Crimson, if you can easily update BASS, by all means do so, I would be much oblieged. I'm in some pretty hard times at the moment and have dropped out of the AGS loop almost completely. No idea if, when, and how I could continue.

Thanks babar, but a gog account is useless for me, since I don't do any sort of electronic payments. Steam's the only provider of human-currency "point cards"...

I can't stress enough how awesome System Shock 2 is, though! Anyone who hasn't played it should give it a try and marvel at the atmosphere!

but if someone wants System Shock 2, mention it here, and if you're a real life AGSer, I'll link it to you!

I'd love to have Shodan on Steam! I'm also pretty sure I exist in true life :D

I'll be in Germany. In my tiny little cozy appartment. Eating nice food. And cuddling my cat. And ignoring anything fussball related.
Schalke doesn't play so it's not real fussball.

I am not sure. I have an idea but I can't decide if it fits the theme.

"A tidal wave heading towards a small island (where a volcano is aboot to erupt) forces Batman to save the world by batcrashing the moon into that rift-thing from Pacific Rim (also there are alien invaders down there who put up a fight)."

Batman DOES count as a natural disaster, right?

Thank you all for the congrats. It's been an odd day and I seriously doubt getting any older makes the slightest amount of sense. So here's the plan, we'll meet here next year and pretend this year has never happened, okay?

I wanted to get a cake for all of you but I only had money for a Milky Way. Shoving all those candles in reduced it to a pulpy smear of candy gunk and I won't offer you any. We'll do that next year, I'll do a Kickstarter in time.

I feel oddly compelled to play this :D

I have a gift of Camera Obscura- if someone wants a platformer with a twist*, I can send it via e-mail. Send me a note if interested (nod)

* The twist is that you move parts of the scenery by photographing it. Pretty Shyamalanistic, actually.

Thank you, CaptainD!

And yes! I absolutely succeeded in *some* way (laugh) 51 days is pretty good and I don't walk away empty-handed. I'm sure I can pick up the things I made and learned, and restart at some point. Just have to get rid of this RL stuff and, well, we always get an extra roll.

Reposted from blog:

O-kay... so, this did not exactly go as planned.

(For proper epicness, consider leaving this song running in the background.)

By the rules, I failed the 100 Days of Making Comics challenge. I started to run out of steam just a bit at around Day 48 or so and did not find both time and energy to put in the daily time just a bit later. I had hit an odd roadblock and could not crack it, and then stuf started piling up.
There's a bit more to it, but as far as catchy labels go, critical writer's block is probably the simplest explanation. I tried to get back into the swing but then another day went by with nothing much happening and then I lost it.

Of course, I could've just covered it up. I don't know exactly how many people are following this but none of you are very likely to come over and check what I really did at any given day (If you have plans to do so, bring some tuna, the cat loves it!)... but that would've been cheating and cheating is wrong (tm).

The bet was to work 30 minutes a day on a comic project. I have done this for 51 days, and then didn't, and thus the bet is off. I failed the challenge.

The End.

But... it doesn't really feel like losing, you know? It doesn't feel like failure. I went into this very unprepared, with very little background knowledge, and I came a good way. I wrote and designed and drew and broke a bit of new ground, and I had a good bit of fun, and a good bit of this good kind of frustration that doesn't get you down but fuels you up: You're facing a challenge and you know it'll be hard but you want to try and see if you can do it. I made it to the halfway mark at least, and given my track record of dropping projects, that's quite an achievement.

But the truth is that I need some time to sort out some stuff and that means that for now, I am closing the challenge. This is not a break, I'll stick to the rules and consider this first attempt at the 100 Days as over and done for, even if this might be a bit of false pride.

I have a folder full of scripts, notes, and scans. I have sketches and some nicely inked panels. There's LOOT here and I am proud of it. And it will come in handy. I've had this feeling that you need to enter such a challenge with a bit more of a plan, with a clearer outline, with a foundation that provides some extra fuel. This is what I take away from this challenge.

I'll attempt to run the gauntlet again, sometimes this year if possible, and then we shall see how far that run lasts. I'll leave this blog open and the next run will be chronicled here, too.

A great big thank you to everyone who checked in here, and I hope you found some entertainment. See you again, I hope :)

Someone give that man a balloon

Orion Burger. Everybody always forgets about Orion Burger!

(I'm not entirely sure but it seems to be... abandonware.)

This type of interface was most famously used by Legend- we actually used to call it the "Legend Interface".

Maybe it's the ghost realm? It sure is creepy that's for sure...

On the contrary! We have unicorns and rainbows here! And we float.
We all... float!

General Options allows you to set "Font designed for 640x480" under "Text Output"- this scales the font and also the outline. Not sure if it will help you at that high of a resolution, though. Apart from that there's really no way to change the outline, though you could create a custom font quite easily.

I like to lie on my front and put one arm down the side and touch the floor. Feel the coolness of the wall!

That sounds nice, but how does it compare to walking barefoot across a beach?

And another one: That little bit of milk you get when you're done with the cereal? It's delicious!

Undetected for that long? Guys, that's no planet, that's a ninja! Imagine the size of its throwing stars!
