Artificial Content

One of the problems of being a game publisher are (often) the lack of regular and steady content from developers. A lot of users often mistake publishers for being developers as well. For the record, a publisher is a company such as ours, Level Up. We are the ones who buy the game, license it and operate it in the country. We have the rights to market it and even host it in local servers. But we DO NOT have the rights to design, fix, or tamper with the game design or the codes in any way.

Gmail Now Has Themes

 

When I opened up my Gmail, I got a welcome surprise. Gmail now offers themes! Woot!

You can choose from around 30 or so new themes. “We wanted to go beyond simple color customization, so out of the 30 odd themes we’re launching today, there’s a shiny theme with chrome styling, another one that turns your inbox into a retro notepad, nature themes that change scenery over time, weather driven themes that can rain on your mailbox, and fun characters to keep you in good company,” mentions Gmail’s blog.

Ragnarok Player Composes Theme for Survivor Philippines

 

Most of you, when not gaming, may be glued to your TV sets watching GMA 7′s Survivor Philippines, yes?

Do you know that a Ragnarok player composed the new theme song for this Survivor series? It’s none other than good friend and pRO veteran Master Diwa de Leon. Diwa’s a pro violinist known to most also a cosplayer, a film maker, composer and good Ragnarok player. Talent and creativity is this guy’s middle name! He and co-creator Edwin Guillermo even bagged the 2nd place of the LIVE 2008 Filmfest with their entry Hindi Ako Botter (where I get a special cameo appearance. Woot!).

Listen to the song and my interview with MD after the break…
