A heads up on the Ultimate Edition's Development

Greetings fellow denizens of rmn, Wheelman here. Man oh man, it's been fifty years since I posted a blog up here hasn't it? So what's the occasion you ask? Well I thought I'd take the time to fill you in on the current situation on the Umbral Soul ultimate edition's production. Come on, it's right there in the title.

See, earlier this year someone asked me when the game would be finished, and I told them it should be done by the end of the year, provided life didn't punch me in the gut the way it did last year. Yet here we are in the merry month of December and still no game. What's up with that? Well you see dear reader, while life did not hit me with the gut punch/left hook/shoryuken combo that it did last year, it did indeed jab me in the nose. Repeatedly.

What is the source of said jabs, you ask? Well that would be my job. There's been a bit of a mass exodus from the company, with thirteen people leaving within the span of a week, and to make up for the lack of manpower, the rest of us have been feeling the crunch. That crunch can be summed up in two horrible words; mandatory overtime. Good for my wallet, bad for just about everything else. For a while now I've had to spend a good chunk of my Saturdays at work, in addition to the usual forty hours of toil. This has meant having less time to do the things I love, such as trading emails with friends, playing games, and engaging in what rmn affectionately refers to as, "gam mak." Hence why I haven't been able to meet said deadline.

So yeah, the game is still coming along, it's just taking longer than I had hoped. I had an interview the other day that I thought went well so hopefully I'll soon have a new less time consuming job to call my own. I'd love to give a proper release date but since that almost never works out for me I'm just going to hold my tongue this time. Thank you all for your patience and understanding, and for supporting me with your kind words all this time. Rest assured I'm trying to make something you will hopefully find worth the wait.

Man I totally feel you. I'm already usually totally demotivated to do anything productive even if I have all the free time in the world, imagine when I spent 70% of my life at work. Sucks big...
Good luck on that interview tho!
good luck with your interview im sure the wait will be reward by 10000 like from your fans hapy holdays
heya, told ya i would be here and here i am ;)

mandatory overtime? now what is some bs if i have ever seen one! i really hope you get that other job, senpai, you are supposed to work to live, not live to work :( and i wonder what does it say about the company you work for that so many people left just like that...

on the other hand, i am so happy to hear that it is the job that you are having issues with, and not something more serious, such as family issues or health. on that note, please be careful with how all that overtime and stress that comes with it could affect you :/

i know for sure that the wait for the game will be worth it, but, again, please do not pressure yourself! this needs to be something relaxing and enjoying. if we could wait 50 years, what's a few more? :3
