The King of the Wood

I'm proud to have a few bits of writing (look out for the books lying around) in 'The King of the Wood' by allen. I was already a big fan of his previous game 'Good Morning, Commander' so I was really excited when he asked me to contribute and found out we were very much on the same page.

I'm thrilled to my marrow to announce that a new story of mine, 'Agda', has just been published in New Dead Familes #7. The strength of the other writing in this issue is phenomenal (a personal fave is 'The Value of Sea Urchin Heart Ice Cream') and my humble thanks go to multi-talented curator Zack Wentz for including me.

Anyone who reads 'Agda' might like to know that it is in no way autobiographical - my wife is wonderful and thankfully not given to acts of extreme sexual violence - but it is, in its own quiet way, one of the most personal things I have written. Any comments on it will be deeply appreciated.

I've also started work on a small game designed to teach me the rudiments of coding and pixel art so that I can see things from others' points of view more easily when collaborating. Anyway, I'm really enjoying the experience and hopefully I'll have something playable at the end of it. Here are a few little animations from the work so far:

A G-man

 A go-go dancer

 A Martian

  A crime scene

 A femme fatale

The progress of the game can be followed here.
