Everything Louder Than Everything Else

Much has been happening here behind the scenes, even though it doesn't look like it. But like a duck swimming like mad just below the surface, I too have only maintained a thin veneer of calm.

First off, Hero Helper. Updates have been brisk, if not quite as timely as I would like. Cryptozoic's release schedule for new cards is absolutely breakneck and I've been attempting to keep up as best I can. All I can say is, thank god for sites that sell individual cards, cause other I'd be up to my knees in WoW cards by now and I don't even play that much! As for stats, I can tell you that update numbers have been higher than I would have thought, which to me says people aren't immediately deleting the app. I'm going to PAX East in April and it will absolutely make my year if I see anyone using the app "in the wild".

I'm also hoping to have not one, but two apps ready by the time PAX rolls around. The first is called Randominion and if you can't figure out what it does by the name, it's probably not something you'd be interested in. If you can though, I think you'll like it. It'll do lots of cool stuff like keep whitelists and blacklists so can include or banish any cards you choose. And in addition to creating random games for you it'll let you make and save specific ones so you have everything you need at your fingertips.

The second app is gonna be a stretch to be done in time, so I don't want to say too much about it. But apparently I'm in the business of making apps that help you play analog games, and the third app will be no exception.

So lots of things are happening, and all of them are competing for my undivided attention, but you're going to see some new stuff coming out real soon. I'm excited.
