Around our Web development duties we have found time to work on a number of creative projects on and off. This is an overview of our project list along with their current status activity:

NovoPulp: The Speculative Fiction Anthology

NovoPulp: The Speculative Fiction Anthology (ACTIVE)

Let’s bring back the best of the days of Pulp: Fiction written by and for those who love the genre. Pushing boundaries, asking the questions, demanding the answers, and even providing some.

We’d like to collect, anthologise, and produce one volume a year of the very best Speculative Fiction that G+ can provide. We also want to publish a quarterly edition for serials. All comers are welcome – we want everyone to have the chance to put their ideas before the world, to be the one who saw what the rest of us didn’t – or wouldn’t – and so change the world.

As any writer will tell you, getting paid is the hard part. That part has to change too. At Novo Pulp (and it base community at Google+) we’ve never minded paying for quality SF. Never. Neither have any of the SF lovers we have ever known. In today’s shattered market, it’s every story for itself. It can be impossible to tell which writer, which story, even if you happen to hear of them. We can change that too.

Want to take part? You can join our NovoPulp communities at Google+ and tell us so, or apply to join NovoPulp HQ directly! We need writers and editors, typesetters and artists, and juries of readers!

Bite-sized Blitz: Practical Productivity in Bite-sized Steps (INACTIVE)

“This blog will be about sharing the full range of my productivity experience, as well as trying out new methodologies, ideas and tools for improvement. Where the blog will tie together with my book is the idea behind the name Bite-sized Blitz, which is about dealing with big things in bite-sized chunks.”+Niamh Brown

The Games I Played This Week Blog: Musings on Games and Gaming (INACTIVE)

“Well, I’m pretty much going to do what the domain says I will: talk about the games I played this week. They will not necessarily be the latest releases or the most anticipated titles, and they may not necessarily change every week, but they will be the games I have played. I will try to bring out aspects of game play or interface which have caught my attention while I play and to share any inspirations I might find as well. At the beginning of each month I will be looking at the game design theme for the coming month over at and toward the end of the month I will be spotlighting some of my favourites of the releases which result from it.” +Ted Ewen

Cyrano Against The One Hundred by Hermit Studio Games

Cyrano: Against The One Hundred (INACTIVE)

As this is to be our first released game and we will also be starting off with the learning curve for Unity and PlayMaker Development. So we plan to start with Cyrano ‘The Cube Wars’ and build up the game from a piece of grit, adding layer and layer of functionality and form until we get a polished pearl of a game. The end result that we hope to reach for the game Cyrano: Against The One Hundred is a three dimentional role playing game where you are the sword-wielding soilder and poet Cyrano De Bergerac; fighting against one hundred men that were sent after a fellow poet and friend. When you confront members of the one hundred, the game zooms down into a more tradtional top down Game Board suspended in 3D space, where you can throw daggers and furniture in taverns or go swordfighting in the streets of 17th century France. Win over the crowds as you fight and they may even help you out. Cyrano beat one hundred men in one night – can you?

We also have a puzzle game designed, which we plan to prototype at some point.

The Big Ideas (INACTIVE)

The Hermit Studios: Empowering People to Change The World from Home (INACTIVE)

In starting the studio it was always with a bigger plan in mind: to engage and energise introverts by promoting their own work within an open online studio collective. Here we want to expand into creating a business to employ and promote the efforts of an under-served and under-utilised segment of our society: introverts. One third to one half of the population are introverts, and technology has finally advanced to the point that we can be both introverts and collectively productive.

Project Slow Boat (INACTIVE)

Taking the Long View on Human Colonization of Space: “Bring a asteroid to near orbit, mine it for the minerals and to create living space, put on a bunch of drives and aim for Alpha Proxima. It could take a lifetime just to get out system, but think of all that might be learned while we get up to speed”

… plus the many, many other project ideas that will hopefully get taken out of storage, aired and worked on soon enough 🙂
