Hey, it has been a long time since I have said anything here! I have been working... absurdly hard. I have not been working on the Witch Game. That is my "current project" and I'll be going back to it soon, but I had a bit of a holiday interruption with another project, that is now just about done. Unfortunately, I can't share that project with you right now, but I can tell you that some version of it will be in your hands to play within the next couple of months.
I'm mainly just popping in to let you know that for the following week, I will be taking a nice long hearty vacation from all manner of work! I will still reply to emails, but I'm not going to do anything else that could be construed as work. I'm going to try very hard to truly throw work aside and actually let my brain rest for the first time in my life. I've taken vacations many times in the past years, but I don't know that I've ever done it seriously
. I'm burned out. Really badly. I find that I can only work for about half an hour before I start thinking "Hey, don't I deserve a WoW break yet?", and I think (I hope!) that is the result of having been in crunch mode for years straight. Every time I finish a project, I just launch the next one (or I launch it halfway through the previous...). It's time to really rest and see if my mental energy can recover, and maybe I can be excited about getting work done and not feel like I constantly want to take a break. I don't know, I think we shall see after this week!
See you all in 2012, when the world ends, and Diablo 3 comes out!
