Well, the results are in, and most of you want to see the next four minutes–the result of this post goes along to our director, together with a few shocks from the official Jack Uzi Cattle-Prod. And now, this week’s Pick of the Week, meet the NEW Leland Crane, as played by Dean Vanderkolk, one of our recast of recharacters for the sake of expediency in filming. Wait until you see him dance.

Bringing… the Beginning!

Episode Zero of “The Adventures of Jack Uzi” has been gestating like an overdue pregnancy for a while now, and to continue the metaphor, I think the project’s water broke.

The game in all its glory!

As for the game itself, we’re going to be auctioning off the prototype, but the final version is available at The Game Crafter, our favorite print-on-demand game builders. All profits go toward the production budget, so if you want to see us succeed, pick up a copy!
