Excited about games

As a first-time author and beta tester, I just wanted to say, before the IF Games begin, that I’m so excited for the games coming out; I’ve tested some wonderful, wonderful games.

But I have to say that I’m especially excited that Brendan Hennessy is making a comeback. He wrote 4 games in 2013, including one of the funniest games of all time (You Will Select A Decision), and the great Bell Park Youth Detective, then disappeared. It looks like this game is a sequel to Youth Detective.

Is two years really a long time to “disappear” as far as releasing games? I have one game this year and it took about three months on and off, plus maybe another two to conceptualize.

Brendan is great, but I’m curious if he actually wrote all four games in 2013 or just released them all in 2013.

Plus devoting the time a game needs is hard on your social life. People around me don’t understand what the hell I’m doing when I’m in blitz mode writing.

Hey, that’s a great name! I actually even like that better than Comp! It evokes fun, and competition but ultimately fair-play - as in “The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not winning but taking part; the essential thing in life is not conquering but fighting well.”.

(Not today’s Olympics motto, ‘spend billions of dollars hosting it and don’t forget our sponsors’, grumble grumble)

Anyway, I too am really excited this year!! [emote]:D[/emote]
