The Adventures of Gay Fawkes Part 1: The Naming Process

Naming someone is a huge responsibility. In action-RPGs like Grim Dawn which encourage you to make multiple player characters, deciding what to call them all is by far the biggest challenge… ‘Gin Down’ was my first effort as a toast to the release of the first playable version of Grim Dawn.

Two months after D-Day, the German lines were still holding in Normandy. To achieve the final breakthrough, the First Canadian Army launched Operation ‘Totalize’. The Allies were confident, the Germans, under saturation bombing, were in a desperate position.
