ARGH WTF LOL

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 …

Scary Times

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 …

Ithaka Update #2

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 …

Statement on Snowden

My statement on Edward Snowden has been added to the WSWS.org’s list: Once upon a time, before he was president, Barack Obama lauded the importance of whistle-blowers to a democratic society, promising that his administration would be the most transparent in history. Though it sounds like parody now, Mr. Obama …

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 …

Away Message

If all goes well, Verena and I will be in Greece for the next month. I won’t be able to respond quickly to emails (I’m still way behind), but we will be working on Ithaka and our novels and stuff, and there will be occasional posts. Take care.

My curse upon your venom’d stang

Teeth. I hate teeth. If there is a Creator, the existence of teeth proves that He’s one evil son of a pre-Creator void. I don’t have a good history with dentists, especially not in the last ten years here in Germany. I don’t blame myself for this; it’s hard to …

Amazing!

This is just to let you know that we’ll be in Berlin from the 24th until the 27th and may be hard to reach in that time. I realize the timing is inconvenient for all kinds of reasons, but there’s not much I can do about it. I will be …

The Secret Gates

Remember what I said earlier in the year about accelerating? I’ve been slowed down by some enormously painful tooth problems – which two dentists failed to recognize, meaning the problem got pretty bad and since I’m somewhat resistant to anaesthetics they’ll actually have to knock me out completely to fix …

YAY

Reposted from Indiegogo: It is done! And you did it. All of you. Thank you so much! We are very, very grateful. It’s amazing and heartwarming that not only will we get to make Ithaka of the Clouds, we will also get to go back and polish the previous Lands …
