Meta4orce nominated for a BAFTA!
When I launched this blog back in August with a post about BLOC's animation / gaming crossover Meta4orce, I had no idea how positive the response would be. Thanks to [draw.logic], PaperVision3D Blog, Flash Bookmarks and Richard Legget my post picked up thousands of views and loads of great comments, including a "congratulations" from PaperVision teamer Ralph Hauwert. I've also had the honour of fielding game-design questions about the project over at Adventures in Primetime and the awesome Brainy Gamer blog.
Anyway, I've just found out that Meta4orce is nominated for a children's BAFTA! I'm dead chuffed; this is great news for a project that looked for a while like it would sink without a trace. With competition like Little Loud/Channel 4's Bow Street Runner, and Amanita Design's awesome BBC educational game Questionaut, we have no chance of winning, but just to be nominated is a great feeling. UPDATE - Bow Street Runner won it - well done!
By the way, don't forget to support my NO JOY? campaign to get joystick support into Flash!
