I need your help please. For personal reasons, specifically bereavement (i’ve lost one of my best friends due to cancer earlier this week) I am frankly not in a good place. 2021 has been challenging to say the least, first with my son and then my own health and now this. Honestly - the next couple of weeks are going to be very difficult and i’m conscious it coincides with the results of ParserComp.
I really feel like i’ve let my friend down. Maybe that’s daft, people are telling me it is, but I just feel like I could have done or said more, been more there for him especially over the last month. He went into hospice care (which sadly does tend to be a one-way road) during the COVID lockdown in the UK, so visiting was out, but I still feel like there’s more I could have done. Stupid things like I have no idea what he thought about the Mandalorian or WandaVision! Why did I never take the time to ask, it would have taken 2mins via WhatsApp. I think the funeral will be next week, his Mum will let me know. He was younger than me (i’m 42), we met at College and kept a good friendship since then.
Anyways… I need your help please. The response to ParserComp, the interest, the games, the voting, has been wonderful to see and what I don’t want to do is jeopardise this and end badly. The last thing I want to do, particularly in light of my feelings expressed above, is let people down - that would really impact me.
I would really appreciate it if someone could step in and take the reigns, allowing me to step away completely for the next few weeks (maybe months). There is the itch.io account (which is the crucial part), then the email account and the YouTube account. On August 1st the results will be in and just need posting, ideally with a bit of fanfare. I was originally planning to stream the results via YouTube, this isn’t necessary but was just my own intention.
If anyone is interested then please let me know, and thanks in advance.
