Stone Skin Press is a new fiction imprint managed by game designer Robin Laws. He’s doing some great high-concept anthologies, from new iconic heroes to action-movie H.P. Lovecraft to a thematic revival of Aesop’s Fables. They’re using Kickstarter to launch the line and you can get these great anthologies as ebooks.
The roster of authors is a who’s-who of RPG designers including Ken Hite, Rich Dansky, Dennis Detwiller, Rob Heinsoo, James Wallis, and many more. Including me — I’ve got a story in their book The New Hero vol. 2 that I can’t wait for people to read.
So please check out their Kickstarter and see what they’ve got. I think this is a really strong new fiction line from a talented editor.

My friend and collaborator Greg Stolze has a new tabletop RPG locked and loaded: Better Angels, in which supervillains are secretly possessed by demons and have to engage in cartoonish villainy to prevent their demon from engaging in REAL villainy. It’s a great, crazy premise and with this Kickstarter his publisher Arc Dream can get the game produced as a full-color ebook. Got $15? Then check out this new game by a brilliant designer.

Just finished the first episode of Telltale’s Walking Dead game. The adventure game stuff is about as dull as ever, but the writing, voice acting, and art direction are solid. None of it is really thrilling, but what is thrilling is choosing what kind of a person your character is while the clock ticks down as you make dialogue choices. It has that improv quality: you have to make a strong choice, right now, and live with it. That single piece of gameplay is the best thing about this whole experience and happily Telltale gives you a lot of it.
Kentucky Route Zero is the first project I backed on Kickstarter: an old-school adventure game about a mystical highway beneath the American South. The game is still in development by a couple guys in Chicago and they just posted this five-minute gameplay video. I’m really looking forward to this game, whenever it’s finally done.

Interesting article on a project that began as an arcade game circa 2001, was entirely hand-animated by dozens of laid-off Disney animators circa 2005, and finally released on iOS last month. It sounds like Dragon’s Lair except all your inputs are emotional rather than physical action.
The game is called The Act and it’s on sale in the App Store for $0.99 right now. I’m downloading it as I type . . .

Ace of Aces is one of the great tabletop game designs. In some ways it’s really a two-player computer game in paper form. Rick Loomis at Flying Buffalo is bringing it back into print after many years and his Kickstarter wraps up this weekend. It’s a terrific game of WWI aerial combat, easy to learn and fun to play. Get yours!
