Still sick but Dozen Days of Words episode 3 is done

Episode 3 is finally finished, though my cold still lingers. Normally I recover very quickly from colds but this one does not want to let up. Perhaps it is a sign that I am getting old. Perhaps the diet I am currently on is taking more out of me than I realized. Perhaps I happened to have caught a very strong strain of whatever it is that infected me. This means that I didn't get as much work done as I wanted to. That said, the planning and skeleton for episode 4 has been completed. The fourth episode is a semi-original game and as such means that the results are not predictable but the idea seems like it should be fun so hopefully the results will be a fun game.

It turns out that my decision to delay Episode 3 was the correct one. Last night other obligations showed up. To make matters worse, I had a sore throat which as I feared turned into a full-blown cold. By cold I really mean that I really am cold and just hope all my shivering actually is burning off calories. Not much work on Episode 3 is going to be done today but if the weekend finds me feeling better then you can be sure that a large block of time will be devoted to both Episode 3 and Episode 4.

Delay confirmed.

While a lot of progress was made on Dozen Days of Words episode 3 today, and if I work on it in the evenings before the initial release date it is likely that it could be finished on time, I have decided that I will officially delay the game a week. While I do intend to try and still get the game done before Friday, it will not be released until April 3rd no matter when it is finished. The fourth episode will start development immediately after the third episode is finished. It is tentatively scheduled for release on April 17th and will hopefully not be delayed.

Falling behind schedule

A funeral occupied a good chunk of my day and progress on the third episode of Dozen Days of Words is not as far along as I would like. I plan on hopefully finishing the game tomorrow, assuming nothing comes up. I do hope that I will not have to delay next week's game but if worst comes to worst then I may do so.

March has spikes too

It has been a month since the last time I had the chance to post an entry to the Blog. Since that time I have finished posting all 13 parts of the Thirteen Days of Releases on Blazing Games. For those of you who haven't checked out Blazing Games lately, these releases consist of Day 5 of One of those Weeks (all 6 episodes that make up the day being releases as Open Source and the making of chapters for those 6 episodes being released) as well as the campaign mode version of Thirteen Spikes Unlimited.

The next Friday the Thirteenth is quite a while away and will feature a construction set. I will probably do another 13 days of releases that month as well with Day 6 of One of those Weeks being the other 12 releases. This plan is not set in stone and if things continue to be as hectic for me as they have been then this may not happen. It is just sad that so much of the things that are stealing my time are not money making ventures.

I am going to try to get back to posting an entry here at least once a week but can not make any guarantees.
