May #1: JAMES

I leave you with the image of myself sitting here, surrounded by small black boxes with Iris’s laminated face on them, with 600 more boxes waiting for me in Bacchanalian abandon across the hall.

The Labyrinth Under the Skin

We took Cultist Simulator to Rezzed a week ago. Player-facing events are really useful for feedback. We got a very, very positive response, but again and again people fiddled with combinations that didn’t work. There’s a lot of trial and error, they said.

April #1: HOPKINS

Anyway, next sprint should be slightly less bonkers, so we hope to actually get some work done. Well, some more work than multiple daily patches and new art and important marketing events and oh you know. This and that.

THE EXPLORER’S BUILD

Dare you approach the very many Younger Sisters? Or brave the Soucouyants, and their oddly unbalanced gropings in the dark? The lure of the Mountains is strong; the sweet scent of the Cave of Candles finds you on the breeze; the great Eye of Ikirmawi stares unblinkingly into your dreams at night. Try – if you can – not to die on your trip.

March #3: GWENDOLEN

This sprint’s title comes from my favourite literary lady, Gwendolen Harleth in George Eliot’s Daniel Deronda. That’s a lot of names to open this blog with, but we did a lot of things, sooooo…

Groovy Droogs Consortium, a.k.a. March #2 FORSTER

Anyway, next up is the Explorer’s Build, due out on Monday 9th April. That’ll contain a host of new locations to explore, hazards to overcome (or, you know, be horribly defeated by), an avalanche of new tomes and manuscripts, and perhaps – just perhaps – a well-oiled door to the House itself… Stay tuned!
