Seas of Scred

Seas of Scred title

A few months ago, I wrote the first in the Forging Seas of Scred articles. Sadly, I didn't continue the practise - but I did continue the game. Seas of Scred went on hiatus for a while as PAXAus drew near and other things (including a trip to Japan & Hong Kong) demanded my attention.

Seas of Scred

A little while ago, I started working on a sequel to Quarries of Scred. While that game (Fields of Scred) has since been frozen, I chose to move along with the franchise and have been working on the next entry - Seas of Scred. This entry will also be an arcade style game, featuring very harsh gameplay and randomly generated play fields.

Splitting my Twitter account

Recently, I split my twitter account into two variants: @DarkestKale and @LightestKale. This has been done for a very specific reason, which I will now disclose.

2014-06-28 - The Galumph

Drip.... drip.

It always made that sound, deep within the lair. It was impossible to escape, try as the Galumph may - it could never withdraw from the sound.

Drip.... drip.

Stretch and squish... one way or the other, the wet, fat sound of splashing continued

Dr-CLUNK.

Ah. Slowly extending out a tendril, the Galumph reached upward. It would appear, dinner had just arrived.

Scred!

It has been a while since the last State of the Quarry Address. This is mostly due to my absence for a month and a half, combined with wedding preparations (Thank you all for your well wishes - both events were awesome). There's been a few developments, so this is an attempt to bring things to light.

Quarries of Scred 1982 has launched

A while back, I received a bit of a surprise, and a laugh when Kamil over at Kactus Games sent me a copy of Quarries of Scred 1982. He meant it as a joke, but with my blessing and encouragement, the Kactus folk have pursued it.

Scred!

... and we're back. QoS has now been up for sale for 2 months! It's been crazy. I've learnt so very, very much. Let's look at the chart first:

It's starting to look like sales are sliding down into a 'resting' position. There's a few sales (about 1 every second day), with some nice bumps every now and then, but overall, the initial large spikes seem to be over. There's a few things I'd like to point out, that can't be seen easily from the graph:

Scred!

So, how is Scred going so far?

In short, it's going pretty reasonably. 128 or so copies have sold (the numbers get a touch fuzzy when you try to account for some of Paypal's screwups, etc) and almost the same number have been given away. Let's have a look at some stats:

2014-01-08 - Terrible Story Challenge - 001 - Sueberpunk

Sueberpunk

Writing challenge time, but this time with a difference. The challenge is to write a Cyberpunk short story (~700 words but not over), that wholly embraces and runs with the Mary Sue trope.

In short: Neuromancer, Burning Chrome, etc - with you as the overwhelming star.

Hopefully, my submission will be in this evening.
