We have got another piece of cool fan art for you today. Jan's artwork in this piece has been drawn onto some stones. As you can see, it is Steamlands based! :)
If you have any fan art you have made about Nitrome please do send it in! We love everything we get sent especially if it is our work applied to something we have never seen before. We will feature the best,
most striking and most unusual pieces in our blog.
We have been sent this really great piece of fanart. We thought this piece was really clever - Joni has made some flip note art depicting two Steamland tanks battling it out!

It's Friday time Nitromians, and as usual, that means we're off for some much needed hibernation over the weekend. Next week we will have more for you though including a preview or two and an update on the iPhone piracy situation that might interest a few of you.
Stay tuned and have a great weekend!
JK has been working on some of the bugs that you have helped find in Test Subject Green. The bugs that have been resolved are:
Green Enzyme 'Monkey' bug:
Sometimes the enemy would get confused and start appearing all over the level.
Level 11 design has been tweaked:
In level 11, if you died in a certain scenario you could be trapped with no way out!
Thanks alot for pointing out these bugs. By doing this you are helping us make our games better!
We are proud to announce that we have a new game release today!
Test Subject Green is the sequel to the popular game Test Subject Blue. We hope you have fun playing it. As always helpful feedback is always appreciated.
Dave over at Three Quarter Games has posted an interview with Matthew Annal. Some of the questions relate to Steamlands and there's some pretty interesting info, so if you are interested in that game in particular, I'd recommend you check this out!
Also those curious as to the inner workings of Nitrome, it would also be worth giving this a read.

The good taste guide to games that is Edge has highlighted our Steamlands game as their internet game of the week. Needless to say we are thrilled and you can find their article and thoughts here!
Our game Steamlands has had some very impressive feedback round the web and we wanted to do our first reviews round up to show you all what sites have been saying:
Jay is Games: "Steamlands is a phenomenal game that takes aim for a casual browser strategy experience and hits the bullseye dead-on. It's about as perfect as you can get"
Indie Games: "it's rather too easy to lose a good few hours to this latest Nitrome release."
Rock Paper Shotgun: "As previously mentioned, Steamlands looks pretty perfect."
ByteJacker: On ByteJacker we managed to win the best internet game of the week!
It’s Friday again and we are now all heading out for some much deserved end of the week drinks so we will catch you again next week. Next week there will be a NEW GAME! Also look forward to some new info on some of the other games we are working on! Have a great weekend!
A few of you mentioned that we didn’t update the blog yesterday. We were a bit busy and never got round to it so sorry about that. It did however cause us to talk a little here about how we feel the blog is going and we have also been listening to your comments on Facebook/Twitter.
It can be hard for us to find the time to make a very juicy story for you each day and there is also the need to update with some bits of news that may be less high profile. Our intent was by updating every day that the blog was more interesting but some feedback suggests that if it is not high profile news that it is resented.

We have been loving the guessing game that went on over the mystery follow up game we announced earlier. Some of you were wrong but many comments on Facebook,Twitter and through the Fan Email predicted it spot on.
We can now reveal the first shot of our upcoming Rubble Trouble follow up. Give yourselves a well-deserved pat on the back if you guessed correctly on this and stay tuned for more news leading up to the games release.

We are back from a long weekend and Aaron has released a patch for Steamlands which fixes various elements within the game.
Steamlands Patch 1.01 Highlights:
Added auto-drive out (except on levels with no enemies such as the first level where the player needs to learn the driving skill).
Added a confirmation prompt on Unlock Everything in the Campaign Map Editor.
The game completion animation is now accessible (complete THE PIRATE COMMANDER to view it)
The title now has a version number to help distinguish between cached versions of the game - if you don't see "v 1.01" on the top right of the title screen, you're not playing the latest version.
