Socialism Without Socialism

I have a terminology problem. I used to call myself a socialist; I picked this over communist because the latter made people think of Stalinism, which is the exact antithesis of everything I believe in. Sometimes I used the term Marxist, because that seemed more precise: class struggle, materialist conception …

The Council of Crows – Final Update

I could write an entire book entitled What the Fuck Happened to The Council of Crows. In that book, I would be the idiot protagonist making all the wrong choices. You’d have a certain degree of sympathy, because those choices all came from trying to do the right thing at …

Just Keep Going

2018 was crazy. I worked incessantly. Every day. Even when travelling. We travelled! Italy was a particular highlight, as was seeing more of the Balkans. My belief in internationalism was strengthened by the people we met and the experiences we had. Verena successfully ran a marathon, but later in the …

Quick News Update Without Witty Title

What’s happening? A lot is happening! I’m working on a project I can’t tell you about yet. I’m working on another project I can’t tell you about yet. The last bit of The Council of Crows finally clicked into place for me – a pretty amazing bit of story that’s …

Links! 26/04/2016

Whoa, there’s a lot of stuff going on right now. Big projects to work on, major decisions to make, that sort of thing. Also been violently, explosively sick a few times. So there hasn’t been much time for updates. Here’s the most important stuff: I’m going to be at Reboot …

A Serious Project

So, it’s official – Verena and I will be writing Serious Sam 4! Yes, both of us. Initially it was just going to be me, but Verena ended up contributing so much to the script that she officially joined the project. Which is excellent, because she writes the best one-liners, …

Road to Gehenna

Hey folks, I’m currently in Greece, on something of a working holiday, so I can’t write much. Typing this on my phone, which is quite hard with my oversized fingers. Road to Gehenna comes out today! I’m quite nervous about it. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s really good, …

Big Update Over Yonder

I’ve written a massive update about crowdfunding, game design and the future of the Lands of Dream. Go read it while I prepare some proper updates to this site, which is starting to get rather dusty. As I said on Twitter, I’ve been so busy writing that I haven’t had …

Putting the ease in disease

Hey everyone, Apologies for the lack of updates, including the promised video about The Council of Crows. I am, to put it simply, sick as a dog. I got sick in San Francisco just before GDC, got even sicker in Boston during PAX, and then stayed sick for a long …

General Updatey News Stuff

So, hey, The Talos Principle got some pretty nifty reviews, and even won some awards! That’s pretty cool. In fact, that’s awesome. I’m very, very happy. Whatever reservations I may have about the state of games criticism, I’m pretty glad that we were right in assuming that the people who …
