it would look like a more detailed version of this http://s.pro-gmedia.com/videogamer/media/images/pub/large/super_meat_boy_the_game.jpg
i did, and the art is really cool.. but those arent ideas for items, the are just visual effects on isaac.
when i come up with an idea for an item the items effect is #1 then i design the item and art around it.
oh if i had the ability to totally refocus all my creative efforts from the start id have been musician.
if i had to start a new job from now… i guess id move into cartoons or back into comics.

i know its misleading because mainstream devs usually give you a release window when developing something.. that doesnt really work for indie devs… i have no clue when either game will be done, the goal is next year sometime but its impossible to gauge an exact month just yet.. or quarter really.
we are still early enough in dev that things could go longer than expected so theres no way to tell.
sadly no, around the end of dev jon asked me if i wanted to paint over the ingame sprites in the style of davids backgrounds, i thought it would take too long and i wouldnt do it much justice so i bowed out and david took over from there.
still playing spelunky mostly on vita now, lots of mtg (holiday cube is back online mid dec so ill be doing that a ton). ive also been playing through doom 2 again with the brutal doom mod on, and im looking forward to playing the new zelda on 3ds when i get it. oh im also playing the latest cod with danielle (online multiplayer only), its something we always do together this time of year.
i got sent a ps4 because i dev for it a few days before launch, but have yet to hook it up. theres nothing that interests me out for any next gen systems that i cant buy on pc just yet.. so, meh.
everyone is different but if you are prone to addiction being dependent on any substance that gives diminishing returns will always end badly.
i dont use drugs nor do i drink.. they just arent for me and i feel no real need to try them.
but i believe if you are using recreational drugs to help deal with depression and the like, you are just covering up the core issues with a bandage, and in doing so those issues can become a lot worse without you realizing it.
yes, like many many teenagers i had to deal with a large amount of depression growing up. the only way i was able to cope was to confide in my mother who also suffered from depression when she was young, simply talking to her and understanding that i wasnt alone made things much better. depression, especially in teens is way more common than youd think, and if things get unmanageable there is no shame in taking something to help you out. there can be an odd stigma on doctor perscribed drugs these days and its common for kids/adults to self medicate with other drugs because its somehow better/more acceptable? avoid this, its a downwards spiral. if you need help talk to someone and see a doctor if things dont ease up.
my claim to fame is anxiety! ive always been a nervous mess since i was a tiny kid. at 5 i used to give myself ulcers because i was constantly worrying about people close to me dying. it ebbs and flows over the years, at times ive not been able to leave the house for days, other times im fine. when things get to the point where i can deal, i take stuff to help.
Brains are stupid, but in time you learn how to wrangle them into doing what you want.
