Donation Rewards

Beginning now, anyone who donates $5.00 to Darkicon.com will get a special thank-you gift.

I will write one story every month that I will give out as a gift for people who help support this site. The story will change every month, so if you donate $5.00 this month, you get a story… and if you donate another $5.00 next month, you get a different story. Keep in mind that you are not buying the stories, you are receiving them as a thank you gift for donating.

What’s Coming in 2008

What’s Already Happened:

A few months ago I decided to get off my ass and start writing again. I also decided that since writing takes so much time and energy, It would really be nice if I could pay a few bills with it. And if I couldn’t, then there’s other things I could do with that time and energy that COULD pay a few bills.

Much of what happened after that point has been preliminary and warm-up work. I’ve redesigned the site, ditching the CMS and converting all the old stories to a much simpler format. I’ve restored a few old stories that, for a variety of reasons, haven’t been seen on the site for a while. I’ve started this blog to keep people informed about what the hell is going on. And, most importantly, I’ve started writing again. No, not as much or as regularly as I would like, but it’s a start.

I haven’t figured out how a severed head can scream, either. But there it is…

Roller Coaster Tycoon Carnage

Misanthropy + Video Game Simulations = Roller Coaster Tycoon Carnage.

The video pretty much explains it all, although the music is extremely annoying.

I’ve never played Roller Coaster Tycoon… but if I had, I would SO do this.
