My “side” project
Over the past few weeks, I’ve been feeling a little down recently. I guess after recording almost 230 podcasts, you begin to wonder exactly how long you can keep telling people how crappy religion is.
Luckily, my broodiness has passed, and it’s been replaced with jubilation at a recent side project I’ve decided to take on. As some of you may know, I’m a huge gamer, and one of my goals in life is to make my very own old school video game. I was recently watching a documentary on Alexander the Great, and I’ve also been playing a shit-ton of older Genesis games, most particularly “Shining Force“. It made me want to draw again, and over the weekend I’ve been feverishly doodling concept drawing for what I hope will be my own Tactical RPG called “Alexander”. The plot centers around the Greek gods commissioning Alexander the Great to destroy the Persian God, Ahura Mazda.
I’m also planning on making a graphic novel companion, but as you can guess, this is all in the distant future. Nothing fundamental is changing with TGA, of course. All that I’m doing is adding a labor of love to the list of projects I want to do, and I’m inviting people interested in helping out to message me (a love of old school gaming is a must). In a few weeks I’ll be putting up a website dedicated entirely to the project where people can offer either their labor, or their cash for the project. In the meantime, enjoy some of the artwork I drew!
