Mysterious Projects and Online Resume

After working on it for a week, I realized my mysterious new project needs to happen next year to fall smoothly into the tempo of the story I'm telling.

So. Back to Sea++.

I've made an online resume for myself to showcase my game design and writing skills:

Tarot and Pie

I've mostly finished the area called the Lost Soul's Diner.

Eat pie, talk to lost souls, and play with a tarot card shark.

I needed (read: really wanted) graphics for the tarot cards, so found this non-copyrighted 18th century deck.

I'm not quite satisfied with it. If anyone has suggestions about how to get a bunch of quality major arcana images on the cheap, lemme know.

Will probably be putting Sea++ mostly on pause for a month or two to work on EMERGENT and another little project I have in mind for the Christmas season.

EMERGENT Group

Mostly worked on EMERGENT these last weeks.

I'm gonna talk less about it from now on, cause we're posting updates to this group:

In Sea++, I've been writing the Deep Web and programming a map for navigating in your web ship.

I've designed the Cthulhu of my game-world and she comes with her own puzzle.

Dark Ocean

Hookay! Back to Sea++

I've planned out the Deep Web and done writing and coding work for the darkest area.

I'm working as I go along on making all the areas mobile compatible.

It's tricky because I keep adding more custom mini-game type things.

But it must work because I love having the game on mobile.

EMERGENT

Here are some screenshots of the new game I'm developing with Josh Harrison.

It's gonna be a subscription based ARG (Alternate Reality Game) where you defend the world against an invasive force of demon aliens by roleplaying online, doing mini-LARPs, completing twine games, moving units on a gameboard that spans the nation, and picking up litter in your local parks.

We're scheduled to start testing the system in September.

We're pretty hype.

Miss Opal's Clockwork Heart

No new Open Sorcery update today.

Working on other things for a couple of weeks.

But here's something else with my writing.

I wrote the first story in the collection: Miss Opal's Clockwork Heart.

It is a story about losing your heart and how girls can be engineers.

Quick Break

The first large area in Sea++ is finished and with my alpha testers.

Here are some of the things they have said to me.

----

"I mean, I fixed the gardener, and took the memory, getting 1 life, which I used to heal the octopus."

"Someday I'll hate myself enough to solve 1000 crosswords to save the selkie that I accidentally made hate me via calling them out on their bitterness."

"I want you to know I am having an actual moral dilemma here on whether or not to kill this asshole."

----

I love my alpha testers.

I am taking a short break from working on Sea++ to write an articles, do a little freelance work, and work on a project I'm making with Josh Harrison.

It's called EMERGENT and we'll put out more details when it's closer to being complete.
