Get your thesis published in OUTER SPACE
PhD Comics is taking education with the ARKYD to a new and wholly unexpected level. Jorge Cham at PhD Comics is showing his support by offering one lucky grad student a chance to have her thesis published...in OUTER SPACE. We love PhD Comics from our grad student days and they love ARKYD! Check out and share the full post from Facebook here.
Watch Lord British geek out on ARKYD and get your Planetary Annihilation on.
We had an awesome time hanging out with two of our favorite gamers, Jon Mavor and Lord British. Pumped to see the ARKYD Reconn Orbiter prospect planets under fire and defended by our Planetary Commander avatar. Epic battles await in Planetary Annihilation. All pledges $99 and up now receive a copy of Planetary Annihilation during its full release later this year, along with a special "Planetary Commander" avatar. Thank you Jon.
