These Bones Gonna Rise Again

A big thank you to all the faithful friends of the princess and mouse! I couldn't have asked for a more enthusiastic response to last month's game tribute artwork. For those who missed out on the limited-edition print release but still wish for a souvenir of past dungeon adventures, I've done a second Prince of Persia-inspired artwork this month, called "Bones." Details are in today's blog post.

30 Years Ago

My published journal The Making of Prince of Persia ends in January 1993 -- four months before the release of Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame. Since this year is POP2's 30th anniversary, I thought it would be a good occasion to continue the story.

Three weeks ago, I started posting 30-years-ago-this-week journal entries on social media. Next month, I'll add them to the Library page as a proper ongoing feature.

This week in February 1993, I was building the last POP2 levels, eager to wrap it up so I could devote my full attention to my next project -- "train game."

A Prisoner Escapes

I'm excited to make a special announcement especially for French readers. Book Two of Monte Cristo, my new graphic-novel trilogy with the wonderful Italian illustrator Mario Alberti, will be in bookstores March 22. You can read about it here.
J'ai le grand plaisir de faire une annonce spécialement pour les lecteurs francophones. Le deuxième tome de Monte-Cristo, ma nouvelle trilogie de bande dessinée avec le formidable illustrateur Mario Alberti, sortira en librairie le 22 mars.
Il s'agit d'une histoire d'amour contrarié, d'emprisonnement injuste et d'évasion audacieuse - une adaptation moderne du classique d'Alexandre Dumas transposé dans l'Amérique d'après-11 septembre. 

Monte Cristo T2 : L'île sortira aux Editions Glénat le 22 mars. Vous pouvez le découvrir et télécharger un échantillon gratuit en PDF et le précommander en ligne ici.

News feed

I recently installed a free, open-source RSS reader, and wonder why I ever stopped? Not just a relic of the pre-AI, ad-driven-algorithm days, RSS is still the best way to follow news that the internet has invented yet. For those interested, now once again has an RSS feed (bilingual English/French).

Next month's newsletter will jump thirty, then twenty years into the past, with new announcements of special interest to retro-Prince of Persia fans. See you soon on March 21!

Meanwhile, I made this sketch a week ago, in Paris.
If you know someone who may also enjoy this newsletter, please feel free to forward it to them. Thanks!
