Well progress on Further Vistas has ground to a halt, plus I’m having trouble sourcing the artwork… so I might have to reconsider and think of something else in the interim.

Watch this space for updates!

Project Update   Leave a comment

Work is progressing on Further Vistas, though slower than anticipated. This is because I’ve decided to produce atlas-style maps of each planet, in both mercator and polar projections, and it’s quite time consuming! So far one planet has been completed – so 16 to go (plus star systems, plus alien races…).

Here’s a sneak peak of how the mapping will look, in this case for the planet of Oranto:

Update from France   Leave a comment

Traditionally, my summer holiday has been a good time for game inspirations, and so it has proved this year. After much deliberation I have settled on my next game project. It will be a follow-up to sci-fi resource Distant Vistas, focussing on star systems, inhabited planets and alien races. Provisionally titled Further Vistas, I hope to have it ready some time in the autumn.

Once that is done there will be another catalogue, which means another free game! I will be sticking with the recent Argor theme of free games, probably another RPG scenario/wargame combination.

Hope you’re all having a good summer (in the northern hemisphere at least!). Au revoir, as they say around here!

A cannon blast from the past – Vectis   Leave a comment

Ok, not too sure why but there has been a sudden surge in interest in Vectis, our Napoleonic War game that features a fictional invasion of the Isle of Wight. Most especially the printed version, available from lulu.com.

This is a quite a surprise as the game has been around for a long while, and generally sales are for the download version. But heck, I’m not complaining!

If by any chance you’re interested in the printed version of Vectis, just click here.
