An update for Messenger Plus! Live has just been released.

A while ago, I promised some pictures to illustrate our new work environment, here are some (it’s not much but I’ll take more when we’ve cleaned-up).

Hello everyone.

Most of you know about Plus! Games, Yuna’s new website.

This site  has been live for approximately three months, and is a work in progress.

Hello again from Nathalie. In Canada, we grew up with the expression that if March comes in like a lion, it goes out with a lamb and vice versa.  My initial announcement here last week, which was at the beginning of  March, did seem to bring in a roar of lions and I hope that March will end tamer, more like lambs. 
First of all, I wanted to clarify a few things, although I understand that you feel very disappointed and apprehensive about the recent changes here. I really hope that in time you will feel differently. 

Hello again from Yuna Software. My name is Natalie, and I have both good news and sad news.  The sad news, unfortunately, is that Vanessa had to leave us for personal (health) reasons.

If 2009 was a year of changes, it seems that 2010 started as a year of disbelief. In the last 2 months, I’ve read many posts, many blog entries, many comments and many emails regarding Yuna Software. Since the change of control happened, most of you in the Messenger Plus! community groups, wondered about what was happening.
