O Canada

Posted in Development on July 18th, 2010 by Ringwaul – 5 Comments

Around the start of July, Clonk-Karl and I were able to meet in person in the country I call home: Canada. Since I am currently the only developer living on the western half of the planet, it was a fortunate event that we were able to meet at all. But as luck would have it, his destination wasn’t too far off from my hometown.

During the visit, we played a few rounds of OpenClonk (and found a few dozen bugs), a few rounds of Clonk Rage (of which were melees, on average I lost miserably :] ), and even had a trek up one of our famous British Columbian mountains with another friend, Andrew (numbers is always better against wild animals). This was one smashing adventure… before we even got to the mountain I almost stepped on a snake. After hiking up a fairly steep trail, we were spotted by a black bear that had the civility to run away, which we found would be a good idea as well.

And possibly the most talked about part of the meeting: Doppelkeks. Well, at least by us Canadians. These little cakes taste damn good. And they don’t sell them in Canada.
