Don’t wanna be indie, at Fayju we want to make ‘Big Ass’ games with Amazing Frogs in.

We’re Fayju, the team who made Amazing Frog? and we are the smallest type of team you can get…two people. Fayju is me, Gaz Bushell ( @fayju ) and Hal Jackson ( @feckwagon ).

Zurich 2008 – The Nova trials

In 2008 squidsoup went to the Technopark in Zurich to experiment with ETHZ’s Baby Nova Grid of LED lights. Over the year that followed we then created two exhibition works Stealth and Discontinuum specifically for the Nova grid. It was a great opportunity to explore the possibilities of working with a LED grid. We had […]
