  • Bullfrog 2, Where art thou?

    Back in May of 2007, I announced that Bullfrog 2 development had begun.

Then in September, I shared with you a short movie […]

I created a new Xcode project to house our experimental code while we find our way […]

  • Bullfrog 2

    Bullfrog exceeded all my expectations. Even though it was only supposed to be a learning project and was developed with a tiny budget, downloads have been non-stop since it made its way on to the big Mac download websites.
