This is my, uh, 'weekly update' thing... Days late. Tsk.

I seem to be in a bit of a rut. I knew it'd happen eventually since it always DOES, but I've fallen out of my scheduled progress for a variety of 'Realife'-related reasons... Annoying.
I've done bugger all in the last few days except play SPORE, but I'm using it as an attempt to motivate myself more in general...

Y'see, the Spore Adventure Editor is an interesting thing, because it allows you to make your own 'Adventure' things but with SEVERE limitations compared to what I can do in Flash, in terms of possible events, numbers of events per Adventure, amount of dialogue, etc.
I'm sort of trying to challenge myself by trying to make a new Adventure each day, to get into a sort of mind where I 'JUST DO IT' rather than putting things off. It's also a good way of coming up with new ideas for plots and monsters, coming up with the best ways to make a story flow (or something), and making dialogue succinct but telling a story anyway. It might help change the long rambly format of the dialogue in MARDEK to something more manageable.

Since I'm talking about it, I might as well mention that my Spore account is [Pseudolonewolf] (I always call myself that...)
For those of you that have Spore and its expansion things, maybe you'll get some mild, possibly tedious form of enjoyment from my maladroit and amateur attempts at Adventures... There's six or so at the moment, and as I said, I'm doing one a day.

It is disappointing for myself to know that I've achieved little progress on my games recently... but I hope to be out of this state soon. Some lifestyle changes are in order, which I've been starting to make today and I'll try to continue to do so throughout the week...

I keep putting off progress on MARDEK 3 because I get to bits where I can't think of exactly the right thing to happen next, so it just blocks my progress for days... What I'm trying to do as a change - which I'm doing in my Spore Adventures for practice - is to simply 'skip it' and move on, coming back to it later. I imagine this would make me far more motivated... But, uh, this is just rambling to myself more than anything. Yes, I seem to use this as a way of talking to myself to some extent. o_O

Raider 2 is still awaiting sponsorship... It could take a while. There are some things related to that that I need to sort out... Hmm.
Once it IS released though, I'll try to get the third episode done and up for sponsorship as soon as possible, so then it could be released as soon as possible.

Hmm... I seem to have had a lot of miserifying thoughts recently about friendship and loneliness in the last few days, which are largely responsible for my rut (or a result of? I can't tell), but mentioning such things here any less vaguely than this might be... disastrous... so, uh, oooooo~! Mysteeeerious~!
Or something. o_O

So, uh... I'll try to get back on track this week... Here's hoping I do.

Bah, I'm such a disappointment all the time, I know, I know... D:

<font color=turquoise>Well, at least you aren't dead. Or, uh, abducted by alien fans who are forcing you to make MARDEK 3 just for them, or something.

Don't worry, Pseudo. We understand if you have to put Mardek off for
a while. As long as you're still trying we can wait.
