JAN #2: BRITOMARTfeatured

Happy allegory, everyone! Britomart, as any fule kno, is one of the many faces of Elizabeth I in The Faerie Queene, representing chastity, which Spenser shoe-horned in late on in the writing process as it became more and more apparent that Elizabeth wasn’t going to marry anyone.

OCT #2: VAN HELSINGfeatured

Happy Halloween, Believers! I’ve just finished Roger Zelazny’s A Night In The Lonesome October and highly recommend it if you’re in the market for some spooky All Hallow’s escapism from a world-class author who’s putting his feet up and drinking a big glass of goth.

OCT #1: UDOLPHOfeatured

First things first: an announcement! We released simplified Chinese last month, which was an extremely weird but also wonderful experience. Once we’ve a few months of data I’ll write a deep-dive into the numbers, but for now, we have another long-awaited localisation to announce: RUSSIAN.
