He died as he lived: waiting for a Unity project to finish reimporting

Having to rely more and more on the WayBack Machine to keep links alive on a 13 year-old blog sucks

The Internet Archive, however, rules

All the cool kids are talking about that hot new F2P game on Steam...

Immediately distrust any designer claiming otherwise

It took me 15 years to finally realize that game design is actually entirely a soft skill

People are well are aware that politicians are self serving liars who are only looking out for their pocketbooks, except for matters of science. In such cases for some reason, then the politicians are more trustworthy than the experts 🤷‍♀️

I have come to the conclusion that I am a very financially cursed Game Designer: I seem competent and produce irreproachable works on par with the best standards of the moment, but only because of my presence that project or company is doomed from the moment it took me on.

I've been doing this for over 14 years now and have not had anything remotely similar as a successful project. I'm doing fine though, and have no intentions of changing careers.

Ergo, cursed.
