2015-10-17 - Sometimes, you're just going to get one

Note - this is at the bottom of the article but it's important so here it is here as well: I've omitted the person's account name from the above image and purposefully NOT linked to the review. This person doesn't deserve your attention, and I explicitly ask that you refrain from hunting them out on my behalf. Let's just focus on the awesomeness of you folks instead.

This entry won't be about the game development itself, or the technical aspects. It's a bit more of a personal status one.

To put it bluntly: I'm a bit worried about QoS2QQ.

Not the game itself - the gameplay seems pretty fun, the scope creep of adding bots seems to have converted into reality pretty well, and the UI is something I'm very proud of. I'm proud of the game and the work I've done on it. What's troubling me, is how little traction I seem to be getting as of late with regard to marketing it.

2015-09-17 - I don't fucking want your game idea (really)

There was once a perfectly succinct article on this topic but I can't find it - so instead you get this one by me. Strap in, it's going to get a bit sweary - like all of my best writing.

This particular topic comes up every now and then - sometimes it even includes a request to sign an NDA.

Let's start off with a simple statement: I do not want your game idea. I do not want to steal it.

There's been a lot of progress on the game since the last update. Forgive me if I miss anything I've worked on - it's been a long fortnight.

Despite being sick, I managed to get some solid progress in this week. While last week's progress was very much about the ingame visuals and gameplay elements, this week was about what I call framing (that is, the elements around the actual gameplay that help the player enjoy it). This week, I coded in Crabbens to commentate the early portions of game setup

I've been pretty fortunate the last fortnight or so to get a surprisingly good amount of work done on QoS2:QQ. Some of it's been surprisingly productive behind the scenes stuff that the players may not notice, but some of it has been very visually indicative.

I've added:

The last little while, I've been working on a multiplayer version of Quarries of Scred, my first commercially available game. The multiplayer variant is aimed at local, competitive play (I've thrown around the pros and cons of network play, and co-operative play and decided against them both. This'll be covered in a later piece).

2015-07-16 - 'I want to make an MMO'

This is actually a reposted entry from my old site (from 2013-03-25) - but it's always going to be appropriate so I need a new link to send to people.

'So, I was thinking of making an MMORPG... it's my first project....'

Hold up. Let me stop you, right there. This is a bad idea. Very, very, very bad. Why? Because if you do this, it will be your last game as well...

Here's why this is a bad, bad, soul destroying idea. IF you:
