A short hiatus

Hello gentle readers! You may have noticed that the site has been a bit quiet this past couple of weeks–that’s because I’m gearing up to release a game of my very own, an undertaking which sucks up a surprising amount of time. Since I’m the only writer for this site, that means coverage is on […]
