A 2017 Update

Hello everyone, it has been a little over a year since Alexander's heart first started having trouble. Earlier this year he underwent a heart procedure to correct the issue, but it seems that the procedure only partially worked and may need to go through it again in the future. Unfortunately I lost my job, (which provided our health insurance) so until I find a new insurance providing job, a second procedure will have to wait.

As a fun side note, we now know that Alexander doesn't understand English while he is under anesthesia and only responds to Russian. I had a feeling it would happen and I warned the anesthesiologist beforehand. My crappy Russian pronunciation skills and Google translate for the win.

In the meantime Alexander has been working at his contract job, but this means that game development is still on hold. This is not a project that will be forgotten. Our world developer Chris has eagerly been building new dungeons in the background.

It is a shame that the hiatus has lasted this long but as John Lennon said: Life is what happens to you while you are busy making other plans.

Radio Silent? What has been happening?

Hey Guys, 

I know it has been quite awhile since you have all heard from us. I wanted to give everyone an update. So after Gameacon, we traveled down to Maryland to stay with Alexander's parents for a few days. On Halloween night, Alexander started having chest pains and I drove him to the nearest hospital where he spent the night in the emergency room. They wanted to admit him in Maryland but he just wanted to get back to Boston. A week later, back in Massachusetts, at the request of his doctor he was in the hospital again. Long story short, he is going to be "ok" but it has affected his health and therefore game development the last few months. We hope to get him healthy enough to return very soon. Until then I am working on our next trailer.

I'm a firm believer in the "Photo or it didn't happen" mentality.
