Codies Weekly Update 17-04-14



April 17, 2014

We know what you’re thinking… “What day is it? The Codies Weekly Update is a Friday thing, which must mean tomorrow is Saturday…”. Well no it’s not, sorry, today is Thursday and this is the slightly earlier than usual Codies Weekly Update.

Well the Met Office was reporting a storm over Codies HQ but it turns out I was wrong, it’s actually been quite sunny. So sunny that we considered downing tools and going for a picnic yesterday. We decided against it in the end and figured that we should probably try and finish one of these games we’re working on.

This Week’s Big News

You’ll get nothing more out of us than that, go follow GRID on Twitter, Facebook and Google+ if you want to know more.
