Candy Jam and Seatbelts


…working on the ‘vertical slice’ stage of my CandyJam game

entry, King’s Brigade: Saga of the Candy Crushers.

And, of course, listening to the Real Folk Blues. Yeah.


TEAS – On a Japanese Booksite


While searching for results related to the ISBN of my wife’s book
(doesn’t everybody do things like this?) I found it interesting
when I received a result in Japanese. As it turns out,
stocks quite a number of books published through and
Amazon. Including hers.

Speaking of Kickstarter…


Double Fine Adventures isn’t breaking new ground by being a crowdfunding project for a video game. Nor, from what I can tell, are they really doing too much different in their approach to it. (With the exception, perhaps, of the inclusion of a behind-the-scenes documentary of course.)

In August of 2011 the folks behind the Octodad game successfully raised a hint over their $20,000 goal to develop Octodad 2.

And possibly intrigued by the hype created by Double Fine’s project, Obsidian Entertainment and Planescape: Torment designer Chris Avellone recently poled fans to see what they would want to see if Obsidian were to Kickstart a game project of their own, and the thread got 1000 hits per second. (Not surprisingly, Planescape 2 was at the top of the wish list.)

Lastly, if anyone is interested in seeing other game kickstarts, IGN posted a little piece entitled Five More Video Game Kickstarters to Fund.
