Whoo, somebody linked a kitten video on Youtube, and blammo. I was just stuck flipping to different kittens until I could finally tear myself away. Kitten videos are a bottomless pit. There was one that liked to sit in water! How can you miss that?
But earlier in the day, some people were mentioning Behind The Dumb
, which made me open that up and I ended up watching about 5 episodes. Interesting. Let me say this: on the plus side, I have definitely lost weight since then! I'd love to make more of those, or other videos, but man, what do you do? It's rough. Very. And I can't help but notice that while I was making those I never actually finished any games, which had some degree of correlation. It really was a pretty consuming task. At the time, I had the notion that recording my progress in front of people would force me to actually make said progress in order to record it, but I sidestepped that pretty handily when I actually made the shows. Was there more than one episode that actually included me accomplishing something? Well, besides the 2-parter about a Ludum Dare contest. Maybe what I should do is just record a full-on documentary on my next game, after I release M.H.D. I can just film every time I do some work, then after it's all done, I'll put it together! What a treat for one and all! Well, it's an idea anyway.
And if you haven't ever watched videos of Maru and the too-small box, you're missing out. My cat Ollie looks just like him, only to him, every box is too-small.
