Resurrecting An Indie Adventure

Back in the spring of last year, my partner and I started a new blog – An Indie Adventure – dedicated to reviewing the puzzle, adventure and RPG games that we both so love to play. Unfortunately, after the first few posts, we ran out of steam; or, more precisely, our lives kicked into a completely different gear, leaving us with very little gaming time (my own writing and this blog also suffered as a result).

Now, however, as you might be able to tell from my increased posting here, we’ve got a lot more time on our hands, and felt it was time to resurrect our neglected gaming blog. An Indie Adventure, therefore, is getting back on its feet, with the first new review appearing this week. If you’re at all interested in video games – particularly indie titles in the adventure and RPG genres – we hope you’ll check it out.

‘Chronicles of Tyria’ and ‘An Indie Adventure’ Update

I’ve had limited time to blog here recently, but that doesn’t mean I’ve been entirely lazy, just that I’ve frequently been more active elsewhere. Today, I just want to do a quick round-up of links, and let you know what I’m up to when everything is quiet here.

Firstly: Chronicles of Tyria. My story about a snarky asura thief called Amber is well underway now, with part 3 having been released a couple of weeks ago (and part 4 just awaiting a few tweaks before it’s ready to be posted). I’ve also written a couple of ‘one shots’ for the site, one-off stories about other characters, this time around written to a holiday theme. You can find them all with the links below.

Chapter 1: Part 1 – The Golem, the Thief and the Interrogator

Chapter 1: Part 2 – Investigators Don’t Do Subtlety

Chapter 1: Part 3 – Infiltrating the Inquest

The Future the Pale Tree Shows (written for Valentine’s Day, but not as soppy as that would imply!)

A Wintersday Reunion (and my Christmas short, or ‘Wintersday’ as it’s known in the world of Tyria)

Secondly: An Indie Adventure. This is my joint gaming blog, which has admittedly been a bit slow to get off the ground. The problem with writing a gaming blog is that you’ve got to find time to actually play some games before you can review them, and that’s been increasingly difficult recently. However, my partner in crime has stepped into the breach: his first review, of the game Super Meat Boy, can be found here.

So, like I said, not entirely lazy, and I will keep posting here (although my other difficulty at the moment is that I’m struggling for time to write as well, and this has always primarily been a blog about writing). I’m hoping to get a long overdue album review up in the next week or so, and hopefully it’ll be back to my writing – or lack of it! – after that.
