The Inflicted

I’m very excited to announce the launch on Indiegogo of ‘The Inflicted’, a horror game for PC by the hugely talented Ville Nousiainen, for which I’ve had the honour of writing some dialogue and story. I may be biased, but I think it’s fantastic. Click on the picture below for a closer look – all support greatly appreciated!

In an effort to shepherd my straying creative impulses into the one place, I've decided to have a crack at National Games Design Month. I'm going to try writing a full game in Inform 7 by the time December arrives. It will be a slightly surreal take on either highwaymen or superheroes. Or, very possibly, superhero highwaymen. I'm just not sure yet. Whatever the case, I get to use this beautiful logo:

I aim to post about my progress every few days and hope that any lost souls who stray into this corner of the interweb will pause a moment to offer encouragement or suggestions. Or even to jeer at my deluded designs - all feedback is welcome!

I'm also going to try to review some similar projects - there are so many great game/story hybrids around at the moment...
