I Will Ruin Strawberries For You is still the game that I'm working on, as it seemed to be the one of my already-started projects that I was most passionate about.

My goal is to finish it in time for, at the latest, the Spring Thing 2010 comp. I'm publicly declaring this because I want to be held accountable for it. MAKE ME FINISH IT.

I spoke too soon. I Will Ruin Strawberries for You is on hold because I realised that I don't actually know how the middle of the story goes. Or the end for that matter.

However, I'm looking at starting a new, more thought out, project and applying the same criteria to it - i.e. pester me to finish it before Spring Thing 2010.

I'm currently working on a sequel to the ESS Chance: Reactor entry for Spring Ting. If I had to quantify, I would say it is roughly 10% or less done. Because I have a registered version of Adrift, I'm going to try to make this sequel a bit more fleshed out as opposed to the previous entry where I had program limitations.

Also still tossing around a few ideas for the IntroComp. :D

Well, I did release Vague and I am still working on Again and Again (although it isn't an ADRIFT game).
Currently working on "The Blank Wall" in ADRIFT 5 and "Again and Again" in Inform 7.

Currently working on three 'Adult games' at 'That other games group' ... (the naughty one). :blush:

The Witchfinder General. :O
The Headmaster. :oh-no:
A&M: Vegas Roadtrip. :cool:


But at the speed that I do things, I'll probably be dead before they get finished. :(

Sort of...

You play the Witchfinder General, and attempt to save a young woman from being burned at the stake for being a witch. :O

Nope... you are the head Witchfinder...

But after you find a 'suspect' you can then determine whether or not they are a witch... if they are then you burn them, if not then you save them.

You don't actually save witches, you save women wrongly accused of witchcraft, and burn the guilty ones.

No servant of evil would give you, say, 1000 gold pieces, because no servant of evil would fund the church in such a fashion... so such an act would be clear evidence of innocence. ;)

If an accused individual didn't have 1000 gold pieces though, they would have to think of some other way to prove they weren't a witch. :dancer:

1. Sounds like it might feel like Mr. Robot. Which, besides the pretty repetitive gameplay, I really enjoyed.

2. I lol'd @ 'directive'. thx

I'm curious about this one too. I mean obviously it wasn't finished for the OddComp, but I was hoping it would eventually be released as a full game without those restrictions.

It sounded like such an great story, I hope it wasn't abandoned!
