O thou of evil luck

My glasses are now permanently broken. This makes things much harder.

I have also suddenly encountered a bug that I cannot explain and that has never cropped up before. Maybe it was a fluke, but I don’t think so. Trying to figure it out, which is hard because it seems to be pretty random. Why now? I have played the same part of the game something like a billion times before. I wasn’t even trying anything new.

Other than that, making slow progress, and trying to fight the onset of depression. It’s hard not having finished this yet. This was supposed to be a good day. Feeling bad for having said it would be done this morning. But then, I didn’t expect this. I never do.

It really does feel like Urizen himself is trying to stop me…

…in which case, I suppose, the only thing to do is to tell him to fuck off and get on with my work.

    So it’s not coming out today?
    And how terrible is your vision without glasses?

  2. Umm, I’m still trying to get it out today. It depends on multiple factors.

    My vision is pretty shitty. I can read, but it’s all very blurry.

  3. Come on, Jonas, you can do this! Even if it takes you another week, you can do this. We’ll wait.

    See, Jonas (“Joe-nas” or “Yo-nas”?), this reality is actually a game being made by a highly deluded true-you, a game about you making a game, and these are the sadistic obstacles you’ve throughly tested to be sure that they utterly break the player character’s moral.

    Your consciousness is a sadistic, self-depreciating, involved to the point of blindness to what’s actually going on.

    Dude, you need a break. *gives you a Kit-Kat Bar*

  5. I hadn’t considered that possibility, but now that you mention it, it sounds very realistic. I must be a real bastard.

    Thanks for the chocolate, though.

  6. Oh, and as for the pronunciation… either is fine. I use “Joe-nas” myself, but don’t object to the more German version.
