Whoever came up with that metaphor for team management deserves a trophy. Or a pizza. Or a pizza trophy.

Not that there aren't perks to being a team leader, of course; it's great seeing all the pieces of the puzzle fit together and it's fun to order people around sometimes. The downside is that you never get any peace. Especially if, say, you were also the person on the team responsible for working out how the mod tools worked, and making the tech demo.

I don't begrudge my team asking me questions, don't get me wrong. This is my job on the team, to fix problems they have. (And to export tricky things into the CryEngine, like weapons.) It's just a lot of pressure, and I'm not that brilliant at responding to pressure. I'm learning though, and the team is already gelled and tearing ahead on the project.

Hopefully we'll get the ModDB page up soon to show you all.

@Totalbiscuit Really enjoyed the review show. Was interested to see GameTheory didn't make it into youtube category but it is a little niche

@OddworldInc Heard managers discussing a FeeCo meeting, am now concerned about Glukkons beseiging our offices. (Good thing we have keypads)

@BBCOne Both caused by manipulative editing too, which is worrying. (Apparently the spec said fully built skeleton, but they didn't show it)

It seems @BBCOne is trying to court controversy. First binned cakes, then flat-pack skeletons. Be careful what you wish for Auntie Beeb!
