In case you missed it the first time:

If you are interested in getting an early look at Strands of Fate 2e, and getting an opportunity to provide feedback and potentially shape the game's development, now's your chance.

Sign up for the Beta! At this stage, everyone who signs up gets in.

Interested in Strands of Fate 2e? Interested in playtesting it?
Well then I've got some news for you. (In the link below.)

So yeah, I guess I suck at taking time off. Instead, I started developing the second edition of Strands of Fate.

If that's something you might be interested in, hit up the link below to learn a little more.

For the curious, this is what I'm working on for my day job.

So after a week with the Oculus Rift, I've got to say that I'm truly impressed.

Elite: Dangerous and Lucky's Tale are both really good. I haven't checked out Eve Valkyrie yet since, frankly, ED scratches that itch for me. That game is mind blowing.

I'm using an X-52 flight stick and throttle, Voice Attack to be able to issue voice commands to my ship, and the Rift (obviously). The end result is an amazingly immersive experience. The sensation of leaving a space port, flying through space, engaging the jump drive, approaching a planet, flying at high speeds through canyons and around mountains, landing, deploying in my rover, and riding around killing security drones and looking for minerals is simply phenomenal.

Once ED implements the ability to walk around on foot, I may never leave home. :)

And yet, I've got to say the most surprising games have been Metroid Prime and Zelda: Twilight Princess. Yep, you read that right. Someone released a VR version of the Dolphin Gamecube emulator, and both of those games play AMAZINGLY well in VR. Setup is a bit of a pain. But once you get it going, it's almost like they were developed for VR from the start.

Who would have thought the Gamecube would turn out to be one of the best sources for VR content? Crazy.

What a world we live in. :)

Happy day! Just received notification that my Oculus Rift is shipping early.

That's probably bad news for my productivity for the next week or so though. :/

Very interesting. +Sam Harris essentially describes Mimir from Nova Praxis on Joe Rogan's podcast.
