Okay, here’s the scoop:
Nekochan received a injury to her eye last Thursday night, and since then things have been kind of crazy. The injury was pretty serious- it wasn’t until Sunday for us to have a day where we spent more time at home than at a hospital. Nekochan’s eye is going to weeks or maybe even months in recovery, and she requires full-time care at home, from me. The good news is that she isn’t in a lot of pain, other than some medicinal eyedrops that cause some stinging.
I’m leaving it to Nekochan to give you all the gory details, if she wants- she’s considering popping on to write a blog post in the fullness of time, because, well, let’s just say that the accident that caused the injury is pretty fantastic and singularly nerdy.
So, what does this mean for you? Well…
Harem Collector will be delayed. “Full-time care” means exactly that- I get only a handful of hours each day when I’m not either caring for Nekochan or cleaning the apartment. Those hours have, so far, been spent on stress management- ie, playing enough video games and enjoying enough internets that I don’t go crazy. Every day gets a little easier, but I probably won’t have significant time to sit down and do some game work until at least another week.
Sangreal will be delayed. When I announced that I was working on Sangreal again to the testing team, they seemed pretty excited. And honestly, I’m excited too, it will be nice to have made a game I can share with my family. But Sangreal didn’t have a firm release date before and it sure as hell won’t be getting one now.
Indecent Gaming Podcast will be affected, somehow. Since out producer/editor is now down for the count, I think editing duties will be passed on to Cypress_Z for the time being, but I’ve been to busy to get ahold of him. IF anyone sees him, please ask him to contact me. We are definitely not recording new episodes for now, until I can get my shit reasonably together.
GameDev Blog will be ongoing. I will give you guys updates as I get them. Also, I will update you as I get shit done on the game- funnily enough, because of the delay I might be putting up more than usual updates about the actual game just to prove that I’m not doing nothing.
Universal health care is awesome. Don’t worry about us, all our medical bills are paid for. I always appreciate more donations, but this isn’t a cry for help- we’ve got our costs covered courtesy of the Powers that Be. If you have the urge to send us some charity, why not pass it on to Doctors Without Borders because they could use it a lot more than us.
Sorry for all this, but this was a surprise to all of us, and I hate that it comes immediately after the last update that took three months. But this is the reality. Sorry.
