Caution + Thanks for the fanart!

Thanks for the awesome fanart. It got me working a bit now, hopefully I'll have it all fleshed out by the weekend.

There's one potential letdown about the game that I should probably address; it is very effects ridden. So if you've had problems getting games like Norrland running on your setup, you might have to forget about this game. When I showed it at the Killscreen Party during GDC the computer threw errors every once in a while when the graphics memory had been all used up. I'm not sure if there's a good way of fixing this...

The game's using multiple surfaces for various effects and I've even managed to get some slight pixel shaders in here. It looks completely trashy and I love it, hopefully it won't make people freak out.

I think I need some motivation...

Sorry for the lack of output these days. I've been feeling some pressure to actually make worthwhile games and generally not been having ideas popping into my head as frequently as I've had earlier.

I really want to finish the new mondo game as it is very close to completion, but I keep losing momentum.

Maybe if I see that there still is interest I'd get my shit together and plow through the last 10% of the game. I actually really like what I have so far, although it's a step away from previous installations. I hope it won't disappoint fans of the earlier games.

So, if you can't wait to play the game, please post some fanart and I'll try to feed off of that to get the game done!
