I finished a beta for the Global Game Jam. "$10 to Destroy the World." You can download it here:

It's a short, interactive fiction. It may be my "get off my lawn" moment. Contains obscenities appropriate to the characters.

 A whole new year's waiting for you, people. Be careful out there. Be good. Be joyous!

For the last six months, I've been working on a card game. Today was the first time I felt a design for it was worth keeping. It's a good feeling. It's going to be a very cool game. Big business soap opera set in the 1950s.

Hello, I hope a friendly introduction is appropriate for the Discussions thread.  I'm Keith Nemitz. For the last ten and more years, I've been designing and shipping video games often noted for their board game like mechanics.

Recently, I've begun my first table-top game, an LCG inspired by Mad Men, but instead of the 60s, my game will be set in the 50s. I've put about six months into the design so far, and I'm finally at the point where the system supports the big-biz soap opera experience I wanted to achieve. There's still tons of work ahead, mostly playtesting and balancing card ideas, I expect.

Your advice on how to interact appropriately with and support the people here would be greatly appreciated. I'm certainly interested to playtest your games.

This article is about negative self-talk—that is, the inner voice that tells you that you're stupid, etc. /// BIG NEWS: This article made the "front page" of The Coffelicious, a collection of blog posts chosen by as "some of the best articles on medium"!

I could use your help keeping it on that page (more popular articles last longer there)—just go to the bottom of the page and click the "heart" icon to vote. Many thanks!

(FYI, you must join to vote on articles—you can read them without joining, though. Medium publishes lots of quality writing, so you can find interesting reading there, and you can publish things there, too!)

Went to the framer's market today. Got a real sweet deal on some articles of confederation.
