A lot of news items popped-up while I was away at GenCon and then on our week-long camping trip. What better way to catch up than a bunch of links to other sites? 😉
8/3 – Purple Pawn’s Paper Money Podcast, Episode #54 – The Wausau Daily Herald article about my game design hobby was mentioned in the latest Paper Money podcast. Listen around the 12:15 mark … and to make it all super-shiny, they think “it’s not a loser game” — how’s that! 🙂
8/3 – Glowing Castle Danger Review – Follow designer, Grant Rodiek, apparently really, really likes Castle Danger. And that makes me happy. (Grant is the designer of the cool-looking — and very cool-named — game Farmaggedon.)
8/10 – Battlespace Magazine’s Feature on TGC – Battlespace (online) Magazine has a feature article on TheGameCrafter.com in the August/September 2011 issue, which includes a few mentions and a couple pictures of Jump Gate. And, of something called “Warpgate” that looks very, very familiar … 🙁
8/12 – I am TGC’s first “Designer Profile”! – TheGameCrafter.com will be posting periodic profiles of the designers that use their services, and they were nice enough to put my profile up first. Be sure to check back each week to see the other designers using TGC for their games.
8/14 – Dice Tower’s GenCon 2011 Overview – At about the 8:30 mark of the Dice Tower’s GenCon 2011 recap video, Tom Vasel mentions the booth for TheGameCrafter.com and gives some nice video shots of 4 of my games (in order): Dicey Curves, DareBase, Castle Danger, and Jump Gate. While Tom mentions me by name, the one game he gives — Diggity — isn’t one of mine … it’s by Dave Dobson of Plankton Games. I had it there on behalf of Dave because I like to play it with my kids, and he sent me a new copy to take along. 😉
Okay … that should catch me up for a day-or-so!
Now I’ll turn my attention to getting Dicey Curves launched … thinking next Monday if everything goes well.
