12/12/12 update!

Ack, it’s December! In other words, it’s nearly the end of the year, and Dominique Pamplemousse still isn’t done yet. But it’s getting there!

So, here’s the thing. I’m now doing contract work in an addition to being an indie developer. I’m contributing content to a really cool interactive narrative project that I hope to talk more about in the future, when I’m allowed to. But suffice to say, it’s an excellent opportunity and I’m super excited to be working on it. I’m also trying to get some new things lined up for next year, which I’m also looking forward to. The downside, of course, is that these things have all been taking up more of my time, which I was initially focussing on Pamplemousse. Not all of my time, mind you. But definitely some. So it’s taking a little bit slower than I initially thought.

I have definitely made progress, though, and I promise you all that this game will get done in a reasonable time frame, if only because I really, really don’t like leaving things unfinished for years. So, here’s a slightly more detailed progress update:

Talking About Pamplemousse

Once again, it’s been a little while since I’ve posted about Dominique Pamplemousse, considering that most of the stuff I’m doing on the project these days has been of the “siddown and do yer werk” variety. However, I did recently find some time to chat with Dan Cox of Indie Game Radio about such assorted topics as Kickstarter vs. Indiegogo, adventure games and storytelling, The Neverhood, how I’m building this game, and how it would be funny to write a game about crowdfunding.

You can check out the interview here.
