As if procrastination wasn't bad enough on its own...

I'm struggling to even create content for this blog, whose purpose is to motivate me. Fuck.

I also have no motivation to do anything productive at all. I've been playing League of Legends and revising a lot lately but sleep deprivation is inhibiting my ability to do both.

However, I did play Black Ice which I thought was a particularly notable game, simply for the developer's sake. I played the demo(yes, the game has a demo!) and it isn't too complicated, it's a procedurally generated open-world area, within which are shapes which generate small arenas for the player to fight off enemies for a given number of seconds.

If you haven't played it, I would recommend it. Plus, the demo is free and about 100MB so you don't have much to lose.

The developer has been actively developing this game for about 2 years now. Additionally, it's clear that fantastic art design is not his forte and he has gone the route of colourful, simplistic wire-frame effects, which in the context of this game are quite enjoyable.

He's an active member of his own game's community with, according to his profile, 100 hours playing his own game, indicating that he's genuinely invested and both enjoys his game and wants it to be the best it can be.

In any case, I hope you enjoyed my brief recommendation of Black Ice, in a somewhat futile attempt to stop this blog from becoming about my own procrastination and inability to stick to a project.

If you have done, thanks for reading.
