2008-02-15: Black and Green on the radar
Ryan Macklin posted an interview of me on his podcast show Master Plan on Thursday, February 14th. He asked me questions about being the designer of romance games, in honor of the holiday. That was a fun interview. Ryan, thanks for following through on it.
It must be February!

You're missing Michael Erb's posting of the reviews of Shooting the Moon and Breaking the Ice that he did for Graffiti:

Emily, I loved this game. I really want to sit down with you and talk about it sometime. It was one of the high notes of GenCon, and I hope you continue working on it.
Do you have a working table top version? Have you considered not having a table top version?

Thanks, Paul! Linkinated:
And awesome, Julia. I really want to talk with you about it. That was a wonderful session at Dreamation. Looks like the game I'll run at Intercon H in a couple weeks will have very different issues. (possibly running for poly-identified larpers!)
I plan on there being two versions of Under my Skin, though they live one worked so well that I can imagine not needing to finish the other. But there is so much to learn here! The games so far overlap in the overall premise and the set up only. The rules needed for table top are so completely different. It's a crazy design challenge, but I think I'm going to learn a lot about the different kinds of play from doing this.

Breaking the Ice was reviewed in Knights of the Dinner Table in Feb. They now have an indie game review column. They also reviewed The Shadow of Yesterday, and last month they reviewed Best Friends.
