Crowdfunding My Steno Tutorial Video Game

So I never really posted to LJ much even at its height; this was always just a reading account for me. And even though traffic has fallen catastrophically (it's really only half a dozen of you plus Samuel Pepys that ever post in this place these days), I still check LJ several times a day. I guess it's a reflex.

So on the off-chance that any of my 81 LJ friends still haunt these halls, I thought I'd post a link to the crowdfunding campaign we've been working on since last July.




It's a suite of four steno tutorial games. A playable demo for one of them has already been developed, and half of the money required to finish it has already been raised. The other three are stretch goals and we're a long way away from funding them, but there's still 40 days left of the campaign, so who knows! Maybe we'll tap into a rich seam of need for a retro-style fast-twitch typing game that uses music and platforming to teach stenographic skills!

You can see a video of our lead dev playing against himself (qwerty versus steno) here:



Many many thanks for any contributions of cash or signal boosting that y'all can make among your friends and gaming communities! I've been dreaming of this game suite for six years now, and I'm really, really hoping we can make it happen.

So the LJ feed for my blog hasn't been working for the last several months. Probably a lot more of you have RSS readers than when I first got the LJ feed, though. As far as I know, the RSS feed is actually working, so you might want to just head over to the blog (http://m14m.net/haberdash/) and add the feed to your reader. While you're at it, download the Pride mix I made, as long as you're over 18 and don't mind a bit of bawdiness.

My blog is now syndicated at myrrhash! Use the comment link on the left side of the screen if you wish to join the discussion (such as there might be) already in progress. If you use the regular LJ comment button, I won't get emailed about it, so there's no guarantee I'll see the thing.

Heartfelt props for this to the lovely skogkatt.

Hullo. This page is pretty unspoiled, for better or worse, 'cause I only got a Livejournal account to post on QueerOperaPunks. What I really spend all my idle flibblings on is my blog. There should be plenty there for your delectation. Or, uh... look, to tell you the truth, it's mostly just dumb puns and lusty ravings. But, y'know, if that spins your beanie, it'd be lovely to have the company.
