Took today as another chill day, did some coding and games development which is, not what I would ever have expected to call chill, and admittedly wasn’t all that way. Still,this project is proving more fun than I expected. I have also found a truce between knowing assets come after having a core game, and the urge to just lose myself in some drawing: do the latter to unwind after coding.

Also just got to experience the new Back4Blood update and honestly, I think the game now feels a ton better with all cards on at once. It’s more of a power trip than it used to be, and I’m all for that.

And then we have NHO. Tomorrow it’ll hit 80K. That matters, because I’m probably aiming for like 88k, with the expectation I might overshoot. Now you might think that’s odd, as I’ve been landing in the upper 90s mark for a while – 96k for HOR and just shy of 100k for HOF – but I can give you one reason: when cut, those other two are gonna be 85k, and so is this one. It’s not because I don’t like the trilogy – though right now I do not – but because it’s three sequential tales I want them to be shorter to not ramble on too long. Heck, I might shoot for 80k on all three.

So, I guess looking at it that way, I’m pretty much done with it. And this time next week with any luck, I’ll be actually done with that draft. That would be nice.
