Hey all, so the news has actually quietly been out for a couple of weeks now, but I only realised the other day that I was allowed to announce publically, Wonderland Nights: White Rabbit’s Diary has been shortlisted for another award! It is the Sir Julius Vogel Award for Best Professional Publication/Production and you can find out more about the award and my fellow finalists here: https://sffanz.nz/the-sir-julius-vogel-awards/sir-julius-vogel-award-finalists-2021/ . Super stoked to be amongst this amazing group working in diverse fields!
So what else has been on my plate this week? Well, we are unfortunately a sick household this week. But James has been using his time well. Before he fell ill he attended an amazing event at a marae. I wish I could have been there! The event was Te Reo o te Rēhia and it was all about Maori gaming, be that a historical perspective, or an invitation to new cultural perspectives, or using gaming to celebrate Te Reo. He took a lot of inspiration away and met new people who are keen to collaborate and share knowledge. We’ll definitely be going next time they run an event!
James has also been working on our next board game idea, which I will keep under wraps for now 😉
I have been working on this: https://pokemontimecapsule.wordpress.com/ which I hope you will consider following if you are interested in Pokemon at all. James has been taking some amazing photos in Pokemon Snap, which has been very entertaining for us over this past week. And I get the sneaking suspicion that I am getting Pokemon Shield for Mother’s Day ヾ(=`ω´=)ノ”
I have also been working on White Rabbit again, specifically in regards to the Ratalaika Games release. German and Japanese have been regression tested, and I have made a bunch of improvements there. I still need some more files before Spanish is complete. But one day soon hopefully I’ll be testing the Switch release! Eeee!!!
