Good news

Verena has now finally talked to the person officially in charge of the investigation (man, that sounds like there was a murder or something) and as it turns out, this person is not a bully like the one we previously had to deal with. This makes me no happier about the state of the German law (it should hardly be dependent on whom you get assigned to), but it means that it may be possible to avoid the worst of the nonsense. Which is quite the relief, let me tell you. I obviously should avoid making too many statements here, but we both feel a little better. Dealing with the injuries was bad enough, we didn’t need people saying the sort of things to Verena that I wrote about in the previous post (yes, those were real quotes).

Oh, and I got my payment for the tragically neglected Bundle in a Box. After the vet and the rent and everything else I have to pay for there won’t be much left, but there will be enough to finally send out all the remaining Oneiropolis Compendium entries! Yes! Not having sent them felt most terrible.

Anyway. Back to re-releasing The Sea Will Claim Everything.

    Phew. Thank goodness you finally have some good news.

    Sad about the low BiaB sales, though. 🙁 I’m still really disappointed it wasn’t advertised by more news sites…

    (Note that I’m blaming the news sites, not the BiaB people, who clearly put a lot of work into it and did their best.)

  2. I think it’s really sad that the bundle fell through like that, I tried, and I saw the BiaB people try, but hardly anyone I talked to had interest in the genre being offered, which is really disappointing, but I’m still trying. Do you think you’ll ever put the game in a Humble Bundle?

    It’s good that the personal stuff is turning out better though. That made me seriously reconsider my experience with cops – which hasn’t been good, but at least our police aren’t abusive, just cowardly.

    Yeah, it was quite remarkable. I guess the only thing that can sell an adventure game these days is nostalgia.

    That’s not a matter of choice on my part. I’d love to get the chance to sell my game in a way that will allow me to earn a bit of money – the games in the HIB earn as much in a minute as I earned in the entire run of the Bundle in a Box. I already have to worry about next month’s rent.

    I’d be extremely careful with the police no matter which country you’re in.

  4. It’s not even a matter of country, I think, someone in New York, which is close to my state, had a cop arrest them just because they were walking by a park at night and that might have implicated they use drugs. I only know them from an IRC, but even if they use drugs, that’s a horrible assumption to make. They were walking home from a late shift. It seems like it depends on which cop you run into.

    Unless you live in China, then all the cops are horrible people. :V
