Two important links: Verena is looking for an artist/illustrator. (This is a paid job. Badly paid, because we’re poor, but paid. Not “for exposure” or anything like that.) We’ve announced the most amazing DLC for Ithaka of the Clouds you could possibly imagine.
Games, cats and communism. What else could you expect from this blog? Ossuary is a new commercial game by Gregory Avery-Weir, creator of Looming and indie classic The Majesty of Colors. I wonder, do game critics nowadays even remember how big games like The Majesty of Colors were? Do they remember how for a while, […]
I got The Trouble With Robots from the sadly-neglected Bundle in a Box. I’m not entirely sure whether I’d heard of this game before; it’s possible, as I tend to only briefly glance at game-related news most of the time, but it doesn’t appear to have been a huge hit. Which is a shame, because […]
I have tried, for some time now, to avoid spending my time responding to slander. To a large degree I felt, and continue to feel, that anyone who actually reads what I’ve written or engages with any of the art I’ve produced, will realize that such accusations are absurd; doubly so because my work has, […]
We’ve had some interesting conversations about the future of humanity and the limits of population growth on this blog in the past, and though I’ve become a little more cautious on the issue than I used to be, this video contains some really interesting thoughts that are worth considering.

I wasn’t going to do another political post straight away, but this is too good not to post. Sums up everything that is wrong with that facile propaganda piece (from the masterful director of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Prawn).
I’ve previously expressed the danger that I see in terms like “differently abled” – or rather in those people who make it a priority to change how we speak about disability instead of changing how we deal with it in economic and political terms. You could sum up the core of my argument like this: […]
The Sea Will Claim Everything and a whole bunch of other indie games are on sale right here: We love Steam. But there are lots of great games you can’t currently find there! Discover some of them here, and support indie development. The minimum amount off is 25%, but many games – including TSWCE – […]
I’d been meaning to write this for a while, before I got distracted by having to take care of some important business stuff. But this is a good opportunity to look back a little and talk about where we’re going. This has been a strange year, with lots of highs and lows. I haven’t released […]
Hi. I haven’t been updating much lately, mainly due to a) working really hard b) the continuing saga of Health Problems. I have some, Verena has some, and the cat has some too. It’s the kitty that’s really worrying us at the moment, since it’s barely been a month since her surgery and she has […]
