Ugh. That moment when family isn't arguing directly, but instead grumble about each other's problems.... Aug 14, 2015

        That happens too often. You have my sympathies.

      Another thought on my potential game idea. "... but what if the Evil Overlord was really the *good* guy??" (or girl, whatever)

        What comes in mind here is that old character plot; the very bad evil guy who pass all along for the good guy and fool the heroes in their long quests making them do evil deeds while they think doing things for the good side. And they are devastated when they finally understand it was always a lie.

        Ah, that's an interesting take, a "reversal of expectations" story.


        But in my case, I kinda already "saw" the plot as a mini-movie in my mind (I have a *very* active and potent imagination) and more-or-less intend that the overlord went "evil" due to specific situations when younger.

        That works too. :) We had a lot of tyrants in history like that!

      I have a recurring game idea that I wonder if it's been done before. Essentially, it would be a sequel to a previous game -- any previous game -- where the good guys have won, and you are playing the evil overlord, now banished to some nameless, formless limbo. The point of the game is not about power (or, not directly) but about self-examination and internal "growth" of character. Ideally, the game would allow the character to create some kind of "mental realm" in this vo...

        Thanks for that, Marquise, NeoFantasy. It's hard to know exactly how long a game this idea could turn out to be; could be anything between a half-hour let's try, or a ten-hour full playthrough. How does anyone quantify this???


        Anyway. It does seem like a decent idea for a game; hence my update post. But somehow I still have a nagging feeling that I'm missing some flaw in the idea; if nobody can find one, I guess I'll just have to try to start developing it, to see whether...

      The day before Cinco de Mayo is a day Star Wars fans know: "May the Fourth be with you." Hahha. But seriously; does anyone do anything on that day? I presume cosplayers might, it may be interesting to see some of it.

      I am drained of energy, emotion. 3 days ago I spent a couple hours trying to talk a person out of committing suicide, and I'm not even sure I succeeded in the convincing. 2 days ago is this April Fool's day an nobody would believe me. Yesterday I said "to heck with it." Now, I ... just don't know how to feel. Numb, I guess. Someone, tell me, I tried to do the right thing....

        (hug) Just remember that ultimately people are responsible for their own choices and there's only so much we can do to help them along their way. Continue to let this person know you care - it may go farther than you realize.

        Not to expose too much of the details, but I'm not sure I can get through to her. But, I *am* sure that I want to accuse the people who procure the alcohol, the drugs, and any other mind-altering substances that she abuses, of being partially at fault. I'm not involved in any of that; I keep my life as clean as possible. Still conflicting issues, though; because seeing someone in pain and talking of suicide is just as hard.

        I will read cliché here but you did the right thing.


        I guess we all have our own way to deal with futureshock in this necrotic society. It seems really hard to tell others they are not disposable goods when all the medias seems to promote the idea. that we can't feel good unless buying an ephemeral utopia piece.


        We must never forget what's make us real. We all have to care. <3

      Tomorrow. I turn 41 years of age, and I feel every day of it. Now, I don't celebrate birthdays because of personal religious beliefs, but nevertheless, it's not easy to get older. (41? old? hmm) Nervously counting down the hours.

        I guess I shouldn't complain; I've still got parents and siblings. -- As long as we can still put a smile on, no matter what the age number, we will be alright. I think.

      I'm a bit perplexed on how I could have a development blog with 8 posts, 2221 views, but _only 7 comments_ this whole time. Why all the views and few comments? Granted, a few of the views might be search engines and blog-scrapers; but, still.... AI CHIHUAUA! ... *bzzt* *sigh* Okay. I'm good, just had to blow a minor fuse.

      Logged into one of my alternate/spare e-mail accounts, to find that it had been accessed from somewhere that is NOT my location. Which means, it was likely hacked. -- And now I gotta lotta password changes to do.

        Hehehe, thankfully I never did that, because I've always been cautious when it comes to passwords -- except in this one case, I didn't make it more complex than it was. Thankfully, the damage seems limited to that one Hotmail account, so... there's that.

      Yes I do have a lot of ideas. I have ideas for some development projects, many of which I have actually started projects as works-in-progress.
