Flash will soon be dead. Future Proof Games, and the game community in general, owes an enormous debt to the Flash development zeitgeist of roughly 2004-2014. My (Gregory's) Flash games have led to two different FPG releases: Exploit: Zero Day and "The Majesty of Colors" Remastered. However, most browsers' ...

We like our tabletop roleplaying system Rosette Diceless enough that we've had a home game running every other week since August 2016, two years before the game released. At first it served as a valuable playtesting resource, but we've kept it going. We've incorporated other systems, switched our general playstyle, ...

In writing for Exploit: Zero Day, we need to have characters using hacking techniques that aren't too far off what we think is possible. Thing is, neither of us are (or have ever been) hackers.
I (Melissa), however, have some specific sources I use to seed ideas for tactics characters might use: cybersecurity news.
It sounds boring, like reading dry academic papers of new tweaks on cryptographic techniques. Or ho-hum, like yet another hospital attacked with ransomware.
