Just a quick update on my progress. I’ve taken a month off to build the framework of the game. This involves a lot of coding, a lot of wearing pyjamas and a lot of watching Mystery Science Theatre 3000 while I draw.
It’s really really terrific of my employers to give me the time off, but it’s definitely been a weird time. While it would be a dream to do this sort of thing full time, having this one month and then preparing to go back to work makes me feel like every minute is precious. As a result, my overdrive sessions have me up really late and night and getting up progressively later the next day. Right now I’m generally going to bed at 5 in the morning and waking up around 2. I will definitely have to readjust this before I go back to work.
This all reminds me of a guy I had a serious crush on in my first year university. During his time working as a restock boy at the beer store, he confided in me that he became completely nocturnal, rising at night and sleeping all day. This seemed so cool and glamorous to me back then. Now here I am, living the dream.
