Nothing too much going on at the moment, so I decided to take a look at a Sega Genesis game that I really enjoyed both as a kid and even nowadays. I was actually originally planning to do a Minecraft-related filler, specifically in regards to Feed The Beast, but recent major version updates and changes as such is having me put off doing so for the time being. It'll probably be the first filler to come out in Season 4 of ADG in February. :B
Since Ivxscape development is on hold I've temporarily (possibly permanently) removed the little bar at the top of the main page of my website. I really wish I could talk about my current game project but it's so incredibly unique and has so much potential... and is so incredibly risky, that I simply can't take the chance. What I can say is that I finished working on the foundation code I was originally writing for Ivxscape, so if I do go back to Ivxscape I won't be starting from scratch and will be right into coding the actual game itself! :D
Also, apologies to Patreon supporters who expected a livestream last week but didn't get one. My sleeping schedule was way too far out of whack to be able to offer one up. There's still a couple weeks left though for the month so I'll definitely find a way to do a couple! ;)
News for September 3rd, 2014:
Finally have a new development journal entry up for Ivxscape. Most of the coding work I've been doing has just been foundation building which is why it's taken so long to get up to a point where I have anything to show, but the video configuration screen actually serves as a great example to explain many (not all) of the little things going on in the background which is going to make it possible to make the rest of this game MUCH faster. ;)
Also, even though Patreon support has dropped back below the $256/mo milestone, I did indeed hit it, even if only for a little, so I'm gonna follow through with the milestone end result of doing exclusively requests on ADG. Besides, I've already planned out which games I intend to cover between now and the start of Season 4 of ADG! :)

Yup. I promised a commemorative video for reaching my first milestone goal on Patreon and spent quite a number of weeks trying to come up with something decent that could really do the event justice, and I think the end result is something very special and not something you could ever get with a typical television show or something that would be competing for ratings. It goes to show the strengths that come with producing an internet video series and just how different (and better) a paradigm such a series is. (Besides, I personally feel "television" as we know it will probably be dead in a decade or two as stronger technologies take the scene for delivering content to people.)
And of course, don't forget to watch the latest ADG episode on Starflight if you haven't yet! ;)

I now have a Patreon account set up!
The idea behind Patreon is that it enables people to directly support content creators on a regular basis, kinda like Kickstarter, but with pledges based on each piece of content created, or in my case, monthly for all content. It's a way for those of you who've wanted to support the show more directly to do so beyond simply watching it and spreading the word! :)
Though I want to make this perfectly clear: I will NEVER start charging money just to watch Ancient DOS Games! This is just an extra thing for those of you who want to give that extra bit of support, plus I have some rewards set up too so that everyone who provides a monthly pledge (even as little as $1 a month) will get something in return for being super-awesome! :D
