2008-02-17 : les animaux de la nuit sauvent le monde

How proud am I?

Marie Fournier was inspired by my game The Nighttime Animals Save the World to create a night light for a friend's new baby.

That's how proud. Isn't it beautiful?

(I had to go to the Wayback Machine to find the nighttime animals online. That's kind of a shame.)

That's so beautiful! I, um, might have to make a trip to the art store to get some paper now...

It's super cute.

Y'know...the right photos of it would make very nice illustrations for an ashcan of the game.

Nighttime Animals is an under-appreciated work of genius.  You should find a webpage for it somewhere!

Vincent, you really should put all those old games back up somewhere.  Just today I went digging around for Otherkind for a friend.

I especially miss having Toward One online.

Well, let me see what I can do. I have them all here somewhere. Give me a week or so.

Nighttime animals was the first time I saw a RPG that :
- could be played with children
- could be played outside, while walking in fact
- used things from the real world in front of you into the fiction

and, doing all this, transformed the real world into a magical world.

The only other RPG that I see doing something like this one is Ben Lehman's Land of 1000 kings.

Living with her, I can tell you that Marie would be more than happy to illustrate your game if you ever want to publish it in any form (online, PDF or paper). I am almost sure she would even make more little animals miniatures.

Did anything happen, here?  I haven't managed to find any current link for Otherkind.  :P

Ah, the Wayback Machine comes to my rescue, as well:
