Someone pasted this on #tigirc just now. I never really played animal crossing, but I found this to be pretty sweet:

I'm sure this is old news by now. The good guys at telltalegames/gametap has decided to release Sam & Max episode 4: Abe Lincoln Must Die as freeware in anticipation for season 2 launch. You can get the game from here:

international portal [Oct. 23rd, 2007|07:25 pm]

The international portal for my ISP just went down. As of currently I can't visit some of the sites I frequent, including gmail.com, which I desperately need to use right now to contact my playtester. Jebus, this shit always happens I really need to use the net.

Fedora Spade 3 Finished [Oct. 14th, 2007|02:43 pm]
orchard_l
I finally finished the game two days ago. The last few months working on case 3 have been hectic, and I had doubt if I'm ever going to finish it on schedule, but it looks like I finished it ahead of schedule. Whew... I feel like a million bucks. It's too early for celebration though. Playtesting and proofreading is going to be hell. Well, mostly the proofreading. I got most of the bugs sorted out. Retrogamer won't be proofreading case 3 because of IRL business. It seems like I'll need to find someone who can fill the role. Ack, it's probably going to be a long while before I can release the game.

I'm also still hoping to find someone who can compose NSF tunes for the game, but things aren't looking so hot right now. I sent an email to a profilic NSF composer a while back, and his response was enthusiastic. The thing is, it takes him like, a month or so to reply email. He said that he's been extremely busy at work or something but is still interesting on composing some tunes for the games. That was 2 months ago and I haven't heard from him since. At this point, I have my fingers crossed. Oh well...

Are you a hot-blooded mangaka!? [Aug. 11th, 2007|06:47 pm]

Saw this while browsing a manga review site today. Looks pretty amusing. Apparently it's a humorous manga about a hotblooded mangaka drawn in in the style of the 70s shonen manga. The art reminds me a bit of Tetsuya Chiba.

Ack, enountered an unexpected bug while tinkering with the Tomato engine's password system. The password system only works normally if you only have one string of text. If you use more than one string of text, it'll ask you to input the text on the first string of text even though you have more than one string of text (instead of waiting until the end of the text string to ask for the password.) Help! :o

Internet line went down for the whole day yesterday. It was a hassle trying to get it back up. I accidentally reseted my wireless modem and I need some configure it back. I called the service center and asked for some help. The dude on the other line was just clueless. All I need to do is input the RIGHT static DNS IP into the configuration, and he didn't even know it. He told me he's going to report it to the techies and have them call me later. 6 hours later... they did, and I got the static DNS IP address. I really CAN'T understand why I to wait 6 hours to get these numbers. Oh well, I could spend an eternity bitching about the broadband service here, but it won't do me any good. On the bright side, I managed to finish 3 cutscenes for FS episode 3.

Huh...? Huh? HUH!? [May. 26th, 2007|09:01 pm]

These past few days have been pretty depressing. It's one of those days you thought you just can't help but wonder if you made the right decision. Did I? I don't know, but it's one of those things that really should be the last thing on my mind right now, because it's already too late for that. I already made a decision and the only thing I can do from now and move forward. Still, knowing this fact doesn't make it easier for me to sleep at nights.

Anyway, moving on to other things. I still CAN'T find the courage to drive here. Shit, everytime I think about it, I just want to forget about ever driving here. I thought traffic was goddamn worse in California, but shit, it was nothing compared to the traffic over here. Fuck driving ethics, nobody's got one here... cause they all bribed the motor vehicle department guys for their driving license. If you had an accident with one of those guys, you better be ready to pay up, because... well, it's just the way it is... even if you're completely in the right (but of course, they'll probably beat you up if you're Chinese.) It's been a month since I last driven a stick shift too and I'm beginning to forget the basics of it. I miss the auto car that I used back in the States. Ah, forget all of this stick shift nonsense... I'm saving up for a matic car.

Retro's 60% done with the proofreading so far, so I dunno, looks like the game might be released in mid june or something. I'm not really in a rush though... I'm currently working on episode 3 in the meantime.
