Out with the Old

Happy Nauruan Independence Day, everybody!

For anyone still watching, I've expunged my old site in order to concentrate on my new one (Sungazer Software) full time. Plus, I had a lot of insane rambling from 2009 or so that I didn't want hanging around, so it had to go.

If there were any posts you absolutely cannot live without, or if you object loudly enough, then I could be goaded into having a "greatest hits" archive left intact somewhere. Swayed, even. Until then, though, consider any links to Tilde-One.com to be defunct. (Actually they'll just redirect to the new front page.)

Good night, and keep watching the skis! Uh, skies.

That's quite a loss... I really liked the game design articles you had put up there, and I would have liked to reread them when working on future projects. Is there a chance you can at least save those articles somewhere? Thanks a lot, and best of luck with "The Tenth Line"!

I'm still thinking about how to do it. I can just make a clone of the database and preen the articles I want to keep, but I'll have to craft a new presentation page and some sort of table of contents. The comment system can probably stay.

Thanks!

(e) Comedy option: or post them all on my account here and double my makerscore
That's a shame, I will miss them. But you gotta do what you gotta do.

I would like to request you revive the one on religion in videogames if nothing else, as one of my Dragon Quill reviews references it, so whatever poor soul stumbles across my thoughts on Final Fantasy X will probably be a little confused now.

Edit: So hm, will How Far be postponed while you work on The Tenth Line? That's a bit unfortunate, but this new project does look quite interesting. It'll be neat to see you branching out into a new universe.

Edit edit: Wait, are the dev blogs for IMTS and The Drop gone too? I do feel like those should be backed up somewhere, since they contain a lot of useful trivia and behind-the-scenes stuff people can't find anywhere else. Also I referenced them a lot in my review series so that's more broken links I'll have to remove.

I'm working on archiving them right now, so don't you worry. They will still use the "make.php?id=" links with the same ID numbers, so as long as you linked to that version of the page, it should still work.

I say HF is on hiatus, but not really - as soon as I settle into a groove, I'll probably work on both in parallel. I'm moving in April and I got some other stuff going on before then so it will be tough before then.

Also, sorry to say it, but some enterprising young person went ahead and make an impressively comprehensive TV Tropes page for The Tenth Line. You'll get the next one, though!
Actually I won't 'cause TV Tropes banned me, the spoilsports. Probably for the best, I was starting to stare too deep into the abyss. At least I have an alternate means of giving you publicity now.

But wow, seriously? Pretty much the only information about the game is that one blog post! That's some impressive dedication.

Aw, that's too bad. I have gotten a decent amount of traffic from that domain over the years. I have heard horror stories about the forums, though, so I prefer to look rather than touch.

If my autonumber id field is to be believed, I have over 400 posts to sift through. I added the newest handful to the archive, and will work on it some more tonight. Maybe during halftime.
i was always jealous of how productive you were, with all the shit you posted on your site.....looks like i will continue to creep on you and be jelly

i too would like to see an archive of all your old articles tho

Whoa hey, glad to hear from you again! Good lord, I posted this over a year ago.

I posted an archive of most of them, going back a couple of years, before I lost interest. Hopefully that's enough!
