Fifteen Monsters All In A Row

A couple of years ago, my niece (then 5) and my nephew (who was 2), wanted to design a computer game, so we designed a computer game. Then I spent so long getting round to actually making it that now she’s 7, and he’s 4. But at least it got made, so I’m not that terrible after all. Just quite slow.

So here’s Fifteen Monsters All In A Row (It’s made in TWINE so should work in pretty much any web browser).

Now Fifteen Monsters All In A Row is a game about fifteen monsters, all in a row. Can you make your way past them and reach the end? And more importantly, will you do it nicely, or horribly? It is, I suppose, up to you.

This game contains 15 monsters (all in a row), several secret monsters (occasionally in a row), multiple solutions to every problem (almost), some exciting stories (occasionally), at least two jokes, and even a super secret special ending.

And also a mystery mon.

Estimated Playthrough Time: 10 minutes

(This exciting monster isn’t in the game, but is standing on a list of secrets, or maybe spoilers, from the game. So that’s why he’s here.)

1. This was designed in 2018, and made in 2019, and then bugfixed in 2020
2. No one knows who the mystery mon is
3. Or how it got there
4. Or what it’s doing there
5. But it is there
6. Somewhere

The New Brothers Grimm

Somehow my A Thousand And One fairy tales project has reached Tale #100 today, and to celebrate that I’ve decided to make some new tales explicitly out of old ones, rather than just sort of generally out of old ones.

And so, in The New Brothers Grimm, I take sentences, paragraphs, and fragments of original Brothers Grimm tales, and then re-assemble them into something new.

The First New Tale
The Second New Tale
The Third New Tale
The Fourth New Tale
The Fifth New Tale
The Sixth New Tale
The Seventh New Tale
The Eighth New Tale
The Ninth New Tale
The Tenth New Tale
The Eleventh New Tale
The Twelfth New Tale
The Thirteenth New Tale

Notes:

1. All of these were made in February and March 2020
2. They were all made using sentences from the Jack Zipes translations used in The Complete Fairy Tales collection, published in 2007 by Vintage.
3. Various minor changes to nouns, tenses, names, etc, were made to keep things consistent.
4. In a similar way to the In The Terminals Of Minraud trilogy of Burroughs cut-ups I made last year.
5. Which I thought might be interesting at the time
6. But which proved not to be interesting at all
7. To anyone
8. But me.

This Film Is 100 Years Old

This Film Is 100 Years Old is yet another website of mine, this time dedicated to watching and reviewing films that are 100 years old (or more)

There’s five or so reviews there already, and hopefully a few more each week. There might be a rush of stuff towards the end of the year as I try to cram in as much of 1919 as I can. Or there might not be, you never know.

Places In Space (Volume #1)

Places In Space is an episodic ultra lo-fi science fiction serial detailing a voyage of discovery through the solar system and beyond. Features some jokes, some sadness, occasional moments of beauty.

This volume collects the first 30 episodes into one volume, which you can either have for free as a pdf, or for actual money (although not much of it) if you’d prefer, from itunes (99p) and/or amazon (154p).

If you’re a subscriber to my patreon you can get these versions for free, too. Which I’m sure you’ll agree is very exciting and exceedingly generous (you’ll alos be able to get a few other things, too, like Destination: Mars, Spiders Are Wonderful, and The Saddest Bear Of All).

Places In Space Volume 1 (itunes)
Places In Space Volume 1 (amazon)

__________

Notes:

1. Places In Space Volume 1 ran from May 2019 until November 2019
2. The reason for the slight price discrepancy between itunes and amazon is due to their lowest price points being slightly different.
3. But both versions are basically the same as each other (and the pdf), just slightly modified to fit their standard/recommended screen dimensions
