Elliot Serrano, writer of the RedEye blog Geek to Me, wanted to shed some girth before the Chicago summer hits with full force and asked Pro Wrestler Lisa Marie Varon if she could get him into Geek Fit shape. What came of it was the Geek Fit Challenge. 6 Geeky Contestants will work for 3 months from the guidance of Lisa and her trainers (Morph Personal Training) as well as help from each other while challenging themselves to reach their geek fit goals. The group will be training in their own time and with the group at Lakeshore Sports & Fitness and will be expected to keep progress photos to show the world!
Elliot was nice enough to bring by a bunch of those involved in the program to talk on the Pixeldom Live Podcast from C2E2. If you didn’t catch the videos live, you can watch them right now.

The Group from Go Gimbal Go was in the Artist Alley at C2E2 on Saturday April 14th showing off their new game to be released in the XBox Live Indie Arcade coming soon!

Go Gimbal Go is a fast paced, gravity defying race-to-the-finish platformer.
You play as the hero Gimbal, who must dodge deadly traps, make incredible jumps, and travel at blinding speeds to defeat the evil forces that have taken over the once-peaceful Rainbow Island.
