My name is Mike Suchcicki, recently retired after more than 30 years in the newspaper business (half print, half digital) and I’ve recently put out my shingle as what I call a Multimedia Handyman. My portfolio website is at MikeSooch.com.
On the side, my son Joe and I publish “GHOULASH: The Last Game on Earth,” with a home at Ghoulash.com. The game comes in two versions. One is a two-player adventure game played entirely on paper (I created it in 1982 as the world’s smallest role-playing game). The other version is a rip-roaring card game for two to four players. GHOULASH, both the paper game and card game, is set in a world infested with giant, green, deadly monsters called Ghouls. The object is to destroy as many Ghouls as you can.
Forgive the shameless sales pitch, but both versions of the game are available online at our store.
There’s more to GHOULASH than just the games, however. Joe and I have created a mythology around the game, with an exciting cast of characters. In addition to the game itself, I’m working on “GHOULASH: The Last Game on Earth” The Novel. In the adventure, our heroic band of scientists and soldiers search for the secret behind the origin of the Ghouls in hopes of eliminating the threat forever. Sinister forces, however, are determined to stop them at any cost.
We also are in production of a comic book version of the novel, with script by Joe and I and art by Orlando artist Shawn Surface. (That’s his cover for the comic, above right.)
Things are getting exciting!
