Dudelings v1.0.1 Patch Notes

We're excited to announce that Dudelings: Arcade Sportsball has received its first patch. Version 1.0.1 includes bug fixes and updates for player input. Find the patch notes below!

Dudelings: Arcade Sportsball now available on Steam!

This isn't your dad's Pong... Or his foosball either. Maine's new media production company Heavy Element has released Dudelings: Arcade Sportsball for Steam Deck, Linux, and Windows PC on Steam and Itch.io. This genre-defining "Sportslike" throws players into the high-intensity world of athletics, but without the bumps, bruises, and baseless attacks on late night talk show hosts. Get the ball in the hole. That's what most sports boil down to, right? (We don't know. We're asking.) In this hyper-competitive game, up to two players use the dudelings on the field to jump and hit the ball into the opposing team's goals, hoop, or over the net. Bask in the glory of 16-bit-style victory. Wallow in the sadness of defeat. Or just punch the nearest dudeling to you because slapstick will always be funny. We don't care how you play the game, just as long as you're enjoying it.

vidIQ just told my story!

I was recently featured in a YouTube Short produced by the company vidIQ, one of the leading third-party tools for content creators. I was flattered when they reached out and offered to create this short about the channel and my journey to becoming a fully independent creator. They did a pretty good job capturing the broad strokes of my path to founding Heavy Element. Seeing as they necessarily had to leave a bit of the nuance on the cutting room floor (and since September 2023 marks nine years since I started weekly uploads on the channel) I thought now would be a good time to tell the story of this company. The Beginning Initially, the channel now known as Gardiner Bryant was called "The Linux Gamer." I made a name for myself talking about video games for Linux. Doing video reviews of my favorite Linux releases and celebrating my favorite open source operating systems. I did all while working a 9 to 5 as a furniture delivery guy. I quickly found my niche and an audience grew around the content I was producing. Right off the bat, there were multiple folks in
