The new year, fear, and Patreon
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 4:51 PM

It’s almost the new year. Time for a bit of introspection and a different approach to life.

To not bury the lead here: I’ve started a Patreon for my creative work. Click the new banner on my site, or visit my Patreon page to support me.

Let me go into a bit more about why I’m doing this, and why this has been a hard thing for me to do.

So, a few people including the wonderful Dr. Cat of Origin and Fucadia fame, are doing a “Legends of Gaming” stream later today, starting very soon. It’ll be a “Johnny Carson” style show with many different people coming along to be interviewed, then stick around a bit as others are being interviewed.

Happy Thanksgiving!
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 9:36 PM

I hope everyone out there had a good Thanksgiving. Even if you don’t celebrate it, I hope it was a good day. And, it’s always a good time to stop and reflect on what you’re thankful for.

Let me take a moment to count my blessings.

I just keep getting older
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 3:08 PM

Once again I have survived a full revolution clinging to a ball of dirt and molten metal hurtling through space around a continuous nuclear fusion engine. As with most things, this makes my life sound much more dramatic than it really is. For the non-science nerds out there: it’s my birthday today.

But, as is tradition on my blog, let’s take a look at the past year or so of life.

Negativity and its effect on indie developers
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 8:19 PM

Let me tell you a story about my good friend Dave. He’s a smart guy and an indie game developer. He’s stuck with game development for many years. He finally had a success big enough that he’s working on making games full time.

Dave wants to work on a new game. He’s trying a lot of things. He’s trying some 3D this time instead of going with 2D as he has before. He’s working on some AI-driven stuff, instead of heavily scripted and content-heavy games before.

Dave showed the game to some fellow indie developers. But, you know what he found? Negativity.

And negativity doesn’t help.

Filed under: — Psychochild @ 6:03 PM

Listen to me on the Massively OP Podcast
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 1:49 PM

I’m neck-deep in some work right now, so this is going to be a brief post. But, if you’re dying for some of my wit and wisdom… well, just to hear me talk, you can listen to the Massively OP Podcast where Justin “Syp” Olivetti and I talk about all sorts of things related to gaming, RPGs, and MMOs.

Suffering from a cold currently. Posting will be a bit slow as I have to focus my limited energy on other things right now.

Thanks for your patience!
