    Feeling bad about missing the GBAX compo, missing the sweet adrenaline rush of deadline pressure, and depressed about not releasing anything recently, I'm dusting off one of my old goofy game concepts and setting a hard August 19 deadline for its development, from blank project to release. Watch this space for Bloxoid!

    All other projects are on hold for the next 19 days.

    I know this is a rather useless post, but now if I don't get it done I will be ridiculed and embarassed.

    Any spoilers on what it'll be about?

    I enjoyed all your past games, so this one can only be good :)

    I enjoyed the deadline factor too. Can anyone join in or is this a solo mission?

    If you have a project that would benefit from the deadline, that's great! The more the merrier!

    Alex: Sorry, no hints (I might have to dial back the features to make the deadline!)

    Ive no new project , let alone one that would benefit from a deadline :lol: Im still finishing the last one :eek:

    I found something really nice that I want to use though - Sensible Soccer .tac tactic files - sorry about this link in advance, pop-up and general slowness. Its a tripod hosted site (remember them?) but some cracking info for anyone wanting to make team sports game.

    Uhh, didn't you say only one project at a time to prevent "burn out" in your "Hi I am back" topic?

    Anyways...looking forward to what you come up with!

    Not quite, I said I'd limit myself to making goofy little games... like this one! I think having several game projects at once can help avoid burnout because one of them usually seems fun to work on at any given time.

    but seriously do whatever projects you want at your own pace. I'm just glad to have you back here working on projects again.
