Shut up Etienne lol
They can't all be busts - look at the successful games that you've made on here. I can't see it failing all the time, nowhere near.
Lol don't tell Gambit but I simply didn't wanna work with him, he's such an asshole lol jk

I can totally understand that ;)

This project is definitly happening.

W00t! Now to tidy things up on my end.

Can't, I'm off for a weekend starting tonight

Off for a weekend? You mean that you're not working on the super secret project? The only reason I can think to not be disappointed with you is that you're just giving Etienne the cold shoulder in a polite way. Therefore, i shall believe that. Well done!

Between 1,000 and 1,500. I want to keep it interesting and informative, but not go over-the-top, as that might kill off interest.

yeah 1000 to 1500 is what i am going for as well, but i think what amount you should use, should also depend on what setting your using. A enviroment description might me more lengthy then a story that picks up in the middle of a chase scene

I bet it's easier to find than in my home town.

and what the hell are you going to do with 87 half eaten twinkies

It all depends on who or what ate the other half of said twinkies and how long ago they were eaten. I might be hungry.

Indeed. I'm creating some kind of fantastic yet earthly world though, so it takes a loooot of description -.-

I'm going the short route for my first part too. Figure it's better to get em hooked first, then they'll be more likely to sit through the world-building and what-not.

Alright, it's been long enough since I pestered you about it - how is the project coming along? I want to see if all of my work is worth something, here!

I've got friends pestering me about it as well!

Get on "the skypes". There's a group chat Evil-Dog set up for authors and artists.
Last I heard from him, 1-2 weeks and he'll need your data. 3-4 weeks and thunderbirds are go.

Great, I'll have to get Skype now. I did read this 2 weeks back, but I got swamped with cricket, drinking and celebrations. Fun times.

Well, I finished my part and I'm just waiting for the release now.

Actually, I need to find a cover idea... oh well.

Also, I'm hoping this will get some decent publicity on NG! I mean, most of the people in the project are, I assume, from NG. Right? So yeah, it's pretty much a big NG thing, and I think Tom should appreciate that! :3

P.S.: Your level icon is so ugly Coop. What did Jeff smoke when he drew it?

I thought you were on about my face, then. I was about to 30 day you with a "whyIoughta!"

PM me if you're interested.

Are you still looking for story writers? I may want to help if you provide basic info on the subject.

I'm pretty sure that's an affirmative. If you've not had a response yet, send Evil-Dog a PM and tell him that you want in. I think there's still time.

On that note, I'm now ready to go. Just waiting on someone hitting the red button ;)
