Since the dawn of man, Friday has been revered and celebrated as the best day of the week.  Fossilized remains of party cups have been found all over the globe, and though Wikipedia will insist otherwise, Loverboy’s Working for the Weekend is actually a cover of an ancient Aboriginal chant that dates back thousands of years.

In keeping with this ancient tradition, we like to make Fridays a little special here at CloudKid.  Each week, everyone at the studio gathers together to eat lunch, share what we’ve been working on, and discuss new projects that are floating on the horizon.  The coveted MVP Award is given out to the deserving CloudKid of the week, and we usually end things by watching a little entertainment.  Sometimes a theme is suggested: present the worst piece of artwork you’ve ever created; show us an animation or video that particularly inspired you this week … you get the idea.

Here’s a little taste of what we did last Friday.  To celebrate our Escape from GreasyWorld game — what else?  An ice cream sundae party!


CloudKid MVP TrophyLast spring while visiting LA for a round of pitch meetings, Matt Moore and I bought the ultimate printer that produced some of the nicest presentation prints we’d ever seen.  Upon returning back east, we appropriately named the printer The MVP.  Based on that idea, we decided it would be a great weekly tradition to present a CloudKid MVP award to the person, place, or object that defies expectations.

We are proud to announce that the first recipient of the coveted CloudKid MVP Award is our new studio space!  This isn’t a diss to any of our fellow CloudKids – everyone was in agreement and couldn’t be happier with our new HQ.

Please note: CloudKid is not in cahoots with Burger King or its King.
