Insanity. That is the only way to describe the past two weeks! Development continues along with the balancing of new and exciting opportunities! To start, last weekend Particle Shield was demonstrated at the first ever Memphis Gaming Expo! It was great to see the expression on players faces when they played Particle Shield for the first time. Most importantly, the great feedback from players was invaluable and reassured the decision to bring Particle Shield to mobile environments. Below are two of the graphics from the expo!
