Welcome to the new server! is now being hosted by the great people at Ion in Luxemburg (who have been hosting The Endless Forest game server on behalf of Mudam for years now).

Things may be a bit rough in the beginning. Some posts may have gotten lost during the difficult transfer process. Please post a comment if you catch an error.

Nice to see you again! :)

1999 called… it wants it’s back!

We are part of an online exhibition on called:


Alright, now I am going to use some antiquated terminology… try to stay with me….

We once made a “splash page” for this website called Rhizome. It was a website about “” don’tchaknow…

Oh lots of websites had splash pages back then, it was a sort of introduction to the site you were about to experience. Of course, sites were a very different thing in my day….
People used this coding language that was known as “HTML” back then.
YES we just coded that up in your basic “text editor” we didn’t have or need these fancy-schmancy Web 2.0 thingamabobs or CSS or CMS and browser uploaders or whathaveyou… we just coded it up, uploaded the page to the server, and off it flew!
Now, this so-called “” was very very interesting stuff…
And it was ART… well… at least to the Internet of the day it certainly was! We figured a new medium deserved a new kind of artwork. One that was about the medium and FOR the medium! We knew, even then, that this Internet thing was going somewhere! So what if we had to walk in the snow, uphill, without shoes, to get there. We liked it FINE! 😉

So, take this journey to the heart of the turn of the century internet with this selection of pages from our humble selves, then better known as Entropy8Zuper!, and some of the all-time greats!

Artists include: Annie Abrahams, Daniel Garcia Andujar, Ben Benjamin,

The Path to Russia

Компания ““, крупнейший издатель компьютерных и видеоигр в России, выпустит русскую версию The Path в странах бывшего Советского Союза. Это значит, что
жители Беларуси, России, Эстонии, Латвии, Литвы, Азербайджана, Грузии, Казахстана, Кыргызстана, Молдавии, Таджикистана, Туркменистана и Узбекистана первыми в
мире смогут купить произведение Tale of Tales в обычных магазинах!
Российская пресса и публика проявили немалый интерес к The Path. В прошлом месяце было опубликовано подробное превью в “Стране Игр“, в свежем номере
Игромании” есть материал об игре на двух страницах. Также вышли превью на сайте Stop Game и статья в PDF-журнале “Охота на точки“. И это наверняка неполный
Дата выхода русской версии пока неизвестна, но мы сделаем все возможное, чтобы вы получили ее как можно быстрее.

The Graveyard on Steam

The Graveyard on Steam

Steam does a bit for independent game developers what an art gallery does for fine artists. It offers a commercial channel and, perhaps more importantly, a certain recognition of your work. At least that’s how it feels sometimes when people congratulate us when getting our game on Steam.

The uncanny, the unlikely, the strange, the incomprehensible, the silly, the crazy, the irresponsible, the weird has just happened: our little pièce de controversy The Graveyard has just been published on Steam. This sort of completes the project. The snake bites its own tail. The punchline is out. It brings a tear to our eyes.

Even if you had already purchased The Graveyard here (many many thanks for that!), we think you should buy it again on Steam. Just for the heck of it. Just to see “The Graveyard” in between “Half Life 2”, “Left 4 Dead” and “Counter-Strike” in your games list. For 4.99 US Dollars. It’s worth it!

The Path release date

The Path will be released on 18 March 2009, exactly ten years after Auriea and I met in person for the first time and launched our first collaborative project. We are planning to repeat this event in one month from a room in the exact same hotel in San Francisco, with The Path. There will be no witnesses.

To celebrate the announcement, we have opened a new website for The Path:

go to

with a personal page for every Red Girl, screenshots, videograbs and quotes from the game and pictures of the creators as teenagers!!!

The Path will be available for purchase and download form our own website, from Direct2Drive and from Steam. As of March 18. There’s a countdown here. 😉

10 years

If you stick around here long enough, you’ll find that Michael and I are pretty big on anniversaries and holidays. We have many personal anniversaries, we make up new ones all the time ;), and we celebrate them all. Today marks the 10th anniversary of the very very very first project we eeeeeeeevvvver made together. A website called ‘skinonskinonskin.’
It is basically a website of interactive loveletters. The site is still online, though it’s difficult if not impossible to view, and the site has several complex stories behind it and attached to it. But that’s for the archeologists now. For you, I have some of the images.

and for us…. I wish a lifetime.
