2012

Hi’s

I don’t know exactly when, but this will be the year we’ll launch this game. A small step for some, but for us it will feel huge. Personally this really feels like a dream coming true. Being able to create a game with total creative freedom and working with super nice people while doing so is just simply great.

Thanks to all that have been supporting us in the process. It’s super motivating to receive your comments, it is what keeps us going. There’s still a chunk of work left to do, but it is all going well and there is an end in sight. You’ll still have to wait a bit longer, but we’re trying hard to make it worth it.

Happy new year!
Richard Boeser

ibb and obb rated M (mature) in US while 7+ in Europe and 12+ for Japan.

ibb and obb before and after
We posted this on April 1st. Easy to miss when you read this at a later time so now you know.

What happened? We just received preliminary results from Sony’s localization procedure and though still not definite it’s too weird not to mention and leaves us baffled, slightly worried and yes indeed, smiling.

As said nothing is final here, but at this stage ibb and obb would be rated M for mature in the US, 7+ in Europe and B (12+) in Japan. The mature rating translates to age 17+!

The ESRB states: “…the production’s intentions and story remain unclear and open to many interpretations … main characters sexual preference is perceived as ambiguous and not suitable for all audiences … multiple metaphors presented that might provoke discussions on ethnic differences … that younger audiences experience as unsettling and disturbing…”

What they’re trying to say is that they think ibb and obb might be gay and that having black enemies is racist.

So all you US and Canadian kids who want to play, ask a parent to supervise and while they’re there they might just as well play along.

Just think about it. Mario eats mushrooms and kicks turtles : |
