Phew! Greetings Glyo-Watchers! What a year it was in our strange universe. New life forms landed, Chaos invaded, and top-down battles were fought. Soul-searching ensued for many Travelers while Mercenaries took on new roles. Fantastic friends were made along the way, and in the end our core axis was altered by joint efforts. Did you spot those crazy Men from Outer Space? Incredible! One question remains- Where is Pheyden Now!?
Can you tell I just bought my niece her first Waldo Book? Anyway... on a personal note, I (marc, marcus, passcoder, resident young man) want to say how exciting and fun this year was for me, all thanks to the amazing people I work with and our loyal, dedicated fans. I'm honored to be one of Dark Santa's little helpers on a daily basis. Working along side Rich (Disasterpeace) was certainly a highlight, and witnessing him score our little world was beyond mesmerizing. Aiding Callgrim's Master in his path of bearded destruction is always a blast, even when late night excursions end in a gravy trap.
Pulling off a massive launch while Matt and Jesse flew to the other side of the world was exhilarating and horrifying in the same breath. During that time I started to work on something that still hasn't truly become what I intend it to, but I think some of you guys will appreciate it. If you haven't stumbled across it yet, check out SoulOfTheTraveler.com for some bonus Passcode content, including concept art, music, downloads and more. The SOT Soundtrack is truly something special and stands very well on it's own, once again due to the unbelievable talents of Rich Vreeland. Last Christmas we debuted Glyoforms, the 8-bit colorform-inspired scene builder, so it seems appropriate to post the SOT version, even if it's in beta form. The layering issue and a few other bugs will be worked out soon, as well as the long-awaited update to Glyaxia! Final thanks to some of my favorite artists across the world- Ralph, Walker, Don, Mori, Ayako, Morgan, PK, and so many others... you guys inspire at every turn. Big things on the Glyan horizon!!
