Dan Trewin: Parallel Games is a small indie game development studio. We started getting serious about making games back in 2012. Parallel Games was founded with the release of our first game Block Ooo. None of us work full time at our studio, but we love to program games in our spare time. We plan on releasing many more quality games in the future. Please consider supporting us by purchasing our games.

Our current project is Nomad Quest. Nomad Quest is an action & adventure game heavily inspired by the Zelda games of old (primarily The Legend of Zelda and The Legend of Zelda: a Link to the Past). The game stars a user-named wizard protagonist. His goal is to grow in magical power by conquering the dungeons around the realm


For almost an entire year, Eric Johnson and Jodie Arnold have been recording their weekly podcast, Tell Me Something Weird. Between sips of local beers and wines, they tell each other stories of true crime, strange characters, the weird, the unusual, and the paranormal. These co-hosts have a long and interesting history that started as a romance, then shed its skin several times, causing one to ponder deep existential questions about the nature of the universe and face nightmarish Lovecraftian horror. Ultimately it bloomed into Tell Me Something Weird. Ready to get weird with us?
