The trilogy is complete!
The tale of two immortal brothers working in a Canadian tavern has reached its conclusion. From their battles in the streets of Halifax against the Chaos demons, to their globe-trotting escapades against the Titans, “Destroyers of the Universe” takes Jesse and Nigel several steps further into the Great Beyond, on one last trek to get everything back to normal. The Rapture, the Angel of Death, the forces of Hell – even dinosaurs – will hinder their quest across the nine afterlives to find God and reunite their family.
You can purchase “Destroyers of the Universe” on Kindle, along with the other books in the series:
On a special note, I want to thank everyone who’s been supporting my writing. It’s been an arduous journey finishing my own trilogy, with a lot more rewrites and grammar-checks than I’m accustomed to. In fact, there’s probably enough deleted chapters to fill a whole other novel (i.e. an early version of the second book had half the story center around Queen Cleopatra running an underground fight club). This book marks the final chapter in the series.
I’m moving onto a much bigger project in the near-future and will post about it as soon as it starts. Until then, a lot of my time has been spent doing overtime at work for Disney’s “Elena of Avalor” (I think they’re deliberately keeping me away from Ducktales for very good reasons). I also have a new adventure game project in the works which my schedule permits me to spend 10 minutes a day on. While I’ve mentioned it on and off on Twitter, there’s no official announcement here, but… why not?
Coming in the next twenty years from Box of Mystery: Do-Gooders.
More on that later when it starts being playable.
This one took a while, didn’t it?
My first book sequel is now available on Amazon (with a free promo running from June 4th to 5th, 2016). Returning to the city of Halifax, the story follows the half-angel, half demon brothers, Jesse and Nigel, as the old gods return to rule mankind and the city of Halifax becomes ground zero for an ancient war. Out of their element, the two dysfunctional brothers travel across the world and the divine realms in search of the one orchestrating these events. Along the way, they’ll confront their past, befriend old enemies, and battle some of mythology’s heaviest hitters.
This is second of a trilogy, and the third book will be released by summer’s end. Please, feel free to download, leave a review, and even go back and buy the first book if you missed it (these eBooks are literally the closest I have to a Patreon fund).
Thanks again for waiting. Third book coming really soon.
Almost a year ago, I decided to branch out to Unity3D for all my gamedev needs. What was meant to be a two-month experiment took about 6+ months to create a fully-voiced, three-room adventure game starring an Old Timey Detective in Old York City. And now the game’s first release is ready to go!
Play the game over here, for PC, Mac, and Linux!
Because this is the game’s first build and I don’t know what I’m doing in Unity, you may run into a bug or some concerns. I encourage you to leave a comment providing technical feedback on how I may improve future releases. I also want to thank you in advance for putting up with my horrible Boston and German accents. Thanks, and enjoy the game!
A group of us teamed up to make a game for 2015’s AdventureJam. It’s a comedy about a girl retracing her steps through a series of bizarre fantasy worlds in search of a few things she dropped. The development team consists of myself (as lead animator and background artist) with fellow adventurers and developers including Jess Morrisette, Gareth Millward, and Troels Pleimert (concept and design), Natalie Juhasz (art), and SQInc co-developers, Akril (programming, art) and Frederik Olsen (music).
It’s free-to-play, so come check it out at GameJolt and leave a review! Hopefully, we can do a special edition soon…
“Ancients’ Royale” follows the story of two brothers running a bar in Halifax, and what happens when their past catches up to them. Their past being, of course, a nine thousand year-old demon sorceress and her angry band of chaos demons. Buildings will collapse, things will explode, bunnies will happen, you might find a spelling error or two – it’s fun and games for the whole family!
I’m already writing the sequel, so hop on over to Amazon and grab your copy for your Kindle device or app. It’s cheap enough. Or if you’re waiting for the movie to come out, go tell all your friends to go buy it so some Hollywood types will get the hint. Or if you’ve simply just been wanting to give me money for anything I’ve ever made, just buy this instead and we’ll call it even. And if you like it, leave a review! And if you don’t like it, at least I have your money!
I’ll updating again on this in the coming months when it hits different platforms, but for now, thanks to everyone who made this book possible! Sequel in the works.
