So it's a thing now, I'm 29 years old. You think you're young, but the numbers kind of have that effect on you, you know? You doodle on your Wacom and code games for fun, and your age is telling you to go find a GF and buy a house (I think its more like my parents, though I don't certainly mind the GF part.) I most certainly am looking, just haven't found anyone for the job as yet.
An entire year later after this whole Kickstarter business,
and I have made huge strides in completing my Michiko story. As of August 2015, the writing is actually finished (a huge accomplishment) and we're a little more than halfway done with illustrations. Some stuff had been on hold for a bit due to school obligations and such, but we're getting back on track and hope to have it done for this set of holidays, hopefully!

Lastly, still can't believe this happened. It's still a surreal dream to me and I still shake my head that its actually happening. But Kenny Chow is composing a theme song for Dawnstar.
Yes. Kenny Chow as in CC Catch. The dude that did the Zone 66 and OMF 2097 music, those old DOS games that I fawned over when I was younger and listened to its music repeatedly on end.
I never ever dreamed that I would even speak to him. It was like looking at someone's work and they had moved on, wondering what happened to them. I suppose it shows how times have changed.
That game is almost done.
has almost all the art done and I have two solid weeks of writing to finish. I have some other music stuff to sort out, but by October the game should be ready to go. I'll be looking into distribution soon to see if it can get on Steam or such, but it will most definitely be available off my website. And the last month I made the decision to make a different framework modular, so that I can continue to write new episodes for Raju and company to embark on.

I think that's all I have to announce for now. Hope everyone is doing well and summer went great. I can already smell autumn in the air, sadly. Can see it with the sunlight.
