GemWay Work Hiatus Announced
S.P. Sour stated that due to hardware problems, his Playstation 3 was no longer usable for GemWay work.
This means that work on the Fun Machine, Scarily Sentient, games, and other will be put on hold until the problem is resolved.
T-Games Network Console Integration Announced
Around May 8th, Billy Anderson stated that all T-Games consoles would be receiving an update to add T-Games Network support.
These comments were made on lbp.me: "The next NeXT update is scheduled for mid-late July. It will include support for the T-Games Network (which will become a global feature for all major T-Games consoles in time - including the GameExpo and Fun Machine) as well as other things which are not yet to be released."
"For GameExpo's 3rd birthday the GameExpo III will be getting an update :)"
Game Graduate Introductory Cutscene Published
May 3rd, a cutscene level in LittleBigPlanet 2 was published on S. P. Sour's earth for the new service Game Graduate.
It's important to note that, while technically provided by GemWay, the service is classified as a regular T-Games service. The level can be found here.
That's all we've got down for May.
June should be more productive, we hope :)
