So finally, the text and the art and the game engine and the music and the sound effects and the voice-over are all assembled, the beta testing has been done, and the narrative game is finished and ready to launch.
Here is the credit page.
I'm sure there will be news in the near future from the publisher about getting hold of your copy, and about the publication, etc, but for now I just…

Uncharacteristic activity ripples through our reptilian project.
Crump is toiling demented down the conspiracy mines, quarrying nuggets of pure QAnon to smelt into our theorems. (He's updating the pages in the game which form the private notebooks of our deranged rock lord, Dave Mansion)
Tom has almost finished hanging all Pete's art off the game engine and is now working on a surprise for those…
Have You Remained Vigilant?
Tuesday, 11 May 2021
It has been a while. Some whiles, even.
Many of you will have forgotten that you even signed up for this cockamamie project. Others will have been silently resenting our lack of delivery, whilst growing ulcers.
Sorry about the ulcers. They will pop eventually, flooding your intestines with toxins.
The truth (or rather a lie I am currently typing) is it that we have been kidnapped (again)…
Development Introduction by Tom
Thursday, 27 July 2017
Hello lizard friends.
Just a quick update to introduce myself and give a brief look into the work I’m doing on Reptile Resistance. I’m Tom, I’m a narrative games designer, and I’m doing the development work on the project; essentially taking Craig, Mark and Pete’s work and mashing it all together to turn it into something you can play on a mobile device.
As a narrative designer I’m used to messing…

On average us plebs in the UK are filmed by CCTV 70 times per day. We are the most watched society in history, and with just 1% of the world’s population we have one fifth of the world’s cameras. According to Tony Porter, the UK’s Surveillance Camera Commissioner, a local authority in the midlands got rid of a quarter of a million ‘useless and ineffective’ cameras last year, but there are still six…
Nine Weeks To Go
Thursday, 5 March 2015
Nine weeks to go until the election and it has been pointed out that I'm obsessing about Farage. Quite why it's an issue to be concerned about a populist right-wing demagogue in the run up to an election is beyond me, but nonetheless I have taken these comments to heart and this week will not write a word about him. Instead, this:
PS: Art is the handiwork of…
The Horror, The Horror
Thursday, 26 February 2015
Ten weeks today until the general election and we are continuing the theme of sticking the boot into Farage by making-up weird people and then pretending to interview them. This week, cult Dutch horror director Wanda van-Hasselhoff explains why Nigel, and Ukip politicians in general, have a second career just waiting for them should their political lives not work out:
'For sure I would sign Nigel…
The lack of opposition, and how it reflects on all of us.
Monday, 16 February 2015
I think most sane people realise that this government is composed entirely of lizard scum - and as such would like to see every one of the current cabinet die in a fire – so naturally you’d expect there to be a huge swell of positive opinion for whoever was likely to come along and oust them.
But just look at Labour. Every one of their front bench are mindwarped… Do they even know who they are…
The Special Underwater Train
Friday, 13 February 2015
Twelve weeks to go before the election and we're dropping all pretense of following the news. Instead here's a vituperative hatchet job on Farage's attitude to the EU, including long quotes from the ghost of a fictional English soldier.
For Nigel the channel tunnel may be the devil's umbilical cord, exposing once-impregnable Blighty to foreign licentiousness, a chink in Albion's armour allowing…
Thursday, 5 February 2015
Thirteen weeks until the UK's general election and it's been pointed out that our weekly election blogs have started to concentrate too much on things like politics at the expense of leaving room for jokes about massive devious lizard from the constellation Draco.
It's clear why that is. The moon has been moving conspicuously closer to earth over the last few weeks, meaning its reality-controlling…
Weaponise That by C M Taylor
Friday, 30 January 2015
Fourteen weeks until May's general election and the brouhaha at Prime Minister's question time in the House of Commons Wednesday revolved around Cameron pressing opposition leader Ed Miliband to confirm or deny if he had said he intended to 'weaponise the NHS' during the election campaign.
But Miliband obfuscated and squirmed and neither confirmed nor denied he had used the W word. Quite why the…
Chilcot... and what it reveals about who's still running the show.
Friday, 23 January 2015
If we weren’t all so desensitised to a political class working together this kind of thing would make us all revolt. But we are so it will probably just make you shrug.
At the same time as it was announced that the result of the 6 year long enquiry into the Iraq war, the Chilcot Report, still won’t be published before the election, it was also revealed that 5 years negotiation between those about…
Blowing Smoke by C M Taylor
Friday, 23 January 2015
Fifteen weeks until the election and in what might be one of the last covert moves before the parties stop pretending they're not campaigning, Cameron got stuck into opponents with a sneaky piece of innocent-faced chicanery, aimed at both putting clear water between himself and Ukip, and zapping Labour on an increasingly important issue.
Health Minister Jane Ellison announced Wednesday night that…
The Purple Revolution by C M Taylor
Thursday, 15 January 2015
My pick of the election news this week is the announcement that Nigel Farage - the leader of the campaign to bring back the 1970s - has signed a deal to publish a book entitled The Purple Revolution: They Year That Changed Everything. The book, Farage's entirely justified second memoir, after 2011's Flying Free, will handily be released just before the UK's May general election, and take us, '...behind…
The Election TV debate row.
Thursday, 15 January 2015
This week's big election news came when D-Cam pretended that he wasn't prepared to get involved in a series of live TV debates unless the Greens are asked along to annoy Labour, in the same way that UKIP are going to annoy him.
His concern is that Farage is going to make the the tories seem relatively sane, and this isn't going to appeal to the masses who've become trapped in a Stockholm Syndrome…
Reptile Resistance Election Campaign
Thursday, 15 January 2015
Yes we have been quiet. And there is a reason. We were hibernating over the festive period, restoring our lizard hunting powers to be ready for the coming challenge. By which of course I mean the general election. May 7th unless things change. 16 weeks away.
We are going to be running our own general election campaign to get Reptile Resistance funded. Crump and I will be writing a blog…
Questions Vital to Humanity
Friday, 19 December 2014
You may have noticed we've gone a bit quiet. Well, we were marooned in a quantum dungeon beneath Goldman Sachs for a while, but we got out. Most of us anyway. Also, it's Xmas which is not a lizard hunter's super besso time of year. So we'll be back with full anti-reptile force in The One Five. Yes, I did just call 2015 that.
But in the meantime, as the year comes to an end, important…
Sunday, 7 December 2014
News just in that the disguises of our lizard enemies are becoming more sophisticated.
Also, me Mum and Dad have just pledged on here, so stop dicking about and let's pretend this is important work we're doing.
Good luck for the week.
