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.

As Demiurge approaches its 15th year of existence, the population of long-term employees continues to climb. (Funny how, like, time passes and stuff, isn't it?)

The equally strange but considerably less hulking Tom Lin makes a point

As the two strangely hulking figures, covered in black cloth, stood at the front of the game room last Thursday, filling the attendees of our weekly company meeting with curiosity and mild dread (which feels kind of like heartburn, oddly enough), Demiurge Creative Director Tom Lin reminded us of all of the arcane and splendid traditions our little company has established and maintained over the years.

It’s that time of year again! The time of year when our K-cups go all flavored, our sweaters go all ugly, and we honor the season with barbecue and competitive present-throwing.

Yes, it’s the holidays at Demiurge, and our celebration was bigger than ever as we’ve welcomed a number of new players to our team this year. The game room is starting to get a little small for us, frankly…

Nonetheless, over 40 of us jammed in there to enjoy beautiful barbecue from local favorite Blue...
