In case you haven’t noticed by now (what with all the Chrono Trigger MARVEL stuff coming out), I’ve taken a REAL fondness to desktop publishing. Now mind you, I’m using Scribus, GiMP and InkScape instead of a proper Adobe suite (that crap is bloody expensive) but I think it’s turning out rather well. The production of more ‘pick-up-and-use’ gaming material has been a primary goal for ThoughtCrime since its launch. I hope training up some basic layout skills will move us further along towards that goal.
Anyway, these little two-page projects have given me the confidence to try something a bit more substantial. I’ve had a TechNoir Transmission sitting around my hard drive for several months now, just waiting for Jeremy Keller to break loose from the myriad of other projects he works on (MARVEL, FateCore, MechNoir, HexNoir, etc) to take a look at my idea. With his blessing and encouragement, I went ahead and tried to write, format and lay the whole thing out myself.
The job was a bit bigger than I expected though admittedly I’m still pretty new to Scribus at the same time, so factor that in. It took me probably a month to put together, but..
No. I’ll let you judge my level of success for yourselves. With no further ado, the latest offering from ThoughtCrime Games….
