Return to Sender

Damn it feels good to be working again. It seems that not only has my time away from this finally come to an end, but my time as a social pariah has also. It’s been a pretty good week really. Good to be here writing this, about this. If I had a horse to ride,…

Collision Course

I got collision to work in Paper Zeppelin yesterday, and now when you crash your little dude into the ground it does something. It’s kind of cute and it works like I thought it would. Also, I got ground to work, which brought up some interesting things. First of all, making the ground tiles 100…

PZ Like Sunday Morning

The Big List is together for Paper Zeppelin, and at first blush it seems like a lot. I’ve made the mistake before of saying something to the effect of, “No problem. I can get this done in like an hour,” so I’m not going to let the size of the thing seem like it’s not…

Back in the Saddle

Damn it feels good to be back and working again. I had almost forgotten after so long how downright awesome it can be, on a minute to minute basis, to be in the process of putting together a video game. Even the extra surrounding crap takes on a weird kind of joy, since I know…

The Wastes

Today is a funny kind of day. A sad kind of day really, but more because it’s less funny in a “Ha Ha” sense and more funny in an off putting way with a kind of underlying anger at myself. It has to do with why this particular diary has so many missing entries. You…

The Lost Weekend

It’s been a while since I typed anything onto these pages. I spent a part of yesterday re-reading chunks of my own diary, and the writing seemed foreign somehow. The jokes funny again because I had forgotten that I wrote them. It’s been far too long. In case you’re curious (I say to all the…

Quest Line

I’m finding myself in a somewhat positive situation now. Well, it has the possibility to be positive, in spite of the fact that it very well may change the trajectory that I’m on. Or it may be positive for exactly that reason. I’m trying not to get all worked up over it though. It’s a…

Much Ado About Nothing

My dreams have become more vivid as of late. I wonder if it has anything to do with my creative juices sitting in the cupboard. I hope that I can keep it on a simmer, and that it A) doesn’t atrophy, and B) doesn’t explode into some kind of insanity. I used to be able…

Quisnam Partum Intentio?

Let’s get this right out of the way, and then I’ll get into my post (It seems that my absence hasn’t taught me how to start one of these things correctly, oh well). The bit that is keeping me from laying down sweet, sensual Paper Zeppelin code is still in effect. Which burns my insides…

IGDA

So I’m walking out to my car wearing the nicest casual shirt that I own while also rocking the hipster flippy floppies and socks (the kinds with the grey toe even) since my shoes were planning to rendezvous with me at the auto. I’m well onto my way to my first IGDA meeting. Previously I…

Defiance

Yep. It’s been a month. Well, longer than that actually. A month and a couple of extra days since the the thing we’ll just call the “shenanigans”. Not too much has changed really, and this update is more to have something, anything really, to let out some of the steam just before I break down…
