Sluggish Morss: Pattern Circus intertwines eight strange alien tales

Jack King-Spooner's games are fascinating worlds to explore. Constructs of collage and clay, mixed media and minigames. Dream-like and melancholic tales both small and personal (Beeswing, Dujanah) or broadly philosophical as in his strange sci-fi Sluggish Morss series. For his next, he's aiming a little higher and turning to Kickstarter to fund development of Sluggish Morss: Pattern Circus, an action-adventure set in a strange alien…

Feature: Don't Call It Pretentious

On Beeswing, Joy In Death, And The ‘Grandma Money Shot’

Beeswing is a peculiar game. It's a Zelda and Earthbound-inspired RPG without combat, a personal game that's absolutely not about its creator, and a rumination on the nature of death that's not swollen with tearful woe. Also, it's made out of paint and clay and stuff. The successfully funded (though still on Kickstarter for about five more seconds) project from Sluggish Morss, Blues For Mittavinda, and Will You…

Beeswing Is A Handcrafted, Earthbound-Inspired Mini-Epic

Although maybe un-epic would be a better descriptor. Beeswing is the latest labor of love and ceaselessly wonderful oddity from gaming's most thoughtful madman, Jack King-Spooner. Previously, his mighty brain egg hatched to unleash the likes of Sluggish Morss, Blues For Mittavinda, Will You Ever Return, and a portion of Experiment 12 upon an unsuspecting populace. I honestly do not believe there's anyone else out…
