A game by Heather Logas and her friends

Research Mode

Hello all. I’m sorry you haven’t heard from me the last few days. I have been sick, and sitting in front of the computer for any length of time has been making me nauseous.

I have continued working on the game by doing some reading. I’ve been reading more about Carl Jung, and have dug out my old Sorcery! books. The second book in particular, Khare: City Port of Traps, I am eager to replay (re-read? What is the proper term for these types of books?). I remember it being about a twisty labyrinthine city, and I might like to borrow some of the feel of it for BYCYE.

While reading about the Sorcery! books on Wikipedia, I found out about the Fighting Fantasy series, of which Sorcery! was apparently an off-shoot. They have recently been re-published so I’m going to have to pick up one or two of them.

It also seems like there are iPhone apps coming out for both Sorcery! and the Final Fantasy books (oh look, that one’s out already)! Will the presence of these apps be a force for good or ill for our game? Not sure. My hope is that these games will whet people’s appetites for this kind of content and that the deeper nature of BYCYE will draw them in…bwah hah hah…. Only time will tell.

Tomorrow: Back to work!
