rpereyda writes: NAMCO BANDAI Games' ShiftyLook (the website doing its Galagawebcomic and Bravomancartoon) launched browser-based video game character high school dating sim Namco High yesterday. Backstory for the game is on the official website, but in a nutshell, a gender neutral cousin from the Katamari series winds up in detention at Namco High and can interact with other students, join clubs, and go on dates.
Early reviews call the game wacky and funny. The game's creative director is none other than Homestuck creator Andrew Hussie, and has contributions from a number ofnotableonlinecreators.
Full disclosure: I produced the game.
Really? Wow. I've never had a company claim they have a SAS70 type II (or whatever it's called now) but refuse to release the actual report... that just seems so non-sensical. Not having a SAS70 isn't the end of the world, but lying about it certainly would be.
