Jesus. This is the first written content since, like, one jillion years ago. This was also the first Critical Close-up since January, which means that this video was a whopping 5 months in the making. Sure, I wasn’t writing and editing it for the entire 5 months, but I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t the biggest, messiest video project embarked on thus far.
I also managed to put it together in the scant few bits of free time that skipped between the cracks of my two jobs and weekly webshow. It’s the closest thing to a magnum opus yet– a totally new style of writing, delivery and presentation that I hope goes over well, with a layer of polish and production values that the other videos just don’t have. But I still wish I could’ve given it more time.
This blog post is here to announce that we’re gonna break for next week and take some free time for once. All things considered, it’ll actually feel like the first full weekend I’ve had in months. I didn’t even take a break after GDC. Fun fact: I was actually doing the first round of readings for the MGS2 project while on those trains.
This project absolutely wore me out, so one Bunnyhopless week will give me time to rest and also give this video some much-needed time in the spotlight. I’m eager to hear what everyone thought of it!
