One of the perks of working on a game based entirely on the making, selling, and consuming of chocolate is all that, in the course of regular business, we are sometimes compelled to consume the object of our own creation.
People have called it "snacking" but we prefer the term "market research".
Last week, a few of us were up in Seattle (the Space Needle is suitably magnificent and Rainier Tower defies explanation) for Casual Connect. For the occasion, we whipped up a custom-made surprise to hand out during the event.
We brought them chocolates! Chocolates with our name on them! Delicious and, we think, utterly appropriate.
As their site says, Casual Connect is:
Casual Games Association Events are the premiere events for the casual games industry with over 3,000 professionals attending Casual Connect Events each year. Casual Connect Seattle brings together the most talented and knowledgeable experts in the casual gaming field to further the casual games industry with the best of networking and learning.
That means that far too few (if any) of our players got their hands on these little delights but we wanted to share them with you as best we could.
Check 'em out!
One treat to rule them all...
What's better than a piece of chocolate? Many pieces!
Taken from GJ's secret stash...
In retrospect, we should have used those giant Willy Wonka type chocolate bars for this but then again, the left-overs might have been a bit too much to handle.
As it stands, we now have the oh-so-very-difficult task of finishing off the rest! (Except the ones with Peanuts in them. Bleh.)
