The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated. Proof to follow.


It looks as though I'm really not the most diligent person when it comes to keeping a blog updated, especially when there's so little news to actually spread. Some people (storycade.com, I'm looking at you) even said that I have gone "mysteriously silent" in 2014. Truth is, I have been a little silent here, but there's not much mysterious about it.

The reason for my silence is mostly that the projects I've been working on since early 2015 have either been delayed, or they were not exceptionally noteworthy. The most noteworthy thing to report is the Bad Blood DLC for Seasons of the Wolf, a continuation of the story of Althea and Shea in Winter Wolves' Loren fantasy RPG setting. Any and all of the following elements may appear in said DLC:

Aside from that, I've been working at a classic Japanese-teen-themed VN with strong supernatural elements - that's the project that's unfortunately been delayed until 2017. I would love to tell you more, but I'd rather keep this to myself for now until production continues.

I've also started writing a Light Novel for a young publisher who approached me with a neat story idea. It's very much classic high fantasy with a twist. Book 1 is complete, and as soon as it's published, I'll be sure to mention it here too. But until that happens, again, I'll keep the silence.

So here's the one thing I'm not keeping quiet about:
This is The Photographer, my contribution to NaNoRenO 2016. It's a collaboration with mikey of ATP Projects fame - you may remember me recommending his still fantastic Ori, Ochi, Onoe to you in this blog. He had a ton of pictures taken in Venice and wanted to make something of it, and I had the idea of using them as a story about a relationship on the brink of collapse. So I wrote it, mikey put it into VN form, and the end result is what you see here.

Well, and that's already all there is to tell at the moment.

Oh, and one more thing.

I'm currently working for Unwonted Studios, writing the script for their latest cyberpunk-themed VN. More as soon as I'm allowed to say more.

Taleweaver out.
