A what if…(Inglorious Bastards)

Inglourious Basterds spoiler below. It’s well known that all of Tarantino’s films take place in the same universe – this is established by the fact that Mr. Blonde and Vince Vega are brothers, everybody smokes Red Apple cigarettes, Mr. White worked with Alabama from True Romance, etc. As it turns out, Donny Donowitz, ‘The Bear Jew’, is the...

Coming full circle

So Vincent Baker made Dogs and Mechaton, and I felt Dogs was a huge influence (die mechanics) on Marvel, which I have been hacking into a Mech combat game…..

So I was reading through this thread… http://www.story-games.com/forums /discussion/16959/what-could-be-the-sweet-spot-for-the-number-of-procedures-in-a-game#16959 And it got me thinking about the game I am working on.
