The Buzz: Summer Vacation

Morale is an important part of the development formula. Keeping up spirits promotes productivity, creativity and a healthy relationship between coworkers. Basically, we just wanted to take a day to ride roller coasters and shoot down water slides. So we went to Lagoon. For anyone unfamiliar with Utah, Lagoon is an amusement park in Farmington, packed with coasters, rides, slides, and even a zoo! We packed up shop one beautiful summer day and headed out for some thrills.

We could not have picked a better day. Just a little overcast, toasty without being scorching, not too crowded. Everything was open and NinjaBee had a whole day of fun ahead. Some people made a beeline for the biggest coaster in the park, others split and headed to Lagoon A Beach to lounge in the warm weather or float by in the lazy river. Making games is serious business, and so is partying!

It was also a chance for us to all bring our families together. NinjaBee is a very family friendly company. Many of us have children and love to spend time with our beautiful families. The summer party is a great chance to celebrate the achievements of not just the employees that make this studio great, but the fantastic families that love and support us. There is nothing quite like enjoying a company barbecue at the amusement park. 

After a magical day celebrating our fantastic friends, coworkers, and family, it was time to head home and get ready to create games! Another summer party wrapped up, and the rest of the year ahead of us. We are all eager to be working on the great titles we will be showing off in the next year.

What a fantastic event! I'm crazy jealous. Hopefully nobody "caught salmonella from the log flume." 10 points to whoever can pinpoint that quote.
