Written Monday, May 5th while traveling from SEA to LAX...
I’m sitting here on a Vigin America flight from Seattle to LA listening to Cherry Blossom Girl by Air and Halcyon And On And On thru Virgin’s new seat back entertainment center, Red. My lovely Noelle let me use her TINY Sony Vaio for my trip so I could do some work and not lug around one of my larger Ltops. A few members of my team are traveling off to do some focus testing and see what peeps think of our work on Project Banana. I’ve only been at Snowblind for a little over two months, but already have a bunch to show for my time…and now I get to see what people think of it…always the exciting part, if you ask me.
You know, I am still really disappointed that Gods and Heroes will never be coming out, because I was anxiously awaiting being able to see people run around in a world I helped create. My plan was to run around and play with people and not have them know I was a developer…so I could get honest feedback on my work. I equate it to an artist walking around in disguise at his or her own gallery showing.
While I did hear the rumor that the original owners of Perpetual might try to buy the content and server tech to try to finish it, I don’t think it’s wise to beat a dead horse. If an idea or a concept struggles to get out the door (or out of your head), well then maybe it just wasn’t meant to be.
