January 2010


If you’ve got a couple hours to kill and have nothing better to do than to hear me prattle on about damn near anything, then boy do I have a treat for you! Recently I’ve had the pleasure of being interviewed by Ogre over at Stabbing Contest. We talk about everything from the allure of molten metal to tactile elements in games to playstorming and JiffyCon. There’s bits and pieces in there about practically any game I had a hand in creating, and some I wish I did. Gossip. And so much more.

Seriously, it’s two hours: part 1 and part 2. I simply cannot shut up.

You can now purchase the PDF of Time & Temp from IPR.

You no longer have to wonder, “Is now a good time to buy the PDF? Or is Eppy in the bathroom, on vacation, or otherwise inaccessible? I want instant–and I mean instant–gratification. How can I have that if there’s no guarantee that Eppy’s sitting at his computer right this very second just waiting to e-mail me my PDF? Where can I get my fix right the hell now?”

Well, now you have your answer. IPR: Where You Can Buy Time & Temp: Paperless Office Edition. (They don’t know it yet, but that’s their new motto.)

Dark times are upon us. Time & Temp: Unbound Edition has sold out at IPR. But one mustn’t panic! There is stimulus package in the works. There will be more work for more temps! It’s just a matter of time.

I’ve got a new print run coming and IPR should be back in stock soon. But if you are impatient, I have a few copies of the game left. If you can’t wait and want to get your hands on one of those now, e-mail me to find out about the availability. ($20 plus shipping and handling. Please mention in the e-mail if you need the game shipped outside the continental United States so I can figure out your shipping.)

And as always, you can purchase a copy of the PDF Time & Temp: Paperless Office Edition for $10 by clicking on the shiny gold button. Plenty of those those to go around.

Last year, Time & Temp was reviewed on the Voice of the Revolution, and I’ve traveled to the future to tell you of the present about this opportunity to hear about the game! (Okay, it all happened like a week or two ago, but technically it was last year and technically I did time travel into the future at a rate of 1 second per second. So settle down.)

The erudite and observant Nathan Paoletta of ndpdesign has brought to my attention to not one, but two absolutely delightful web comics about time travel and Nazis by someone not named Winston Rowntree.

The first demonstrates that it is not by Brown Chronometric Engineering, Inc., company policy alone that the universe protects the sanctity of its history.

The second is just bad-ass.

The rest of Winston’s collection is worth perusing, too. Enjoy.

NPR’s Studio 360 is celebrating the new year with a delightful medley on time travel, including a number from the enchanting Janelle Monáe, tidbits on the science and fiction of time travel, as well as brief discussion on what the commute might be like. Worth checking out.
