It’s been a few weeks, so I thought I would give an update on where things are with me!
Futurama: Game of Drones
A few weeks ago I passed my first anniversary working on Futurama: Game of Drones. The folks at Wooga are all great, and even though some of them have since moved on to bigger and better things, I continue to enjoy working with them every day. Plus, getting the chance to collaborate with Patric Verrone is amazing, even though he is an incredibly busy man. Here’s hoping I can continue to write gags about porn and Fox News!
Meanwhile, Pugmire passed its own important milestone, as I wrapped up a complete draft last week! There’s still a lot to do — I have to revise everything so it all lines up, and then I’ll have an editor go over it before I revise it again — but things get a lot easier from this point on. I posted a more detailed status on all things Pugmire on Kickstarter and the Onyx Path blog.
Earlier this month, Earplay got the chance to show off a teaser experience at the Grand Masquerade in New Orléans: a prototype for our upcoming Wraith: The Oblivion interactive audio story. We also launched Earplay on Amazon Echo, so if you have an Echo, go ahead and enable the skill and test out our demos. And maybe we’ll get the Wraith teaser up there as well….
I’m really looking forward to what’s coming up for Earplay. It’s been a lot of hard behind-the-scenes work, and it’s nice to finally get something out in front of people. I’m told all the folks who got a chance to play the teaser at Grand Masquerade had a great time, and I hope we’ll have even more amazing interactive audio experiences for both World of Darkness and Pugmire.
I had a wonderful time at Fan Expo Canada! It was certainly the largest show I’ve ever been a guest at, and it was only the second time I had the privilege of going to Toronto. I was on four panels and ran three games of Pugmire, all of which were well-received. I even got to meet a few Kickstarter backers, which was wonderful. There was always something to do, and I even picked up a little souvenir for myself from the dealer’s room. Definitely a worthwhile show!
That said, I realized that I’ve travelled a lot this past year, and while I really enjoy getting to see people, it’s also a lot of time away from getting work done. So, while I’m certainly not going to stop travelling, I am considering being a little more strategic on which shows I attend.
Speaking of shows, here are a couple I am planning to attend!
There’s a lot more brewing behind the scenes, but those are the highlights this month. I’ll try to make monthly news updates, especially now that more of what I’m working on is actually seeing the light of day. So, see you in October!
