The Steam Summer Sale is Fully On! And Frayed Knights is Half Off!

Posted by Rampant Coyote on June 24, 2016

Okay, that’s my quota for clever headlines for the month. Frayed Knights: The Skull of S’makh-Daon is half-off at the Steam Summer Sale. I heartily recommend it, even if the designer is a goober who takes too long getting the sequel out the door. If you’ve already got it, well, there’s lots and lots of […]

Massive Xchyler Publishing EBook Sale

Posted by Rampant Coyote on November 27, 2015

That includes the most recent anthology, Beyond the Wail, which includes one of my stories. I also have stories in two steampunk anthologies, […]

The Big Steam Roguelike Sale

Posted by Rampant Coyote on April 23, 2015

I don’t know whether to be proud or embarrassed over how many of these are in my library right now. Not all from Steam – I have some through GOG.com, some through Desura, and at least one stand-alone direct from the developer. Whatever… now, if you ask how many I’ve really, earnestly played to a […]

They raise the minimum price every day, so if you were waiting […]

Wing Commander III for Free?

Posted by Rampant Coyote on August 6, 2014

The good news: Origin is giving away Wing Commander III: The Heart of the Tiger for free today. The bad news: It’s a very temporary deal, so if you got here late, it’s already changed. The ugly news: It’s EA’s Origin online service.   I dunno. Even though I do have a rarely-used account on […]

The Semi-Annual Steam Feeding Frenzy Begins

Posted by Rampant Coyote on June 20, 2014

According to Gamasutra, this is the biggest, steepest discount yet on Steam. I’m somewhat emboldened by the fact that I haven’t yet purchased anything, but it hasn’t been a full day yet. And… before it’s over, I’m grabbing some Rocksmith 1 songs (which work for RS2014). But, as usual, I’ve not pulled the trigger yet, […]

Terra Mechanica “Virtual” Launch Party – There will be … SWAG!

Posted by Rampant Coyote on May 29, 2014

So this is something kinda different for me. Something I might take advantage of as an indie game developer in the future… Little indie book publishers deal with the same problems as indie game developers & indie game publishers. Events are important, but they can’t afford big New York City launches where they invite the […]

Indies, E-Books, and an Anthology Deal

Posted by Rampant Coyote on May 27, 2014

Xchyler Publishing (pronounced “Skyler,” although they often just call themselves “The X“), is running a sale this week in honor of hitting 1700 likes on their Facebook page.
