Cool news again for Pumpkin Carver. Microsoft decided to feature it in their Shocktober section of the XBox dashboard as a holiday promo! Hopefully this will give Pumpkin Carver a bit of a “rise from the grave” before Halloween, since it’s a nice spot to promote for people to get their hands on it. Just when I thought Pumpkin Carver had run its course, they pull it back into the game!
And I’m in good company too! Since Pumpkin Carver came out, another developer named MatthewM has released his well-made pumpkin carving app Pumpkin Chop which has also found a place in the Shocktober promo. It’s awesome to see Microsoft promoting these seasonal Indie games/apps and I’m glad to be part of it. Also if you’ve already checked out Pumpkin Carver, and perhaps want to try something a bit more “advanced” (cut by cut instead of interchangeable pieces) I do encourage others to check out Pumpkin Chop, as Matthew did quite a fine job on it!
