The Hold-Up

I've wanted to fill you guys in more completely on the status of the Wyndia project for a number of months now, but I've just posted a couple pictures instead because the main message I wanted you to get is that Wyndia is proceeding, and good things are happening with it. I didn't want to worry you with other stuff that has been happening in my personal life.

I'm sorry there has been a large delay, but I don't want to write one of those mopey posts like I see indie projects doing all the time about unavoidable life situations, etc. This is the post that will come the closest to that kind of thing.

The short version is: My dad died and it needed some focus from me, and then I moved to a new place. By the time I returned to the Wyndia project, my eyes were fresh to the character art and I saw some major flaws that I wanted to fix. I felt the extremely cute, static character art with different facial expressions just wasn't the right thing for a project as cool as this, and I wanted to make something cooler.

Inspired by my favorite PS1 game, Threads of Fate (Dewprism), and one of my favorite anime properties, Popolocrois, I am now well into the process of updating my character models to take advantage of a new super-cool "low-poly" style. The poses and expressions that this style allows are also looking really nice. They make me sure that I made the right call by taking this update on.

I decided that since this is my personal, unpaid passion project, I should do what I need to do to make it something I'm really proud of, so I know I have the support I need from you guys for deciding to strip off the release date and get down to business on some seriously great improvements to the game.

Stay tuned.

Have You Had Your Dragon Snack?

I love Chronicle Games' new release, Dragon Snack

Dragon Snack for iOS and Android

Dragon Snack for iOS and Android

There's not too much too it -- catch the cheeseburgers and avoid all seafood (nothing against seafood).  Controls are simple; swipe left to run left. Swipe right to run right. Lift your finger to stop.

For some reason the fish, starfish, and lobsters explode so you know... Careful with that.

Currently, my personal best score is 54, but I know I can do better. Challenge me on Game Center or Google Play Games.
