This is the progress blog for team Peacock Dreams as they work on the game "Everything is Peachy" - From the Peacock Dreams original blog post here

“We’re really happy to announce that our game is on steam and is available for purchase this Thursday (25/08)! It seems unbelievably surreal that we’re in this position and it’s definitely motivated us to give it 150% to do as much as we can.” – Nik

“For our 5th and final weekend of the placement we were fortunate enough to have enough left in the budget to rent a cottage for the weekend! We drove down to Johnshaven with a mountain of luggage and an even bigger mountain of things to do after finding out we’re going to be on steam!

It was a fantastic opportunity to relax, or well at least get a beautiful change of scenery while working. We stayed at a fantastic cottage and enjoyed being near the coast going for walks and playing board games by the fire place in between working. I’m really glad to say that we’ve made enormous progress and we’re ready to power through the final week for release!” – Doug

“We’re thankful to Creative Scotland and Business Gateway for giving us the opportunity to go out and explore Scotland and stay in Elgin for the 6 weeks to develop the game. Hunted Cow has been really helpful in answering all the questions we had about development and making games in general. It’s been a really nice experience over all.” – Abbie

“The weekend was really nice, it was great getting away from cities and towns to work on the game in a quiet place. Working on the game in front of an open fire on the coast hardly even felt like work” – Henry

“Being from somewhere near the sea I felt right at home in Johnshaven for the weekend. Going for walks along the coast and playing board games in the evening were a much needed break from all the animation I’ve been working on over the past 5 weeks. Lots to do next week to get the game ready for release but I’m recharged and ready to give it 110%” – Doug
