I Love It When a Plan Comes Together

... or even multiple plans!

Over the last couple of weeks I've made huge progress on the arcade cabinet, and I've even got back to working on GravSheep, which is now code and asset complete for the 360, bar any bug fixes. I still have another 20 or so levels to design, but that's pretty simple using the editor I made for the job.

I've come to the conclusion that I'm not cut out for woodworking. Dad ended up doing the majority of the cutting, and left me to do the planing, filing and sanding which I was quite happy with! I'm very pleased with the results so far, and now waiting for some decent weather to get the cabinet painted.

The stand was my own idea, and is simply a gas-lift base from a round bar table bought cheaply from Argos. It looks pretty swanky to me, and gives the added flexibility of being able to adjust the height for standing/stool play, or for desk-height sitting play.

In other news, we finally have the masters for Origin: Unknown within our grasp! Release will hopefully be this weekend for free download at least. CD copies will be forthcoming.
