Happy New Year, Jimmy!

Hey, everyone! It’s 2018, and the cynics of the world will tell you that this is it, this is the year that humanity will finally cave in on itself, and while that may or may not be true, the good news is that you’ll be able to play Jimmy and the Pulsating Mass before that happens.

At this point, I’m waist-deep in writing dialogue and getting scenes together. This process is taking longer than I planned on some levels and way less time on others, but I think the average is slightly slower than expected. That’s okay, though, because I allocated more than enough time for this. I’ve just been finding bugs here and there while spot-playtesting, drawing graphics that I had forgotten about, and generally spending more time on the dialogue because I want it to be consistently thoughtful and layered.

This month I’m going to keep plowing through the dialogue. I’ve already written some scenes that I really, really like. For instance, you’re going to love Jimmy’s grandma.

I would also like to take some time to sign up on a few distribution platforms other than Steam. This is something I’ve been meaning to do, but I drag my feet on stuff like this. Expect me to wait until the last of the month to do this so that I can mention that I did in my next progress report, haha.

Oh, and Jimmy also got mentioned in a couple of “indie games to look out for” lists. You can see them here and here. Both lists mention that Jimmy doesn’t have an official release date, and while it’s true that I don’t have a specific day listed, I’m still aiming for summer, and I’m still confident I can deliver in that time frame. Anyway, here’s to a good year!

Other platforms part sounds interesting. I'm looking forward that report.

And congrats on getting featured! I don't know sites but there are some big names on both lists next your little Jim.
Definitely shoot for a release on itch.io. It doesn't take long to get set up there. GOG may also be a good option. Keep your options open since Steam isn't exactly the definitive go-to platform anymore.

Jimmy's one of the games I'm really looking forward to this year. Best of luck! You can do it!
Yeah, itch and GOG are the two I'm going for. That Gamecrate website is related to Newegg, I think, so that was neat, but it looks like it didn't get much traffic. I just thought it was neat to see an rpg maker game mentioned alongside, like, the new Super Meat Boy.

I would try humble bundle too. It will increase a chance that they'll want Jimmy in one of their bundles later on(which are quite a sale booster) and their store isn't flooded with rm games. I only know about Amber Throne, Last Word and Celestian Tales).
