AVENT2019 #6 – Cet Instant Précis


I was surprised one morning to read an email from Mattheiu who created something for more people to enjoy:
I made a game this year inspired by your superb A Single Moment.
Game last 30 to 45 minutes and is playable on smartphone.
Now it's only available in french, but you may translate it easily if you use Chrome
https://www.forthedrama.com/games/cetinstant
A presentation of my game
https://www.cestpasdujdr.fr/avent2019-6-cet-instant-precis/

While the site is in French, thankfully Google Chrome translated it enough for me to grasp that A Single Moment now has another incarnation, and that of being a card/smartphone game that is "Descended from the Queen" based on the SRD published by Evil hat Publications and Alex Roberts.

It warms my heart to know that work I have created continue to inspire others to make stuff as well. And all in all, I am just thankful that people still appreciate the small contributions I have made. Thank you for letting me know, Mattheiu and I do home more people try out your version of the game as well!

Make more moments!

Games of Horror and Mystery: Mantle Magazine


Thank you to Titus Villanueva and MANTLE for having me in their article entitled, Games of Horror and Mystery.  Titus interviewed me when he was working on the article to talk about horror and role-playing games.

Even more awesome was the feedback we heard that there were people who never played table top role-playing games before who now are excited to try gaming after reading the article - now that they know there were other kinds of games out there such as horror games.

Here's a quick excerpt from his article:


In the great scheme of things, we are but specks of dust floating through the cosmos. In a horror game, we play those specks of dust and understand what that means. In the face of that truth, we realize that struggling against that meaninglessness, giving ourselves up for more important things, is truly what makes existence less futile. And that’s what makes horror RPGs so appealing.

Again, thank you so much, Titus and MANTLE!

At the Techlife Summit 2019





Was given the opportunity to share more of my knowledge at the TechLife Summit last November 15, 2019. Talked about "Get In the Game!" which opened people's eyes on how gamification has been part of their everyday experience more than they realize.

Thank you for having me!

Thank you, GoshDarnGeeky for featuring Speak to Me....



Thank you Goshdarngeek.com for featuring my game, "Speak to me. The voices are far too loud." The game is quite a personal important one for me and it means a lot that you're helping it reach a wider audience.

From the article:
Embracing hopeSpeak to me. The voices are far too loud.’s message is particularly relevant in today’s world.
“Both in the net and the real world, there has been a rising tide of dominating behavior being imposed on others simply for being different, or disliked,” said Abad. “And given my passion towards gaming, I felt creating a game which helped bring some thoughts into communication was in its own way an important stand to take.”
The complex issues Speak to me. The voices are far too loud. touches on take the form of the “secrets” and the “truth” explored in each play session. Abad incorporated such issues in the game design due to the “capacity of role-playing games to be avenues of exploration and introspection.”

Thank you for the fantastic days, ESGS 2019


























































Still recovering from four days of Electronic Sports and Gaming Summit (one for Business, and three for the public). Thank you so much for making these last few days so special. Tremendously grateful for the opportunity to reach out to the public once more and offer them my new released game, Cat's Dream. Ran so many demo games for my little solitaire game, including sessions for people who never even played an RPG in the past.

First of all, I want to thank Rocky, my partner and my heart, who was such an amazing trooper and made sure I stayed hydrated and had time to eat and use the bathroom. I love you so much.

Then, I want to thank Gwen, Flip, and Francis, who are the people who make Indie Fiesta happen every single year. Your dedication to helping others have a chance to showcase their work and feel welcome is simply priceless and empowering beyond belief. Thank you so much.

Then, I want to thank Urim for checking on me and keeping me company for some of the days as well. And I envy all the awesome swag you got at the event.
