As you read this, I’ll be in the halls at UK Games Expo setting up my booth for when the doors open tomorrow. How I have missed being at shows and can not wait to see some of you tomorrow! You’ll find me just past the main entrance to hall 1 at stand 1-724.

The best part is, when I pack up the booth and travel home next week, I’ll be heading straight to the airport as I’ve been able to book last minute flights to Origins. While I won’t have a booth at Origins, I will be there for the full 5 days and look forward to meeting more of you there and perhaps playing some games together.

Please don’t be afraid to say hello, I am at these shows to have fun and get to meet people.

An update on Frank

Throughout May I spent a lot of time planning for UKGE, finalising samples for Project Smoke (they look so good!), and I even managed to play some board games. I really enjoyed trying out First Rat which was very different to what I expected but fun nonetheless!

Until next time

For the past few years I’ve always worked on the basis of announcing games 3-weeks ahead of launching the Kickstarter but I’m thinking this time around I may be trying something a little different.

I’m still putting plans in place but perhaps next month I’ll have something ready to share.

I can’t believe we’ve made it to April and the fulfilment of The Isle of Cats: Don’t forget the kittens! has completed. It’s a strange feeling wrapping up a Kickstarter and I’m certainly missing it. Yet, with everything shipped I’m really excited to be able to start focussing on what comes next full time and I’m happy to be able to spend more of my day focussing on game design for a while!

Happy March! It's nearly spring here in the UK and I'm excited to start seeing some blue skies and baby animals running around soon! Over the past 2 weeks I have started fulfillment for The Isle of Cats latest Kickstarter and I am happy to confirm that Kittens + Beasts, Boat Pack, Explore & Draw, and a number of promos and other items are now available to pre-order in my store!

Happy New Year! I hope you, your friends, and your family had a great time over the holiday period and managed to enjoy spending some time together. Over Christmas I spent a lot of time thinking about the future and have started this year with several promises to myself, including...
