Space Kraken Wishes You A Merry Xmas And Happy New Year!

The incredibly hard working and skilled Rex "rexbox" Crowle has been kind enough to doodle this amazing premonition of what may be to come in 2010 - Space Kraken Vs. MiniSquadron! Go and see more of his creations on his website -, including his work on LittleBigPlanet for PS3 and also Grip Wrench - and about a million other projects coming right in your face in 2010!

So along with Space Kraken, I wish you all a Merry Xmas and Happy New Year for 2010! (represented by Left and Right Eye Laser respectively) (Click the image for MASSIVE Space Kraken):

Competition Winners

Well turns out MiniSquadron fans might not be using a camera phone (maybe it's because they use iPods) but anyway, here are the 3 winners. And because they dared to show their face they each win 2 Promo Codes! Hurray!

The first one was titled "Flying fat dude shunned by a kick" by @corleno on's kinda scary to be honest because it really does look like fat dude might be able to fly with that expression:

"Veecheech" looks like he may have passed out from drinking that special brew in his hand:

Thank you and good night!

Competition And Bits

Hey you know what? Let's hold a really bizarre competition for some free Promo Codes for the game. I have 10 (TEN!) promo codes for MiniSquadron to give away - and to win one all you have to do is

Take a picture of yourself doing your best "plane" impression.

Then tweet me your picture via twitpic/flikr/photobucket/youtube or whatever at my twitter ( or email ( [at] gmail com).

The winner will be the best 10 pictures judged by me at the middle (wednesday or thereabouts) of next week. Please don't send picture files if possible but link me with an online picture thank you! That way - the whole world can see you "fly" (ahem). Bonus points will be awarded for idiocy, hotness, daring do and general silliness (but PLEASE don't do anything completely mental).

I also want to update this site with a few news items. I've discovered I am in fact crap at any sort of sustained prose, so I will say these things as a series of brain farts, each one started off by an asian emoticon:

My friend Dom Clubb has a new blog and website here and here If you scroll down you can see he designed the MiniSquadron Logo and his general character work is ace!

MiniSquadron LITE is out - just in case no one knows. Seems like I didn't really attempt to market this at all - out of steam poop.

I've entered MiniSquadron into this thing: It looks really interesting and I hope anyone reading this will go and vote for me! To make it easier - click on these gigantor buttons I have made below:

Best Retro Reborn Game

Best Arcade Game

Best Game Graphics

Best Action Game

But feel free to choose your own category. In particular I would like to see it at least get nominated for "Best Productivity Enhancer".

I'll do my best to update with Part 3 of "How To Make MiniSquadron" when I get a bit of spare time (LOL)
