I have this habit of starting up projects, talking about them and posting their progress on Twitter or something, then being silent about them for a while. I don’t want anyone to think that I’m just starting up shit and not finishing it via an ADD-fueled handicap, so I’m doing a little “shit I’m doing” post to let you all know what’s up.
Shadowrun Campaign (unnamed for now)
I’ve wanted to do something for Shadowrun because
- The games are fucking great
- I found out that William Gibson, more or less the father of Cyberpunk, is as good at writing as he is at being a total dumbass online complaining about millennials, Bernie Sanders, and trans people, and so I wanted to do my part in bringing Cyberpunk back to the marginalized.
The problem with working with the Shadowrun Content Generator is that I have to simultaneously learn how the thing works while trying to work within its limitations. Like Sword of Moonlight, the documentation is either non-existent or completely unhelpful. This has obviously put a damper on getting things done.
I want to do a digital zine because I have not yet completed my journey into becoming a complete and total pretentious trans stereotype. Got a lot of shit I want get off my chest, but in a format that (conceivably) a lot of people will see.
More Twine Shit
People really liked Emergence and NIGHTMARE JOURNAL. Right now, I’m just scribbling a few notes here and there, to see if I can make them into a complete thing.
DOOM is like one of the greatest games ever, and I want to make something in it. A level, a small mod, anything really. This has been pretty low priority though, while I work on all these other things, in addition to the art and stuff I make every week.
I’ve also wanted to have a reason to update this blog more often, and I thought that doing what I used to do with Hakuna Matata, but with the game Noctis (or, with my recent purchase of a PS4, No Man’s Sky could also work) would be a good idea. Not really sure how I want to tackle it, though. Do I want to post some screencaps and say, “here’s some shit I found,” or do I want to put together an actual narrative, and make it its own story?
