Hey Zach, what gives! You got a brand-new, fully functional tablet on your hands! Why haven't you been posting anything lately as a result?

Well, I WOULD blame schoolwork, but that's not quite the case. Truthfully, I've been somewhat distracted by another hobby/aspiration/field-in-which-I-am-minoring-in of mine: game design. I could go on and rant about how I loved games growing up in a household with classic systems of all kinds, and how I've become somewhat fickle about games as of late, and how countless visits to gaming forums, level guide websites, and development blogs have helped to shape my perspective on the whole shebang, but I don't feel the need to be wordy. I've been sitting down for a week or so now putting together game ideas mostly subconsciously, and have been fighting to get them down on [the pages of my new Game Dev Binder I made from cheap office supplies and old] paper.

Mostly I've been trying to decide on an easy enough first project - problem is I have this habit of blowing up concepts to much bigger performance, or the concepts I do have tend to get further down the complexity line. Sure, with the event sheets of dev programs like Construct and such the aspect of coding has been simplified for numb-nuts like me, but the logic and planning behind it is still a doozy! But I just can't help it, I like the stuff I make to have a personal touch, and to be something people would love to come back to. I can't help it man, it's chronic! I blame you for this, Edmund McMillen! Curse yoooooou!

Anyway, as such Geckoro's stuff and all that had been halted for the time being while I try to get my get my bearings around this blasted thing - it can be an enjoyable process, but also an arduous, stressful one as well, especially as a one-man effort. (because GaMeRs is a bit busy with other things for the time being). So, maybe if I'm productive you'll see more stuff from me soon.

Heyo', I'm Zach and I like cartoons, video games, giant monster movies and interesting things in general. I'm currently a student at Southern Illinois University Carbondale planning to Major in Animation and Digital Media, and hope to do....something in animation, or comics. Whatever works. I always have aspired to do independent work however. I'm basically a cauldron of different ideas, but I'm sometimes too lazy to put them on paper. Or busy. Or doubtful. I'm sure I'll kick it eventually.
