I've been busy fixing issues with our new blog system. The main issues that I have fixed are:
Linking to and sharing our posts in the article page
The Internet Explorer 'hidden older/scrolling buttons'
Page Loading has now been made cleaner
Fixed some file loading errors.
I have also cleaned up some of the style code.
It fades in... which is nice :)
If you find any difficulties while using our blog - please contact us and let us know, I will fix the issues when we find them!
Nitrome has finally joined the digital age of communication and have decided it is time for us to Tweet! From now on all of our blog posts and perhaps some other things too will also be arriving in shortened tweet speak!

Welcome to our new Blog! It has been completely rewritten from the ground up by our uber clever web developer Tom! This is the first new feature to go live from Tom but there is plenty more to come in the future so stay tuned for more info!
Ok features, features, features….
The first thing you should notice is the new super wizzy bouncy scrolling system! We have ditched the old side scroller of yesteryear in favour of something much more iphone/touchpad inspired…..wow aren’t we all high tech and fashionable!
There are some other ways to scroll too! If you have a mouse wheel you can still use that and for those of you who don’t want to use the mouse we have even made the up and down arrow keys scroll the screen as well. Finall…READ MORE
You heard correctly! In order to get you all to use the blog that Tom has lovingly put together we decided we should actually put some more regular content in it! The new blog is much easier for us to update than the old system so it makes it a lot easier for us to share things with you. Hopefully this will be an ongoing thing but as of now and for the next 4 weeks (Mon – Friday) we will have a new blog post every day!
We have some very cool things planned to share with you next week including another very exciting preview, a long overdue fans update, some cool Facebook and Twitter news and if that weren’t enough you may even get our next game release
Check out a screen shot from our game that is set for release very, very soon! The game has you playing as a lab experiment that has to find his way through the lab test to progress each level using a special mechanic that we won’t ruin for the moment!
We will have more previews soon including more on our allusive Strategy game we showed a shot of a while back!

"Just" in time for Christmas, we've released our second winter game: Rush.
This was literally finished just in time for us finishing for Christmas and nearly making JK the programmer miss his flight!! Because of that, we fully expect there may still be a few rough edges here and there, but fear not, we'll update the game in January when we get back.
So enjoy the multiplayer (up to 4 players!!), topsy turvy, fun of Rush! And have a happy holidays!
