        My boyfriend, Goldstorm does. Heck, on night shift people will flat out whip out their personal laptop and play Star Craft.

        I tried installing on my work computer but it doesn't work. I may have to follow suit and bring in my own laptop!

      Really wish I could get back on the horse. This summer is getting way busier than I anticipated.

      Steam says by "hours played" on RPGMaker is now 152 hours. I'm hoping by the weekend to get it to 165 :p

        I do too. I moved, did exams, learnt to drive, did a musical, etc. Just this month. It was my busiest of my life (that said, who knows how busy next year will be?)

      I would like to go home and continue building, but I have four hours left in this Death Shift. My feet are on fire from standing up for 8 hours already.

        Banana pudding is my favorite desert ever, though I only get it once or twice a year. It is best chilled and served on a hot summer day! :D

      BACK UP YOUR STUFF. I don't know what it is about this community, but I read about catastrophic hard drive failures three times a day.

        Auto-updates off, dropbox syncing on, USBs (Sorry, Pen Drives! :p ) sometimes, and monthly backups on another hard drive or two.

        The way I see it, time is money. So I dropped $80 some time ago on a 1TB external hard drive, and just duplicate everything. They money spent is time saved!

      Dropping bad news on employees is always a bit of a downer. Luckily, with great responsibility comes great paychecks!

        Shadow Hearts makes me want to play random battles. It's a pretty great way to keep players engaged.

      Haven't touched my game in over one week now, exclusively due to Real Life. All my free time has suddenly gone the way of the dodo!

    My name is Nick, and I'm an alcoholic.... no wait, let me start over.

    I grew up farming Warmechs outside of Tiamat's room with my four-Master Final Fantasy party, if that gives you any idea as to my personality. I just want to have fun. I want to find everything. I don't want to use the FAQ. And I want to drink a beer in celebration when I'm done.

    I bought RPG Maker VX Ace when it was randomly on sale one day on Steam, and after fooling around with it for an hour, I wrote it off as "not what I was looking for".

    Six months later I picked it up again and decided it was fine. I'm currently making a game with no title and no feasible story. Why? Because right now I just want a game that feels like the ones I played in an earlier day. I want a game where I can walk around an arbitrary room, run into some Pink Puffs, and maybe, just maybe, get a pink tail I can trade in for some boss armor. I want a game where the character names are pronounceable, and likely have just the right number of consonants and vowels, and absolutely no apostrophes. I want a game about regular dudes doing regular stuff, not necessarily saving the world or fighting evil or questioning religious beliefs. It's all so heavy handed these days.

    Level design is sort of my Special Power, but I came up through art college, and have quite a bit of programming know-how too. So there are no limits to my abilities, except perhaps for the whole "I have a full time job and my free time is limited" thing. So I have a very carefree attitude about building my game. No deadlines, no hard goals, no absolute hopes of completion. But I enjoy the work and the experience, and someday I hope you'll enjoy it too.
