Gah - I've been bad

OK, so lately I've been focusing on a development developing:

‘Line Pirates: Bane of the MultiVersal Corps 

Basically, it's an online Real Time Turn (RTT) Collectible Card Game (CCG) with a high-adventure, sci-fantastical military theme.  It also incorporates some elements that are normally found in Role Playing Games (RPGs), namely grid-based strategy and a strong narrative element.  We're aiming for high strategy, but low time commitment - a game played in 15-20 minutes.  We hope to alpha by Dec 2012 and release by June 2013, if we can get sufficient funding.  Check out our wiki for it if you want more details, although at this stage it's really aimed more for us to codify the ruleset than for users to start playing.

Anyway, I just wanted to say that, although it may appear as though I was swallowed by a black hole, I've just been temporarily distracted and will shortly return to my regular reading and blogging obsession.

Oh, and if anyone is interested in participating in beta testing or observing the creation process, let me know.  My partner and I are doing this mostly by email since we live in different parts of the country, so we've gathered a small group of people who want to be cced on everything to see how a game comes to live.
