Greetings Fellow Readers! Welcome to another round of ranting. I have announcement regarding the Wednesday Rants, please read at the end, but for now let's begin.
So I signed up for Metatopia. I'm waiting on registration at the moment, but this a gathering of developers and tabletop fans to playtest prototypes. I went last year with 'Splatterbomb™' and had successful playtests and input. This year I will be bringing my deck building fighting game for blind playtesting. As soon as my registration is complete and I everything is in order, I will provide any information needed for those who are attending and interested in playtesting my game.
Right now, 'Splatterbomb' the board game is sitting on standby because I did not expect my deck building fighting game to be in blind playtesting stages this soon, which is good. So I want to have two complete tabletop games to submit at the same time. Sorry I am not going to bring it to Metatopia, all of my time and energy there will be for my deck building game.
As for the proof of concept "animated" video, the audio voice work is done, I just have to make the "animation" and fill in the blanks. It's a bit stalled due to real life and my deck building game. However, I can say that it was very interesting writing a screenplay. It went 15 pages long, but I'm not sure how that will translate to video, since my research showed that 1 page equals 1 minute of screentime, if I read the correctly.
Peanut Butter Jelly (Splatterbomb™ Theme) and the Splatterbomb T-Shirts are still available at Amazon/iTunes and Spreadshirt.com respectively. Grab yourself a copy today.
[The Compilation of Prose and Thought]
So I finished gathering up all of my stories that I ended on Kindle and compiled them together with 'The Compilation of Prose and Thought'. I chose to remove the 'Thoughts on Writing' segments from the book, because I felt I haven't achieved anything that would warrant me talk about writing without having a handful of house published in my belt. So, I removed that and folded in my Kindle releases with unreleased work. There will be a variety of prose to read from poetry to world building to short 5 chapters stories. It is a decent sized book. This book will be focused on finding a house publisher rather than be released on Kindle or other outlets.
[Arcana Magi Universe]
Season 7 will start in October on Fictionaut. Stay tuned to 'New and Notes' for dates and times.
The updates for some of the stories are coming soon. They will be up, so please hang in there.
'Arcana Magi Universe Short Collection' is still available on Amazon Kindle with exclusive shorts not found on Fictionaut. Grab your copy today.
So the stories have ended on Kindle except for 'The Impossible Man' and 'Arcana Magi Universe Short Collection'. They are both still available and ready to be read. Be sure to grab yourself a copy today.
So, right now I am in the middle of a real life scenario that is helping financially. Between this, 'Arcana Magi' Season 7, my table top games, 'Splatterbomb' proof of concept, comic book scripts and now Metatopia 2016, I have no more room in my schedule to write the Wednesday Rants for the rest of 2016.
So Wednesday Rants is going into a hiatus until 2017. Please check 'NEWS and NOTES' for any detailed information. I thank you for your understanding and patience. Fall 2016 is going to be a very overwhelming season.
That is all for the rants. Thank you for listening.
