Museum Vista Patch

Sorry for being a bit late with this. I was incredibly tired last night, and totally forgot to upload the file. Anyway, here it is (1.14 MB). Download and extract into the game’s folder, overwriting the original file, then run the game. That should make it work. If it doesn’t, …

Last Rose / Infinite Ocean mirrors

Since apparently some people were having the occasional bit of trouble downloading from the JustAdventure server, I uploaded copies of Last Rose in a Desert Garden and The Infinite Ocean to this site. So, if you want to see some of my older work, it should now be easier.

Awesome.

There’s a review of Desert Bridge up at Jay is Games which is so awesome that words simply fail me. Well, actually they don’t. Awesome is a pretty good word. And awesome it is. That being said, House at Desert Bridge is a wonderful work to behold. It’s a story …

Since someone asked – yes, I am still going to do that update for Museum that will get it to run on Vista. Soon. I haven’t had much time lately, and what little time I’ve had I’ve spent working on my film and my novel. And I must say that, …

Choices

A couple of weeks ago a review of Desert Bridge apepared at the an occasional player’s review blog. It’s mostly very positive, but there are a couple of criticisms that are addressed directly at me, so I thought I’d respond. A couple of things I’d like to bring to Jonas’s …

Post-Christmas Post

Yes. I don’t have much to say right now. Christmas was fun – managed to surprise Verena with some nice presents, including two signed/personalized copies of Peter S. Beagle books. Also got some cool stuff, the best of which was a collection of Eddie Izzard DVDs. Izzard is my all-time …

Strange Problems

A small percentage of people have been unable to play Desert Bridge because of a very, very bizarre problem. I have conducted a number of tests to find out what is causing the problem, but have only found some small hints. It looks like some systems can’t deal with the …
