Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
That feel when you've been riding the Art Train all day and you're so amped up and it's 1:24am and you know you should get off the train and go to bed and you've stopped doing art but you're still thinking about art and looking at art because it's the ART TRAAAAAAIN and the Art Train don't stop
When cheap and safe instant cryostatis technology becomes a widely adopted reality, it will probably not be a good idea for someone to freeze themselves immediately after sending an email, having set the cryo-chamber to automatically wake them up upon the receiving a reply, in order to spare themselves the intervening suspense.
I can not promise I would not do exactly that, however.
Once again I find myself really wishing school had taught me less about making ridiculously premised but forcefully argued essays about English literature, and more about how to write friendly and professional correspondence. And by that, I mean expressing friendliness even if you've only got one brief sentence's worth of information to convey, without resorting to using emoticons or inappropriate exclamation points.
Also I wish I didn't have a weird habit of getting started right away with something and working hard and being ahead of the game and then almost almost almost being finished with something, and that's when my brain decides it's time I should stop working on it and lounge about like a fool, rather than just plowing on and finishing it right then and there.
Look here brain, when it comes to finishing off a painting or writing an email or reading that last chapter of a book, this tantric procrastination bullshit you've got going on doesn't really gain me anything.
Which doesn't make it as cheap as some of the other options listed, but even though I hate the subscription model as a matter of principle*, I also can't say that's some terrible or unreasonable price. I kinda assume that it's affordable enough that anyone who can afford a computer powerful enough to run it decently in the first place, isn't going to find being out $10 a month a huge burden.
*(I stuck with PS7 for 10 years before upgrading, so when I got PS6 I just bought the full non-subscription version because even at $700, at the rate I upgrade it'll come out cheaper in the long run).
