Ridiculous Fishing and the Hunt for Rad Octodad

I have a story titled Ridiculous Fishing and the Hunt for Rad Octodad in It’s Just a Game, Volume 3, curated, edited and produced by Elizabeth Simins.

The story is about Ridiculous Fishing, but it’s also about the joy you can get from allowing games to retain some of their mystery instead of going straight to a game guide at the first sign of difficulty or mystery.

So, if you want to read that, as well as work from 18 other contributors, you can buy it here. I’m not in them, but you can also buy Volumes 1 and 2 here.

That game is Dark Reign: The Future of War.

Curbstomper – Middle of the Knite

I’m waiting for the Kickstarter campaign to fund a game where everybody on the planet has been turned into a shambling developer in dire need of your money to make their dreams become a reality. It’ll be like DayZ, but with more scammers.

But enough of that, let’s look for some worthwhile projects.

Remember, it’s your money, you don’t have to give it to them if you don’t want.
