Rampant Games’ Official Stance on “Let’s Play” Videos

Posted by Rampant Coyote on December 13, 2013

I thought I’d done something official about this already, but if I did, consider this a reiteration of my stance on Let’s Play videos: I love ’em. Please go ahead and make a Let’s Play video of Frayed Knights – or my ancient game Void War, if you really want to… Just make sure appropriate […]

Why I don’t review games – but I do want to talk about them

Posted by Rampant Coyote on November 4, 2013

I haven’t said it in a while, so I guess it needs to be mentioned again: I don’t really do game reviews here. I will do quick takes – little thoughts on a game as I play. And if something really grabs my fancy, or pisses me off, I may discuss it. Sometimes if something […]

Reminder: Guest Posts Wanted

Posted by Rampant Coyote on September 16, 2013

Hey folks – I’m heading out of the country this weekend (Friday), and can probably use all the help I can get as far as blog posts are concerned. I’m queuing up what I can, but as my community often seems more knowledgeable and skilled as I am anyway, I will appreciate any further submissions […]

Nuking BlueSnap

Posted by Rampant Coyote on June 14, 2013

I’m going to be officially canceling my account with BlueSnap (formerly Plimus) in the next few days. They’ve got some new policies that make them a very poor partner for low-volume indies (and courtesy of The Long Tail, since I quit using them as a primary distribution partner a long time ago, I’m permanently low-volume). […]

Downtime and Time in France

Posted by Rampant Coyote on May 14, 2013

Hey folks, Due to some problems with my hosting provider and a failure on my part to schedule today’s post in advance, today’s post will post tomorrow. I guess it kinda balances out with a bonus post on Sunday. I apologize for the downtime today, but apparently my provider was under external attack. Ugly. I’ll […]

A Very Special Frayed Knights 2 Gift…

Posted by Rampant Coyote on April 12, 2013

Okay, guys, we’re entering into the final stretch on the sale for Frayed Knights: The Skull of S’makh-Daon, here and on Desura.  I’m worried not everybody that would be interested in about it have heard about it. Actually, that’s not a worry, that’s an overwhelming element of reality. So for this weekend, I’m gonna make […]

From Whom Much Is Given, Much Is Demanded

Posted by Rampant Coyote on April 11, 2013

The ideas people have come up with for completely useless psychic powers yesterday was a source of amusement all day long. Thank you! Three winners have been emailed with instructions for claiming their prizes. Thank you to everybody who has participated so far.  And a big thank-you to the game developers who have contributed copies […]

Tactical Telepathicness … Telepathicity? Telepathitude?

Posted by Rampant Coyote on April 10, 2013

So my birthday was just over a week ago. And I’m still doing stuff about it. Yeah, that’s pretty much how I roll when it comes to schedules and deadlines. The sale continues, and the give-away continues.  Yesterday we had three people win copies of the outstanding RPG / TD hybrid, Defender’s Quest.  Apparently, the […]

Defender’s Quest! You Got Your Tower Defense in my RPG!

Posted by Rampant Coyote on April 9, 2013

I’m a sucker for Tower Defense games.  It’s sort of a subgenre of Real Time Strategy games (which I’m also a fan of, but I don’t have the devotion to play very competitively). In fact, I have heard that they got their start as user-created mods / levels for Warcraft III and other RTS games. […]

Is it an Original Sin, or Simply Forsaken Virtue?

Posted by Rampant Coyote on April 8, 2013

The sale on Frayed Knights: The Skull of S’makh-Daon continues this week, for 50% off here and on Desura.  Just in case you were wondering, unlike Sim City or Diablo III or the rumored next-gen XBox, Frayed Knights never requires you to be online in order to play. I’m getting to the point where I’m […]

RIP LucasArts

Posted by Rampant Coyote on April 4, 2013

My birthday is over, but the party continues!  Frayed Knights: The Skull of S’makh-Daon is on sale for 50% off right now via this site, and also Desura.  Even though I’ve been at the indie thing for a long time and know how it works, I’m still surprised at how many people I’d expect to […]

The Rampant Games Sale & Give-Away Continues! Day 2!

Posted by Rampant Coyote on April 3, 2013

Wow! First off, I want to thank everybody who sent me birthday well-wishes yesterday through all kinds of different methods. You guys rock. I appreciate it. For the record – in spite of it being a workday at Ye Olde Day Job (I need to sell a LOT more games to leave that one behind), […]

As much as I’d love to invite you all to the Brazilian churrascaria where I shall be dining tonight with my family, we’ll have to settle on something else. So here’s what we can do. Frayed Knights: The Skull of S’makh-Daon remains my pride […]

Don’t Buy Frayed Knights! (Er, yet…)

Posted by Rampant Coyote on March 31, 2013

Never thought I’d write that! This is not an April Fool’s joke. I don’t do those. I’m just saying if you haven’t bought Frayed Knights: The Skull of S’makh-Daon yet and have been holding off this long (REALLY? Why not? SHEESH!), you may want to wait just a few hours longer – until Tuesday. April […]

Posted by Rampant Coyote on February 12, 2013

Hey indie fans! I’m gonna be out of town next week, and while I’m trying to get some articles pre-written, I can always use some help. Got a rant or commentary relating to RPGs, indie games, adventure games, classic gaming, game-making, whatever? Please send it my way. You can use the feedback address. Or jayb. […]
