So I'm having a bout of Must Get Things Done and am trying to organise my stuff so's I can get it all done.  I don't usually let others in what I'm doing because I have a general paranoia that it will set off a chain of 'no you should stop doing that thing that matters to you and do what I want and if you don't drop everything to do what I want you will ruin Christmas'.  Like, I know you're better than that, but I've run into enough that aren't to get twitchy about it.

So here's a thing that matters to both of us ( in that I got a few e-mails about it while I was on semi-break ) and I'm asking your input on: All Hail Flamewar, it will continue, but how?  So, the status update:

I was building the AHF game in RPG Maker VX Ace.  Back in late October, I bought the new version, RPG Maker MV.  I spent some time playing with the new engine to see if I liked it.  There's ups, there's downs, but in general I found I prefer MV.  It felt really weird to use Ace again when I got back to working on it.  Then Christmas-based Real Life happened and that distracted me until January.

The AHF game is over half-done, I'd say ( about half the chapters are done, but the chapters in the second half are shorter. )  Current options, as they stand, are:
a) Finish the game in Ace and hate doing it, because it means finishing a bunch of sprites I will never use again because they don't fit the larger MV format.  Making sprites is my least-favourite part of building these games.
b) Convert the game to MV, which means redoing all the pixel art ( I like doing tiles, but sprites, argh ) and figuring out ways of doing some of the interface since MV doesn't allow button input ( that I know of.  Maybe someone did a script.  Anyway, not the end of the world. )
c) Release what's available ( I've been building it in order so it is playable, though a lot of the art is placeholders ) as a curiosity, accept that I bit off more than I could chew, and get back to drawing the comic like normal.

I'm currently leaning towards Option C, much as I hate dumping a project, so I can get back to the comic.

Also I apparently have a Patreon now.  Donate, don't, whichever.

Hey Wayward! It's been a while, I've been wondering 'bout what you were doin', but after seeing your journal entry, ah...you're getting things done here.

Always doing stuff, often slowly, sometimes stuff that doesn't show up here because it's unrelated to what I do online.  But always busy.

Just wanna brag, this weekend at comicon I got a complete G2 Devastator (minus the guy's individual guns) for only TWENTY-FIVE BUCKS. They're pretty loose, Bonecrusher can't stand up without support, but I still love 'em.

Drop off your resume with Shrapnel.  No experience required, but you do need to be able to eat an entire car.

I can eat a lot, just not an entire car. Yet.
