Al'Rashad

A page-a-week webcomic which I have been working on with the fabulously talented Davinder Brar since 2010, currently at just under 200 pages and three-quarters of the way through chapter 7 of 8. MAY OR MAY NOT CONTAIN: Viking analogues, undeads, mouthy street urchins, horrendously giant baddies, flying carpets, lack of flying carpets, magic runes, monkeys, monsters, PoC heroes, treachery, pirates, and true love.

Minecraft Labyrinth Map

A few weeks ago my 8 year old daughter was set an assignment to bring an ancient Greek myth to life, and she decided to do the project in the game Minecaft. It ended up being something we worked on together most nights for a couple of weeks and we had a heap of fun. Now she needs something tangible to turn in, and some comments from other players would be ideal. So.. if you have the game installed and want to spend a few minutes enjoying our work please head over to http://labyrinth.tinla.com/ and follow the instructions. [more inside]

Herebe: all you need to get started is a great idea.

There are dragons in Silicon Valley. Real, flapping, scaly ones, with teeth and claws; the kind that'll burn your Lower Haight apartment to cinders before you can pivot your way out of there. What's more, it looks like they can be harnessed and sold as a service. Can you say "opportunity"? Herebe is a short novel about Silicon Valley, startups, the battle for ideas ... and dragons. It's my first, and I would love MetaFilter's collective opinion. You can buy it on Amazon.com.

CHECKSUM ERROR. CONTINUE? (Y/N)

I've spent a lot of the past year working on a sci-fi comic called "Decrypting Rita". I think it's pretty cool.

Cryptozookeeper

I spent five years making a graphical text adventure about cryptozoology. I cast actors*, created and photographed cryptids and (leveraging the magic of Creative Commons) listened to hundreds of hours of music until I had a 70-song soundtrack. I visited New Mexico twice to shoot on location and tried to make it as funny as possible -- as if Magnetic Scrolls were coming back any day now. It's called Cryptozookeeper, and while you can buy a two-disc pack, it's also available to download, in whole and for free, for Windows, Linux and OS X. [more inside]
