Quiet Stories’ Book Club: December 2018

These are our game recommendations for the month of December 2018. Since we are now preparing for Christmas, this month we will highlight some great games you can play with your kids or family.

This is the Quiet Stories’ Book Club, a monthly series where we challenge you to beat at least one of the games on our list. We’ll have expansive and time consuming games, for gamers on a limited budget. We’ll have smaller, more digestible titles, for gamers with little spare time. We’ll showcase a variety of genres and platforms. We’ll recommend the newest, most talked about games, and some older titles that you probably heard about but didn’t give the time of day to. The point is, we’ll have something to cater to everyone’s needs. Hopefully you’ll end up trying something new or discover a hidden gem.

My Experience with Kickstarter

Introduction

 

Earlier this year I decided to investigate the difficulties and realities of marketing and launching a video game related product. The aim of this experiment was to see if it is possible to find success without the backing of a large company in the video game industry.

Telltale’s games have impacted my career, my life and how I view the medium of video games. Some of Goombastomp’s writers and I got together to discuss some of our fondest memories with their work. Here’s what I had to say.
