Play Vidicule! Today Only!

Tuesday, September 29th, 2009


I worked on a little mini-game for YouTube called “Vidicule” that’s on their home page today — and today only.  Still, more people will probably see our game on YouTube’s homepage in one day than will see our games that have been up for years.  The Internet’s funny that way.
