It’s waiting for you, lurking in the darkness, and you have no idea what you’re getting into. The horror has arrived.Mythos: The Beginning has finally been released into the world. … Continue reading

The Downside of Nostalgia [Repost]

“Back in my day” is a popular phrase that has become increasingly common in recent times. It’s probably not that recent—I’ve read older books where the author bemoans the newer generations—but it’s becoming far too common, so much so that it really needs to be addressed. Just have a look at Google Images. Back to…

Mythos Update #2: Length and Progression

It’s time for the second Mythos: The Beginning update! As of this week, I’ve reached two important milestones in Mythos: The Beginning‘s development. Firstly, last Monday marks one month since beginning work on the game for the Indie Game Making Contest. Secondly, at the time of writing, Mythos has finally reached 50% completion.

Indie Game Making Contest 2014

Degica, the publisher of RPG Maker, are holding a game making contest to celebrate National Game Development Month. The rules are deceptively simple: spend a month making an hour long game in any genre — the winner gets a cosy $10,000. Last week, I said I wanted to take a break from game development, but … Continue reading

Path of the Dead by Timothy Baker [review]

As you guys must know by now, I’m somewhat obsessed with zombies.

I own multiple copies of all the George Romero movies (even the crappy ones). … Continue reading

New Beginnings

The ill fated game.

Wow. It sure has been a long while since I’ve given an update on One Night 4, hasn’t it? According to the information on the title screen, the last demo was released in April 2013 — over one whole year ago. In the meantime I made the move into commercial game development and even released … Continue reading

The Horror of Blood Lake

I have an announcement to make: I still occasionally do this writer thing. In fact, after a long and torturous battle with procrastination, my new novel — Blood Lake — finally lives. I’m definitely not Stephen King, but after releasing Sun Bleached Winter it was always my intention to try my hand at a straight … Continue reading

Pretty Birds [Short Story]

Get ready, folks. It’s been quite a while since I’ve posted any of my writing on this blog, and this particular story’s not for the faint of heart. This is Pretty Birds, a semi-literary horror/crime story that I completed as a final year university creative writing assignment. It later got published in the 2014 edition … Continue reading

Shadowmen [Short Story]

This is the last piece of writing I submitted as part of my creative writing degree. It was for a class on non-fiction writing, and the task was to write a creative essay exploring a topic of my own choice. Of course, given complete free reign to write about anything, the horror writer in me … Continue reading

One Night has been ported to Mac!

Hot on the heels of the Legionwood Mac port that was released last week, One Night has now been ported to Mac OS thanks to the efforts of the Jammed Gears Productions team, finally making it possible to enjoy some good old fashioned survival horror on a MacBook. I don’t know anything about Macs or … Continue reading
