My name's Andrew J Smith and I make videogames.

Sounds simple, but I keep forgetting how complex it really is.

We’re barely 4 working weeks into the new year and already this is a bumper update! Let's cover it all off, but pay some specific attention to Project Mercenaries.

2020 was quite something. It's with a peculiar mix of pride and guilt that, looking back on one of the worst years in memory, Spilt Milk Studios has grown, succeeded, and laid the foundations for a bright future...

We're going into what went right and what went wrong on our politically-charge, for-charity DLC. It's time for honesty and transparency!

Strap in, because this is a perfectly-timed and completely open post mortem on the development and release, 2 weeks on, of our Tango Fiesta DLC. Black lives matter, f*** fascists. Goes without saying!

An eventful month for us; a new team member, laying a project to rest, and a deep dive on our next game!

We dive into some real behind-the-scenes info on our next project, plans for our existing games, King of Crabs success and plans for the future, as well as thoughts on community management as work for hire.

A very interesting take - especially about our brains I 've often thought the same, I 'd love to read more about our actual evolution versus our self-perceived evolution.
