Reviews, Awards, and Plans

Hey All,

It's been another busy couple months with lots going on in both the writing and game development fronts. With writing, I'm making good progress on the next novel and I'll try to put the first chapter up on this blog soon just so everyone can get a sense of what it will be about.

There's also been a few more reviews of Shadowcursed that have popped up on the web.

Here's one by the Movies & Manuscript blog:

Here's another by The New Podler Review

On the game development front, the big news is that I just won the grand prize in Square-Enix's recent Thief level design contest. Here's the video I submitted of Requiem which turned into the winning entry (huge spoiler warning):

I'm really flabbergasted to have won, and want to thank everyone who voted during the contest. It's really appreciated :-). One of the prizes I got was a trip to the E3 gaming expo as well as a trip to visit the development team behind the recent Thief game at Eidos Montreal. I'll try to put up photos of both as they happen.

I've also been hard at work making a two-part sequel to Requiem. The first part is fully done, and the second part is well underway. Here's some screenshots from player AluminumHaste:

Finally, my brother and I are putting the finishing touches on an indie edutainment game which I'll hopefully be able to reveal here shortly. So, lots going on and hopefully lots more to come.

Vote for Shadowcursed!

Hey guys,

Well this is pretty great news. Big Al's, one of the larger indie book review sites on the web, has just nominated my novella, Shadowcursed, for a Reader's Choice Award!

I'm actually pretty flattered just to have won the nomination, but with enough votes I might actually win too. I'd be forever grateful to anyone who went and gave their vote to Shadowcursed. By voting you also enter a giveaway where you can win some nice prizes, so it's win-win all the way around.

To vote, just go to this site and in the Fantasy category check off Shadowcursed:


After the contest is done I plan on doing a new update post. I've been keeping busy, starting on my next novel and also putting together another Dark Mod level. Here's a teaser screenshot of the level in the meantime:
