While I do realise this is a Club Penguin blog, I wanted to show off Mech Mice, a game some former Club Penguin employees are working on!
For those of you unfamiliar with Mech Mice and what it is, two of the Club Penguin founders, Rsnail and Screenhog, left Club Penguin in or around October 2010. Their goal overtime, with the help of others, was to create an online mutliplayer tactical war strategy game. Even before making Club Penguin Rsnail had wanted to create a war game, but decided to put a hold on that. Once leaving Club Penguin and wanting to do something new though, he felt like it was the perfect time. Since then, he and other employees of Rocketsnail/Hyper Hippo Games have been hard at work developing the game. Other former Club Penguin employees have hopped on board too, such as Businesmoose. The game is set to go into beta later this year. Today a neat behind the scenes making of the game video was uploaded, and since it comes from those behind Club Penguin I figured some of you might be interested in it. If you watch it, watch the whole thing…there’s an unexpected funny moment!
Since I’m sure I’ll be asked it here like I have been asked on Twitter, no I do not plan to make a Mech Mice blog. Maybe that will change in the future, but for now I’ll just stick to a small post about Mech Mice from time to time, like when the beta is released. The game sure seems very promising and fun!
