European Nintendo downloads: Starship Patrol, A Boy and His Blob, Eat! Fat! FIGHT!

What's in a Name: WayForward Technologies

With its gorgeous A Boy and His Blob remake in the pipeline, WayForward has been on our minds quite a lot recently. Unfortunately, we didn't have the answer to the real question: How did the company come up with its name? Our curiosity is now sated. "Back when we started in 1990, I happened to...
