Dankmeme Swamp and its Discontentsfeatured

Jay Wigglesworth Jensen writes: “I was interested in your name tier for Cultist Simulator. However, I’m concerned about whether or not you’d find my name suitable- it’s Jay Wigglesworth Jensen, and me backing on that tier is, honestly, contingent on getting my middle name in.

The Juniper and the Crownfeatured

Most everyone who cares knows, but I thought I should recognise it formally here: Cultist Simulator was funded in a smidge over twelve hours. This is a lot better than I expected. Almost 40% of the pledges so far have come from a mailshot to my old Failbetter fanbase, and I want to publicly thank Read more

I was aware that the first three volumes were republished as separate editions, but I hadn’t expected ever to see them. I was excited – but also rather alarmed – Read more

Ideas are seeds, not jewelsfeatured

There’s not much point blogging during GDC – only like six people will ever read this – but it’s timely today and I keep meaning to blow the dust off this thing. Failbetter, the company I founded and later tearfully sold, is concluding a very successful Kickstarter for their next project, Sunless Skies, a narrative Read more

Cultist Simulator: the Alpha and the Whyfeatured

This is the side project I’ve been working on for the last few months. It’s really only an alpha: just a sliver of content, rough edges on the UI, some bugs. In an unusual commercial strategy, I’m going to halt development on it next week and not touch anything for some months. This is annoying for Read more
