I'm living the dream...

I'm making games and kicking ass, that's right, I'm living the dream the hard way.

I'm coming up on the end of Moon Base development and it's a whole lot less exciting than I thought it would be. The game has turned out far better than I had ever imagined or planned, more features, better graphics, actual sound effects... yeah.

Anyway, no screen shots today, I'm beyond that now because the graphics aren't changing anymore.

Stop trying to hit me and hit me.

There comes a day in every mans life when he has to hit someone as hard as he can, my advice to you is that you choose when that day comes.

Here is a video of the new Moon Base main menu.

You have the look of a man who accepts what he sees because he expects to wake up.

I came down with a dirty contagious disease which affects the eyes, but I'm back on the wagon and i'm moving faster than ever! I made around fifty procedural moon textures over the last few days and finally I decided upon one. Embrace the new Moon Base terrain!

Retard Steve says, "consensus!"

The best part about working alone is that I get to make all the decisions, there's never a dissenting opinion, never a debate, never any right or wrong, only right - except for when Retard Steve is involved, because right and wrong doesn't matter anymore, because a consensus is majority rule. It sounds like politics doesn't it?

If you live in a Democracy your government is run by a couple really smart people finding consensus with a large selection of dishonest retards. It was planning to write a comparative study of Games by Committee and Government by Democracy, but I'm hungry, so I'm going to go eat some discount Chinese food and draw some sketches for my new game.

I finished up of Moonbase's buildings and I'm working on improving the terrain for the game. Here is today's sample. I'm also taking this opportunity to announce that Moonbase consists of 13 exciting missions!

Retard Steve says, "Drink to the life giving animals!"

Last night was an exciting night for me, I had many new dreams.

My first dream was about the unification of the alcohol section and the frozen food section at super market. Where the alcohol and ice cream sections overlapped I discovered boozecream, the ice cream that gets you drunk. Now everyone including you and me, not just fat girls, can feel better by eating an entire carton of ice cream.

In my second dream I was a ninja, a ninja sent fourth to liberate the vacant homes of America from the squatter plague. I would enter a vacant home and lay in the dark waiting, I would wait for as long as it took for a squatter to enter the home, when the waiting ended, I would destroy the squatter using my Ninja shotgun. I literally destroyed the squatters since immortals can't be killed, I separated their bodies into countless pieces which I distributed across the land so that the squatters could never reassemble themselves and occupy another vacant home.

My third dream I was the CEO of a huge game development company, seriously massive, larger than any game development company on earth. I wore a sweet suit similar to the one worn by Sean Connery in Highlander II: The Quickening. The dream was united with a reoccurring theme of my life, I have always imagined how great it would be to have a work force made of clones of me, but these clones would have a better work ethic and sleep less than me. The night dream wasn't as great as my day dream, I only had one clone and he was retarded, but he looked exactly like me and he had a sweet suit exactly the same as mine. My clones clothes and fantastic good looks didn't really make up for him being retarded, but according to my dream ethics retarded Steve should be treated exactly as I would treat a non-retarded Steve clone. In my dream I introduced my new CO-CEO to my existing work force made up of every stripe of nerd and alcoholic womanizer. Retard Steve and I stood together in our matching suits and I instructed everyone to do exactly as Retard Steve says.

In my fourth dream I was a savage hunter conquering the forested wilderness of precolonial North America. It was a delightful dream, I taught myself to make weapons like spears, bows and arrows and small metal daggers, primitive weapons proved incredibly complex, before this dream I had never appreciated the difficulties involved in making the most basic of weapons. As the dream progressed I initiated an animist cult and accumulated a large following of co-believers. We worshiped the animal spirits of the female Deer, the female Skunk, the female Possum, the female Birds... you get the idea... At my command, the cult built a massive stone temple devoted to the female spirits of the animal kingdom, inside of the cult temple we built a giant statue of me, made of natures glue and the ground up bones of the female animals we feasted upon, the statue represented the united spirits of the animals which lost their lives to give us life. Whenever we weren't eating or sleeping, we drank various animal derived liquors and sang glorious songs to commemorate the life giving animals.

Those are all the dreams I can remember from last night.

Today I spent working on Moon Base 3D, NinjaPants says the first 95% of game development is making the game and the second 95% of game development is finishing the game, and I believe it. I finished mapping out the level framework and I added two new buildable structures.

I was planning to post a family portrait of the games buildings today, but I have one more planned building to go, so the family portrait will have to wait tell tomorrow. As for tonight, I hope to be visited again by more inspirational maniac versions of myself.
