So I figured I’d post a little update of sorts letting you know that I’ll be attending Assembly Summer 2016 next week. The event will be taking place at the Expo and Convention Center in Helsinki from August 4th to 7th. Personally, I’ll be at the event from the 4th to the 6th – that is, from Thursday to Saturday.
I do apologize for the rather short notice, but in any case, if you happen to see me there, by all means come and say hi!
With that, see you at Assembly!
I know I’ve been kind of silent about Nomad lately, stating that it’d be on hold indefinitely, but I figured I’d give you a small update regarding a change of plans as far as Nomad is concerned.
Said change of plans is that Nomad will be solely a written work project from now on. To be entirely honest, though, I have no real reason for deciding to scrap the concept album side of it. Either way, instead of being a concept album and a novel, Nomad will now be only a novel.
Speaking of Nomad, I have a few new ideas for the story, so it might come back from its hiatus soon enough.
But until then, stay tuned!
So since I rebooted a rather short-lived venture of mine recently-ish – said venture being known as The Mad Finnish Gamer Show (or The MFG Show for short) – I figured I’d write up a post mentioning it here.
The MFG Show is a series of videos in which I review games in a (hopefully) comedic fashion and slap Seals of Approval, Dread or Indecision onto them. As of yet, it’s not so much a serious new project as it’s just a little experiment on the side.
Earlier this year – specifically in January – I made two videos of the same series but discontinued it and deleted those videos only after something like a week. Now, about five months later, I’ve rejuvenated it and made two completely new videos! And a third one, but that’s a first impressions video, so…
Anyway, in comparison to the two videos I did previously, the style of the show is more or less the same. The expected upload schedule is also the same – new episode every two weeks on Fridays.
Now, for personal reasons, I’ll keep The MFG Show separate from the rest of my creative portfolio. It won’t have its own section on this website and I won’t make a post here whenever I upload a new episode of it. This post merely serves the purpose of a general announcement regarding – for now, at least – a “fun little side project”.
You can find the channel – along with the three videos already up – here:
It is with immense joy that I finally announce the release of MFG38’s Average Adventure REDUX!
Yeah, things took a little longer than expected (especially with the pace I was composing the OST at), but it’s finally out for you to enjoy. The game is downloadable on its GameJolt page here:
I also released the game’s full OST alongside it, so you can find that here:
Have a great rest of the week and enjoy.
Good news regarding MFG38’s Average Adventure REDUX, as it’s only a few steps away from completion! The OST is roughly 75% done, with only 4 tracks to go. Once I finish up the OST, all that’s left to do is playtesting.
I estimate that the full game should be out sometime early June. I’ll confirm the exact release date once the playtesting is done.
I hereby sadly announce that Nomad will be on hold indefinitely. After giving it some thought, I came to the conclusion that it’s best to finish up at least one project before deciding to continue on it.
For a brief lowdown of my current projects alongside Nomad, there’s Deliverance 2600, MFG38’s Average Adventure REDUX and a map for the Doom community project Nova III (which is almost finished). There’s also a new writing-based project which I started out just last night, but I’ll save the details about that for an undetermined future date.
I’m thinking I’ll at least finish up the Nova III map and MFG38’s Average Adventure REDUX before continuing on Nomad. With enough luck, getting them to completion won’t take too long.
And that’s that for today. Bye!
So this one wasn’t planned in the least, but I made and released a new song yesterday.
“Caress Me, Summer Wind” is an instrumental solo guitar ballad based around a riff I improvised the other day. You can listen to and download the song over here:
I also just now released a live performance video of sorts, which I recorded while tracking the song itself. A link to the video is below:
Enjoy and have a great rest of the week.
