We will be doing some updates on our webpage. This will lead to some 404 pages (page can’t be found) during this time when using some of our links. The update will involve our permalinks (our forums in particular). It will take us about a month to sort things out. This will take effect in December.
So we added some wildlife to the C&D universe in Better Worlds. Problem is that almost everything in this game wants to kill, maim or otherwise do horrible things to you. This fella from the Bureau of Interstellar Exploration didn’t know enough to tread lightly: The giant burrowing centipede hunt by vibrations. Oh, they have a tendency to eat you while you’re still alive. Johan Fredriksson did a terrific job of illustrating this nasty critter in action!
It feels great to know that Cold & Dark tug at the gaming strings of players. We are very happy to see that people seem to like the book. We just loved what John O’Neill over at Black Gate had to say. And we are working hard on Better Worlds, trying to bring you themes, concepts and star systems to explore.
After sending the print files back and forth we finally managed to get them approved! So now the color version can be ordered from our publisher’s website and we couldn’t be happier. Next step will be to get the B&W version into the stores as soon as it’s in print. We have had some printing issues but they seem to be clearing up. Sorry for the delay.
Also, some two weeks ago I managed to finish the main text for Better Worlds. I’m going to go over it and then send it for proofing and Johan is hard at work with the illustrations. We have no ETA on this book yet but as soon as we do we’ll holler.
Our main computer has been (and still is) on the fritz so things have been a bit slow but there are a lot of projects going on behind the scenes, some not really game related, that we will be announcing further down the line.
Hope you’ll enjoy your full colored hardcopy : )
While I’m still working on Better Worlds and waiting for the color copy (some problems with the print file) I thought I might put together a little freebee. So here is the AI Screen I’ve been designing. I’ll uploaded it here and on some web stores as a free download in a while (still tweaking it). It will be available in screen mode as seen here and as well as in US letter for easy printout. I have no idea if we’ll be able to actually get the screen printed and available as a physical copy, but if we do we’ll give you a heads up.
Here is an announcement from our publisher. One that we are more than happy to share with all of you

Finally we’ve gotten some release info and the news is awesome! I’ll simply quote our publishers Facebook update.
“We’re going to be making two editions available. A general release softcover and a limited Hardcover full colour version which will be available direct from us on our webstore, at conventions and also hopefully through some selected retailers. Both versions should be available to pre-order within the next few days.”
