So I've not been here since May 2020. Storisende, my intended last game, is from April 2018 and I managed almost two years to not invent another game. Quite commendable I would say, but alas, all good intentions must pass.
I may be excused for Chess+ (Nov. 2019), a cooperative effort with Nick Bentley and not really an invention.
But in July 2020 a casual remark by Stephen Tavener (of AiAi) led to a Loca, a Draughts funny based on a hybrid king/man piece. It's a capture roller coaster towards and endgame. Collateral damage of course, but playable with generic material, so why not. But it was the start of a new wave and before the end of the year there was:
Migong, a cooperative effort with Luis Bolaños Mures.
It went so fast that none of these have an app yet, but they all will have one shortly.
The first one wil be of Cannons & Bullets, my first 2021 game.
It's a mixed bag but it seems I'm still alive .
