In this short triple feature I’d like to talk a bit about my latest work in regards to Middangeard.

Like many people of his privileged upbringing, Mark Zuckerberg has a high verbal IQ. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about his emotional intelligence (or lack thereof), nor his business accumen.
Growing up in an upper middle class household didn’t prepare him for a role that requires reflection and knowing when you’re in the wrong. The Zuckerbergs’ of...

With the advent of V (which I only took a cursory look at. Alas, what I saw I liked very much. It looks and feels like Go on steroids) I’ve recently become interested in writing my own (toy) language. Partly to serve as a learning/teaching aid in language theory (My niece....

In preparation for a larger online presence, I’ve now added initial support for an inline audio player.
For now, you can listen to some soothing Chopin (Nocturne Op. 9 No. 2).

Some brief thoughts on this amazing little device
24 May 2019
This is a quick sneak-peek of the first (there will be many, hopefully. Any Middangeard GUI is, after all, merely a messaging client to the engine) UI for Middangeard.
I haven’t come up with an actual (code-)name for it, yet. As a huge fan of Magnetic...

The first in (most likely) a series of Lua related snippets. How to emulate basic class abstraction in a language that doesn't offer classes by default.

Complementary to my work on Middangeard, I’m also taking the time to dig into other adventure engines. Both contemporary and “retro”, text based and graphical.

It is with great excitement that I’m announcing my newest venture into game design.
Middangeard is a modern Interactive Fiction (AKA Text Adventure) engine written in Go. Reborn out of an idea I had back in 2014 (to write a similar framework in Inform 7. An idea that eventually crumbled under the sheer load...
