Hello again! Let’s start off this post the way I start nearly every other one: “It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything, sorry about that.” It’s a recurring theme.
Fall and Winter 2013 were very busy, and there were a lot of changes. I started a new job back in October as a team lead for 4 developers, so I’ve been getting used to that, the new office, new software and processes and people, and haven’t been doing much game development outside of that. It’s occupied a lot of my mental processes.
Looking back on 2013, my brain and my feelings want to classify it as a tough year, even though I learned quite a bit and ended up better off at the end of the year than the start. Tiff tells me that I was probably more stressed than I realized, and it showed. The fact that she could see it in my face and my actions means that it was worse than I thought, since I’m generally pretty good at keeping my emotions in. I’ve gotten a lot better in the past few weeks, and I’ve started looking further ahead and planning again, instead of just focusing on today and tomorrow. Living a day at a time really messes with my motivation and sense of well being.
But anyway, enough of that. I was just looking around today at one of my Oculus Rift demos, “Aurumancer”, and I found out that 2 completely unrelated Let’s Play videos had been made for it back in August. I didn’t even know those existed! One is in Spanish and the other German, and it was great to see those as I was thinking about making a video lately. So here they are for your viewing entertainment.

Maybe I should keep working on Aurumancer? Hmmm.
Also, I should probably put up a page about Let’s Plays and other videos that use our game imagery, since that’s been a thing with game developers and Youtube lately. In the meantime, anyone has permission to record and/or broadcast game content of any games, demos, or prototypes made by Perceptive Pumpkin Productions, LLC.
Here’s to a great year of gaming, and best of luck and success to all of you. Happy playing!
