BETA***Test the new Emily!***BETA

As you have noticed, your registration on our beta board has to be activated by our admin. Because we initiated this operation ourselves, we decided it was easier to set a date so you had the time to register and for us to have just one date on which we activate accounts. Because there is still some misunderstanding, we wanted to let you know we are planning on activating your account from april 1 on. This means that as of tomorrow you will be receiving an email from our admin.

Just so you know, we are as excited as you are!

have a fun day!

I think i saw a puddy tat

In Emily's life there was room for a pet. After some discussion we thought a cat seemed the appropriate pet for her. We picked the last one (o). Or should we say the last one (o) picked Emily?

Delicious haircut?

Since a couple of years we have been trying to find ways to improve Emily. There's a big chance she'll cut her hair during the next game. Take a look at what we've been up to today...What do you think? Yes or No?

The Last Delicious?

At the moment we are working on Delicious 7 and I don't think there is another casual game outthere that has done the same. If you would have told anyone in our studio - way back when - there would be at least 6 sequels to this game, people would have left the building screaming and crying.

But we didn't.

People enjoy working on every new game even more than working on the previous one. How come? Because we feel there is progress to be made. And every single game is a chance for us to improve something in the game.

One thing we are anxious about improving is something called visual storytelling. If the story tells us that Emily is happy, it helps to show that Emily is smiling and - even better - if Emily also jumps for joy!
Simply drawing all these different poses would take us forever. Just look at a glimpse of how Emily feels about things.

A while ago we decided to create every character in 3D so we could give Emily and the entire cast more room to express themselves. Of course when it ends up in the game all characters maintain their typical 2D look. Otherwise it wouldn't look delicious anymore;)
At the moment we are re-re-doing all characters in 3D starting with Angela, Emily's younger sister.

So, as you can see Delicious 7 is not the last Delicious, simply because Emily is not finished yet. Far from it. We feel we have just begun.
