Been a while since I've been able to sit down and program. Hello again Gad, my darling.

Pst... for you folk making fantasy-themed games, there's a VisuStella Atelier sale this month featuring 17 icon series (2 of which are new releases!) for 50% off! There's stuff like potions, plants, ingots, and rocks in this sale, and they even have a weapons collection as well.
I've used a few before to make a small crafting game, and so I can vouch for their quality. Why not check it out?

I've been a little silent over here because not gonna lie, my mental health has been a shoddily-built roller coaster and I want to keep things pretty gamedev focused. Life is... *gestures broadly at politics*

"Wow BaiYu, you've posted about 3 different projects! Is that all you're working on?"

I gaze out the window as I give a hollow laugh. There's so much more than just this. Such is the life of a freelance marketer.

Sorry Chipotle, you have to share the hallway with Boots this . We'll never forget the time we spent running around in circles only to bask in your glory once more.

Poor mental health -> poor physical health (personal) 

Even if major game companies manage to unionize, which I sincerely hope they do, that won't really affect the indies working right of their homes, will it? I feel so bad that I can only offer my own team contract work when I hear the horror stories from up top... but you know, I'm not even able to pay myself yet.

At the end of the day, Capitalism is the issue.

Poor mental health -> poor physical health (personal) 

Work-life balance has always been hard for me to maintain, especially when I was a younger gamedev. I would come home from my day job and work on games as "leisure," and at the time I told myself that was fun. And it was! But it was still work.

Nowadays I have such bad anxiety that manifests as nausea. I can barely keep up with freelance gamedev, even though it's technically my job now. The ongoing pandemic isn't helping me calm down either.

New job, new apartment, new roommates; Robin's life is certainly on the up and up! ... Or at least, that's what she's telling herself.

Here's a preview of one of the backgrounds drawn by Maricu for Fiendish Fiction's , Birds of Paradise.

Get you a man who's a brute who revels in the godless perversion of mortality, cleaving down honest men in war, then robbing their souls of rest to curse their survivors.

Concentration is low today but I'm doing what I can, and I have to remind myself that's enough.

Okay I've cleaned up a bit (that was fast) so I'm gonna look around a bit
