Sometimes I write essays.
My wife and I have been madly in love for more than a decade. But because of kayaks, I'm very grateful that my wife and I played "Halo" together.

We made this game. We'd like to make a digital version of it. We would very much like your help in spreading the word. 
Batonk! is the sound a robot makes when it runs into something. (and a delightful video game we want to make for you!)

Clark Freeman plays the inimitable James Frost in FREEQ. Love Frost or hate him, Clark's a hell of an actor and if you're in LA and want to see some new theater, I suggest you go see his new play.

Asa and I would like to tell you a little about our HOT NEW THING. Re:Active Comics is a collection of what we're calling "active comics" - pushing the boundary on what we think interactivity means for the world of sequential art. It's available TODAY for FREE for the iPad, and this is only the beginning. The video shows it off, but you can also go try it yourself here:

The official trailer that went up for our new game did not do a super good job of showing anyone what the gameplay is like. So we cap'd a quick little demo gameplay with our producer playing CLUSTERPUCK.

The music is by badass dubstep producer Bankai and it designed by the rockstars over at iHobo. And we're super, super proud of how much damn fun this game is.

Probably the coolest article that's ever been written about something I made. 
FREEQ is an audio-focused radio drama set in the future, but it was never designed for players who couldn't see. Until they asked.

Albuquerque is closer than LA. FACT.

Trailer for our first post-AAA release, FREEQ. An audio adventure game about eavesdropping, time travel, and classic radio drama.

WOO! - Very excited that the interactive comics app Re:Active that we released last summer on the iPad is an honoree of the 2013 Webby Awards. We're on a list alongside the Yellow Pages and a campaign for Mazda, and were chosen from more than 11,000 if I understand correctly. 

I really, really like my job lately.

I fucking love Shawn McGrath. I like hanging out with him, I like working with him, and I really like his games. And this is a fantastic interview.

It's been announced! Application Crunch (formerly Pathfinder), a game I've been working on passionately for the past two years with USC's Game Innovation Lab and the Center for Higher Education Policy Analysis, is a finalist at the IndieCade Festival! The other finalists include some friends I have MEGA respect for, including the guys at CGC and Capy, so it's an incredible honor. AND colleague, sometimes Psychic Bunny, and co-designer Elizabeth Swenson's game "The Witch" is ALSO a finalist, so high fives all around!

Hope to see you all at the festival!
