It’s been a crazy (taxi) month here at Demiurge Studios. June 1 saw the launch of our latest mobile game, Crazy Taxi Gazillionaire. (Try it out for yourself on iOS and Android.) In this game, you become a taxi tycoon and stick it to The Man (in this case, The Man is Edelbert Von Güber of Prestige Megacorp, a soulless rideshare company) by building your own fleet of crazy taxis driven by an army of diverse drivers.

The reviews are in, and people like us! Thanks, people! We’re...

Supplly lines are getting longer and more difficult to maintain.

We're having a bit of a welcome-pie glut.

Demiurge has been growing lately. In the past few months, in fact, it feels like the whole company has eaten some kind of magic mushroom and ballooned to twice its size (only to shrink again when failing to avoid turtles and fire-breathing sewer-pipe plants).

The anticipation was high in Demiurge’s seemingly-ever-shrinking game room after co-founder and -conspirator, Tom Lin, called a “surprise” company meeting at 10:30 am.  

Normally nobody likes the sound of “surprise company meeting,” but then most folks already knew what was happening and were unconcerned, even cheerful!

This also could have been the result of surprise company meeting pastries, however. (Thanks again, Basil Tree Catering!)

 

Yes, we were gathering for yet...

This year's Halloween at Demiurge went about how you would expect at this point if you are one of our blog devotees. There was way too much candy, some ridiculous decorations, zero trick-or-treaters, and a few die-hards in the office who went the distance with costuming.

Now granted, for some, "the distance" is "back to the dev space to grab that squid hat we have lying around," but for the most part, there's some serious dedication going on here, so naturally we held a contest.

In the heat of July, in the wilds of Gloucester, MA, at the height of Pokemon fever, Demiurge had its first-ever summer beach party. This was an interesting feat of logistical gymnastics, involving a Uhaul van, some grills from Amazon, a whole lot of shopping, and some early arrivals running interference at our picnic area. (We got a permit to have our party there, but given that nobody had marked it, random people were coming in, setting up shop, and defending their territory like...
