Wow! I hadn't heard of the Clyde parties. Cooooool!
[Edit: Oh, wait, maybe this was THE party I heard of and didn't get invited to.
It's smaller than I expected...]
Dang, that was a cool video.
The development of OKX and Clyde overlapped by about 4 months, I would guess. We've been working on Clyde a long time. But we didn't start Swat until a while after OKX was done. In the mean time, a lot of the OKX team worked on a publisher-funded project that's still not released. Then we started Swat, so that overlapped Clyde by a few months.
Now that Clyde is done, some of the Clyde team is working on other projects, some are working on Swat, and we're trying to figure out what happens *after* Swat. Always gotta be planning ahead...
For me, there's almost no vacation time, but I'm OK with that. JKN needed some rest, but he bounces back fast. The happy launch of Clyde helped get him off his lazy butt and back to work. Most of the rest of the team takes some time off after crunch times. We have relatively regular free-lunch party-like things, and movie outings and whatnot. We try to make it a nice place to work.
