I’ve been working on a project for a while now, mostly in between life issues like moving to Mexico and holding down a day job. The Trulon project is the brainchild of Johan Lillbacka who contacted me several years ago now about a collaboration. I liked the idea and wanted to work with him and so we embarked on fleshing out his fantasy universe, creating a story arc for a series of novels, and ultimately laying the foundation for other creative outlets for characters in this steampunk-with-magic style world.
Soon you will be able to experience some of what we’ve built by playing the game – Trulon: The Shadow Engine. It’s designed for young adults, but should be fun for adults too. For this, Johan worked with Finnish game makers Kyy Games, the creators of Trouserheart and Rimelands: Hammer of Thor. And later this summer, the first novel – coauthored by me and Johan – will be out. And if you’re in Finland, you’ll be able to see a live performance at Powerpark!
Well, I need to get back to writing! Meanwhile here are couple of links if you’d like more information.
