Vaguely around Earth Occidental Standard Year 2014, the drift of interwebs lead my paths into collaboration course with Chaos Nova universe. I have since run a character in the forum-based space opera RPG (dispensing unsolicited advice about universe, life, and everything in the process), yapped along to countless online gaming sessions, and dug deep into the creative flow with editing, co-writing, and worldbuilding.


Time for another "Seeker" image quotes round-up! We're currently at chapter 5. (Here are the quote round-ups for chapter 1, chapter 2, chapter 3, and chapter 4.)

Last week I posted a bunch of image quotes, featuring the micro-excerpts from "Seeker's" first chapter. The video above shows the behind-the-scenes of some photos I've been using in the process. Below are the quotes taken from chapter 2.

So I have been playing ... (107). Lifeless Planet, vol2

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------  

When I started off with Lifeless Planet, my exploration-marathon ambitions were sussed out buy my failure to jetpack. So I (very carefully) looked up some instructions, and learned I had the jump mechanics all wrong. With that rectified, I kept pushing onward (while spending ample time just dicking around the terrain), and completed the adventure in one sitting. Enjoy!

As of mid-august, there are some fruits of collaboration to show off: we completed "Seeker"! (Check it out here!) Now the spread-the-word-mode kicks in. Over the months leading to "Seeker" release, I've become rather comfortable managing the @KaosNovaWriting Twitter feed, comfortable enough to play around and experiment with the different tools and media. I'd picked up tips on making image quotes from the Dark Treasury blog, and wanted to try making some for our cause.
A few self-imposed pointers I adhere to: 1) I'm no designer; keeping it simple, no fancy fonts. 2) Only using locally sourced photos (from myself and friends of ChaosNova). 3) For now, only quotes from within the book - in other words, we'll be spreading micro-excerpts.

Here's what I came up with based on chapter1. Apart from the starry background from NASA, the images here are all my own photos. (stay tuned for a quick making-of video.)

So I have been playing ... (106). Lifeless Planet, vol1

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------  

When I properly ended my self-imposed game-fast (because we completed "Seeker"! Check it out here!) I didn't immediately want to jump back into my ongoing, meandering longplay things (nor the recurring one-offs). Instead I looked for something short and moderately obscure, and first-person, preferably with a bit of Eastern Block connection, something that I'd already have in my waiting-to-play list. Lifeless Planet checked all those boxes, so I picked it up.
Here is the first playsession that ended with an embarrassing jetpack fiasco.
