2014, I’m feeling you, baby. You and I, we’re gonna have a thing. We’re going to make some beautiful music. There’s gonna be fireworks! Explosions! Fireworks and explosions!
(Wait, fireworks ARE explosions)
Anyway, it’s gonna be spectacular, trust me on this!
And blog readers, you’re in for a treat too! Stick around for exciting posts of the highest quality! Also, me referring to the abstract concept of a period of time as “baby”!
A new year is like a new woman, see. You have to seduce them! Turn on the charm, show them a little romance! I am completely babbling right now!
(Alright Gareth, let’s turn the excitement down just a notch.)
But seriously you guys, I’ve had a rest, a bit of fun in the sun, and I’m rearing to get back into the swing of things. I’ve got big plans for this year. Big Plans.
First and foremost, there’s System Crash to finish and release. And I’d like to get an expansion out by the end of the year, too. Maybe even two!
I’d also like start preproduction (a fancy word for planning, really) on two new games. Another CCG using the engine I built for SC (but a new ruleset and theme), and an entirely new game!
I want to do some world-building on my own original game settings, for fun and for the practice. Maybe to be used in games in the future, maybe not. But I want to play around a bit, just create. I’ll be posting what I come up with on the blog, so that should be fun, I think.
And I want to lose some weight. I know, I know, it’s a cliche. Start the new year, resolve to lead a healthier lifestyle, exercise, blah blah. But I do! I’ve gained 10 kgs since I left Derivco, most of it in the last year(stress led to bad habits), and I’d like to send the flab back where it came from.
And I want to practice my art! Maybe write some short stories! And, and, and…
So yeah. There’s a lot I want to do this year. I don’t know if 2014 is big enough for all of it. But one thing’s for sure, it’s gonna be a fun ride! Stay tuned!
