I’ve gone through the incredible journey of pregnancy three times. The panicky doubts that see-saw with giddy mania, the sleepless nights, the aches, pains and miserable setbacks that blindside you. The waiting that seems at once endless and yet over in a flash. And best of all, that magical way in which your brain obliterates all the bad stuff once that baby arrives.
But I have to say the experience of spinning the Time Tribe from the scattered filaments of my original vision into something that people will soon actually be able to play, to enjoy, maybe even to learn from, has been nothing less than mind-blowing. Like some pit bull that clamped down and refused to let go until I handed over a beta key, the ongoing development of this thing has obsessed, tortured, and - in precious glorious moments - fulfilled me more than any other project. Ever.
So, I hope you’ll tune in here as we share the backstory of the making of the Time Tribe. It’s been a crazy process of self-education and discovery in the Dark Arts of Digital Storytelling, made possible by a lot of help from amazing, generous friends and colleagues in the gaming, transmedia, and edtech communities. And we’ve only just begun!
