Dead & Forgotten
- Sep 5, 2018
No worries! As I have said before, daily or even weekly updates would be things like 'I edited 100 voice clips this week, none of which I can share with you to prevent spoilers'. So when I hit a real milestone I can and will discuss it with you all.
good luck!So, with that milestone dealt with, I now need to knuckle down to plugging in the clips. That should take a week or so. The art is also almost done, and I should have the front cover to share in the next week, if things go to plan. Once the art is all here I can get on Steam, and then focus on taking care of some admin at my end while waiting for release.
likewise!Anyway, hope everyone is having a good weekend!
oh no ... get well soon!I came down with a cold
fingers crossedBut yes; Blissful Ignorance is now all sorted barring the last 5 art pages (including the cover), which should be done sometime this week.
that's great to hear, congratsThe game has been getting a lot of positive traction with Steam Curators, which is great!
can't wait!When I have the front cover I'll be updating the theme of this thread, and post a copy here for people to enjoy. That should hopefully be the next post from my end.
whew, crisis averted!So the new program we were using for the trailer demanded an update. When the update was applied it deleted the program and would not let it re-install. After some faffing and tech support, it came back and the trailer is now small enough to fit on the website. Good news!
sounds good to me!Anyway, once the core book is written I am going to try and get the games on some other platforms, such as the Apple store and GoG. That'll be a side project to plugging in all systems and making sure book 4 is good to go in 2020. I'll keep people updated on that progress for sure!
woohoo! congrats!And the game has been approved! There are now no roadblocks between me and the Halloween launch.
no rush, take your timeA busy week with plenty of updates! Hopefully this will make up for the dry spell once book 3 is done and book 4 is going through things like voice over.
LOVE IT!!! it might be the best one so far! and i hope you'll have a great weekend tooIn any case, here is today's image. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
strangely enough - this bit reminds me of this:Many of the contributors had spent time 'recovering' in Bedlam houses, or were otherwise known to be of a morbid disposition.
That one is a classic! I remember when I worked on Runescape, one of the best ever QA bugs I got was for the Ex-Ex-Parrot pet (an undead parrot you bring back to life by putting in a magical cage). The bug was that when you put the dead parrot into the cage, the description says it is pining woefully. But, the tester said, at this stage it is still fully dead and wouldn't be moving around or making noises. Therefore this was a mistake. I had to explain the joke to them, but they did get it in the end.(if you don't know this sketch - watch the video ... you'll know which bit i'm referencing )
hahahahahahaha ... that's AMAZING!!!That one is a classic!

The BEST bug I ever got sent was a double-urgent, class A, game-breaking emergency. I came in on Monday morning and found it in my inbox along with frantic 'deal with this immediately!' emails. Basically, people were not getting experience at the right levels, which was obviously breaking the game. :O I checked, and things seemed to be ok, so I contacted the QA guys that sent it to me. Apparently the issue was that people stopped getting boosted experience. I texted the XP boosts from the double-xp system, and it worked fine. He then told me 'no, no. I mean the double xp from the double xp weekend! That stopped working at midnight on Monday morning!'hahahahahahaha ... that's AMAZING!!!
here's hoping ... and good luck!Hopefully I will find all of the edge cases and issues with the new system while checking this book, and this will prove to be more robust in the future. As noted I don't feel safe taking it back to the earlier ones in case that breaks all kinds of stuff. But this will certainly do for moving ahead.
