Just wondering whether there is any news on the Central Station project - announced almost a year ago now, must be looking good. It would be interesting for the artily inclined among us to catch up with it.
(and the fact that my proposal to 4iP was rejected on the basis that Central Station was 'already doing that' gives me a keen… Continue

I’m based in Edinburgh – and right now the city centre is in tatters due to the ongoing traffic congestion caused by our dearly beloved Tram project. And yes I live on the west of the city and work in Leith, in the east, so that trek across the city can at times be a challenge. The majority of people and press are dead against it, not least due to the amount of businesses disappearing or suffering at the lack of trade due to the inaccessibility of… Continue

The last time I posted on the blog, I mentioned I was in the middle of a really exciting project. Well, we've recently launched our project as a public alpha release. What, you may be wondering, is this exciting project?
It's called Muvizu 3D and it's a nifty (and very impressive) 3D animation application. Which basically means it allows anyone with 10 minutes, a little creativity and an interest (even a passing interest) in animation create a 3D animated clip. In the couple of… Continue

There is a lot of talk recently about the value of social networking sites. Facebook is said to be worth 10 billion(1), and even the relatively new (but hugely popular) Twitter has an initial funding package of 155 million US dollars (2). If Twitter’s investors hope for an average return of 7-8 times, that makes it another billion-dollar social networking site.
But where does this value come from? One answer is the sheer amount of data involved. Google recently announced University… Continue

(First Published at Ace Gamez
) Admitting you were wrong takes a lot of guts in this industry. Any developer willing to throw its hands up and come clean about its shortcomings is to be applauded. But rather than champion these studios, the typical reaction is one of scepticism from gamers who feel burned by a lacklustre title or by promises the developer failed to keep. Just look at Sega which,… Continue

(as always you can get a better read on our Tumblr blog bleeppurple.tumblr.com)
A while back we were asked to do some research and present our thoughts on the market for digital content in India.
We should have politely declined, but we didn’t, lured by the power of the Raj we topped our Skype accounts and called India!
Now we at Bleep Purple have never been a fan of Market Intelligence or as we like to call it ‘future gazing’ because in general most… Continue

(Originally published at Ace Gamez
) Summarising the entire back story of the Tekken series is a massive task thanks to the fact that we never really know which character’s ending is considered canon. Plus, the whole ‘daddy issues’ chess game of power between the Mishima bloodline has more twists, turns and double entendres than an interview with Hideo Kojima. It is seriously convoluted and, at times,… Continue
