Gold's Vault

This song is mostly upbeat and lighthearted, but that bass guitar in the first few seconds is ABSOLUTELY MENACING!

My mood last night was significantly better than the night before. Somewhere between an extra 23 grams of sugar and talking to friends, things worked out pretty well. And we were talking about some pretty depressing stuff, so it just goes to show how much impact just having people to talk to can have

First of all, I only joked about it turning us into basketballs. That never actually happened.

But yeah, the wand you’re talking about changed her into a cat girl and me into a human, then it changed us back to normal but with our genders reversed. I imagine it could change us into Kittus if we ever got our hands on it again…

Thank you for asking a thing, I no longer consider you a jellyfish

Almost 24 hours, and no one thought of a single question they’d like to see me answer?

You are jellyfish, the lot of you

I Could Use A Boost

Hopefully tomorrow I’ll wake up and I’ll be over the cold I’ve been fighting for a week now. I haven’t done anything productive in days, and it’s starting to weigh down on me.

I’ve been worrying about some things I probably have no need to worry about lately. Whether I do interviews for jobs or try working on my own game project instead, fretting about the girl I like when I know I shouldn’t worry, I’m even worrying about problems one of my friends might have when he hasn’t spoken to me about anything. I’ve just got a lot going on with no energy to face it.

I don’t like making posts like this where I just say “I’m feeling down lately”, but it does help just to say it sometimes. Honestly, I feel like some anonymous questions on here might help to lift my mood in some way. Anyone want to know anything? I’d even be up for challenging questions if anyone thinks of one.

Lots of Games Pushed Back Lately?

It could be my imagination, but it seems like a lot of games I want have had their release dates pushed back lately.

Smash Bros for 3DS: Announced as Summer 2014, now said to be October 2014.

Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse: Announced as Winter 2013, still no official date and said to be Fall 2014

Shantae, Half Genie Hero: Originally speculated as October 2014, but pushed back since there will be a lot more work than originally anticipated (definitely not coming out before Pirate’s Curse).

Batman Arkham Knight: Was supposed to come out in 2014, but now announced for 2015.

Watch_Dogs for Wii U: HA!

A Hat In Time: Originally speculated as February 2014… now has a release date of “When It’s Done”. DANG IT! That’s never good news.

Hopefully this just means that these games will be really good and will be worth the wait once they’re released. Except Watch_Dogs, which is apparently pretty bad and Ubisoft has become a pretty awful company.

Seems that whenever possible, Sunday is the day I spend doing nothing but playing games.

I’ve been sick all week. I’ve been feeling out of it enough that I haven’t worked on my Noel game at all, but I do have at least a bit of progress.

  • Jumping is much more natural.
  • I can add background music if I like.
  • The camera has boundaries that can be calculated easily and change if the screen size changes.

Now… For my reference when I’m feeling better, here’s what I should get together next…

  • Sloped floors.
  • Some kind of simple enemy.
  • Add an option for the camera to scroll smoothly instead of just snapping to different spots.
  • Maybe add a middle point between players 1 and 2 for the camera to follow (this requires not allowing them to move too far from each other so they’re both on screen).
  • The sprites are looking very blurry in screen shots. There should be a way I can make them look more clear.
  • Moving platforms.

Gonna start tagging posts related to this with “Noel” just to make it easier for myself to reference them.

I’m looking for a Firefox add-on that can censor swear words by turning the letters into asterisks or something. I’d be okay with something that directly edits the HTML before the page renders. I’m also okay with needing to see the blue words unfiltered in a settings page or something. Any recommendations?

WayForward has said that they’re almost certain to add Sky, Bolo, and Rottytops as playable characters in Half-Genie Hero. This was the last thing I REALLY wanted added to the game, so I’m pretty excited about it!
The could still use a little push getting there… They’re about $6000 away from $900,000. I think it will probably happen safely before whatever deadline they set. Still, hurts nothing to continue sharing the project, right?
