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]

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

Over the summer, I packed my hard drive with NASA technical documents and wrote a novella-length story about a manned mission to Mars. Now that and six other stories of adventure and romance are available as an ebook, of which we are very proud! [more inside]

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

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]

Many people cut their teeth on the imagination fueled text adventures games released by Infocom back in the eighties. Whispernet combined with the handy keyboard and the limiting browser made the Kindle perfect for a text-based adventures. We programmed an interface specifically for the Kindle that lets you play a handful of the Zork-like adventures that we spent many of hours of our youth. Save game is supported so you can come back at a later time without restarting.
Let us know what you think and how we can improve it!
