Linkies and stuff

A random assortment of links and stuff:

  • The Book of Living Magic is completely finished. Currently just waiting for some tester feedback and trying to decide how I will approach sponsorship.
  • I finally sent Terry my complete outline for the Nexus City prequel. I’ve already got a ton of notes, so if he likes the general direction of what I’m suggesting, I’ll be able to put together the script rather quickly.
  • Speaking of Terry, At a Distance, his game for the No Quarter exhibition, is getting rave reviews.
  • Glenn Greenwald is one of the most serious journalists writing today. One of his recent articles: They hate us for our freedoms.
  • Johann Hari, another serious journalist, writes about David Cameron’s environmental policy. Worth reading, even if you’re not in the UK.
  • The glorious, democratic Greek police force. (requires YouTube login)
  • I participated in the comments thread of this article about Greece. It’s depressing to see how widepsread these bullshit ideas about lazy Greeks and their supposedly bloated public sector are. Well, the only thing one can do with these right-wing idiots is fight to create a better world in spite of them.
  • Speaking of bullshit, Verena writes about a particularly nauseating variety thereof.
  • And finally, to wash away the depression, a very cute snow leopard.

  1. Excellent round up. Oh, and I can’t really wait to play BoLM. I’ll refrain from discussing fascism in Greece for now…

    I hope the state of game sponsoring isn’t weird like it was when you were trying to get Alphaland sponsored.

  3. Fuck fracking. They’re doing that over here, and they’re about to make it a major industry here in West Virginia. As if all the coal mines and mountaintop removal wasn’t hurting our environment enough. -_-

    Dear Jonas,

    I enjoy your blog now and again (and most of your games, while we’re at it), and I followed your link over to the Guardian and read that article and your comments to it. I think you are absolutely right when you state that “the problems are systemic”. Thus, I’d like to direct your attention to the blog of a dear friend of mine, Toby Russel, an Englishman in Berlin: you can find it at thdrussel.blogspot.com. There, he undertakes an almost heroic, ongoing struggle to understand the systemic dimensions of our predicament, and he’s still moving forward, although lately taking smaller steps. Anyway, his blog was a source of many light bulb moments for me (and provided a great deal of links and recommendations for further reading) so while you’re recovering from your tooth and might be wanting to divert your thoughts, perhaps it would find your interest.

    Keep up your good work,
    Frank

    great!
    by the way, are you completely switched from making standalone games to that online-flash thing?
