Marketforce! is a game is about fighting emails, solving a mystery, and getting to the fourth floor. I made it as a parting gift for my colleagues when I left a B2B conference company called “Marketforce”. Now it’s available to download!
It features an original score by Mungo Tatton-Brown.

Good afternoon my friends.
In popular culture, romance is generally portrayed as a struggle and a triumph over adversity. Character A wants character B but can’t have them because x stands in their way. The story is about A’s battle and ultimate victory over x. When A wins we cry and smile and laugh and feel happy for them.
This basic story idea is appealing for a number of reasons that I will not go into here. It is also sometimes truthful – sometimes one must overcome obstacles to make a connection.
But while struggles within relationships can be real, our model of romance does not need to be based on struggle. Romance is not the same as drama. Romantic love is often calm. It does not need to constantly be moving forward. It involves listening, making time, understanding, and supporting another.
I worry that sometimes we build up a notion that love is a quest, like slaying a dragon, and this can lead to a number of failings, such as:
Rushing one’s self
Rushing someone else
Seeking out conflict
Sticking it out unnecessarily in uncomfortable circumstances
Encouraging others to stick it out in uncomfortable circumstances
When such forcefulness doesn’t help anyone.
Instead, we should be at peace, and follow what feels pleasant. Or something. I haven’t worked that bit out.
Jaguar opens in busy London traffic.
Hi folks! I hope you like the new set-up! I thought you might be interested in checking out the first ever game I made, back in a two week rush in October 2015. It’s called Jaguar and it’s an interactive short story. Before you download, I want you to know that it is far from perfect and I am going to improve it. It’s best to set aside forty minutes and play it from start to finish all in one go.
Right. That’s enough of me! Play the game here. Download and it will run in your browser. Enjoy!
If you have any thoughts on the game, let me know!
