friend who always played as Oddjob, you’re not invited.
Finally, this week also marked the launch of the latest issue of the [lock-on] gaming journal from Lost in Cult. Many reading this will know that Lost in Cult is an official friend of The Week in Games (not sponsored, to be clear), and that I’ve been a big fan of theirs for a long time now. This latest issue is a little bit more special to me personally however, because… well, I’m in it.
I had the pleasure of interviewing Journey Art Director and Giant Squid co-founder Matt Nava a couple of months back and wrote an article about Journey itself and the state of art design in gaming generally. I’m a huge fan of Matt’s work, so this was a big deal.
There are so many incredible writers, artists and designers involved in this project, so I’m humbled that some of my words will be featured alongside them. A huge thank you to any Lost in Cult folk reading this for the opportunity.
[lock-on] Volume 004 is funding as we speak. If you’d like to learn more you can check it out here
