Among many, many other things, I’m the series producer for Tin Man’s Strange Loves series.
Here's a re-post of the blog I wrote for Tin Man's site announcing the new game:
I’m the series producer for Tin Man’s Strange Loves series. I also wrote Strange Loves: Vampire Boyfriends. I’m excited to announce that Strange Loves 2: Hex Boyfriends will be out tomorrow and just in time for you to play on your way to PAX Prime!
As the producer of Strange Loves 2 and writer/producer of Strange Loves 1, I can assure you that you’ll get the interactive gameplay, compelling story, and beautiful interface you’ve come to expect from Tin Man Games. Strange Loves is our casual line, so you won’t find any dice rolling, but there are plenty of choices and probably some kissing, too. Written by author Lacy Wilson, Hex Boyfriends is a fun, romantic, supernatural gamebook. At the beginning, you can choose your character name and gender, then you’ll enter a story where you can be a powerful witch where you can, among many other things, cast spells, date dudes, and get into trouble with magical creatures.
Hex Boyfriends will be available on iOS and Android. You can find it (and Strange Loves 1: Vampire Boyfriends) on iTunes, Google Play and Amazon Appstore for Android. In celebration of the release of Hex Boyfriends, Tin Man Games have also reduced the price of Vampire Boyfriends to just $1 for the whole of the week on Google Play and the iOS App Store.
If this is up your alley, you’ll be happy to know that I’ll be doing three panels at PAX Prime and I’ll be discussing Tin Man Games in all of them. Stop by if you can! The first, on Sunday night at 7:30pm, will be a reprise of the popular Foreplay: Romance in Games panel from this year’s East where I plan to talk about the Strange Loves line and writing a romance games. We’ll also cover romance in a number of other titles as well. We’ll have panelists from BioWare, Press2Reset, and Nerd Appropriate there to chat about all of our experiences. On Monday at 10am, I’ll be discussing making Strange Loves a reality “It’s Not Too Dangerous To Go Alone! – Finding The Bravery To Do It Yourself” and the last panel is called “+10 Publicity: Marketing and Promoting Your Indie Game” and we’ll talk about just that: what you can do to make your indie game a success.
Hex Boyfriends will be available tomorrow. If you want to know more then please follow the Strange Loves twitter account @StrangeLovesApp!
