So a little over a year ago, I turned 30. For my birthday a good friend, Aubrey Hesselgren, whom I used to work with on Goo! and before that on stupid Hoopworld, made me this Super Meat Boy Galaxy Prototype. I played it, it was awesome. I thought he did a great job with the controls and that is really saying something because I am very picky about controls. Below is a video:
Anyway, he wants to release it to the world. At first Team Meat's business development team told us that "3D is IN now" and that we would make loads of profit off releasing it along side Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. However, Aubrey, being the humble British man that he is instead insisted that it be ransomed for charity instead. Click here to Donate!
So that's what he's doing. The charity is called The Samaritans and they provide 24 hour confidential emotional support for people who are experiencing feelings of distress or despair, including those which may lead to suicide. They are British so I imagine their success rate for helping people off the ledge is much better than similar American institutions due to the fact that British people in general sound super smart and as a result if they are saying "Hey, you have everything to live for" in a James Bond-esque voice, one would be much more inclined to believe them.

In all seriousness though, lets reach this goal and get 10k of England money donated to The Samaritans. It's a good cause, it's a fun game, everyone wins here. If you can spend $3200 on Steam Sales this week (which, you know you will, you always do) you can surely spend $3180 and send $20 to a charity that helps people out. Think about it and...Click here to Donate!
Back to making Cat AI....not half as fun as it sounds...
