Inside The Tech Inside: The Swindle

By Lewie Procter on September 15th, 2011.

Achieved With The GiANT Engine
You may remember we exclusively revealed Size Five Games’ The Swindle all the way back in July. Details have been scarce on it ever since, but I managed to sneak into the Size Five blog, where I found Dan sharing fresh news of the engine that The Swindle will be running on. Here he is, in his own highly quotable words: Read the rest of this entry »

Before Time: Size Five’s Gibbage Goes Free

By Alec Meer on August 5th, 2011.

Is that Den and Ban?

Attention, fans of games made by a studio that used to be called Zombie Cow but is now called Size Five Games. The makers of Ben There, Dan That and Time Gentlemen, Please have released their first ever game Gibbage, a shooty platformer with a particularly neat two player mode, for free. But only for the duration of this weekend. What that means is that you should go here, now. No, not later. Now. Time’s a-wasting. The extra words below will still be here when you get back, don’t you worry.

By John Walker on July 19th, 2011.

This is a game's name in a picture on a website.

RPS is very pleased to be the first place to announce the name and details of Size Five‘s (formerly Zombie Cow) new game. It is called The Swindle, and creator Dan Marshall describes it as a steampunk cybercrime caper.

Zombie Cow Is Dead: It’s Size Five Games

By John Walker on May 20th, 2011.

Much more mature.

In a rather peculiar move, Zombie Cow – the indie developers behind the brilliant Ben There, Dan That, and Time Gentlemen, Please – have changed their name. No longer are they post-bovine, and have now become Size Five Games. Why? I’m not sure even they know why. Something about “Zombie Cow” being embarrassing to say in business situations. Well, I recommend trying to be “Rock, Paper, Shotgun” in a meeting with accountants. But Dan Marshall, the main man behind the name, has always hated it. And now he has the far more official sounding title, would everyone mind awfully rewriting their memories such that it was always the case? I think he’d prefer that. It also seems they’re quite close to announcing a new game, which is rather spiffy news.
