time!

Hi I'm Michael. I like to make little tabletop and video games and talk a lot about old computer games and gardening.

I also helped start an indie game collective in Michigan, USA called Locally Sourced that you can check out here (linktr.ee/locallysrcdmi).

Also consider checking out my Michigan indie game compilation zine!

The adventure game podcast I just started released a new episode!

In May we played the game Flight of the Amazon Queen by Interactive Binary Illusions, released in 1995 for MS-DOS and Amiga. You can listen here:

And if you would like to join us for Riven month, here is an invite to the Discord:

Finally able to pick some raspberries from my garden and 😭😭😭 just the best

Years go by, but the closing credits music from the Amiga CD32 version of (Sid Meier's) Pirates! Gold remains the most delightful 90s artifact. 🔊🎶💿🏴‍☠️⚔

Indie Bundle for Abortion Funds is NOW LIVE

100% of the proceeds from this bundle will go to the National Network for Abortion Fund's Collective Power Fund, which moves money directly to abortion funds across 20+ U.S. states, with a particular focus on the South and Midwest.

The Indie Bundle for Abortion Funds includes almost 800 works by over 600 developers, writers, artists, and creators, and you can pick it up until July 13th here;

Given his history of treating developers before, I kinda sorta have an uneasy feeling about George Broussard getting really into adventure games tbh

I have a little solo ttrpg called Chill Out in this bundle raising money for abortion funds

There's also this other bundle raising money for charity too

Portrait piece made for Gubbdata 2022! In the process of moving my niece wanted one of my old paintings of a bat decked out in jewels so I felt compelled to do a piece in homage. 🦇

I really need to make time to make a game for the Playdate. It seems fun.

Yay, recorded the pod for Flight of the Amazon Queen so I can chill about that now. I guess next I need to do one for Citizen Sleeper since that month just finished. I'm having fun scheduling times to talk about adventure games/IF though

New month, new game! In July we're playing 1997's The Last Express.

Designed by Jordan Mechner (Karateka, Prince of Persia) this adventure game features a unique style using rotoscoping

I'm tired from being on for 8 hours but also Indiepocalypse #30 (very cool alternative games bundle) just came out.

Preparing for recording a podcast episode on Flight of the Amazon Queen tomorrow and thought this interview with one of the main devs was interesting
