As we close out 2022 and embark on a new year, I look back on the many dozens of projects I've worked on as an editor and can't help but want to put a spotlight on some of my favorite ongoing projects that I've had the pleasure of seeing go to print and digital in 2022, as well as show off some of what I have planned for 2023!
Call of the Void: Blackhart Manor (Comic)
April 2022 marked the successful completion and backer fulfillment of the indie title Blackhart Manor, the latest installment in the Call of the Void series by Gilbert Deltrez & J.L. Giles, and featuring special guest Marinus Reininga.
This one-shot story centers on a training drill at a derelict manor that spirals into a world of Lovecraftian-inspired terror for a team of firefighters.
As the editor of this inspired series, I hope you're all just as excited as I am for when the next one-shot story is officially announced in 2023!
Galactic Rodents of Mayhem (Comic)
The year also marked resounding success for another project headed by Gilbert Deltrez as the Galactic Rodents of Mayhem have continued to make a splash on the indie scene with its 90s morning cartoon-style space capybara action!
2022 saw the re-release of the massive 100+ page volume 1 both in omnibus and split chapter mini-comics complete with variant covers and behind-the-scenes info that backers would be able to find nowhere else.
All of this is of course in preparation for the unveiling of the volume 2 omnibus campaign as the story continues!
Unmasked Truths (Videogame)
In late 2021, I also had the immense pleasure of signing on as the head writer of a videogame project currently titled Unmasked Truths, a murder-mystery game inspired by hit properties like VA-11 Hall-A, Danganronpa, Ace Attorney, and Persona.
While the original goal was to create a 20,000-word fangame, the project has blossomed over the course of several months into an original and for-profit game. It currently sits at a respectable 85,000 words and counting, and assets and new team members have been steadily rolling in.
While I can't go public with much information yet, I'm definitely looking forward to continuing work on this indie game in 2023 and beyond, and hope you'll all be there when the game is made public!
I've been given permission to make public a selection of assets and information including character splashes and designs from the beta phase which can be found HERE.
Skylight Stories Kawena (Novel)
In terms of my personal writing and those who have been patiently waiting for updates on my personal project Skylight Stories Kawena, I am happy to announce that I've been making steady progress and am even working on getting music composed to create media for advertising the story at the time of its release!
It's been a long road, but even with all the writing and editing jobs I've been filling my days with over recent years, I've not forgotten about any of you or my longtime goal of publishing this story!
