Game Dev Journal: A Good Nerd Year

2016 was a really good nerd year (turning 42 had to mean something, right!?) and I got a lot of work done (while also working on my meta-game), but not much else, and come february this year I felt over-worked, so it was time for a break before it got worse (hello one of the […]
