Small website change

It’s ironic considering I could really use the help right now (Update: things are less urgent now, so the donation link is also gone from that post), but after thinking about it a while, I’ve decided to remove the usual donation box from the sidebar. This site started off as a place for my video reviews. Then for a webcomic I’ve since discontinued and gaming/movie articles that I only write when I feel the need. Finally, my more focused efforts shifted to making games — focused enough that I figured I’d best put the game stuff on its own site.

Now, this is just my personal blog. A place to share thoughts and random artwork on a completely irregular basis and maybe make some friends. And once my current troubles have passed, I would rather that be all it is.

I’ll also be taking down the Pixie’s Sketchbook Facebook fan page and just linking to my [up-to-now-almost-never-used] personal one.

Take Care,

Pixie’s Big [Mis]adventure: Time to Ask for Help


VERY FINAL UPDATE: If there’s any doubt about it, yes the company that did this is Project Million Entertainment. Please, for the love of God, do NOT work with these people.

[Final Update(?): Things aren’t 100%, but due to unexpected circumstances, the immediate crisis isn’t as immediate anymore. No, that nameless company still hasn’t sent me my money (I’ll mention it if they do), but… things have worked out for now. So, I’m unsticking this post. Thanks again to everyone who’s supported me in any sense–and I’m glad to take this out of the spotlight.]


Short version: I need help with rent and utilities pretty quickly, so I’m putting this out here as a last resort. Hopefully, things will stabilize and I can move on with my life. My direct PayPal address is <Redacted>.

Long version: Gather round, ye children, and I shall share with thee my strange and sorry tale. It’s a story of friendship, promises made, and promises repeatedly broken. It is also the story of how a person can cling rather pitifully to an opportunity they see as their last hope. (more…)


Separating the Conjoined Twins

Short version: I’m moving all my game stuff — dev blog entries, concept art, whatever — to this site. The personal stuff will stay here.

Long Version: For a while, I’ve been balancing a couple of different things on this site: my game projects and a personal blog. Lately, as my games become more “game-like” and less like diary entries, I’ve been feeling the need for separation. That’ll probably be even more than case once I finish my first non-Twine game.

I figured I’d best take care of it now, before things get more unwieldy. Over the next few days, I’ll be moving all my game dev type posts and pages to the new site and deleting them from here. (I’ll still keep links to my newest games in the sidebar, though.) The new site also has its own twitter, so anyone who just wants game info won’t have to sort through personal updates. People who follow my personal Twitter may wish to follow it, too, to make keeping up with my game updates easier. I’m also thinking of deleting the Pixie’s Sketchbook Facebook page and just posting this site’s updates to my personal account since more people are there, anyway. :p

So, if things start disappearing, don’t worry. They’ve probably just been moved here.


New Game: Shadow of a Soul

Just in time for Halloween, I’ve got a new Twine game for you. This one is *GASP!* erotic horror. The rest (assuming you’re of age to see such things) you’ll have to discover on your own.

Play the game here.


Twine Tutorial: Conditional Questions

This tutorial is now found here, on my games site.

[Note: I talk fairly frankly here about kinky things.] (more…)


New Game: Eden

I’ve got a new game for ya, very different from the first two — and the most traditionally “game-like” game I’ve made so far. It’s called Eden. You can play it here.

It’s sort of part RPG, part action game, and part dating sim, and it was created in Twine. As of 10/14/2013 I *think* I’ve fixed the last bug, but you never know. If the game throws any errors/blank screens for you (or you simply have a question or comment about the game itself), please let me know.

Oh, and not a lot is certain in this game. Who you’ll encounter. What turn events take. Not even your [potential] love interest’s gender. You’ll just need to see for yourself.

Enjoy! :)
