Richard Dawkins: Honey Defender
UsVsTh3m’s Richard Dawkins: Honey Defender was a topical little game based on Richard Dawkins’ weird, honey-based rant about airport security. So we put together something where Dawkins rides a bee around an airport, collecting pots of honey and avoiding religious figures. Obviously.

There is a shop near our house which bills itself as selling “urban cuisine”. I can’t help thinking what that would really entail – pigeon pie? Rat pasties, fox sausages and cockroach kebabs?
A Planet of the Apes-themed wedding invitation. I look forward to monopolising Google Images search results with this, in the same way I’ve sewn up “BjÃ¶rk eating puffins”.
Perhaps I should try illustrating Googlewhacks, now that everybody’s forgotten what those are…
I am quite excited
that I now have an IMDB entry, thanks to a tiny amount of work I did for the inimitable Joel Veitch‘s Mister Wormsley’s Christmas. Immortality beckons…
