It's been a busy week here at Fretshirt HQ, what with Mother's Day coming this weekend, not to mention the switch from Greenwich Mean Time to British Summer Time on the same day, but mainly to do with the official launch of our Mashinky Merchandise range, by the wonder that is the Czech Republic's best Indie Dev Jan Zeleny.
And, if that wasn't enough - when is it ever? - we also expanded our surprisingly large range of Cat Shirts with a new theme "It's a Cat Thing" range.
Now, that is shirts, sweaters and Hoodies, with cats on them. Not garments to be worn by the little furry critters although, what you do with your clothings after you've bought it is really nothing to do with us. We're not ones to judge our beloved Fretters.
Erm... So.... Anyway, where was I?
Other than getting weird images in my head?
Oh yes. Time changes...
Okay so that doesn't make that much real difference, other than having to get out of bed earlier, which is never a good thing.
Oh and for those of you not in the UK who I've now panicked, thinking you've forgotten Mother's Day, don't worry, it's pretty much only the UK that celebrates our Mums on 4th Sunday in Lent, most of you have until 2nd Sunday in May to honor your Moms. Unless your country uses International Woman's Day, in which case you've got some apologising to do.
BTW: How did we ever manage to do anything before Wikipedia?
Anyway, we had such a great response to the Mashinky Merchandise from one particular country that we decided to make them a special offer:
There you go: Support Fretshirt.com and independent Game Development, and we'll give you something back.
If you want your country to be as special as the Czech Republic, then give us a reason to do so.
A National Holiday perhaps, a special event, or even something you've made up. We'll look at all the options. Just don't mention Brexit.
Now back to the cats.
Yes, I know, they get everywhere don't they?
In case you haven't guessed - was I too subtle - those are the designs in our new "It's A Cat Thing" range, not all of which are released yet, but if you pop over to the Animal Theme pages you'll see those that are.
Or you could just keep an idea on our twitter where new designs are often announced first along with retweets from our partners, so you'll never be the last to hear anything.
Of course, the FretDay blog is always better informed than the twitter team, so don't foget to come back each Friday, for the proper news. Not just some 280 characters of it.
You deserve so much more than that.
Until We Fret Again.
