The game is out. So what have I been up to?
I've found myself in an odd position after War Ender was released. I sort of knew that it would happen, but it still feels odd all the same. Working on a project for a year and a half and releasing it to the world does this to you. What am I talking about? Well, I'm in a state of mind where I want to start other projects and don't really know how to begin.
This isn't unusual, and as I said I expected. I haven't done much with development of any kind since the game's release because I've been trying to play catch-up with some other things going on in the background. All that said, I'm still tossing around some game ideas in the back of my mind and am looking forward to translating that onto paper and eventually code. As a result of all this, this will be a shorter dev blog, but I think it's a good place to share a couple announcements.
For starters, I'll be appearing at MOGameCon on August 4th. As of this writing, that's two days away. I haven't talked about it much as I was still getting some things confirmed and figured out, but I think it's about time I said something about it. The day before I'll also be visiting the St. Louis Science Center for another one of its First Friday events. So I'm gonna be all over Saint Louis this weekend. So if you want a chance to chat with the War Ender dev or try the game, these will be the places to do it! MOGameCon info can be found here: https://www.mogamecon.com/
Since we're on the topic of getting War Ender out and about, I think it would be nice to continue to demo the game IF it's possible. Of course I'll keep you updated on those things, but I believe it would be nice to continue demoing the game where possible to help the word get out more and to continue building my own audience. And speaking of building audiences, that's partly what these dev blogs are for. I should probably talk about a change coming to them.
After this dev blog that you're currently reading goes live, dev blogs will now be arriving on a monthly basis instead of bi-weekly. Why? Well, as War Ender is now done there really isn't much to talk about. And I don't know how soon I'll be able to start showing off new projects, so for my sake and yours the dev blogs will start being created monthly. It helps you because I don't want to waste time on dev blogs that don't actually tell you anything, and it helps me as I don't have to struggle to come up with things to write about.
I wish I had more to share with you right now, but as I'm catching up with some life stuff I haven't given myself much time to do anything development related. But by September, when the next dev blog goes live, I may start to have a little more to share about what I'm working on, specifically with the smaller project that I teased in the last dev blog. I do hope you drop by and check it out when it arrives. But until then, I hope you continue to enjoy War Ender. And tell your friends about it. All of them.
Until next time!
