Bundle of Love

The Sea Will Claim Everything is currently part of the Bundle of Love for Brandon Boyer. The story is one that should be unsurprising to anyone who is familiar with private healthcare in the United States: person gets healthcare, person gets sick, healthcare company refuses to pay, person is left destitute. Humble Bundle has teamed […]

Reload

We were on German television the other day, in a show about videogames called Reload. We show up somewhere around 23 minutes in. (And it’s in German, of course.) I haven’t watched it yet, but people tell me I wasn’t too embarrassing.

Fear of Twine

Fear of Twine is an online exhibition of text-based games made by a highly diverse group of people from all around the world. It’s not just diverse in its list of authors, though: it has everything from fantasy to horror to science fiction to deeply personal explorations of kink to abstract political fiction about working-class […]

The Trouble With Robots

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 […]

Secrets

Sometimes we work on projects that aren’t Ithaka. Because Verena’s fingers need time away from crayons. Because I like variety. And because it’s awesome.

The Bogeymen of the Indie Scene

Human beings have always been susceptible to bogeymen. It’s a lot easier to get angry at people instead of getting angry at systems. We are persons, so we seek to personify the world. Thunderbolts come from Zeus, pestilence comes from Yahweh and your indie game problems come from Jonathan Blow. You can’t block capitalism on […]

Interviews With Silly People

Hi. I’m still on holiday, but you might want to read these. PC Master published an interview with me online which was previously featured rather splendidly in their print magazine. It’s in Greek. If you don’t read Greek, well, just go look at this hilarious photo of us and the cat on page 9. It’s […]

Ithaka Update

Hi all, You’ve probably been wondering what’s been going on with Ithaka of the Clouds. Well, I’m here to tell you all about it. The bad news is that we got somewhat stalled in the beginning by two bouts of ill health. Verena had already produced a dozen or so drawings when she caught the […]
