After months of work, the team at Arkalis just shipped the second episode of the Stargate SG-1 Adventure Game. I have really enjoyed being part of this project, and cannot wait to finish episode three.
After 3 long years, Mech Mice the tactical strategy game for kids is now online.
“You are not a game designer until you ship a game.” – Me.
For almost 3 years, I have been working on Mech Mice. I want to personally thank the many people that made this game happen.
First, I want to thank you, the fans! After leaving Club Penguin in 2010, I asked you to help me develop my next game. Your comments and feedback shaped my ideas and Mech Mice was born. You patiently watched Mech Mice grow from concept art, to a book. The book became the launchpad for the game. A team was gathered, we refined the game. You joined us in the Beta, and destroyed millions of bugs. Thank-you.
Every year I plan one big adventure. This year was the famous Bowron lake circuit with my dad and two sons. We paddled 112km, 12 lakes, 10 portages and 5 rivers. No internet, just my notebook and pen. Lots of time to consider new games and rework old game mechanics.
Above was one of the most amazing board games that I have discovered. Someone hand carved an entire checkers game from wood. The board was a log with the two sides split off. The surface was burned and the white tiles were carved away with an axe. The pieces were sticks chopped into little discs. Black had bark, and white had the bark removed. Amazing.
