UPDATE: What's happening?!

So you might have noticed that I haven't uploaded a video in like a thousand years, so here I am, setting the record straight. While I'm at it, I'll explain a bit about why I haven't since- well, I'll get to it in the video.

In my last video, I supposedly started a new long-term project even though it had only been like a week since my last one. Long story short, it wasn't going anywhere and now it's dead. I've stolen some of the code for another thing I'm doing but I think I'll get to that in future.

There were some technical reasons why I shut it down - using as many lights as I would have liked would have probably involved re-working Godot's lighting engine somehow since I was getting some serious performance hits where there really shouldn't have been. I was originally going to get a friend to help me with the art assets, named They-huh, They-he, thigh...?

Dante would have helped me with my art assets if I could have gotten a functioning build of the game, a requirement which is pretty fair enough. I didn't end up getting to a functioning build, I only got in as far as barely creating a basic enemy class before getting ill for like a week, and after I recovered I realized that it wouldn't be feasible to continue working on it.

I will interpret this one as the gamedev equivalent to a rebound relationship. It didn't last long and basically only softened the blow from working on a project to not working on a project.

In any case, I suppose I'm between projects again right now. I don't know when I'll get to work on another one and I don't know what it'll be, but it'll be something and it'll be coming eventually.

For now I should really focus on schoolwork- I know that's unlikely to happen, but in the event that I really don't upload another video for like nearly three weeks again, I want you to think that's what I'm doing, not playing Enter the Gungeon or Warframe or whatever the fuck else I find to spend huge amounts of time on.

I'm aware this is a particularly short video but I really don't have much to say at this time, being a gamedev channel with no gamedev happening! Thanks for watching and stay tuned for another video eventually. I guess that's what you're hoping for now. Remember when I'd say "stay tuned for another video on my project, Mass O' Kyzt?"

God, I miss those days.
