We also talked about a rather complex topic: Romance and romantic relationships in games and stories. We touched […]
When Tee Morris emailed us to ask if he could talk about a game he’d recently discovered, naturally we were excited. It’s one that both taught him that card games can be amazing, and that he could have fun whether he was playing with his friends or his young daughter. … Continue reading
The cave was dark and cold. Outside the sun was beating down on the arid ground, yet the prophet huddled into the corner shivering. It had been over a month since the angel spoke those heavy words. Over a month’s wandering on the ravens’ leavings. Since the dread proclamation was … Continue reading
