Nailed to the Xtol (or Maybe Exel)

Finally… Finally Vania returns to Xtol, the developer that nearly killed her (in a very metaphorical sense). Meanwhile, Eric tries out Foma’s version of Xtol called Fomadon Exel.

Dev Party – Summer Rockets

One this, our first Dev Party of the season, we answer part of the question: what did we do on our summer vacation. In this case, we fired off model rockets with cameras attached to them.
