A good year on paper?

Hello 2018.

As you are probably already demonically aware Derrick the Deathfin is out right now on iOS and Android.

There might be a new Derrick title coming your way at some point.

There is also something in the depths of my mind so implausible, so amorphous, so wildly ambitious that it will strain your cranium to its maximum extents to even comprehend its fledgling form.

I might work on that a bit this year as well.

Happy happy year!

Happy New Year Everyone!

As is traditional after the tick of the gregorian clock in to a new year here’s a little post outlining what you can expect from different cloth in this newest of new years!

Hold up. What’s that? It’s March already? Wowzers.

Well, they do say that time flies when you’re having fun. It would appear to be equally true that time flies when the world is in the grip of a maniacal intolerance which seeks to divide us all and aggressively scapegoat minorities.

So, without further ado, here’s what you are rightly entitled to expect from us this year. If you are a Steam user I hereby grant you permission to feel doubly entitled.

1. Drive!Drive!Drive! in a Box!Box!Box!

Drive!Drive!Drive! is a great game. You really should pick it up. It’s the best thing I’ve ever made. Not a difficult accolade perhaps, but an accolade nonetheless. Here it is covered in plastic with a bunch of other fantastic games from the mildly erotic but distinctly mildewy smelling folks at Choice Provisions. That’s coming soon but it’s available on PS4 & Steam right now.



2. Derrick the Deathfin in a Tele-phone!

Derrick for mobile was successfully Kickstarted back in December. Whoop! Ronzo & myself are hard at work at it & much like Ron’s face it’s starting to feel really lovely in my hands now. The game will be out before the Summer. Unless it isn’t. In which case it would be late!



3. Wax: an entirely new music game!

That’s right music game fans who have been vaguely interested in my output since lilt line but bitterly disappointed ever since – your time has come! I received a bit of funding from the wildly appropriately named Horsham District Council to help me build a prototype of this new musical game. It’s tentatively called Wax for very clever reasons that have nothing to do with ears. Here’s a screenshot of how it won’t look or play at all since it’s from a prototype which is a year old now – enjoy!



I do hope you appreciate these excellent things when they arrive, in the meantime please try to love each other a little more tenderly.

Look Who’s Back

In a week that’s proving crushingly triumphant for predators whose first name begins with ‘D’, Derrick the Deathfin is KickStartering his way to mobile courtesy of the amazing work of Ronzo!


Unlike his lettersake in the United States, Derrick is more of a traditional predator of the non-sexual variety, choosing instead to harass paper fish with a view to eating them.


Derrick would also like it to be made known that his creator was born in the US and loves the country very much & both of them hope that together we can all find a new way to address the worlds problems without the need to resort to hatred, sexism, racism and bigotry. Derrick notes with sadness that similar hatefulness has recently increased in his creator’s country of residence, and indeed is rising in most European waters too.


Derrick is reminded of the anger he used to harbour for dolphins as a teenager, blaming them for all the problems he faced as a young orphan shark, when really the roots of his distress were caused by humanoid greed & massive disparities in humanoid wealth. Derrick would like to make clear that those days are behind him now, but there may be a lesson in there for all of us.


Erm, so Derrick for Mobile has launched on KickStarter! Give generously if you feel that way inclined, there are loads of ace rewards too!
