Hi #VolumeFriday peeps. I hope you have been surviving outrageously this last week. Things here have been going swimmingly here at the studio with Mike tinkering awaay. If you haven't checked out the Steam sale, I recommend doing so right now. If you have a friend who hasn't played Volume yet, now is the time to get them into it as we have 78% off a bundle of both Volume and Mike's earlier project, Thomas was Alone. Bargain!

Hello, hello, hello #VolumeFriday-ers! Good to see you here and ready for another Friday of Volume, games and just general games industry amazingness. The studio is having a ball in their creation of the next game. We are all excited to be working with such talented people and to all be in the same country generally makes such a difference.

After E3, it seems that the response has been super positive. I've been most taken with the beautiful trailers that have emerged from this conference and wanted to ask what your favourites were.

Welcome, welcome my fine #VolumeFriday peeps! We've had an eventful couple of days surrounding the UK election and you can definitely feel it in the streets. How this plays out for UK Brexit negotiations is yet to be seen as well as what this means for the UK games industry. We will watch and find out soon.

E3 is opening Tuesday and for the first time is allowing non industry types to attend. The general public will be able to see unfinished titles and play some fairly new vertical slices of some of their favourite franchises. Is this risky? Some are worried about how an enthusiast market will deal with unfinished code but other are interested to see what the players are excited about.

How exciting that the weekend is here again, and therefore it is #VolumeFriday where the excitement continues. The studio is enjoying not only the warmer days but also the political upheaval a general election brings. Well....maybe not enjoy, but it is a little different.

This week I thought I'd talk about Augmented Reality or AR.

Welcome, welcome to this week's #VolumeFriday! I don't know about you, but I've been really excited about the number of play throughs we've seen about Volume this week. It's always fun to hear what you think about Volume. Please keep them coming!

This week I thought we would talk about some of the most influential video games in history.

It's a wonderful Friday evening here in London and that means it is #VolumeFriday once again. We are bursting at the seams waiting for @Sliwinski to be here with us (as well as his trusty side-kick Shepherd the dog). The wait is nearly over!!!!

I thought this week I would highlight some Volume game play on Twitch. This week we have the Twitch star That Angry Tortoise in his video Stealth mode, ENGAGE! 2 follows until 100.

It is a happy Cinco de Mayo #VolumeFriday and we are celebrating @Sliwinski arriving in less than three days to the great island of Great Britain. The awesome duo of Mike and Alexander in one country is going to set some creativity sparks flying, I can't wait!

In my topic today, I thought I would discuss architecture and space in games. I feel that it is something that can enhance a game to great heights but is something that is often taken for-granted by the player.

If you haven't noticed, it is indeed #VolumeFriday. Welcome and hope this week has treated you well! The Bithell studio is counting down the weeks until our COO is in the UK. Mike's inbox is flooded with concept art for the new project. All we need is the weather to pick up for Alexander's arrival and everything will be perfect!

If you weren't in Croatia at Reboot Develop, you might have missed the excitement, had it not been for the twitter trending G2A's rhetoric. But in amongst all of this hullabaloo, Mike was a panelist talking about reputation where responsibility lies for maintaining it. Welcome to #VolumeFriday!

Good to see everyone again on this fine #VolumeFriday! A long weekend ahead of us, I know I'm going to be settling in for some intense game playing. The studio is quietly coming together with the big move for @Sliwinski coming over the pond shortly. If you aren't already following @mikeBithell and @Sliwinski on Twitter, please make it your task for the day as Mike and Alexander continue to hint at the upcoming game the studio is working on.

Welcome fellow #VolumeFriday-ers! Hope you are having a fantastic week so far and have a weekend amazing gaming fun ahead of you. If you have been following the gaming news, you'll see that the BAFTAs were on last night. Congratulations to Naughty Dog for Uncharted 4's win for best game. It sounds like it was a fantastic evening with plenty of amazing games being recoginsed.

To my wonderful Volume people, welcome to another #VolumeFriday. The studio has been running hot with Mike hinting at something incredible to come. What could it be, you wonder? I'm sure we will be letting you know soon enough. The end of an era is upon us with the Playstation 3 console production being halted the end of this month but with the Nintendo Switch lighting the way for new gaming consoles I am certainly excited to see what Sony has in mind for the next Playstation release.

Welcome one and all to another #VolumeFriday! Busy week as we've had our peeps all over the place and exciting events are happening left, right and centre. @Sliwinski is at PAX East, @MikeBithell and @Sliwinkski were at DICE, it was International Women's Day and Sony PlayStation released a little game called Horizon: Zero Dawn.

Happy #VolumeFriday, Volumites (or Volumers...or whatever the plural is of those who love, play and enjoy all that is Volume Game). Another week and the team are all out at either DICE, GDC or this week at PAX, making the rounds with the new concept that Bithell Games has in store for us in the future.

Good #VolumeFriday to everyone! I hope everyone has some great games (including Volume) to play this weekend. Art is still a hot topic for Bithell Games and something we want to talk about this week. Are video games art? Legally there is a precedent to suggest they are. The Supreme Court in the USA ruled  that video games should be considered an art form, as deserving of First Amendment safeguards as “the protected books, plays and movies that preceded them.”
