Who will rule hell? No longer Vic Davis and Cryptic Comet, creator of the RPS-beloved turned-based strategy game Solium Infernum. In a post over at his blog, Davis explains that he’s leaving computer game development behind in order to take his boardgamey design skills off to the land of actual board games.
Why? “I’ve been selling computer games for over 7 years and it’s been a great ride,” starts the post. “Selling games directly from this website has been an increasingly difficult task. My programming skills are so tied to an aging and abandoned development platform that making even a niche title like my previous games is a dubious proposition at best. So I’m leaving the digital space and moving over to the card board arena where I hope my design skills can shine.”
Off to that damnable temptress world of card and plastic. Oh Vic.
