Hello from Boston + a preview of a new project

Hello from sunny-and-finally-cool Boston! I’m here for the Festival of Indie Games going on at MIT today, as well as some general tourism (with an inevitable Assassin’s Creed III twist). Like last time, I will be updating my Instagram with photos. Unlike last time, I will be posting about my experience at Push To Smart, a new project I’ve been working on with Jaylee (formerly of the best j-pop podcast around, Gaijin Kanpai). I’ll post more specifics about the project closer to the show’s launch. For now, check out Push to Smart on Tumblr and Twitter.
