I can see a darkness. There are shapes moving in it, but what they are I cannot tell.

It’s been hard for me to remember a more dispiriting week than the previous one. It’s been hard to muster a positive attitude as the hits keep coming.

Let’s take a look at why we may be seeing the end of MMOs as we know them.

NBI: What makes your blog special
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 1:53 PM

Rawr! It's a dragon!

I’m going to claim that I’m fashionably late to the Newbie Blogger Initiative. To be fair, I’ve been busy. So, I’m going to cheat a bit, ignore the rules, and jump right into offering advice. :)

So, what does make your blog special?

The defining moment for Storybricks
Filed under: — Psychochild @ 9:22 AM

Sometimes it astounds me to think about my development history. Most of my career I’ve just worked to make or maintain what I feel are cool games. Part of the reason I still blog even though most people have moved on to other forms of social media is that previous blog entries remind me a lot of where I’ve come from, what I’ve learned, and what I’ve considered important over the years. It’s a bit like keeping a diary and using it to reminisce, without the fear of a sibling finding it to use as blackmail. (Although I guess prospective employers could try to hold something I’ve posted against me in the future.) But, usually when I post on a topic I like to do a quick search to see if I’ve posted about the topic and see how my perspectives might have changed over time.

So, I hope you understand this next line is said without intending to be clichĂ© and without intending to be hyperbole: it has felt as if my career has build up to this singular point in time. We’re taking Storybricks to Kickstarter.

Okay, hopefully that alone excites you, but read on for a bit more information and why you really need to support us.
