This is a couple weeks old now, but I just realized I failed to mention it at the time. Marc Leblanc (Defense of the Oasis) was a guest recently on Richard Garfield’s podcast, “Games With Garfield.” Interesting stuff! I hadn’t even got the memo before that Garfield was podcasting, so there’s something I have to check out.
Oasis is a crackerjack little game by my friends at Mind Control Software. The original version took home an Independent Games Festival grand prize a few years back, and I always thought it deserved wider attention. Hopefully, an all-new iPad version of the game, titled Defense of the Oasis to avoid search confusion with the English rock band, will help with that.
Full disclosure: I have a scenario design credit in the game, for helping to brainstorm the “Plagues of Egypt” campaign.
