What game do I currently most want to see finished and published so I can buy (and play) it?

The Shab-al-Hiri Roach by Jason Morningstar

To quote from Jason’s current version of what will be the back cover copy:

The Shab-al-Hiri Roach is a dark comedy of manners, lampooning academia and asking players to answer a difficult question – are you willing to swallow a soul-eating telepathic insect bent on destroying human civilization?


Even if it will get you tenure?

Yes, it’s yet another post about Dogs.

Vincent has a post up on anyway where he both lays out the details of the upgrade offer for current DitV owners and explains exactly what’s changed since the first edition.

Dogs in the Vineyard, Illustrated Edition – Upgrade Deal

Having seen the new version, I’m likely to end up getting one despite the small number of rules changes. It really does look good.
