Here's Where the Fun Begins

I get up early in the morning for work, so I won't be hanging around until midnight. I feel pretty safe in saying that we've succeeded in funding past our first stretch goal. Once this is done, Kickstarter will be looking to collect money, and in... (Read More)

As long as nothing dire happens in the next 8 hours, Nefertiti Overdrive will include maps for the two major locations in the adventure and the city of Thebes/Waset. Thanks everyone for your support. This is awesome. Fraser  (Read More)

Nefertiti Overdrive Inspiration: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

February 1st - via:
Less than a week to go! Oh my! And we're at 120%. I'm not going to complain.   For our last piece of inspiration, I've gone back to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, perhaps the best known wuxia film in North America. It was the perfect storm of a... (Read More)

The Princess, The Spartan, The Misfit, Oh My!

As we are heading into the last nine days of the Kickstarter, I thought I'd share the characters with you. You will notice, that some of these characters are different than those in the Quickstart. Until this game goes to publication, changes can... (Read More)

When I write, I always have music playing. Sometimes it's just background noise (for which I generally choose Baroque, especially J. S. Bach). When I am working on games, I generally have a soundtrack to help keep me in the right mindset for the game... (Read More)

Nefertiti Overdrive Inspiration: the Last Legion

January 26th - via:
There's a not very good movie out there called the Last Legion. I find it notable mostly because it has Aishwarya Rai in the role of a kick-ass South Asian assassin. When I decided to make the Serpent female (sorry, Saïd Taghmaoui, whom I originally... (Read More)


January 24th - via:
And we are funded. Thanks so much for your support. I honestly had some doubts at first, but for the last few days, it's been more of a "when will it fund" as opposed to "will it fund." Now I've got my fingers crossed for the first stretch goal,... (Read More)

Nefertiti Overdrive Inspiration: 300

January 23rd - via:
I have to admit, it's pretty nice starting the weekend at 90% funded and 18 days to go! You pretty much knew for the Spartan I'd be looking at 300, right? Now, granted, 300 is a horrible example of hoplite combat or what one might have seen at... (Read More)

Nefertiti Overdrive Inspiration: the Three Musketeers

January 21st - via:
I wanted to offer up another piece of inspiration, but couldn't find a video that fits, so let's try it without a specific video.   The character for the Etruscan includes the Quality "Everything is a Weapon." This is a very specific homage to... (Read More)

Speeding Up Play and Descriptions

In update #5, I used War of the Arrows to provide some inspiration for the Amazon. In that example, as with the Flash Point example, I showed how different Qualities are hit in the description. Here's the thing, constantly explaining can sometimes... (Read More)

We are 70% funded, and that is pretty exciting. One can never be certain until that number crests 100%, but I am confident Nefertiti Overdrive will fund. Confident enough that I am putting more work into it and adding to it.   A backer mentioned an... (Read More)

Nefertiti Overdrive Inspiration: War of the Arrows

January 17th - via:
This is from a great Korean historical actioner called War of the Arrows. It's about a Korean archer who tries to save his kidnapped sister from the evil Manchu.  The bow doesn't get enough love in action cinema – save for stoic Rethel in the 13th... (Read More)
