Well it's been five years, five years I've spent spitting out projects and getting my creative juices rolling. Five years that I've enjoyed.
And now I think I might leave.
Why? Well, to be honest I don't think I'm being productive with my time, the people I enjoy making games with have already left(my brother, Wildrogue), and I have this weird feeling that this place sort of attracts some fairly odd people, and I'm not sure that I want to be part of it(THE MAJORITY OF YOU GUYS ARE ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC PEOPLE).
I haven't decided if I'm going to leave for certain yet, if/when I do I'll face the problem of leaving my projects.
I have to talk to Wildrogue about what we're going to do with Progeny, but I've really been the only one working on it for a while, so I might have more prerogative. Wildrogue has obviously lost interest and I don't like begging/forcing him to do icons for it. If we hand it off, it will be to a single individual that has interest and ambition.
BYOND Prime is my issue, and I think this community is the most promising of any of my projects. We're still a thinking breathing and vibrant community and have for the most part transcended our roots as a graphics guild. For some reason whenever I look at this guild and am like 'I'm over this, its dead', new things seem to be sprouting up all over. It'd seem morally reprehensible not to hand it off to a guild member, but I don't know who's suitable. What I do know is that whoever decides to take over will have to have a good idea where they are taking the guild.
I don't know if anyone remembers, but I have the rudimentary source for a game called Project Movie, that I showed off on the Spector blog once. That impressed when I hosted it publicly, as people can actually make their own movies with nothing more than a text file and English. And then show them off to the public. I don't know if I want to release that one publicly or not. It is not the type of game that people would rip and it might open up the possibility of more developers and thus more chance of fruition.
Paintball BYOND will stay as is right now, I still see it online even though it is not supported by me, which means people will put in enough effort to play it on their own.
I'll make my final decision of leaving by the next week.
