First thing you'll probably notice is a new layout for the site. The other one was just overwhelming so I wanted to make it simple. The next thing you'll notice is the "Interesting Articles." I spend a lot of time reading random articles around the web and I'm afraid that someday they may disappear over time so I decided to create a new section. Besides, I'd like to share them :)
Work on Tutelary is still going on and I'm working on a video for the kickstarter. I have also been having a friend test the game out and let me know what to change/fix, since the kickstarter will offer the option of the game in alpha stage. I want to make sure the core mechanics of the game work.
I have officially started writing the new album. I have one song done and another in progress with several core ideas in my head for future songs. I am going to take my time writing this album and make sure every song is something I can be proud of. I will feature other songs on the album I have already recorded and finished producing, but never included in an album. I will also re-mix and re-master my first (and only) album and attach them to this album as well. Again, I'm very proud of my first album, but a lot of people didn't really like the recording (which was intentional). I will make sure their sound is more "modern." I am approaching this album from a much different style, but it's still very much black metal. If I could compare it to anything I would say imagine Enslaved and Carpathian Forest having a baby.
I've been on vacation lately and worked on Tutelary: The Adventures of Freyr a little more. I've made A LOT of progress. A large setback for me was getting the floating city of Meiji working properly. I also added a new skill for Freyr. I'm debating on getting a Kickstarter going. I would like someone to come in and write all the music and have another person remake all the graphics. I'll think about it the next couple of weeks. If I do get something going then I'd set a goal at $1,000. $800 for the graphics and music, and another $200 on some other licenses that I really need. If it goes any higher than that then I'd set stretch goals, but I have no idea what since I doubt this will even make it to $1,000.
Regarding music: I haven't really written anything lately. I was working on two albums of different styles and put a hold on both. I can't seem to complete any songs and the songs I complete I'm not satisfied with. Perfectionism at its best.
I moved some stuff that was on my former philosophy blog over to this site. Specifically, I brought over my dreams and visions sections, which you can view on the left. To start off the launch, I wrote a new dream I had. You can read it here.
