Game Over? Retry? (YES/NO)

As everyone, except perhaps myself, has become aware, Cloud Story has been frozen indefinitely.  Still not cancelled though.  Instead I’ve been busy taking classes, and dabbling on my alternate Cave Story project, codenamed, NightShade. 

With Cloud Story, I was always limited to “what would Pixel do…?”  Which is why, NightShade has offered me the creative freedom to create my own universe.  That said, it still suffers from the same scatterbrain developer, “ME”, so progress has been slow; and often halted while I worked on classwork, or played one of the 700+ games sitting on my PC atm. 

On that note, I’ve put up an assembla SVN project to manage the chaos, and to try transparent, ordered development.  I’ve thought about asking some people to join this team of one, though probably after I have significant progress towards the demo.  That would help any contributors have an idea of what direction to work towards, and/or to focus on fixes and enhancements.

Oh.  Also, for any Hammerwatch players out there, I’ve been doing a little map making, further spreading out my time… (ala. the image.)

But, don’t worry!  No more projects than these!

    Don’t be like me. I canceled my CS Prequel project for almost the exact same reasons (school, so many games I want to play, and me being a horrid developer). Seriously, there are pretty much no completed Prequels or Sequels of Cave Story. So no, do not quit. Think of all of those hours that would have been wasted if you decided to quit.

    Hi. I would like to see Cloud Story progress. NightShade seems really cool as well. Not sure what you should do. *sigh* I have problems with project completion too… I wish you well.
