This Week on Sam and Dan Games: Ninja-ja and Pokemon Tower Defense Progress

Want to play Ninja-ja? Get a shiny pikachu, shiny mew, shiny starter or have your suggestion for a weapon design to be used on Ninja-ja? Click here for more info on how you can get those things.

Hey guys! Another week of updates is upon us, so let's get started.

This week we are giving away a shiny Rattata, thanks again to our new sponsors, the clues are a little harder this time so good luck. Click here to start your hunt.

Looking at the poll it seems that most of you liked the change of scenery around here so I will keep this new layout for a while until we all get tired of it.

An update about the artist position, we still haven't decided on who are going to pick but we have narrowed it down from 77 applications to about 17 that we really liked. If you haven't applied but are interested then you are more than welcome to submit your portfolio to But before you do, look at past blogs to find out what the requirements are.
