What Have I Been up to!?

DESTRUCTOID!! I'm SO sorry that I disappeared from the face of the Earth... I promise that it has been for good reasons. How do I say this? I've been dealing with a lot of personal issues lately. Over the past few months, I've cut myself off from most of the world. I was pretty much content to lock myself in my dorm room and just sleep, pretending that I was never going to have to deal with my mother's second divorce, my relationship with my father and brothers, the fact that I'm failing college atm, mounds of backed up assignments and homework, my troubles with my girlfriend, and my creative slump. Sorry if I'm being too open, but I'm just tired of holding all that in.

Anyway, due to to school, I probably won't be able to resume posting on a regular basis for another couple of weeks. However, when the summer rolls around, I'll have plenty of free time. I promise that I haven't forgotten any of you who read and comment on my posts and I've already got a new Sound Test blog ready to post. So! I'm sorry for my selfishness and I can't wait to get back to writing!

In the mean time, I've been working on a couple of things. Here they are!

1. A Webcomic!

It's still in it's early phases, but it's coming along nicely. It'll have an on-going story and be very action-heavy. Like... To a ridiculous degree. It's based on a terrible story that was written by myself and several friends in Jr. High School. I'm still trying to work several things out, but know that it will parody American Otaku culture as well as the kind of Fan Fiction that a 13 year old would write.

Imagine something that tells a decent story that also parodies itself and it's own origins in the process. Since the story was written when I was younger, I ripped off everything from Cowboy Bebop to Dragon Ball Z. None of that seemed lame to me at the time, but these days it most certainly does. What this comic will do is sometimes parody the fact that it was written by a 13 year old ripping off other anime. I think it'll be good, but it won't take itself too seriously. It's a bit hard to explain.

Here's some VERY early concept stuff.









2. Indie Games!

While it's still too early to show anything, I've been toying with ideas for a few different indie games. I will say that one is an RPG entitled "Driftwood" that takes place on an island. The other is a platformer that is untitled at the moment. We'll see how they come along after a while, I may move development over to the iPhone, but we'll see.

So! There you have it, that's what I've been up to lately. Feeling sorry for myself and conceptualizing. Anyway, I thought I would just update so that noone would think I was dead or something.
