Altered Ancient Gears 2 Title Screen

Remember that ambitious JRPG I mentioned here just a while back?

It's out! It has as of the first of this month officially been released, free for all! You can get it not only for Windows but also for both Mac and Linux.

Click those links for instant downloads! The little hub here should be updated soon too, with these same links and some more info regarding DLC content. Among other things. Spoilers possible.

If you want to get into more of the lore or reach out to developer extraordinaire Sai feel free to check out the official AAG page here.

Or just dive into the game. There's an interactive pamphlet of sorts with backstory and character bios included there as well. Note that there may be typos, as the game is as expansive as it is and release came before total revision, but hopefully it's never to the point it distracts from the story.

There are now also three DLC packs included - for anyone who seeks stronger foes than the ones available within the main story - and more may get added if there's a demand for it. You should be able to just carry over your save file to the next update if so.

A walkthrough and guide for the game is currently in the works as well! Was planning on trying something similar myself but looking at this realistically Sai will probably provide one waaay before I do.

Last but not least I now have an official spot in the credits. :) Can't wait to play through and see that for myself as soon as time allows, but don't wait on me now! Go get it! Links above!

Feel free to share the game with friends and anyone you know that might enjoy it, and let Sai know if you appreciate it or want more.

I'll update this when I get to updating that hub. Till then: Enjoy.

UPD: Finally updated that hub. :) And apparently a sequel's in the works too now! More to come...

Found out about this way late, but it's somewhat seasonal so hopefully slightly relevant even after all this time. :)

You can see my alternative persona to the upper/middle/lower uttermost left, and the rest of the awesome Chutney gang. Go join the server if you haven't/if you want to/if you're a crazy person in a good kind of way! You'll find the link I'm sure.

Shout out @Phronemophobia!

And Merry Belated Christmas Again!

Happy 2021!

Happy 2021!

First post of last year here.

Last year pretty much started the same as this one. In a dark room - only a soft backlight lit as to not take away focus from the occasional outside fireworks - and me by the computer. Writing up last-minute resolutions, hoping to have time to reflect on a New Year and a New Me but not quite taking and/or having the time.

I felt like I wrote little last year, but it seems it'll be even less now.

I talked about a storm then, but the fireworks were so much stronger this time around. Who would have thought? 2020 marked the start of a new decade - an at the time hopeful new phase for humankind, but this year's all the more savage a showcase of fire and flame and sparkle seems to show that it's just a number after all. Even if it seemed awesome at the time we didn't really need the new as we do now.

I watched those decorative flares with a stupid grin on my face now. Growing wider and wider as more and more light struck the sky, soon lighting up a thick layer of smoke: the haze of aftermath.

I felt invigorated. All the more hopeful about how 2021 might turn out. All the more confident in my own abilities, and joyous that so many others seem to share the same sentiments. That so many of us really hope that this time it better be better. This time we start the decade that the last new year was supposed to.

I won't say 2020's been all bad - but it's been laden with uncertainty and unwanted tension, all too much stress, a couple breakdowns, the clarity of an ongoing midlife crisis I've been able to somewhat mask behind a veil of distractions during prior years, that this wave of isolation forced me to face. Thus my #1 resolution for the year. I know it'll sound vague to anyone who reads it, but it's vague for me too. I'm not sure how to transform; to get to where I need to be. Not sure where to start. Maybe with a little more reflection time I could've drawn up some pointers.

Maybe I will! And it seems this post is growing longer than I expected it to already and possibly uncomfortably introspective considering the air of festivity we should currently be trying to breath in - never mind that fosfor haze!

I guess I started this journey last year, but it's probably safe to say that things got in the way of the change I crave and one day maybe (I mean this year) will hail and brave. Slay my dragon. Let the tail prevail.

It hasn't been all bad! I sure posted more during 2020 than 2019 - albeit still not as much as I hoped to. I made some music I'm proud of. I managed to travel a bit despite all the roadblocks this 'rona thing tried to throw in my way. I've interacted with a bunch of cool people - both new and old acquaintances - mostly online unfortunately/fortunately/would-be-more-fortunately-if-I-was-interacting-a-bit-more-IRL-too, and I've come to all kinds of self-realizations that I am absolutely positive (not corona positive - don't worry - took a drive-through test last week) that a normal year would never have given me as ideal circumstances to find. For good or bad.

Whatever change this year might bring I plan to keep blogging though, keep on writing, and most importantly keep on making music.

You can find my subsequent yearly resolutions post here - from the other side of the yearly divide - for anyone who maybe stumbles upon this outside the main stream.

I hope you managed to get some good out of last year too; here's to the new! The one we've all been waiting for. So long. It's done.

So so long 2020! And Happy 2021.

And good night. I'll revise more tomorrow.

If you need some music to get into the mood of a new era I'd suggest listening to this tonight, and this tomorrow morning.
