Rising to the surface
September 23, 2011
Spaaace has been in stealth mode for over a year, running silent and deep, but after a month at periscope depth we have resurfaced, and we’re ready for action. Projects are piling up already—almost all of them on the QT, but we can talk about the following:
- James has been working on two short-form RPGs, Cop Show and Alas Vegas and is talking to publishers on both sides of the Atlantic about them. His very short form RPG Here On Business (short enough that it fits on the back of his business card) was downloaded over 1500 times in its first 24 hours.
- We’re premiering a new game of trade and translation, Universal Exchange, as part of the Sandpit event at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich on 13th October.
- James is speaking at the Story and Games conference in Vienna on 27th September, where he will be announcing something very cool. About stories and games, inevitably. You may remember that he published the first serious journal on the subject, Interactive Fantasy, back in 1994 so he’s got history in the subject.
And more to come. Stay tuned.
