So I’m reading A Son of the Circus by John Irving right now. I used to love Irving, but as I grow older (and have more Irving reading experience) my… Read more No Bears But Lots of Beaver →
My grandmother died today. Just like that. She wasn’t sick, not that anyone knew of anyhow. It just happened. One minute I’m calling my mom about meeting up later, the next minute mom calls me back to tell me that my gran just died. I really don’t want to write anything about how it happened. Or when.

All that is family business and it doesn’t contribute anything to what kind of person she was.… Read more Death →
And we’re back in Germany. Seems like we’ve only been gone for a few minutes. The weather is abysmal, gray and wet and cold, and it’s impossible to imagine that just a few days ago we were in 35°C and the sun was shining.

Some people say that you’ve got to experience everything at least once, but I can now say with some certainty that they’re full of s**t. For now let’s say that the wounds have mostly healed,… Read more Crash Boom Bang →
Our new game, The Sea Will Claim Everything, is out! We’re both exhausted (Jonas a lot more than me), but we couldn’t be any prouder. The game will be available… Read more The Sea Will Claim Everything in a Box →
