October 2019 Blog Update

Hello There.

Life Stuff

As usual I’ve mostly been at work and in my free time I’ve been looking at other jobs trying to find something to get just a little bit more income in my life. I still haven’t seen anything yet, well anything that I’m qualified or have “experience” for.

I’ve been thinking about what to do with myself once The Thing is over but I still can’t figure it out. I have lots of ideas but committing to them isn’t always easy. If I had infinite time and money (or I didn’t have to work much) that would remove a lot of the obstacles in my way for sure. I’ve been considering making a fantasy RPG as there’s a lot of free resources that can be used for it so it could be made at minimum cost but it may be a bit vanilla.

One of my friends started a YouTube channel a few months ago and he’s been doing no commentary game play videos. I’ve been watching a bit of his Days Gone play through. He’s open to requests and could use more views if anyone’s interested in that sort of thing.

The Thing 2 RPG (v2.6 Update)

I’ve been struggling to find time to playtest the game the last month and with the run up to Christmas I’m concerned work will consume me. I have been trying to put in a spare hour here and there where I can but I think it needs more love than that to get anything substantial done. That spring 2019 release sure is going well for me…

This is the revamped Enco Oil Outpost in Story Mode. The layout is vastly different from before and there are a lot of new assets. I’ve updated a lot of the old areas with new objects and decorations to make them feel a bit more authentic. (Ignore the green lines on the stairs, they don’t appear in-game)

The Public release of the game is still delayed until further notice but a private test build of the game is available for members of my discord server, if you are interested in helping with this you can join my discord server (here) for more information.

That’s about all I have to say for now. I hope that I can fill these blog posts with enough decent information each month to keep them readable. Thanks for reading this and playing my game(s) over the years :)
