A Place to Publicly Rant

The Corvid Games website is now live, and, consequently, the blog is now live as well. It took some time to get from website idea to website, and, in the interim, the idea of a blog was tossed around. The possibility of a place to publicly rant was an interesting one.

The reality of this place, however, is slightly confounding. I’ve never kept any sort of publicly available documentation of my life or work. At least nothing beyond the occasional, sparse profile for websites I regularly use.

It seems to me that to blog (or at least to blog successfully), one must possess two traits. Firstly, you have to appreciate the sound of your own voice, for that seems to be the entire raison d’être of blogging: to facelessly talk, out loud, to no one in particular. Secondly, you have to believe that other people appreciate the sound of your own voice, for although you are talking to no one in particular, you’re also talking to everyone. Being a writing major and a geek, I possess the former in spades. The latter, however, isn’t something I believe with any significant amount of fervor.

Regardless, this place did become a reality, and so I will, as often as I can, try and put a few letters to the page.

As a disclaimer I’d like to point out that this is not a place for official Corvid Games information. I will try to use this space to keep you up to date on what projects we are currently tackling, to give you insight into the design and publishing process of our games, and to let you have a closer look at the people involved in those processes. However, I may also use this space to share how much I love Mrs. Renfro’s Habanero Salsa, to explain how the internet ruined video games, or to ask anyone if they know why people keep putting Liv Tyler in movies. You know the drill: the opinions expressed here are those of the individual authors and do not represent the views of Corvid Games.

That sentence may need to be moved to the top of the page instead of eventually buried here in the first post.
