Oh my gosh you guys. I know I’ve been back for close to a week now, but man do I feel like I’ll be playing catch up forever. Part of this, though, is because two projects I am helping out with both kicked off as soon as I got back. While I am very happy to be working on such great projects, it has meant that I haven’t been able to post here as much as I’d like.
If you are interested in checking out what I’ve been up to instead of writing my PAX Prime posts, my good friend Osama’s game Heroes Never Lose: Professor Puzzler’s Perplexing Ploy has just launched their Kickstarter campaign. Long time readers of Gamerwife may recognize the game as that puzzle game Rick and I played at an IGDA demo night almost two years ago. Please give it a look if you like comics, puzzle games like Tetris and/or fighting games.
Next up, I’ve jumped right into my role as Community Manager/Press Liason for Children of Zodiarcs, a tactical JRPG with board game elements currently in the early stages of development. We’ve got the project up on Square Enix Collective, again, if you wanted to take a look and show some love.

And finally, I have been absolutely BLOWN AWAY by the response to the #Geeky Confessions post & link-up. There’s no time limit on this one, so if you’re a blogger and you have some geeky confessions you need to get off your chest, GO FOR IT!!
Your Kickstarter: Band Saga – Roguelike action game where music generates the gameplay with a delicious pixel art style. Also, it kinda reminds me a lot of Scott Pilgrim (book, film & game).
Wonderful thoughts on identity and avatars from the always amazing, Leigh Alexander.
These stunning pixel art dioramas by Octavi Navarro leave me breathless. Something I’ve never said about pixel art before.
Your weekend project! Build a cat tipi!
