JAM: A Devblog Series – MS Paint Jam 2k17 (Part 1)

Hey guys, WriterMonkey here. Some of you might not know this, but I’m actually an independent game developer on top of talking over video games and begging people to watch me talk over video games. I have released one title, a little card game called OfficeDungeon (also available as a print-and-play version here, if you’re curious and don’t want to spend more than a dollar), and it has been moderately successful. Not bad for flying by the seat of my pants.

After that, though, various things have ended up in development hell. A couple tabletop RPGs, an expansion/revision for OfficeDungeon, a couple board games. It’s been difficult for me to work on these things, and there is literally only one thing that’s been missing from my projects.

The YouTube Roundup! 8/15/17

Hey guys and gals, WriterMonkey here!

So, a little over a month ago we launched the Dead in Decatur YouTube Channel and, due to a little oversight by yours truly, never even made mention of it on the website! (Go me!) I’m going to fix that right now in a semi-regular segment to let you know what you’ve missed: The YouTube Round-Up!

WriterMonkey Streams:

I’ve been streaming games every Wednesday at 12pm CST and would love for you to join me! If you can’t join in because of work, school, fending off a zombie horde, or nap time, don’t fret: the entire show is recorded and put up on YouTube the same day for your enjoyment.

Right now, I’m working my way through Destiny in anticipation of Destiny 2 coming out this September. Here’s the playlist of what you’ve missed so far.

Thursday Thunderdome

Another WriterMonkey show, Thursday Thunderdome has me playing online multiplayer games and trying not to be terrible. There’s a variety of games on the docket, so maybe something will tickle your fancy:

Destiny 2 Hype Stream

Yeah, I’m a bit of a fan of Destiny and am looking forward to Destiny 2. Sue me. But also join me and SB10K as we take a look at the first story mission (and maybe get sidetracked by Mass Effect):

That’s all for the YouTube Round-up today! We do have some more shows coming down the pipeline, so be sure to subscribe to Dead in Decatur on YouTube for regular updates!

Heroicon 2017 Gameplay – Snake Oil!

Murf, WriterMonkey, and an extremely bearded newcomer we kidnapped named Jesse play a rousing game of Snake Oil at Heroicon. In the cuthroat world of door-to-door scams*… err, sales, only one can be victorious!
