Hi, everyone! It’s been a while and lot of things have happened. Some not good; some REALLY good; some I’d just as soon file under “Well, at least it was a learning experience.” But the good news is that, yes, the site is still alive and I’ve got new plans.
First off, I’m afraid I’ll have to stop my webcomic. I want to tell the story, but… well… it turns out I just don’t like drawing sequential art. I wanted to like it since all the cool kids seem to do webcomics at some point, but in general, I don’t. What I DO like, though, is telling stories — and sometimes including pictures to enhance them.
Which is why I’m going to reinvent the story as an illustrated novella or (if it just takes that much space to tell) novel. The webcomic pages I’ve already posted will stay up as a prologue of sorts, reachable from the novella page once I’ve set it up. I’ll try to update the story weekly, but nothing’s set in stone. [Edit: I've since decided it's best to just shelve Dreaming You for now. Reasons will be explained in a future blog post.]
I have a new Twine game in mind that’s in the planning stages. It won’t be as heavy as the first two, but it will be a bit more expansive and “game-like.” It’ll also include an achievement or two you’ll actually want this time. ;p
A minor site redesign is also in the works. Nothing major, mostly changes to the header and some links to make things a bit sleeker. And the “commissions” page will become a simple art gallery with actual stuff in it.
At least some of these developments will happen later this week. After that, as I usually do, I’ll just see where things go.
