Retrospective...

Wow, I have been terrible at keeping this thing updated, haven't I? In fairness, the blame lies entirely with Twitter. It's just so handy!

Ahem. So, in the weeks since my last post here, Technobabylon has been released, and we've been seeing positive reviews from players and publications/websites, so I'm very happy with that. The paranoid part of my psyche was always panicking about how people would react to it, but now we've at least got vindication for what we've made. And cash too, that's important.

So, what to make next? Good question, depends what kind of style I settle on. Lots of plans for more Technobabylon things, but of course, I'd want to make sure it was done properly - that's what kept the previous one in the production pipeline for so long. Following a trip to NYC for the game's launch party, it sounds like Wadjet Eye are interested in more of it, so who am I to disappoint people?
