it. Hope it's a good thing going forward for you. :)

    Thanks guys...

    Obviously, I can't reveal details, but I had worked with PopCap all through Venice and we have similar goals and philosophies about game design. So it's definitely a good fit.

    Congratulations!
    That might also explain some of the positions in the "popcap attacks clones" thread :rolleyes:

    Just to be clear IG was not part of that acquisition. I think it's also fair to say that we're all "pro Popcap" whatever that means. Please don't use this post to springboard this into another long discussion about Zuma :) ... Lets keep it about retro64. I just wanted to clarify that in case people were wondering if Popcap was running the board or something...

    Mike Boeh: Something is wrong with your site. I clicked Water Bugs to see the game page. Then I clicked BACk in my browser. Now clicking any other game (Venice, at top, for example) only reloads the home page.

    So what happens to your Retro64 login

    Congrats Mike!!!


    Did you use the PopCap framework for your latest game Venice?

    So does PopCap get your <Retro64> login at IGF or will it be retired?:D
