Hello, friends and fans! It’s been a little while, hasn’t it? Sorry about that! I have not been idle, I assure you (I’ve written at least two manuscripts unlikely to see the light of day, fled the path of a hurricane, into the aftermath of a fire–and wrote my first game!–which is what brings me here today.
Skystrike: Wings of Justice is an interactive novel in which *you* are the hero. The game launches officially on November 10th, from Choice of Games, but it already has a page on Steam, where the preview is now available so you can play the first chapters and get excited for the rest. There will also be a live playthrough on Friday, October 7th. I’ll be there, hanging out in the chat and ready to answer your questions.
Yes, this is a bit of a departure from historical fantasy, or even archaeological thrillers. Everybody picked up something new during the pandemic, right? This was mine.
What to expect: Remember those choose-your-own-adventure novels? Or not…in this interactive fiction, you take on the role of Skystrike, a superhero who’s come home to roost. You select your origin story–spooky museum, meteor crash, biochemical laboratory, or Victorian mansion–and choose how to confront the RatKing, a sinister newcomer threatening your home town. It’s a new adventure every time! Check it out on Steam and add it to your wishlist! (cover art by Kim Herbst)
