Hi, everyone. Samuel here. Some of you have undoubtedly noticed that I have recently shut down all of my Hosted Games WIP threads and deactivated all of my demos. You may have also noticed that the same has been done for Nascent Narcissistic Necromancer and Hostile Hostel, which were WIPs written under my pen name, Sarah Stuber.
I debated on whether to make any explanation for this at all, but I figured that my friends, fans, and incredibly helpful beta testers on this forum deserve at least that much. I have been a member of this community for six years now, and it has been a great experience.
However, I know that it is time for me to move on. I’ll still be working on the sequels to The Magician’s Burden, but those will likely be my last HG titles.
Much of the content that I am itching to make is simply a better fit for my other publisher, Tales. As many of you know, I am currently working on preparing Mass Mother Murderer for release with them.
I have also recently warmed up to their freemium business model a great deal. No sales model is perfect, but the fact that my interactive novels will be published through them for free, with optional paid content, means that they could potentially reach hundreds of thousands of people. This is an invaluable asset to me, as I want my stories to reach as many people as possible.
All that said, I will be working hard to finish MMM in the coming months. I also have plans to subsequently pitch Nascent Narcissistic Necromancer, The Enchanter’s Misery, and all of my other WIPs to Tales in due time. I will, of course, still occasionally be present here as a fan of Choice of Games, a Hosted Games author, and as a member of this amazing community.
If you would like to talk about any of my current WIPs, including NNN, TEM, Skeletons Can’t Press Charges, Hostile Hostel, Winter of the Bovine, and The Twisted Village, please do so here for now.
Lastly, I would like to thank Choice of Games for everything that they have done for me. The chance to publish my first story at eighteen years old and to continue to release titles over the years has helped me grow immeasurably, and on more than one occasion the great staff at CoG has put more faith in me than I deserved.
I look forward to hearing your thoughts, everyone.
Also, since people are curious why I used the name Sarah Stuber for some of my WIPs:
