Project Update

   0


Okay, remember my little game-in-development? It hasn't disappeared; if anything, it's gone along a little too well. It's become sufficiently huge in concept and design that it's essentially become its own universe. While I still want to make the game, it's become more and more obvious that what I've brainstormed here is really another comic book. Once I had the idea to start developing it as a webcomic, all of the disparate elements that troubled me previously seemed to lock into place.

As it stands now, I'm primarily working on the comic, while the game, tentatively titled "Dryad", contains the backstory for one of the main characters. I realize this sounds stupidly ambitious and unlikely to materialize in any form anytime soon, however the upside of having already done a nearly 200 page comic and counting is that I can reasonably flatter myself with thinking that I have some credibility when it comes to these things.

I'm not sure when "Dryad" will be playable-- I may need help to actually be able to complete it-- but the comic should actually be launched pretty soon, so those who've been following along with this little project can check that out. I want to actually get a reasonable stack of updates in the bank before I start it, something I wish I'd been smart enough to do with Sterling.

Anyway, next update will be the return of a favorite series in this blog...well, one of MY favorites, that is. I can't be expected to read your minds or anything-- not that I would if I could. That would just render the comments section redundant.

Links to all things Me:

My Personal Blog
Because I occasionally think about things other than games (I know-- for shame!)
Currently doing a 20-year history of Nine Inch Nails, because apparently I don't have enough projects that are HUGE TIME-SUCKING MONSTERS. Anyway, I try to keep anything that's videogames-related on Gaming Goddess, but there's a little bit of inevitable crossover.

My graphic novel, Sterling
There is some videogame-related stuff in Sterling, particularly Final Fantasy, but that's not really the focus. Meant for adults, so don't say I didn't warn you:).

My Twitter I'm very conscious of twitter-spamming, so I try to tweet only when I update one of my blogs or comics. Some people can get away with constantly tweeting charming little witticisms and it's neat, but I think if you have any interest in my twitter at all, it should be useful, never a nuisance.

About the name Gaming Goddess: No, I do not have delusions of grandeur! At least, not about games!
The origin of GG is this: My boyfriend's Mom is REALLY good at Space Invaders and games like that, leading me to dub her the "8-bit Goddess". We decided that 8-bit Goddess would be a really good name for the gaming blog that I wanted to start, except it would be false advertising since I personally suck at 8-bit games. So I changed it to the more general Gaming Goddess-- so I'm good at some type of games, I just don't have to specify which ones:).

Of course, if my boyfriend's awesome mom wants to start a blog, she can be the 8-bit Goddess, and I will bow to her in humble submission.

I have decided to change this section to only what is in my consoles AT THE MOMENT as opposed to every game I'm technically in the middle of. Accuracy FTW.

DS: ARMY OF MOOGLES, I mean, Final Fantasy VI
PS2: Odin Sphere
PSOne: Azure Dreams, Parasite Eve, Tomb Raider

Latest Fan Art:

Yeah, something new! Rydia's cool, people complain about the graphics in the new DS version of FFIV but I love the way the characters look...well, except for Rosa. The girl could use pants.

About Me:
I'm a starving artist/freelance writer/comic book artist/insert other vocation that makes very little money. If you're on Destructoid, chances are I am older than you. That kind of pisses me off.

Anyway, I'm working on some projects that I think might be of interest to some Dtoid readers, but I think I'll keep most of that stuff in my profile section, so the Cblogs won't be taken up with self-promotional posts from me. I'll add the info to my profile when I start my new comic and things like that.
