UK Xbox 360 and Kinect developer Rare. You know – Kinect Sports, Banjo-Kazooie, Viva Piñata, Perfect Dark and more. Updates by Leigh, Emma [ER] or random guest.
Final working day of 2012 done. Time to head home with a nod to the big Rare Xmas tree standing guard at the door. Have a good one!
Right! Win this lot by telling us which two Rare characters would have the neatest and messiest signatures...
Today it is colder outside than the blackest pits of Peppy Pizza's soul. But we do get cool frosty patterns in some of the corridors leading to the barns.
Again! Half an hour to reply with the first word that springs to mind and #Rare30KTatFest tag for random wins!
For a chance to win everything here, reply with just the first word that springs to mind and tag it #Rare30KTatFest. One randomly picked winner gets it!
Who's that beaming up out of the pages of this month's issue of Develop (Nov 2012)? Why look - it's studio head Craig talking up Rare recruitment. Track a copy down if you can!
Pumpkin carving contest about to enter the judging phase at Rare. Main corridor is festooned with 'em. Like these...
Potentially the last leg of Caketober as designer Dale delivers rival Halloween products. Mallow tower-building attempt knocked Rashberry's eye off, so we left it.
Caketober continues! Premature Halloween style, still featuring Old Man Rashberry. The lime ones taste... kind of... not.
Rare drinks fridge, main corridor. A dark, brooding mystery. We must know: what happens if we ignore this dire warning?
Commencing Caketober. Thanks to our artist Ryan's original proof-of-concept Rashberry for support.
Another day begins... step through the doorway into adventure! Well, reception. Not that they're mutually exclusive. You could have countless zany adventures in our reception area.
"Going for pub lunch with VP artist Ryan. Piñata with the most votes in the next 10 mins will be doodled on a napkin with a big love heart."
At the time of leaving, Bunnycomb was narrowly ahead in the voting stakes. Never let it be said we don't deliver.
Bit damp on the Rare drive yesterday. At least I didn't bear right down Watery Lane. Turns out there's a reason they call it that.
"Funny old morning out there. Oppressive. Either a storm any minute or a UFO looming through the clouds like that bit in Independence Day."
Well, that answers that question. #chuckingitdown
Spooky Rare parking space 63 empty again today. An otherworldly chill and faint sinister laughter in the air, possibly Voice of Kinect Sports Peter Dickson hiding in a bush.
Found a pile of ropey old drawings from my schooldays in the attic at the weekend. This one stood out. Formative years fanboy...
Sneaked out for pub lunch, AKA Pie Day. Pie Day. Gotta get down on Pie Day. With actual pies for once! And a dog. Love a good dog pub.
Latest home for the itinerant Rare trophy cabinets: main corridor, next to the fruit. BAFTAs. Bananas. BAFTAnanas.
Photo opportunity! The full Kinect Sports: Season Two team (on the Rare side), minus some stragglers. Yesterday.
