Category: Weekly Updates

The more observant of you may have noticed that I haven't really been DOING much this week in terms of game-making, since you can now see all my progress as it happens in the box thing above these articles on the main page... I've not been feeling very productive.
And I feel that this will keep up for the next week, too. Agh...

I'm getting stuff done though, which is better than nothing. I'm getting closer to the end on MARDEK 3 and didn't even intend to work on it at all this week, but ended up doing half of NEXT week's work instead... which is good.

Anyway, since there's nothing much else to mention at this point and I'll keep updating that Recent Progress thing anyway, uh, I'll leave it at that for now...

Sorry if it's disappointing, but I seem to have a tendency to be disappointing anyway... o_O

Hey Pseudo you know how you used to have save games from the end of mardek one go into mardek two for items and whatnot, why not make it so that there are secret beasts in beast signer, like novelties, funny thing, you can get by beating mardek game? I know that many game are succesful with that kind of thing

Maybe you'll finally finish Mardek xD. Nah, I'm kidding, well at least look at the good size, you are making more progress this year than last year.

OH MY GAWSH!!! I've been away for just one month and I come back to find this! Psuedo your my newest most favorite hero in the entire world! On the side note I'm imporessed by the way you put the progress boxes up because they really help me see how much progress your making and what you're putting into your games ( instead of having to go hunting the information down.) You even got through with raider, and are up finishing Mardek which makes me want to shout for joy <3 . So im really glad you're progressing really well and i hope that you can continue with all the awsome stuff you do that makes me so darn happy. =D

Aaw, I was hoping that this blog post would have *SOMETHING* related to RAIDER episode 2, since I am eagerly awaiting the next episode. Anyway, hope the sponsorship process is coming along nicely, hopefully, you will get a good offer, if you havent already.
And since MARDEK has become so popular, the sponsors must be willing to pay ALOT for it.
By the way, do you have to stick with crazy monkey games as MARDEK's sponsor for the rest of the series?

I was going to mention something about the sponsorship of Raider 2, but there really wasn't anything TO mention other than 'it's still in progress'...
I think I'm going with Kongregate again, but I need to wait for a reply to my email.

And now, CrazyMonkeyGames sponsored just the first two, rather than the series... thankfully.

Er, is the progress bar for Mardek (the one at the top of the main page showing 90%) still correct? I'd be inclined to think it's more like 95-98%, judging by what you said you have done vs. what you need to do still...

Maybe you could tie it to your new Twitter-ish update thing so it updates automatically? Just a thought.

It's hard to actually calculate a reliable percentage since it's not like I have some perfect list of every thing that has been done and every thing that needs to be done...
There's not much left to do before the main plot is done, but once it IS done, the game would still be only maybe 92-95% done or something, since after that there's loads of refining and additional content that I need to add, things like sidequests.
I was going to increase the percentage after I've done this dungeon I'm working on at the moment, anyway...

I don't know of any way that the progress could be increased automatically by my 'Twitter' thing... hmm.

It could only be automated if you had a more or less detailed breakdown in your planning - I wasn't quite sure whether you did but it looked like it, seeing that your prediction looks pretty good this time. (Note: if you turn out to finish M3 in late October, I'll still say the prediction was pretty good - you said September some time around March, so the error is definitely less than 20%.)

This reminds me that I've wanted to send you a link for quite some time now:

It says the article is obsolete, but actually, it's quite good (especially for a one-man team, which as you'll see simplifies things further). The newer article (the suggested replacement) is more for larger teams with managers who aren't busy enough so can play around with all those statistical prediction tools (this is half joking, a good dev team needs managers who play around with that kind of thing). Besides, the old one is also better reading. :)

At least it isn't simply "Nothing To Report".
