One of those projects was Ama’s Lullaby, an adventure RPG with turn-based combat that was in the very early stages of development.

Marooners’ Talk: Episode 017 – “Scandal and Success on the Internet (The Tribute)”

This one’s a couple of days late, but I blame technology, the harsh, cruel mistress that deals us all a slap on the face at one point or another. Due to unavoidable circumstances, we were unable to record on Sunday for a Monday release.
