Tom: Joyful new 12 months of us! The crew has had a little bit relaxation, performed some little video games, and are typically rising from hibernation able to make content material… and some modifications. You’ll have seen the title of this put up is a little bit totally different than ordinary, as a result of we’re going to attempt swapping out our weekly ‘This Week On’ posts for ‘This Month On’ posts within the first half of 2023.
So, why the change? Largely this comes from me sitting down to put in writing the weekly posts and realising that the format was more and more turning into both ‘we’re posting a video and a podcast’ or ‘we aren’t posting a video however there will likely be a podcast’ for many weeks in 2022. This wasn’t horrible, in fact – however it was a bizarre little job that didn’t really feel all that helpful! Now we would like these posts to be extra substantial, and to offer of us who’re extra of a peek backstage as to what we’re getting as much as, in addition to affording us a little bit extra flexibility in how we strategy issues. Video critiques can get modified, pushed again, shuffled round and completely canned for all method of causes, and we wish to replicate that actuality in our scheduling updates.
Nonetheless! We nonetheless wish to be updating the neighborhood and sharing the ins and outs of being residing human beings engaged on issues – so, to that finish, we’re going to loosely begin the Twitch Channel up once more for some a lot wanted chill and chat time. We’ll in all probability hold these very informal to start with, and be guided by you lot on what you wish to see subsequent! The primary of those will seemingly be subsequent week the place I’ll be taking part in a splash of the brand new Firaxis recreation: Marvel’s Midnight Suns, and I’ll be open for questions and rambling about SU&SD in 2023! We’ll put up a date for that over on the SU&SD Twitter account as soon as I’ve bought issues so as.
So! With that change out the best way, what’s happening in January?
First up, you’ll be able to count on a extremely pretty raft of podcasts. We simply launched our 2023 predictions episode final week, and we’ll observe that up this week with a chat in regards to the first few video games we performed this 12 months – The Wolves, The Seek for Misplaced Species, and Ginkgopolis! After that, we’ve bought just a few extra episodes lined up within the hopper – a CCG Particular speaking about Flesh & Blood and Solforge: Fusion, in addition to a prolonged chat about Stationfall and a few of the video games we’d performed after PAXU. Good instances!
Over in videoville, a pair issues are within the cooker. We’ll quickly have a video on basic household recreation Rummikub, wherein I’ve a whole vital breakdown. Why am I making it? I don’t actually know. On high of that, myself and Quinns are sketching out the borders of a ‘Prime 10 Small Video games’ function, however which may find yourself being a February mission – such is the best way after we’re attempting to function an entire bunch of video games without delay. There’s just a few different scripts which are within the ‘perhaps’ pile for turning into full-fat videofilms – however I feel our January and February will seemingly be a little bit quieter on the video facet of issues while Matt continues to assemble the video studio for new options, and I navigate absolutely the state that’s Brighton’s rental market.
Thanks all! See you subsequent week for a stream, and subsequent month for one more this month on Shut Up & Sit Down!
[oh, and I know this is a little late for ‘This January in Shut Up & Sit Down! We’ll hopefully have these updates much earlier – so we sandwich the month with a ‘This Month On…’ and a Newsletter!]
