Good news: it looks like Choice of Games has managed to sort out all of the problems relating to the Steam release, and now both Guns of Infinity and its immediate predecessor Sabres of Infinity are available for purchase on Steam!

After nearly two years of writing, countless hours of worldbuilding and revision, and a truly astounding amount of narrative creep, Guns of Infinity is finally out for mobile devices and Chrome Webstore (Steam release to follow soon.). Clocking in at 440 000 words, it is the largest work I have ever completed, and certainly the one which I have put the most of my effort and skill into (although that will likely always be true of my most recent work).
The direct sequel to my first IF, Sabres of Infinity, Guns of Infinity continues the story of an aristocratic cavalry officer at war as he rises through the ranks, redeems himself for past disgraces, thrusts himself to new heights of fame, or simply tries to stay alive on the field of battle and off; as he finds himself entangled in the complex intrigues of spies, kings, lords, and foreign powers.
As the main character completes his transition from callow recruit to a battle-hardened senior officer, he is given fresh opportunity to pursue wealth, glory, and even love. Yet new opportunities bring new dangers – not just to his life; but to his reputation, his family, to his very conscience.
Update: Guns of Infinity is now out for the Amazon AppStore as well.
Update2: Guns of Infinity is now out for Chrome Webstore as well.
Over the past few months, I’ve been coming to the realisation that the sort of in-depth world-building I do for works like Sabres of Infinity aren’t particularly financially sustainable. By spending months and months tweaking cultural biases and orders of battle, I’m able to make my stories take place in richer, fuller worlds. Skimping on the process leads occasionally to works which could have ended up being better. However, spending all that time on it also slows down my writing process appreciably, to the point where I’m not really doing paying work at the rate that I’d really want to. Guns of Infinity has proven to be a pretty good example of that: taking the time to build up the political and cultural forces that drive the story have made it a better one, but it has also taken the better part of eighteen months, and releasing one title every year and a half isn’t really anything I can live off of by itself.
So, I’ve decided to fuel my “extracurricular” worldbuilding with a Patreon page. In exchange for the funding provided by generous patrons, I intend to make publish a series of articles on the settings of my two ongoing series (The Infinite Sea of Sabres/Guns of Infinity, and The Concordat of The Hero of Kendrickstone). These articles will deliver in-depth explanations and examinations of the culture, politics, and minutiae of these settings, and will be made publicly available here on this website, in the hopes that you will enjoy reading about the details of my worlds as much as I enjoy creating them.
You can find my Patreon page here.
Secondly, some great news: barring any sort of major emergency, Guns of Infinity will be releasing tomorrow. It bears repeating that due to the way that Choice of Games has to juggle a release on six separate platforms with six different approval processes that this is not guaranteed. However, if nothing horrible happens, then everyone should be able to get their hands on a release copy sometime in the next twenty-four hours.
