Some friends and I decided to get all communal and start a site where we could all post our own games and maybe even one day make a more ambitious, large-scale game together as a group. Our little indie game “studio” is called String Trees, and I’m probably overdue to post about it because Richard has already been putting out some impressive work for One Game A Month.

I’m glad to have this one finished. You can play it in your browser here.
I’m still working on my first game, but in the meantime I made a quick mockup of a board game idea so I could toy around with the rules and see what works. This thing was made in two days and is very rough, but I still consider it a success (enough so that I’m willing to post it here) because it actually turned out to be pretty compelling to play. It’s presented completely without explanation, so I’ll try to summarize the rules here. Continue reading Push-Off →
