On contacting the brilliantly talented team of individuals who’ve helped to make Phasmid’s first four titles so exquisite, I discovered that none of them will work with me now. This is because my worldview differs from theirs and appears to be a knock-on effect from HTP’s cancellation of WEED. Having a minority opinion isn’t easy […]Read More Phasmid – a new phase
