I am kind of embarassed I've been gone so long and my last post was um last year around this time. I think the root of the matter is I'm in this vagabond stage of my life/career, I'm heavily into like the design side of the creative business but my mind is always active and thinking of stuff, game ideas what have you, but my time is so slim these days that the outlet for those is usually little gifs or an occasional small game. In past years, I'd consider that a disappointment, and im sure to some of my fans it definitely is. But I think its par for where I'm at right now.
That said, I am working on a game currently with the Pesto Force guy, and a few other people. Kind of happy with how its going and how quickly its coming together. Its also a rare game where I'm publicly open about the WIP stuff, i'm usually kind of secretive, not because i think someone might 'steal' it, but because im not really comfortable showing unpolished ideas. But that game is actually just one big unapoligetic unpolished idea. Anyway, it should be done soonish. It may be unbalanced and kind of rough but thats okay i think.
As inactive as I've been, i do still follow the art scene, i quietly have the endless artist streams in the corner of my window as i work, and its kind of nice to see something come out of nothing and say hey i was there when it was just a sketch. (Shadman's stuff comes to mind)
I'd like to continue doing that, I'm trying to find a 'regularly' scheduled art stream i can incorporate into my schedule, like knowing someone always is doing streams every tuesday or whatever. I'm a creature of habit and it'd be nice to follow streams that are consistent. I wish newgrounds had like a blinking light or something next to a screename to denote they are streaming. Kind of how like the header of the site has this little streaming blurb when the office is streaming something. Something along those lines but on the user level would be cool, if doable.
so YEA. Have a good year.
