Tales of the Rampant Coyote

Adventures in Indie Gaming!

Time off, and time on

Posted by Rampant Coyote on October 20, 2016

I have a couple of days off, to match the time off that my daughter and my wife have off. Things at Ye Olde Day Jobbe have been pretty nuts. Good nuts, but exhausting. I know I can use the time off to spend the time with my family, and get some writing and game development done. Go me!

Okay – catch up time. More of a reiteration of stuff, but here goes:

#1 – I’ll be showing off Frayed Knights 2: The Khan of Wrath at The Leonardo on November 11th from 7:00 to 10:00 PM. Honestly, I’m so tired of that demo level that I really, really wanted to re-purpose an existing new level to show… but that just meant a whole lot of additional work to make a poor 5-10 minute introduction to the game. A pretty useless endeavor and wasted effort. The first level of the game really is a solid introduction, as it was designed to be, and so while I’m tired of it, not many people have played it, so we’ll keep with that. It’ll sport some improved special effects and a mini-map, some bug fixes, and some features that might be disabled so as not to get too confusing for a demo. But otherwise, the same thing. But if you HAVE NOT yet played it, I’ll be there with several other Utah Indie Game developers at the Leonardo Museum. Come check out the museum and check out some games! The Leonardo is at  209 E 500 S, Salt Lake City, UT.  (I’m personally hoping to sneak away for a few minutes and check out their new Flight exhibit).

#2 – I have a story called The Priests of Shalaz which will be published in the winter issue (#4) of Cirsova Magazine, coming out at the beginning of December. Issue #3 is out now!

#3 – I have another short story due out before the end of the year in an anthology, but details aren’t ready to announce yet.

#4 – I will be at the Utah Winter Faire on December 2nd – 4th, selling and signing books. Hopefully I will have copies of Cirsova #4 by then to sell as well. 🙂

Aside from that… I’m pretty much going to be living at the office until Thanksgiving. Again, it’s a good kind of busy (CONTRACTS! NEW DEVELOPMENT! COOL TECHNOLOGY!) but it’s long, long hours. Ugh. Expect Blog posts to continue to be not-quite-every-weekday as they have been the last three months. There are simply not enough hours in the day.
