Noble readers! As you may have noticed, I haven’t posted in a little while. The reason for my temporary abandonment of this blog has to do with my current objectives. I started this blog for two reasons: To exercise my writing, and to discuss interesting games. As things stand at the moment, I very much wish to continue to practice my writing skills, as well as continue to discuss gaming, but I’m not sure if this blog is the adequate way to proceed. Throughout these first few months of my blog’s life, I’ve had to face the ever-looming question of what direction to follow. For example, I’ve thought about writing exclusively about independent games, or about writing for other blogs as a contributor rather than have my own. I’ve also fought with the question of whether to write a parallel blog in Spanish.
But then there’s the issue of my game design endeavors Game design is something I’ve always wanted to pursue, but only now have started to seriously consider. As things stand, maintaining this blog takes a considerable amount of time, which may be better spent if I focused it towards game design.
This all ties together with the most recent edition of IndieCade, which I was lucky enough to attend. I had a blast! I met a lot of developers, played many fascinating games, and attended a few eye-opening conferences. Keeping in line with the tone of this blog, I think it would be a great idea to write a few articles about some of the games I checked out at IndieCade. This is the immediate future of the blog. After that, I’m not sure what will happen. The only thing I know for sure is that I’ll be diving deeper and deeper into the art of playing and making games. So, be it as as an amateur writer or an indie developer, you will certainly see more of me.
For now, expect to see some posts coming up soon. Sorry for the downtime!
