--7:43pm: A short ghost story--

This year I decided to go for the very direct method of telling my Halloween story... Just telling the story! I hope you like it smile.gif


Pass it on to your friends if you enjoy it!

(Sorry for sending this a day late!)


--Mata's other things!--

My webcomic updates twice every week and now has been running for eight years! If you're not reading it regularly then you've got a lot of catching up to do!


I write about games development occasionally too:


I also paint things when I'm not ridiculously busy...



--Fragments of Him - a video game by Mata--

You might remember that last year I collaborated with some other game developers to make a little emotional narrative game called Fragments of Him. We're working on turning this into a full movie-length game at the moment and it will be released in 2015.

You can see the trailer for it here:


And visit the website for it here:


The story is about the final morning of a man that dies in an accident, and how the people left behind find meaning and consolation from the love they shared during his brief life... It's not your usual video game!

We're all very excited about the project. I look forward to sharing more about it next year.


--Follow Mata on Twitter--

I do the tweeting thing. It's mostly about video games, culture, anti-sexism and pro-diversity awareness. It also has some terrible jokes occasionally, but mostly that other stuff:



--Matazone on Facebook--

There's this new-fangled doofer called Facebook. If you happen to be on there, you might want to follow the Matazone group to get updates about comics, paintings, and generally cool stuff:



--End notes--

It's been an odd year. I've travelled to New York, San Francisco, Denmark, Germany, the UK, and across the Netherlands, mostly talking about tolerance and diversity in video games content, development, and culture. I hope to continue to talk about empathy and understanding in the future too, because there are frankly too many arguments about games at the moment, and they really can be a brilliant complement to the other media in our lives.

My work at NHTV University is keeping me very busy, so making Fragments of Him is proving to be a welcome difference of pace. By this time next year I will be able to review the results of the seeds of change that are currently everywhere in my life. As always it seems, I'm living in interesting times.

I have to say, that even though life is ridiculously busy and sometimes rather stressful, I'm genuinely rather happy with things at the moment. There are tough bits, and conflicts occasionally, but it feels like it's worthwhile. Teaching is a great thing to do: I love inspiring people to do awesome stuff!

So, I hope you have a great year, please jump onto the Facebook group and comment on posts - I'd love to hear from you all!

Greetings from the Netherlands!

Have fun!
