SO ABOUT MYSTERY MAN ZERO...

Wow, it's been over a year since my last update. That isn't very good, is it?

Every so often, I'll get an email or message from someone asking me what's going on with Mystery Man Zero. I never saw myself using RPG Maker again, so it was really painful telling people that the game will probably never get finished. But sometime last week, it crossed my mind, and with RPG Maker 2003 finally having a legal version  released forever ago, I decided to give MMZ another go and actually finish it this time.

I bought the program a couple of days ago and spent most of my time with it re-importing my resources to the "new" project. One by one. If it sounds agonizing, let me tell you, it was.

I got all that done, so now all that's left is to copy the maps over from the old version to the new one. I thought I could copy one map and then all of the maps under that 'family' would be copied too, but noooooo, I have to copy each map individually. Fun, fun, fun.

But I shouldn't complain. Even after all these years, people still care about this game, so it really means a lot. My plan is to write out the plot by hand and then transfer it to the game. I've been pretty good with handwriting stories first, so I'm hoping this will motivate me to finally finish this. If the story is finished at least, I can chip away at the other stuff until everything is done.

I'm going to throw in so many secrets and optional content, as a way of thanking people for bugging me about this for so long.

Hang in there y'all. A full-game will be released in 2018 AT THE LATEST, so help me God.

I GOT A FILM MADE!!!!

If I can't say I did anything else in my life, at least I can say I got a film made. :)

Here are some things about it, presented in a mock-interview.


What's your film called?

Evoke.

What's it about?

Two witches attempt to cast a spell for greed and it takes a horrific turn.

So like, what's the genre?

Horror, but it's more of a dark fantasy, isn't it?

Where can we watch it?

Right here! ^_^ (and on my youtube channel)

END GAME FOR MYSTERY MAN ZERO?

For the first time in yeeeeeeeeeeeeeears, I feel like I know where this game is going. What this means is, maybe I'll have the game done by the end of the year? Does anyone still care? I've been so on/off with this game it's ridiculous. But the feedback for this game has consistently been amazing, it's really the only reason I haven't forgotten it (remember Vanity? lol).

Anyway, I leave you with this screenshot. I'm sure videos will follow at some point.


It's the 10th Friday in 2016 omg!!!!

Not getting off to a good start in terms of updates, huh? Hahahahaha Anyway, I really don't have much to report, other than I (finally) made a page for Manos the Hands of Fate! Check it out!

Just putting this video here so this blog post won't seem so empty. :)

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

I'm only about 23 days late with this.


I don't really have anything new to report, just wanted to write a new post, basically. I touched up Gatekeeper's blog page a teeny bit, uploaded a script for a 1 minute film I wrote last year which you can check out now! The film is currently being edited but is nearing completion. I'm trying not to rush the editors because, uh, no one's getting paid for this. lol I'm beyond glad I managed to find a really dedicated team who stayed with this to the end.

Some other Gary news. A while ago, I contemplated posting The Unseen's manuscript here, but I don't think I'm going to do that. Reason being, I'm still working on it. I use the feedback provided by my critique group to make adjustments. Right now, I submitted chapter 7 to be critiqued, so basically what you have is the first, like, 3rd of the manuscript polished/as polished as it can be for now while the rest of it, err, isn't. I'm also handwriting, what I hope to be, my second manuscript, Yours, a horror/fantasy/romance novel. I never wrote romance before, but it was in my spirit to write one, so I'm currently reading a ton of romance novels to figure out the common plot points that make a romance story ~work. I've learned quite a lot so far.

I MAY decide to rewrite Barbarians soon, really take my time with it, figure out what didn't work (a lot lol) and try my best to fix my mistakes. People seem to really enjoy the dialogue and the premise itself, and so I don't want to abandon it, even if I wrote it during a hard period in my life.

LAST THING. I have two flash fiction pieces that I may revise and post here, so be on the look out!

NEW NIGHTMARE DOWNLOAD!

Why does this always happen to me? So annoying. Anyway, in the old download, Buffy was supposed to equip Crossbows and while she could, the weapon would never level up. That's been fixed now, so if you want, here's a new download if you really wanted to equip her with a crossbow.

New Download

ETA 1/16/16

There was an issue with Matt's equipment, too. So yet another download has been added. Also, there was an annoying error that happened when you tried to scan an enemy after one's been killed. Hopefully that's also been fixed.

Luckily, you don't have to start over. Still, sorry for the inconveniences!

100TH POST!!!!

Omg, I guess this is a milestone? Merry Christmas and happy new year!!! I have to say, 2015 has been really good to me. 2014 too, actually, in spite of all the hardships.

Anyway, here is a new Gatekeeper video for you! The quality isn't the best, but I know now not to convert videos into mp4s.
