What I am working on right now

I recently had a couple of long weekends that allowed me to work on several projects. One of these projects has been Jay Steven Anyong’s BADASS which we released some time ago. Now that the game is released I had some time to work on some other projects.

A Wanderer’s Romance
A Wanderer’s Romance is a wuxia-style game written by Chris McDowall of SoogaGames. A long time ago he already asked me to do the layout of one of his games but alas I always had to put this off. But last Thursday I sat down and finished the layout. Of course there are still a few errors to fix, but I hope we can release this game in the coming days/weeks. It’s quite different in style from BADASS but I am definitely as excited!

Pavel Elagin allowed us to use his awesome artwork, which really helps to let “A Wanderer’s Romance” shine.

One Thousand and One Posts – Best of Stargazer’s World
When we hit the 1000th post milestone at Stargazer’s World a while back I asked the readers for their help: “What are your favorite posts?” The idea was to compile the best posts into some kind of blog anthology. Alas the feedback was quite limited, but I didn’t want to let the project die. So I picked some of the most popular, most controversial and interesting posts and started to work on “One Thousand and One Posts”.

Please note that the pictures above are taken from a very early draft, so there might still be changes. But I definitely love the cover artwork created by Vlad Gerasimov who gave me permission to use his artwork as long as I don’t sell the PDF. Since I always give my work away for free, this should be no major hurdle.

Aside from that I still have a couple of game design things brewing at the moment. Alas I am not ready to talk about those, because I don’t want to repeat the Gears debacle…
