Sometimes I feel like I’m just barely holding on to sanity. It’s not the sense of failure. Sure, I have yet to accomplish the things I want to accomplish most, but for someone who started out with very little, with no capital to invest and parents in a desperately poor country, I’m not doing so […]
I’ve permanently disabled comments for all pages and posts on this website. I’ve been thinking about this for a while. In a way it’s absurd that the notion of turning off comments requires commenting on (hah). Why should it? When did we suddenly simply accept it as natural that every bloody piece of text we […]
I recently finished my text game for the upcoming Fear of Twine exhibition. It’s called The Matter of the Great Red Dragon, is set in the Lands of Dream, and has turned out quite wonderful, even though the whole thing came to me in a flash at the last minute, after I’d thrown my original […]
Always remember the past, comrades!
It’s Christmas here in the Kingdom of Merkel, so I thought I’d share a pretty song. And don’t forget the very special Merry Satan Christmas Discount which will allow you to purchase award-winning game The Sea Will Claim Everything for only $6.66!
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.

Discover some of them here, and support indie development. The minimum amount off is 25%, but many games – including TSWCE – […]
New vet verdict: his problem is communication, not necessarily skill (though he’s not very good at handling the animal). The operation was probably necessary. It’s hard to judge as a non-expert, which is why we’ve had some really bad experiences with doctors (remember my teeth?), but it looks like this disaster was unavoidable. Cat is […]
As you may know if you follow me on Twitter, our cat has been diagnosed with a fast-growing tumour in her bladder, as well as a partially damaged kidney (which may or may not be unrelated). There’s nothing we can do about the kidney, and so far her overall kidney function is still OK, but […]
The time we spent in Greece was great for Ithaka of the Clouds. Verena did a lot of drawing every day and, after some stylistic experiments, finished most of the images for the first part of the game. Yes, the game is divided into parts… but I really don’t want to spoil this stuff for […]
