Hello everyone this is Aval0nX with the Cubtober 2012 report
here to answer some of your questions for clarification, I'll try to keep this short.
Many people have been asking through PM about when the next update to BSC will be.
simply put there's no real date for it really, why? well Grose is a working man, yours truly is too.
Avian is finishing his college studies, and I was very clear in saying that I wasn't going to take
from their personal time for making the game, and they all agreed, have I been working on the
art, yes, when is it going to be done? keep following the sunday art streams and you'll see, the
people who follow the Sunday streams (12:00pm - 1:00pm -4:00 GMT) will know that I always try
to get some work on the game art done in the form of sprite refurbishing and overall story boarding.
someone had the gal to accuse of lying to everyone when I said that the "art would be finished in a month's time" well that's not true I was referring that I'd begin work on the art in that time, the art (for those who have been following the streams) takes a long time, I can sketch something in minutes, but inking and coloring and adding shading can take days, the Amy sprite alone took a week to make.
When will the complete game be out? will it be out before Christmas?
those questions I'm not going to answer, because I'm tired of people expecting me to be all "professional game developer with this thing" which is not what I plan to do for this game or for any future incarnations of it. If you don't like the way I deal with the development of the game, or think I'm an unprofessional prick, well fuck you, I don't care, I work as a College Professor, making hard (making and grading tests, ughh) but decent money to get by. I'm not a game developer or professional artists, how many times to I have to say that art and making BSC is a hobby work not my real work. It's not like I made a kickstarter and established firm parameters on the project, I gave dates of when I wanted to update, and clearly that didn't work, fine I'm not a professional projects manager I don't do that for a living.
A lot of the hater/fags (not trolls mind you, they're two different breeds of idiots out there) that have been endlessly treating me like crap all the time use the excuse of me asking for donations, I did it, and I don't regret it, frankly they've helped me and Avian survive truly hard times and give me the motivation to continue working on both BSC and being Aval0nX and posting stuff online, I could easily just go back to doing this for my own personal enjoyment, and simply flip off everyone and disappear, like some other artists do, or I could just be the total dick artist and cull the whole gallery and game and just work on commissions like some artists do. The thing is I'm not going to do any of that, I enjoy doing what I do, and the occasional donation reminds me that there are people who support, not just the game, but my art and want Aval0nX to stay online and sharing his stuff with everyone.
In the end, when is the next update? -> when there's enough art to be uploaded into it to make the update significant
when will the art be done? -> follow the Sunday streams and find out, you can also interview or ask questions live in the chat too, tough if you get stupid, LostR will ban the fuck out of you.
why do you keep posting rants like these since they're troll bait? -> simple, the ensuring shitstorm of angry trolls and hater/fags is amusing to see, gives me something to point at the screen and laugh at.
why are you so mean? -> I tried being the nice guy, but the internet will do this to you, you can't be nice to anyone or they'll, no.1 treat you like crap, no.2 try to take advantage of you.
are you purposely not working on the game to milk donations like the hater/fags accuse you? -> no, I stopped receiving them a long time ago due to the fact that there hasn't been an update since early this year, and I understand, I've been getting an occasional one from time to time and I'm truly grateful to everyone who helps and supports the cause.
why post this journal rant, if you know it will bring trolls and hater/fags? -> simple because if I don't people will go "Aval0nX has disappeared for months again" or "Aval0nX is not giving us update status" or "Aval0n is with his 'I've got IRL issues' excuse" etc.
welp I think this should be enough to start a nice little ember...
have fun in the comments (^ w ^)/)
