This is a weekly recap of what has been going on in my professional life. It’s to keep track of what I’m up to and to give you a peek at what it’s like being an independent creator.
Not a lot happened in week 57. I think we were mostly recovering from the weird badness the week before. Waking up to a twitter stream filled with #welovegamedevs tweets was very nice. I set up a Patreon and sent out some emails for research and new business opportunities, but other than that it wasn’t super productive.
On Saturday Swordfish and Friend, a record store and art shop started by some friends of mine, opened its doors in downtown Utrecht. My girlfriend has some of her paintings up for sale there, I am super proud.
Last week I was a bit of a mix of all kinds of things. I redesigned the menus in Black Feather Forest, upgraded Adventure Creator to version 1.38 and dealt with the bugs resulting from that, wrote a bit about a very old adventure game I used to work on, set up an itch.io storefront and uploaded 15 Minutes to it, got some Kickstarter advice from Sam Farmer and continued to get worked up over #GamerGate.
On saturday I spent all day in town with my girlfriend, away from the internet. That was very nice.
Next week: a high-profile business offer!?
