I turned on my computer this morning only to be greeted by a black screen and strange clicking noises. Upon opening the case and listening a bit closer, I narrowed it down to the hard drive. Which was now making a noise highly reminiscent of the sound a record player needle would make if you dragged it across a record.
So yeah, my hard drive bricked itself. Hooray. Fortunately, I haven’t done an Indie Stone here, the game is backed up, both in the Cloud and on various portable hard drives I own. It’s recoverable, though I’m having to sit here and re-download all my tools and things. On my third-world internet connection, sigh.
Ah well. Could have been worse, eh?
On a lighter note, I’m desperate to play Dishonoured, but I’m using it as a dangling carrot for myself, I won’t allow myself to play until I reach my next milestone. That milestone being getting the game presentable for its first real public showing!
Exciting times! Stay tuned! 😉
