Bloggers Wanted: Fake it until you make it

This month's bloggers wanted prompt is something we stole. You see, by stealing this idea, you have no idea how truly inept I actually am. By pretending to know what I'm doing, I have clearly used my ill-gotten status to meet such big-time ...

Bloggers Wanted: The Adaptation

Bloggers Wanted: Crowdfunded

Bloggers Wanted: Rituals

Each year, it seems that I find myself pulled to the drawbridge of a vampire's castle, drawn again to descending the depths of a dead alien planet, or that I find myself in a post-apocalyptic hellscape where angels and demons are at war. So...

Bloggers wanted: World building

One of the biggest elements that can make or break a game is its world building. World building can make relatively passable or even bad games into something memorable that gets by on word of mouth and buzz. A game can have that janky feeli...

Bloggers wanted: All good things
