The Beggar Coverage

I am humbled by the positive response to The Beggar, which was released this past week. It's great to see that players and reviewers alike are discussing the themes, and sharing their experiences playing. Here are a few of my favorite write-ups. I highly recommend checking out the comment sections of each as well:

I'd also like to take a moment to thank a few people who gave me critical inspiration and feedback while developing The Beggar. Thank you to Daniel Cook, J Epps, Jason Rohrer, Brandon Furtwangler, Brian Murphy, and my lovely wife/seagull artist, Kate :). I don't know if I could have pushed through and finished without your support.
