yeah I don't want to do this game dev stuff anymore. going outside to touch grass more often
Job-related events in my life have finally been going better lately, but I'm still not closer to posting anything new yet. Had a moment of clarity recently where I've become unhappy with the future prospect of sitting in front of code for hours as a "hobby." Some can do it, I've decided I can't. I still want to give a shoutout to the game engine Godot for having such a wonderful developer experience: even though the games don't really run in a browser, it was so much easier getting things up and running compared to Babylon.js. (I was able to recreate both House Shake and Camera Snap in the same week I picked the engine up!) However, despite the allure of making amazing worlds through games or getting loads of money with a programming job, I don't think coding is something I want to dive any deeper into. It's just kind of a lame life to live. Will explain more in a future newsletter
Gonna be honest, I'm not doing too hot in life right now. Hopefully I can get out of the situation I'm in and show you what I've been up to soon, but for now, I'm still gonna be quiet for a while...
I've been thinking about what I want to make next, but I can't think of ways to share it on my Newgrounds page other than the bare minimum of tossing video thumbnails into the art portal. It was an incredible run during my Stickmen 2020 days, but I think I'm gonna stop posting to Newgrounds now, especially since I had to scrap my 3D browser game projects. I might come back to the site if I ever have actual art to post, but I'll keep my paid Supporter status active even if I don't return.
Otherwise, you can follow one of my other pages below to be notified once I'm no longer dead and have something new to share. Thank you Newgrounds! You've been swell
Hello! It turns out other some life stuff came up, and I'm gonna have to stop posting for a good while to address it. It all mainly has to do with my day job (and also wanting to switch to Godot for my games) but I'll give you the full rundown once I come back. See you later!
P.S. Blockstorm is free now LMAOOOOO
I really want to take a big leap forward with the next mini-project/game I'm working on, so I might be quiet for another while as I disappear into my lab. And by "another while" I mean at least another month or two...
It's been a while... but I finally bring you a new major step forward: the House Shake demo!
Are you a code nerd that likes tinkering with everything? Starting today, my game dev projects are now open-sourced under AGPLv3! Check out the main repo if you want to see how my brain works. (Other things that are actually exciting are still on the way)
Happy new year!! I just uploaded, moved out of my parents' house, said goodbye to my Discord server, and committed myself to return to game development. 2023 is going to be BIG.
I'm currently sick, but the Downloads page is almost done! You can check it out early if you want, it looks pretty cool...
FINISHED THE GALLERY!! Now to finish the Downloads page and then we can get back to business this June...
I'm actually going to need more time to finish my Downloads/Gallery pages- there's a lot more extras I want to add, and I'll be done with everything by June. hope you don't mind the wait! it'll be worth it :)
actually I want to finish my site's Downloads page before I show you the new stuff I'm doing. give me a week or two to get that squared away first, thanks
think I figured out what I want to do now. will show you something new real soon!
THANK YOU ALL FOR AN INCREDIBLE RUN!!! I'm going to take the next month off before I find something new to try. see you soon!!
managed to get a tiny amount of audio work done on the next video, but still currently burned out from my day job.
