It's August and blame "Mia".  

Some of you know that my son is an award winning, independent game developer. He just released his first commercial video game, Miracle Mia and a few months ago he asked me to help with finalizing the game dialogue and putting together a press kit and managing his social media.  It has been a fun, weird, and eye opening experience.

Miracle Mia is a story driven, anime, action platformer video game with a tennis-based combat system. You can play it with keyboard or game controller.

For those of you familiar with Steam, the video game digital distribution platform, Miracle Mia is available on Steam for PC.

For those who don't want to bother with additional downloads and signups, one can buy the game or download the demo on GameJolt, a hosting service for video games.  It's also available on itch.io, another site that hosts indie video games and doesn't require an additional download.

(Note: In the last two instances (GameJolt and Itch.io), we are still waiting on our digital certificate, so you get a scary Red Screen of Warning.  Trust me, it isn't malware.)

There is also an original soundtrack put together by a talented synth-wave musician - Ashley Lynn Watts.  You can hear the soundtrack on Spotify or, if you are a keen synthwave connoisseur, you can buy the album on Bandcamp.

A voice over artist, Corinne Sudberg, provides the voices for all the characters.  And, two sound designers were brought in to do the sound effects - Diwa de Leon and Emmanuel Lagumbay.

Interesting happenings:

Upon launch, we were inundated with review code requests. Usually it was, "We need three review codes for me and my buddies," whereupon we learned of the second hand market for game codes.  We were not happy, but it is still visibility.

We were delighted to learn of a core of dedicated fans who not only were looking forward to the games release, but made fan art and give great reviews.  

So, if you've gotten this far, please recommend to your gamer friends Miracle Mia (It's the first result on Google and Bing).

Please like and follow him on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or Tumblr.  And thank you for indulging in a little self promotion.

- Don

Yes, tennis. It's odd because our whole family is absolute rubbish at tennis

Thank you everyone.  I guess I'm most chuffed that he got his Writer and Director credits before me - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt10962022/

Dave,

I saw.  Thanks!  

This foray into Gamer Culture has been interesting.  I've always considered myself a gamer - pong, atari, board games, strategy games - the whole gamut, but this a whole other world.

Yeah - I've watched the kids play them. Made me feel like my parents did when VCRs came out

Wow, that's amazing. Congrats. That's a crazy impressive accomplishment. I'll go on Steam and check it out. Actually, I just looked and I see it there. I'm buying it guaranteed.

Can I also get six hundred review codes for me and my friends?


That rug really tied the room together.

Since I accompany him on conventions where he shows the game, I've been told that I need to be able to acutally play the game in order to more convincily hawk the game. So, I spend 1/2 an hour a night playing games with the controller. It is hard on adult fingers.

Of course you can have review codes because you are, "a connoisseur of Games, [and] are committed to recommending excellent games to everyone, and of course [you] will leave [y]our most sincere feelings. And will  live up to your expectations.  And wish [us] a better sale of [our] game and [our] career will flourish."

(changed tense quote from someone who sold the two review codes on the 3rd party market...)

Actually, Don IV
