Everything is Awesome Episode 111 – Quantum Quest, Part 1

Sometimes co-host, Mike DeAngelo, has designed a card game—Quantum Quest! And we played it LIVE on Kickstarter… which we nabbed the audio from to present to you!


Michael DeAngelo has more ambition than he knows what to do with.  When he was seven or eight years old, he determined right then and there that he wanted to be a “software engineer.” That was his pretentious way of saying that he wanted to make videogames. He always created worlds in his head or on paper.  Michael went through school with massive pads of graph paper and made labyrinths for RPGs that never saw the light of day.  He created sprawling game worlds that never really took off because he instantly gravitated to the next thing.

It never occurred to him that writing was something that he could ever be good at.  Even if you’re one of the people who think that last statement might be true, the Tellest series has grown to be something that he couldn’t leave behind.  Tons of people try their hands at penning a novel.  Sometimes it’s because they want to try and get an unexpected paycheck.  Sometimes it’s because they’re bored.  Ultimately, if and when sales are poor or reviews are worse, there is a part of them that burns up and cracks, blowing away like ashes on the cherry of a cigarette.

For Michael, the Tellest books are almost like people he’s met.  He likes to think of the novels that he’s written as stories that have already been told, but only to him.  He feels it is his duty to tell those tales, even if only a handful of people enjoy reading them.


Dive into a dungeon with a party of adventurers. See if you can outwit and outlast the other players. Remember, there is no escape—you must survive while you can.
