Back in town now, and Dragon*Con was an absolute blast! It also looks like there’s a good chance I will be returning next year :), and I was also invited to join a costuming group, so yay!.  I’ve also just signed onto a new consulting gig ( more yay!) and … Continue reading

Where did the summer go?

Whew, been super busy this whole summer and I realize I haven’t had a chance to update this in quite a while. I suck – got caught up in some random stuff and preparing for Dragon*Con (still preparing actually) and working on a new digital game, probably for PC and … Continue reading

I forgot how much I love Corel Painter

Some of the old player pieces.

Seriously, what a delightful little program.  I’ve never upgraded from the old Painter IX software, and I kinda doubt I ever will. It’s taken a couple of weeks, but I’ve finally finished converting the old thesis game Melusine into something I could print on GameCrafter, and for a good deal … Continue reading

The proofs arrived in the mail yesterday and they totally look and feel awesome.  Nice weight and texture on the individual cards.  The colors are a smidge more saturated than I thought they’d be, but that’s easily fixed.  Got a few punctuation errors to address, but that’ll be done in … Continue reading

Prototype Work and Stocking Woes

I’ve been working on some new prototypes this week, mostly trying to get the old “Fuzzy Go” up to production levels (art and graphic design takes me a looooooong time).  So I finally finish all the game files, upload them, proof the digital copies, and set up the store front … Continue reading
