Update

Well, hello there. I've not posted an update here in a while... I've not got much work done on games either, I'm afraid.

I've started a part-time art course at a small nearby college place thing, just for the sake of getting out of the house if nothing else, so I've been preparing for that both by focusing on art, and by mentally conditioning myself; it's been a long time since I've really been around real human people, and I have that anxiety thing, so I couldn't just dive right in and expect to cope alright...

It's a part-time course, so it shouldn't distract me too much from game development. If anything, I'm hoping it'll motivate me more because I won't be able to work on games constantly, and we tend to want what we can't have a lot more than what we do have. Or something.

It'll take a while to get into the rhythm of things, though; I'm still feeling sort of 'shaken up' by the changes in my routine (I'm having to wake up many hours earlier than I'm used to, for example), and it's basically impossible to focus on game development as it is.

I hate all these constant delays to Miasmon - it was supposed to be out ages ago - but I hate the constant loneliness of my existence even more, so doing something about that has been a higher priority recently.

Anyway, that's why I've not updated recently. I'll let you know when I get back to work.

It's really good to see you do something about your personal problems! It inspires me to do the same about my own...

I can't wait to see how this will affect your life, your game-developing and also the artwork in your future games.

Thanks and good luck!

Mental well being should be everyone's main focus anyway, It's not like you're the only awesome game developer who's had to put the game making on hold to deal with personal stuff or things that will improve them or their lives in the long run.(I doubt you'd be able to postpone a game as long as some people have even if you tried anyway :p)

I just hope you can adjust to the course and stuff without it being too much stress and such.

Hey Lonewolf, it's great that you're doing that art course! You're getting out there and (probably) socializing with people, and that's great! As for Miasmon, take as long as it takes,. I'm quite sure it'll be worth the wait. Love your games man!

Go you! Hang in there and put the game on hold for as long as you need. Your life and mental health should always come first.

I support your decision. I can wait for miasmon. And when it comes out, I'm sure I'll love it.

Thirded. Miasmon will jumpstart your career as an official game developer, I hope. Good luck and everything!

So... what's the difference between human people and non-human people? But in all seriousness, this is probably a good thing, so good luck, and such!

Human people are humans and non human people are like the scientist guy's metal man in MARDEK, or the reptoids, The people who have such differences that they can't really be classified as human.

Well, I hope you enjoy the course. Also yes I know what you mean when you say you think it'll have a motivating effect on you. The mind is very illogical in that regard. And don't worry about Miasmon. It's closer than ever before. By way of interest, what kind of art course is it?
