Well, that last post was a doozy. A bit of a hard act to follow, eh?
Jokes aside, that last post really was partially to blame for my recent hiatus from posting here. After the fallout over the old-new Game Maker logo settled, the dust cleared, and (some of) the anger subsided, YoYo Games stated that they’d be open to suggestions for altering the new logo. So I helped produce a topic on the Game Maker Community to get everyone’s suggestions in one place, and we eventually ended up putting logos to vote and submitting them to YYG as the community’s official suggestions.
As many of you might already know, it worked out well, Sandy Duncan / YYG liked our ideas, and they ended up changing the logo. It was a great accomplishment for the GMC, and I am glad that we were all able to come together and set things right – but keeping it all organized left me quite exhausted. That, and I have had a lot of other work to do lately, helping a friend get a website off the ground, working on my own games / projects, doing the last Reflect Games game development competition of the year, fixing my laptop, shopping for the holidays, etc.
So the blog got left behind a bit. I did manage to sneak in and fix up some of the graphics on the theme. It’s that time where I’ve started wanting to change it (again, I know), but a quick refresh of the sloppy parts has satisfied my urge to change it for now.
Most of the things I mentioned above are over or winding down now though, so I’m hoping that after the holidays I’ll have more time to play with Game Maker, website development (yes, the ongoing Reflect Games website is still in the works!), and other related stuff. It’s just been a busy time.
Anyway, I’m not sure if I’ll be updating the blog again before the bulk of the holidays hit, so I just wanted to wish everyone out there a happy holiday and a good new year! I hope the end of 2009 turns out to be well for everyone!
Thanks for reading, and I will see you all in 2010!
