Vaporware? [UPDATE: Sort of.]

I sent the first part of the game I’m writing to the guy who commissioned it. However I haven’t heard back from him, even after sending a follow-up email a while later. So I’m thinking maybe he’s abandoned or changed his idea.

That’s a shame, but at least I got some money in advance, and I can use some of the ideas in my Gigacrawler game.

UPDATE: The guy just got in touch with me, and told me ‘the business model has changed’–it seems like maybe he’s writing the content himself. Anyway I’m surplus to requirements as suspected 🙁

I’m still here.

I thought I hadn’t posted for a couple of weeks. Turns out it’s more like a month.

Anyway I haven’t been idle in that time.

I was hoping to have Ideas and Inspiration… volume 2 at least in editing, if not finished, by now. However the person who promised to edit it for me has said they can’t. So the whole thing’s been pushed back at least three months.

I finished the first part of the game I’m working on, and sent it off to the guy who hired me. I’m waiting on his feedback.

The latest part of My Name Is John Carter is scheduled to be published reasonably soon.

I’m not going to properly start the Gigacrawler game (which will be pen-and-paper) until I finish the (computer) game above. However I have 30,000 words of a previous unfinished game which will serve as a first draft.

Similarly, I’m probably not going to start Anarchist Prince of Mars (Pride and Prejudice and Zombies-like mashup novel) until I have at least one current project finished.

Every time I get on the net…

There’s an ad telling me that German secret societies made contact with Nordic-looking beings living inside the hollow Earth.

Uh, if that was true I think the Reptilians would know about it.

(filed in ‘publishing’ because I assume it’s a target ad based on the stuff I’ve been downloading for Ideas and Inspiration… vol. 2)
