First off I want to say a big thank you to everyone who has been checking out this blog for the last four months. It has become bigger than I had hoped and I love being part of this community. I have gotten a ton of killer games on the back of it, and even made a few friends. If you want to carry on the love, there’s even a Facebook ‘Like’ button down there on the right. Go ahead and click it, why don’t you.
This article isn’t about me however, but about a very cool blog that has become one that I sometimes have to stop myself commenting on in case the lovely person who runs it thinks that I’m stalking them. It just so happens that she writes in a very open style, about things I want to read, and invites comments about things I want to talk about. Head on over and check the page out and you’ll see what I mean.
Not only is it a damned fine read, but she has a ton of useful stiff over there too. My favourites have been her game translations. She takes a video game and mines it for plot hooks, characters and general atmosphere, then shares it with everyone. Meaning I have a lot less work to do if i want to steal ideas. So, ST Wild, thanks for some great reads, and I hope you’ll be around for a long time.
And just so people know, I’ve been working on my own card/board game design recently, so expect some regular updates soon. Especially because I did my first full play test recently. I got my ass kicked, and I’m the designer of the game. is that a good thing?
