So I’ve gained another year, which I guess if I were a tree means I’d have another ring inside me, which should I be spliced in half would show my years. But I don’t really want to test similarity, instead I’ll stick to the bags under my eyes or wrinkles in my brow.
But this got me thinking that I started this site about a year ago. Technically, I’d been using “SilentWisp” as a business name for projects for years, but this site itself came to be sometime in February. But, its officially didn’t come until I changed the name to something that made more sense and registered my first web domain!
So if WordPress’s records are right, “StudioWisp” reaches 1 year old on the 17th this month! So I guess I should do something special for it, because if not for this site pestering me in the background scene to keep doing work, moderating the spam que, and leaving its pages as a reminder for why I started work as a graphic designer, I’d probably be sitting in a cubical taking calls from people who’ve forgotten which AV leads plugs into what (which admittedly, I sometimes confuse myself on too).
Now, I’m not sure how to thank the site for these things, but I have an idea. In some cases, mostly on Facebook and Google+, I’ve posted under “StudioEntity” or something similar along those lines. Soooo, what I’m thinking of doing is giving that ‘entitiy’ I keep posting as a face! Which means tracking down some old folders I had when working out concepts for the site and seeing if that can give me any ideas, but you can expect it’ll probably have something to do with Wisp’s, or maybe I’ll go for the classic one-eyed floating fluffy green critter like thing?
I’m also planning to vamp up the theme on the site.
On an unrelated note: Tales of Thyilos is once again on the lookie for people who’d like to get a first hand chance to play the game before the next Beta is release. The current version is still up, and this time I’m almost %100 sure it can be played through without crashing at some point… Never-the-less the next release may crash, but only because I’ve deleted most everything in the default database in order to build it from scratch. That’s kinda why I’m hoping to find people who’d like to help and make sure it’s playable.
People who want to be an official tester get crediting for their help in the game and may get a sprites version of themselves made and put into a secret room I’m making in the game, OH SPOILER!! 😉 I’ll be leaving a trail of breadcrumbs in posts that’ll hint how to find that secret.
If you’d like to help, you can comment on this post here, or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
Now, it’s time for me to go, for there is a far-too-large-for-most-humans-to-eat-by-themselves-pizza with my name on it, and if birthday rituals exist, then I’m sure gorging on it is mandatory!
Till next time, have a great day (or night) everyone!
( ps: one more important caviar to mention, I set up a livestream account for Lucid Flame. Follow the link here to read more )
