First and foremost for Julia and I, we've got our first child - a baby boy - on the way. That's right, the zany influence of male Carrolls looks set to continue. We couldn't be more thrilled about our upcoming addition and daddy-to-be will be sure to get him playing games as soon as possible.
As if expecting a baby wasn't exhausting enough, we also moved premises during the year from inner-city Rosebery to the beachside suburb of Maroubra. It's amazing how distracting the smell of the beach can be.
We haven't just been expanding our family and relocating offices. We've also been doing 'real' work. Anthony has been putting the final touches on the Monster Town artwork and it looks nucking futs! He's produced a video clip with samples of the artwork, which you can view here. The game is going to be epic for fans of vampires, werewolves, zombies and badass soldiers.
We've also been busy promoting our existing games in Australia and around the world and have more stockists than ever. On special request from our great friends at Mega Games, Anthony made a guest appearance at the Heroes and Villains Pop Culture Expo on 25/26 August 2012. He enjoyed his time so much that he had to share it with everyone in this article. Esdevium Games also continues to distribute and market our games throughout Europe and the world, expanding our fan base even further beyond our shores.
Lastly, for those of you who have been keeping up with our sporting endeavours, the 93 Made Games oztag team won its second premiership for the year. Instead of the come from behind victory that took the team to its first ever premiership, the boys and girls smashed their opponents without remorse.
We're looking forward to catching up with you soon and show-casing our new additions, whether they be games, artwork or even babies! So hang tight and keep your eye on the prize - we'll be back in your eye before you know it!
