Today was a very great day in the growth of the Draxhall brand....the crew visited the studio where our IP is in development...we loved the work..it was awesome...the guys over there do amazing work. the Nintendo Wii will never be the same after my game is launched...the partners who are involved make me laugh with a giddy of crazed lunatic....
the Silverbirch gang also did the NPlus game for the PSP and DS platform..the game is getting rave reviews and is fast becoming a cult classic. l have known the guys over at Silverbirch for years and it is amazing to see the idea become a reality....if the game they make of my stuff is half as good...l'll be happy.
l had an amazing day..we also put a green light on the next two ideas from my mind that would make excellent game....and toys...and a cartoon series....life is good.
hey, do yourself a favor....do it . don't talk about it.....
