First this story breaks out on Kotaku and tsumea that you’re sending Mike Turner down to pick up assets from the Perth Studio so that you can contract someone else to finish the game (rather than pay existing staff what they are owed in unpaid wages, entitlements, and superannuation).
Now I’m hearing reports that Mike has turned up in the dead of the night to change the locks (which I assume was done illegally given that Mike just recently resigned as company director, and I can’t imagine that the building owner was informed) and take all the computers.
He was stopped by the police. The police!?! What are you doing Mike? Seriously, what the hell are you doing? Please come to your senses and stop playing any role in this insanity. Anyone asking you to perpetrate illegal or questionable actions probably hasn’t got your best interests in mind.
Update: Okay, I’ve calmed down now. I’m not making any claims regarding the authenticity of this information or the legality of any actions taken by any individuals. This just completely blew my mind. Read up on it elsewhere.
Heidi and I moved down to Albany on the weekend and we’ve just got online. Yay!
The hospital where Heidi works has arranged for a great little apartment for us. It’s fully furnished and equipped (so we were able to just drive down with clothes, computers, etc.) and we’re able to keep cats! It also has a good view of Albany (although the ocean view is blocked by a tree).
The view from our apartment:

Gosh, these images took a while to upload. The Internet connection is only 512kbps (around 3% of the speed we’re used to). Hopefully we can arrange for something faster. 😉
