I rescued the princess!

The Quest is usually a tag I use to talk about my personal attempt to break into the game development world.  Today’s post isn’t about that but it has been over a month since I last post here, and I wanted to explain my absence from the site.  As that reason was personal, I’m tagging this as a part of the Quest.

I’ve been grinding you see.

No, not grinding for gear in Diablo 3 or levels in some other game.  Rather, I’ve been sneaking around my girlfriend getting her a ring made; grinding cash into diamonds.  Last weekend, I proposed and she said yes.  And there was much rejoicing!  Many who read this blog regularly already heard that news, but I felt everyone else should know too.

But, wedding planning aside, I’m back now and I have a few irons in the fire that I think will be fairly interesting once I pull them out.  Early next week I plan to post a fairly long piece about storytelling and simulation.  Hopefully shortly after that, I’ll have a piece about social media’s influence on game development (which will have math!).   And to top it all off, my fiancee and I will be going to ComicCon next week.  If I find out anything cool, interesting, or otherwise awesome, that will be included in an update once I get back.

So thanks for your patience and please check back regularly.

    Congrats! I considered jokingly posting the “Game Over” t-shirt, but I won’t for fear of being taken seriously. I’ve been married now for almost 7 months, and it’s been nothing but bliss. I wish you and yours the same. 🙂
