The Long Trail Home

The Long Trail Home

Here we are in 2021. Ten years. A decade. The original FAR WEST Kickstarter was in 2011. Ten years is a long goddamn time to ask people to wait, I know. It’s been the hardest decade of my life. Professional and personal challenges, like I’d never experienced before. Physical and mental heath crises requiring damn near all of my focus and attention. The work on FAR WEST definitely suffered. You know it. I know it. Honestly, I’m all out of

Far West Update

Far West Update

I’ve been quiet recently, I know. First things first:  Far West is NOT dead. I only have one chapter remaining to assemble from the earlier drafts.

Well, a few months ago, my family convinced me to finally seek

Long time, I know. This update appeared on Kickstarter, and on my personal blog — but now that I’m looking to get things on this site back on a regular schedule, I realized that it should be here as well. I had promised myself that I wouldn’t be doing an update until I had a major delivery ready… that the incremental “I’m still working” updates didn’t tell anybody anything new – and wouldn’t convince folks who don’t believe that’s the

Far West Inspirography: The Magnificent Seven

Fair weather and plentiful streams, wanderers. As we get closer to the release, we’re shaking the dust of this site, with the intention of getting back to regular content again. Today’s piece is about the new version of one of the most Far Western movies out there, The Magnificent Seven. For the (surely) few of you who don’t already know, the original Magnificent Seven was a 1960 Western remake of the 1954 Akira Kurosawa film, The Seven Samurai — the

Far West Inspirography: The Arti

It’s been far too long since the last post on this site, but now, as we’re finally getting ready for the release of the FAR WEST Adventure Game, we’re returning to regular content on the website. First up, a nifty bit of Inspirography! Check out this trailer for THE ARTI: THE ADVENTURE BEGINS — a CG plus Puppets wuxia fantasy that was released for the Lunar New Year in Taiwan.
