#Blaugust2016 wrap up: Introspection on blogging
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 12:09 PM

It’s not quite the end of Blaugust yet, but I have a special post for the last day. So, I figured I’d do a wrap up today, and maybe beat the crowds of people writing posts like this in a few days. :)

So, another Blaugust has come and gone. As is my wont, I’m going to get a little introspective about what blogging means.

I wrote some new DLC for March of the Living
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 2:01 PM

My good friend Dave “Over00″ Toulouse released some new DLC for his game March of the Living. What you may not know is that I was the writer and narrative designer for the DLC. Dave provided a basic idea, and I fleshed out the story and wrote the content for it.

I’ll go into a bit more detail, but definitely go check out “The Three of Us”.

Wait… what month is it again? It’s BLAUGUST!
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 5:42 PM

So, it’s that time of year again, where I post a lot more often. Some people call it “the next sign of the apocalypse”, but most people just call it “Blaugust”. Especially since the world didn’t end when I posted every day last year for an entire month.

So, let’s gear up and get ready to go hard core and post… wait a minute, I’m getting a message….

Blaugust 2016 Super Relaxed Edition

Well, okay then. No need to shotgun the Red Bull, I guess.

“I’m not sure I understand”

Something a little different tonight. I hope you’ll humor me.

Here’s a bit of creative writing dealing with the things bouncing in my head for a while.

Let’s look at what you need to start being a game blogger.

Newbie Blogger Initiative 2016 next month
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 7:12 PM

So, the big news I read today is that the Newbie Blogger Initiative (NBI) is coming next month. That’s pretty exciting news, as I thing game blogging is a great thing, and having more bloggers is better!

Let’s talk about why you should join the festivities and start your own blog.

“Why can’t you add just one more thing….”
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 12:59 PM

One of my pet peeves is people underestimating the work that goes into game development. For example, people ask, “Why can’t you add just this simple thing?” not realizing that this one thing has a lot of consequences.

I’ll go into some detail about why one simple thing is usually not a simple thing.

What does it mean to think like a game designer?

One of the projects I mentioned yesterday is a book I’m tentatively calling “Thinking Like a Game Designer”. It’s an idea I’ve been kicking around for a while, and how seems like a good time to pick up my old notes and organize them into something coherent.

Let me talk a bit about my thoughts for this project.

Ask me almost anything!

Blaugust, day 22

Let’s get this party started, shall we? I’ll be monitoring the comments most of the day to day, and I’ll answer what I can.

Again, the one major ground rule is no questions about Camelot Unchained. Sorry, I’m not authorized to give out any information. I recommend you visit the main site, as there is a ton of information on there about the game.

For today’s post, I’ll answer a question already posed yesterday.

Return of the Newbie Blogger Initiative
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 1:06 PM

In grand Psychochild’s Blog tradition, I’m here to tell you news waaaaaaay after the fact. Anyway, this post is about the return of the Newbie Blogger Initiative! Do you write about game stuff, particularly MMOs, and want to get some attention to your writing? Want some experienced bloggers to lend some guidance while you explore the crazy world of blogging? Then this is the initiative for you!

Anyway, I signed up to be a mentor, so I should probably post something, right?
