One More Update

OK, I’m giving up. Not on the game, just on finishing today. I don’t feel well enough physically. I shouldn’t have been so confident, but how could I know that all of these things would happen:

  • complete destruction of glasses
  • extreme stomach pains, probably due to the stress
  • realization that a few important files had not been backed up
  • batshit bizarre bug

My apologies to those who were looking forward to playing today. Given my obsession with doing things on time when it comes to the theatre, it drives me insane that so many of my personal projects go like this. I think a large part of the problem is that I’m not getting paid for this, and so a lot of other things end up taking away time from the work.

That, and my tendency to attract days like this. I mean, what the fuck. At some point I was just sitting there mumbling “I can’t believe this” to myself.

So, the current state of affairs: almost everything is done. What’s missing is one really important audio file. The thing is, I have to recreate that file, not find it (because the original is gone), so I have decided to do it tomorrow morning. I could do it today, but I’d end up having another nervous breakdown. I already had two today, and I don’t need another one.

I’m not going to make any brave announcements now. I will just say that I think the game will be ready for downloading tomorrow noon. I think. I have no idea what horrible things might happen. But it’s possible that you can play it tomorrow.

And now, good night.

P.S. Our governments are sitting on their arses while thousands of people in Haiti are dying – thanks to social conditions that have essentially been imposed on that poor nation. If you want to help out, you could donate some money by following this link to the Haiti Emergency Relief Fund. We have very little money, so I only donated 15€ myself – but every little bit counts, and if our institutions won’t function, we have to help each other somehow.

    Aww. Poor Jonas. 🙁
    Take a rest and don’t feel bad about it.

    I have heard tell of Urizen. He is a terrible, all-infecting force of orthodoxy, of forced normality. If he has reached into your world, you are undoubtedly one of his innumerable targets.

    Never give up. This is all you can do. And it will work.

    Oh, and have you fixed that bug yet, or know what caused it? Talk of computer problems makes me uncomfortable, but I am not quite sure why.

    Why did I use those letters for my name? I… can’t remember… when I try to think about my past, all I see is… the house… the desert… and before that…

    …stars?

    Sometimes, it feels ike I just filed my memories away. Like I don’t need them any more. Like there’s nothing left for me in my past. If this is a dream, I sleep in a place I cannot leave, a place that has nothing more for me.

    What the bloody fuck are you blathering on about?

  5. This. But no, that wasn’t me.

    I kinda realized what he meant, but seriously, what the Hell, man? Who was that guy?

  7. I don’t know, but it was hilarious. *grin*

    Talk about characters coming to life…

  8. Despite the snow and the rain, today looks a brighter day. I hope it’s the same in terms of bug-hunting in P32. And if I can help in any way, just give me a shout. 🙂
