An Icon Passes

The one and only Majel Barrett-Roddenberry has died at the age of 76. To anyone who knew her work, from Star Trek to Babylon 5, she was not only an icon of science fiction and an enormously talented and underrated actress, but also a symbol of humour and humanity. She …

Interactive Fiction and the Great Machine

And here’s a Spanish-language review of The Great Machine. As you may or may not know, I cannot speak Spanish. Speaking Greek and German and English (and some French), however, I can kind of decypher some. I did end up having to use Babelfish a lot, with hilarious results, but …

Walkthrough! Stuff! Words!

I’m a little short on time this week, as there is a lot that has to get done (most of it unpleasant). So I won’t write much right now. Gameboomers user Chief has been kind enough to write a walkthrough for Desert Bridge. Thanks, Chief! Madagascar 2 was actually quite …

Review! Review! Review!

*ahem* Perhaps I should sound more dignified. Perhaps I should do the whole “been there, done that” thing. I’ve had reviews before. Hell, I’ve had reviews in printed magazines. Well, once. Maybe twice. But the point is, I’ve been making games for eight years now, Last Rose has been called …

the evils of Vista…

I have just realized two things: a) Jay Is Games wrote about The Infinite Ocean, which explains the sudden influx of people during the summer. b) My games, with the exception of The Great Machine, don’t run on most Vista systems. Now, I despise Vista, so it’s not the end …

The Good, the Bad and the English

So, what’s new? Verena and I are getting married. (YAY!) I just had one of my wisdom teeth pulled out. (NOT YAY!) We’re probably going to London in a couple of days to see Hellboy 2. (YAY!)
