Darkness, and other goodies

I was thinking the other day. You know what Telepath RPG: Servants of God could use a little of? That’s right: darkness! Of course, that’s only one of the goodies I’ve added into the game over the past week. Another is the ability to skip characters’ turns in combat, then…

Voice acting underway!

We had a 9-hour marathon recording session on Saturday! Several of the actors voicing characters in Telepath RPG: Servants of God (specifically: Danielle Forrester, Marshall Stern, and Nancy Howland Walker, voicing Malis, Arman, and Mother, respectively) were in attendance.

A good review?

As a game designer, sometimes you receive news, and you’re not sure whether it’s good news or bad news. For example, Telepath: Psy Arena 2 has just received its most positive review yet! But it’s posted on a site called HarryBalls.com. Um, yeah. From the review: The care Sinister has…
