Indie Press Revolution

Indie Press Revolution has recently picked up our CRPG Legerdemain as one of its newest titles. They are a game distributor specializing in independently produced, creator-owned pen-and-paper roleplaying systems. This could open up roguelike-style games to a whole new market, so we are very excited about that.

If you haven’t purchased a Legerdemain cluebook, you might be interested to know that IPR is selling a PDF of all the game’s printed materials for cheap. You can show your support by purchasing one; good sales keeps us on board at IPR and helps us pick up steam to write other games.

You can check it out here.

Best regards,
The Phenomedom Tourist Bureau

Artist Wanted

Roguelikefiction is currently seeking an artist to draw tiles for our CRPG Legerdemain. Those of you familiar with the game (or roguelike games in general) will know that the entire world is rendered in a motley collection of letters, numbers, upside down question marks, trademark symbols, and some of the more bizarre glyphs that Unicode has to offer. This is how it has been since the beginning and future versions will preserve this tradition.

But to widen Legerdemain’s appeal we are looking to add an alternative representation that would render the world in a graphical manner, and for this we need an artist to furnish tiles. If this is something you’d be interested in, please send us an email with your rates and your vision. Precedence will be afforded to candidates with prior gaming credits and/or a deep familiarity with Legerdemain itself. 

In the meantime, you can support us if you haven’t already by purchasing Legerdemain’s official cluebook and Phenomedom world map. Our first edition has almost sold out so grab yourself an original while you can!

A SIEGE is coming…

Just a heads up that the Southern Interactive Entertainment and Game Expo (SIEGE) will be taking place Oct. 3-5 in the Hyatt Regency Suites in Marietta, GA. SIEGE is an ambitious three-day affair full of game companies great and small, presentations by speakers in the game industry, and much much more. SIEGE’s emphasis is on promoting and fostering electronic entertainment and game development in the Southeast.

Find out more by visiting Register online ahead of time to avoid the lines. Roguelikefiction will be there so come on out and say hello!

Greetings from Dragon*Con, and a note to Mac users

Well, here in Atlanta we’ve almost reached the halfway point at Dragon*Con and it has been an absolute blast. A big thanks goes out to everyone who has fanned the flames of indie game development by showing their support for Legerdemain here at the Con.

If you’re in town this weekend drop by and see us; we’re in the Marriott Exhibition Hall, Booth 208 in the Marquis Ballroom.

And a note to my Mac users who have had trouble getting the game to run from a CD: everything is better than it seems. Turns out my .command file isn’t as flexible as it could be, if you just copy everything on the CD to the *root folder* of your ‘Macintosh HD’ then the .command file will cooperate smoothly. Copying to the Desktop is not enough; you need to make sure that the /Legerdemain folder is at the root of your filesystem (along with /Applications, etc.)

Feel free to use the contact info on my business card if you have any further questions.


World Map/Cluebook available soon!

Been playing for a few hours? Refreshed by a game that doesn’t cater to corporate marketing requirements and didn’t cost $20 million to make? If so, you should know that is now accepting donations as well as advance orders for official Legerdemain merchandise!  Please consider giving your support and promoting the advancement of indie-game development!

Those of you who have already ordered via snail mail, word of mouth, or cryptic botanical gifts will have your orders fulfilled in the coming weeks.
