I'm Rick Donnelly, game designer. I helped make Dungeons & Dragons, Command & Conquer, Lord of the Rings, and Star Wars games. I'm launching Airship Asunder on Steam! AMA!
EDIT: I'd better stop, many questions are repeating now and I'm about done after 11 hours! Save me, Matt Damon!
Thanks for the good time and great questions, everyone!

I'm here to rampart about my new game Airship Asunder, a steampunk airship colonization adventure, on Steam this Thursday July 21st!
Curious about games, game development, or the game industry? I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Thinking of making an indie game yourself? I made a client/server moddable engine in Gamemaker. Ask me the questions, bridgekeeper! I'm not afraid!
