Zlythy - My Notgame

I've made a decision about this game project. Because of delays (with a potential coder), and my own inability to code anything, I've decided to make my project a full-blown notgame. It was barely a game to begin with. On reflection, to a certain extent, I believe I was attempting to candy coat it - to make it more "gamey" and less artsy.

As an artist and musician, I've always felt like the three were separate, which was always a frustration for me. Zlythy will allow me to combine all three. It will be my next project and will include my music and video work as well.

It looks like I'm on my own again. The coder got a regular job. It looks a bit like I suspended development for two months for nothing. I'll be returning to Blender as that's what I know and it's cross platform.

I'm going to get back to it as soon as I finish up with a couple other projects I'm working on. Though it could be a while as me and my wife are moving to the UK soon and I'll probably be working a part-time job.

Shadowjack: The Industrial Years, 1997 - 2005

While my game development has slowed down, I've been keeping busy with other projects. Here's another cross-post from my music blog:

UPDATE: As I was digging through all my CD backups (8 years worth) I noticed that the actual dates on the files didn't line up with my recollections of the dates. These songs were actually recorded over a period of 8 years. In fact, the last four songs were all recorded in 2005. There is some overlap with one of the songs on The Fall of Man, which was originally demoed in 2005 but that was around when the direction in my music started to turn back to Doom/Stoner/Metal.Those four songs represent the last spurt of Industrial that was left in me at the time. Plus, the new title is the first I came up with in the first place. :)

10 songs, 10 years 8 years (I'm not so good with dates, what can I say) of Industrial. Coming soon.

01. It's Called Easy
02. Angel
03. Lucky Number
04. Elation
05. Worth
06. Bleed
07. Keep It Together
08. Insect Boy
09. You Can't Hide From The Sky
10. Broken World

New Shadowjack Song!

This was previously available as a not-so-great demo on MySpace. You may also notice the all new artwork! It's from a painting I did back in 2006. I tried several times to design artwork for the album and was unhappy with it every single time. I was going through my old art and landed on this piece I painted called Last Denizen of a Dying World. It was perfect - not to literal, not to abstract but still got the concepts and general feel of the music across.
