The Capy Crest

‘Tis the Dawn of a New Era, yet again.

A Seal of Quality + A Commitment to Crazy + A Celebration of All Aspects of Capy-ness That Tickle Our Fancies + “It’s Getting There”, in Her Majesty’s Latin. And also just because crests are kinda awesome. Huge thanks to Vic Nguyen, crest artist extraordinaire.

IGN just published the first portion of their TOP 100 MODERN GAMES LIST and we’re super jazzed to find out that exactly 2% of that list is made up of CAPY gaming goodness!

Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes came in at #81! The folks at IGN had some nice things to say about it:

Clash of Heroes doesn’t ape another game’s mechanics. This is a game all its own with a lot of depth and nuance to be discovered. Intricately detailed environments and smooth animation make Clash of Heroes a gorgeous endeavor. It’s a game to get lost in.

Meanwhile, Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP snuck in at #98! From IGN:

Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP is art. This point-and-click adventure is a near-perfect polyamorous marriage of brilliant 8-bit visuals, clever puzzle-solving, and an unforgettable soundtrack. This unity of sight, sound, and touch is something special.

Thank You SO MUCH, IGN! It’s an huge huge huge honor to be part of a list like that. Here’s hoping Critter Crunch hasn’t been listed yet ’cause it’s #1:) WOOP WOOP!
