So apparently I will be briefly visiting Sydney and Melbourne. Anyone has recommendations of must-see sights? :) Jan 16, 2016

      Why do I see so many people with cat avatars but not a single dog? Is the forum taken over by cat huggers?? ;)

      Flying home to the States tomorrow. Woohoo! I am suntanned, loaded up with souvenirs, saw awesome places and managed to eat a kangaroo. Well, the steak at least ^^

        How did you like kangaroo? I tried it and ended up not being much of a fan. Welcome home! The trip sounded great.

        Thanks, Ms Littlefish! I just reached home :) To be honest, kangaroo tasted a lot like beef to me. If there was a blind taste test, I would not be able to tell the difference :)

      On the other side of the world now! During my 14 hour flight, I watched Ant Man, Mad Max and Brave because Sharm reminded me I havent seen Brave yet. Those were indeed scary bears

        Subliminally, I don't know why it seems to make the white less glaring. Easier on the eyes and next best thing to a dark theme ;D

        Yeah, I think having a more exaggerated border makes it seem "less bright", which is what I figured. People have been complaining it's brighter.. it's technically not, it's just the way the default template (which I just did a recolor of) is setup border-wise.. Plays tricks on your eyes.

      Good grief. Even Yahtzee of Zero Punctuation named Undertale as his best game of 2015. I wonder what I'm missing. (no spoilers please! ;)

        I had a friend gift it to me and I fell in love with it almost instantly.  It's really something.  Not a master piece, nor does it try to be.  It's simple and fun.

        It's overhyped, but no game could live up to all the love Undertale gets, including Undertale ...

      Just curious, has anyone tried mapping with Old School Modern, Time Fantasy and Crazy Leen's tiles together? Do they work? I got both OSM packs from bundles and for the first time I'm actually considering games in this style.

        The only part that sucks about them is creating resources that are consistent. Things like Battle Backs, Parallaxes, Title Screens, GUIs, etc.

    Hello there! Chris is my name. I've been a writer, editor and proofreader for twenty years, and a video game addict for much longer. In a former life, I was a news journalist for nine years until I threw it all away. I chose to zoom to Scotland and burn my savings on a creative writing degree.


    Was it worth it? Hell yes. Since then, I've been a game designer for an MMO, and am a writer and the editor for the Android RPG Tales of Illyria. Have just finished the third in the series, Tales of Illyria: Destinies, which was named Android RPG of the Year 2015 by Hardcore Droid.


     


    Now freelancing as a writer and editor, I also work on RPG Maker games on the side. I also do professional proofreading and game feedback.


    Released my first solo game on Sept 17, 2014:
