Hello lovely friends! This week has been pretty damn surreal cause it’s been such a wild week of good news in Cyphervania. So here in one bundle (HA!) is all that’s happened this week that I have spread around on various social sites.
Adult Swim shoutout!
A couple friends captured that I got shouted out as a pioneer in gaming in this Adult Swim bump during Bob’s Burgers. Clip of the bump here, captured by Diana Moon. https://vimeo.com/254806948

The awesome folks over at Machinima noted that games have a diversity problem and gave us a lil’ plug for the work we do!

Pleased to announce I’m now a Humble Bundle Partner! I’ve updated my channel to reflect this, and added a !humble command. If Twitch isn’t your thing, here’s my link. https://www.humblebundle.com/?partner=cypheroftyr
Very pleased that we’re launching a POC led tabletop show on the I Need Diverse Games twitch page, and that Quinn Murphy & Chris Chinn are leading as GM’s. Check out the Reclaimers Sunday 6pm Pacific/8pm Central/9pm Eastern at twitch.tv/indg
This will be a weekly show, with the first part being gameplay, episodes will feature an all POC cast; a small break then followed up by GM talk by our hosts! Our first game will be a 4 episode run of Tenra Bansho Zero, then moving on to Five Fires, and other games as we move through our hosts catalog.
Full info and announcement at the INDG site.
