After a moderately successful career in commercial architecture, Niz has struck out on his own as a writer and illustrator, and hopes to publish some neat books in the near future. Notwithstanding his daily regiment of prose, the lad also takes time out to check on the latest games courtesy of Joystiq and Destructoid, among others, and currently gets his dose of Canabalt in HD whenever the need arises. Motion sickness has made playing FPS a nightmare, though fortunately third-person action is still okay, and a soft spot for point-and-click adventures, platformers, side-scrollers and good story-telling will, without a doubt, keep this gamer active for many, many more years to come.
Goodbye 2009, hello 2010! Another year quickly passes, and my gaming for December ended with the finale to the Tales of Monkey Island series, Rise of the Pirate God. Truly a memorable ending, with a surprise twist. The Voodoo Lady... what a schemer! I seriously didn't see that one coming.
So its twelve days into January and I'm going through Destructoid when I see this contest organised by Anthony Burch. The prizes? An Overgrowth/Natural Selection 2 pre-order sale pack for nine lucky winners, courtesy of Wolfire Games and Unknown Worlds, and all you have to do is draw, or photoshop, rabbits kicking some alien ass. As in, violently. Did someone say 'drawing'? And win prizes? Well, hello, contest! That there picture you're looking at is my entry, and let me say, it was a tough competition. Lots of great (and witty) submissions.
Alas, there can only be nine winners... and fortunately, I was one of them! Woo hoo! Looking forward to getting my hands on these awesome-looking games. Now that's the way to kick-off the new year!
