Famitsu Solstice 2

It can be really hard to get hold of press cuttings and reviews of your games when you're just the developer. Publishers tend to hire agencies to collate all reviews and mentions of them and their products in the press, but small developers can't afford this, and its a bit hit and miss whether publishers consider you important enough to pass this information on.

So I'm pretty lucky to have clippings of a couple of reviews in the Japanese weekly games magazine Famitsu of two of our games - Solstice 2 and Wetrix. Solstice 2 had a lot of coverage in Famitsu, getting some kind of gold medal thingy (I don't know, its all in chinese!!), and I think I've got some more pages of Famitsu coverage in a folder somewhere.

Also, 8-7-7-7 was a pretty respectable score, I think. For a western game anyway.

If anyone's sitting on a complete Famitsu collection going back 15 years, then I'd love to see any reviews for Plok! and Aquaqua.
