Tim, do you realize leaving will only make the community smaller?

Indeed, but I don't think it has been. Downright doofusness has been censored. I had no clue he started a "hate campaign", but I still say it's sad to see someone er... leave.

I was wondering why nothing was happening on Silvernova. Its a shame to see you go. Hopefully Silvernova stays intact or I'll have to work my way into another site...

I "gave up" a couple of years back but some random Russian guy emailed me asking about Satan Sam 2 and why I was making that instead of finishing the first one. So I remade it as TNSS and that brought the spark back. Of sorts.
Breaks help. I hadn't used MMF in so long I forgot how to copy directions and little things like that. But really I'd just stop making games for now, focus on making art and music with the intention of not using it for games. You'll learn more and when (if) you do get back into games you can make them much better.

Also play more. Play more good games Tim.

I dunno, I still balance klikking and a 65+ hour full time job. Albeit the progress is slow, it still happens.

Also, your games don't get downloaded and commented on if you don't download and comment on other games. You'd be surprised how well karma works around here. That's pretty much what's happening now.

You can hardly complain about activity when you contribute to the problem.

It's tough finding people to bend to your will and have them make stuff for you without paying them.

Besides the above points, I guess it's fine if you leave, though you haven't been around much anyways. Sorry to see you go, hope sometime or another you change your mind! See you.



Hey phizzy, wake up and talk to me on msn, or I'll file for divorce.

-_- Maybe in your country! They actually pay me though so perhaps they aren't doing it under the table.

I kinda expected to see you say this at some point, since you've been so busy as of late and haven't worked on a game since god-knows-when. Still, pity to see it happen - I agree with the others though I don't think you can ever lose the passion for making games, I have to take a break every now and then but I always come back to it at some point.

It's all learning and characters building etc. anyway. I'm gonna need a new musician!

(If anyone wants to help on the music front, or in fact any front I'd appreciate it)

It really is NOT the best site for *posting* games. TDC is very small and unknown in the greater internet community. I find many of my games being picked up and posted onto other websites by bots or pilferers, which is very good since I've noticed sites like that getting 10x the downloads I'll get here at TDC.

For example, look at the effort:ownload ratio of a game like this:
http://www.create-games.com/download.asp?id=7154

Takes about 300x the time as any of my other projects, and will probably only see 20 downloads. But if you want your klik game to actually be played, you need to go out onto the big bad internet and look at other sites. Its really good place for asking programming questions and such, or the community, but its too small to support getting word-of-mouth games out there. Thats what sites like indygamer or tigsource are for.

yarr not much in the way of changes, but nobody downloaded it then, either. Figured I'd put it up for final release now that its abandoned. The first one was just a single level engine test, and that will get more downloads then the full game! -_-

I remember the day I quit. Both of them, in fact.

I haven't made a gayum since 2006 but I'm still lurking here. =0

Maybe when MMF3D finally comes out I'll make some more... Or when the Java Mobile build is done. (but by then everyone will have iPhones, and no-one will want to play a crappy 2D Java game)... Hmm.
