Frayed Knights Now Available!
A thrill-junky rogue who considers defying death the best alternative to boredom.
A cute but scatterbrained sorceress with destructive tendencies.
A tree-hugging nature-priest who wonders why everyone can't just get along.
Together, they are going to save a kingdom from destruction...
...if they don't kill each other first.
I'm not sure what else to say. You folks who have been following the development of this game - well, half of you have been helping me test, and the other half probably know more about the game than you would if you'd already played it once. But the pilot episode of the indie RPG Frayed Knights is now available for download. This is a short "demo" adventure - a single quest which should probably take anywhere from a half hour to two hours to explore.
Let me know what you think. And I'm going to see if I can't sleep for a week... (I wish...)
And I apologize - as announced before, the pilot is Windows-only. A Mac version (and probably Linux) is planned for the full version, already in development.

I wish I could say it was all I had hoped and dreamed of, but ... well, anybody who's ever released a game knows that it never actually gets DONE, it just gets released. But I'm pretty proud of the results. And if people aren't just being nice to me on the surveys (which is always a possibility), the results have so far been pretty positive.
Downloaded. I'll play through it later tonight, then take the survey and plug it to all and sundry.
I hope the verbosity of my feedback wasn't too much to take in one reading. Cheers!
