We put up a new sign outside our studio and our friendly neighbour, Bob at Lansdell Glass, asked if we'd named our business after the old one. What old one?: we asked. The building we're in was built in 1840; the bricks bear the mark of the broad-arrow, pressed in by the convicts who made them. Aside from this, all we knew of its history was that between 1900 and 1950 (ish) it was home to two posh ladies, and then in the 1950s it became an Italian restaurant - The Etna. It was, apparently, THE place in town to take your loved-one on a date. Cab drivers of a certain age still know where to go when you say "the old Etna", and their eyes light up when they tell of the nights they had there. Bob was kind enough to whip out some old photographs taken around the 1880s clearly showing the side of the building painted with a large sign. It read, HAWKINS BEEHIVE HARDWARE STORE. Old Mr Bill Lansdell smiled and said the coincidence was "spooky". We think so too.

Leaders in the global game development industry,
2K Australia gave us a warm welcome and made us feel right at home while we undertook an attachment in their v. cool studio. We went to heaven for one whole week and we didn't even have to die. Our big thanks to the team at 2K, and thanks also to Screen Tasmania for helping to facilitate our professional development there. Good timing meant we could also attend the Women In Games seminar at the Academy of Interactive Entertainment, and spend a day at GAME ON. How lucky was that.
