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 and joy. While I’m all excited about the sequel and everything, Frayed Knights is one of my greatest accomplishments – a culmination of a childhood dream. Sure, I’ve made games that have sold more (a lot more). But this “little” indie game is the biggest game I’ve ever worked on, beyond the old AAA titles that cost seven digits in budget. I’d like to share it.
So, first of all, I’m putting it on sale for the next two weeks. From now until the 16th, Frayed Knights: The Skull of S’makh-Daon is 50% off through Desura and BMT Micro. So if you still haven’t played it, this is a golden opportunity.There are no codes, just a 50% discount for a few days. And don’t forget – the strategy guide is still free. And it’s a lot more than a strategy guide. Like the game itself, I kinda went waaaaaay overboard when I wrote it.
My frustration, your gain.
Okay, next up: Many of you reading this blog are seasoned veterans of Frayed Knights. In fact, I know some of you (not just the testers!) have played through the complete game several times. You guys are awesome. So for you guys – and for some of the folks who are just CRPG experts in general – I’m going to run some trivia contests over the next couple of weeks. The trivia will usually be about Frayed Knights (especially dealing with points that may have bearing on the sequel), but not always. Prizes will include some free games (some may require that you be on certain services, like Steam or Gamers Gate), or a chance to contribute details to the Frayed Knights sequel.
At the end of the two week period, I’ll be announcing a few more details about Frayed Knights 2 (including its official title… which a couple of you have known for a very long time, like since FK1 was released).
Anyway, it should be fun. I just hope I can keep up…
So here’s the first trivia contest. Please email your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org. Use the subject line, “April 2 Trivia Answer”. Be specific! I’m going to be drawing randomly from the correct answers (I expect a lot!), and the winner will be revealed tomorrow morning. Please – if you don’t want to prizes, don’t enter the contest. You’ll have until midnight Pacific Time to answer the question.
Today’s contest is for a free copy of the original game Torchlight via Steam. So if you don’t want Torchlight 1, or don’t use Steam, you can sit this one out…
It’s an easy one. But it’s a two-part question, so don’t mess up and only give half an answer. Here goes…
A sentient, disease-ridden, and exceptionally nearsighted race of rodents have infested WHAT farmhouse in Ardin (the family name), and what is the name of the evil god whom they worship?
Okay, we’ll have the answer, the winner’s name, and a new contest tomorrow morning. Be sure and get your answers in by midnight Pacific time (1:00 AM my time).
In the meantime, have fun!
