(re-posted on my blog) Hey everyone, Neocolonialism might have a cooler-looking interface, thanks to the work of a friend who gave me some background art. However, I cannot decide how I feel about the result. So, I’m asking for feedback! This is... (Read More)

PAX! (belatedly)

March 30th - via: kickstarter.com
(re-posted on my blog) Sorry for the delay… I had family and sleep to attend to. PAX is huge. See this? That is a small fraction of PAX, and far from the most crowded. Also, PAX was awesome. I had a booth on Saturday on Sunday that I shared with... (Read More)

March 4th - via: kickstarter.com
(re-posted on subalterngames.com) This weekend, I attended the MassDigi 2013 Game Challenge, a competition for which team can give the best pitch for the game prototype/concept. Neocolonialism was the runner-up for best indie serious game!... (Read More)

Beta news! and some screenshots

February 26th - via: kickstarter.com
(re-posted on subalterngames.com) So first I’ll give ya the bad news: The beta for Neocolonialism will probably be ready in April 2013, as opposed to March. In addition to the coding for online games being much trickier than expected, I’ve also... (Read More)

Kickstarter Katchup – 3rd February 2013

February 3rd - via: rockpapershotgun.com
It has been a week of travel, talk and teamwork for me, as I visited the Paradox Convention, met good people and then cursed loudly as they defeated me in everything from The Showdown Effect to Europa Universalis IV. (Read More)

Success!!

January 30th - via: kickstarter.com
Well, that was a nice thing to wake up to this morning. Thank you EVERYONE who pledged, spread the word throughout the Internet, wrote articles about me, or otherwise contributed in some way to the Kickstarter project. I honestly feel a bit humbled... (Read More)

Kickstarter Katchup

January 27th - via: rockpapershotgun.com
This week, spaceships are constructed, nobody loses and the Katchup features an open source 3D engine Linux port, which certainly sounds like the sort of thing that should be happening but also makes me realise how little I know about the availability of engine licenses and the complexities of game development. Maybe I’ll ask Jim to teach me, although I reckon most of his input on Sir, You Are Being Hunted involves polite requests for ‘more robots and tea’. (Read More)

Big Update!

This is it! We are now in the home stretch. With 9 days to Neocolonialism is 68% of the way towards its goal! Within nine days, Neocolonialism's long-term fate (as well as mine as far as career aspirations go), will be basically decided. It's all... (Read More)

Kickstarter Katchup

January 20th - via: rockpapershotgun.com
It’s taken me longer than I’d hoped, but I’ve finally managed to exorcise the last spirits of 2012 from the Kickstarter Katchup and the 2013 instalments can now begin. The extended break has left us with a lot to katch up on so there will be a lot of winners and losers this week, covering many of the games in the last Katchup. I’m not going to list every game that failed to reach its target but all the winners will be there, as well as any that are of particular interest or have detailed plans for the future. (Read More)

Most Educational Games are Crap! (but they don't have to be)

January 17th - via: kickstarter.com
Hey everyone, Another excellent week has passed, and the Kickstarter has (easily) cleared its halfway mark at $5K with over half the time left to go! You can go to kicktraq.com to see the progress. When I am not hard at work on managing the... (Read More)

Kicktraq is the best way to follow Kickstarter campaigns

January 10th - via: killscreendaily.com
