It's been a while since my last update, mostly because I've spent the last few weeks in hospital because of some kind of infection between the eyeball and the brain. Fun. Two operations and far too much bed rest later and I'm almost back to normal (except for some minor swelling and a couple of big scars just under the eyebrow).

Things what I have learned in hospital:
- Not eating or moving for ten or so days is a fantastic way to loose lots of weight. It's not a great idea if like me you don't have any spare weight to loose.
- Hospital food is shit, but even they can't mess up a bowl of cereal and some toast. After breakfast it's all downhill from there.
- Morphine is shockingly good, and seems to start work in under 30 seconds.
- In the "critical care" section (which I fortunately only spent a couple of days) everything beeps. Constantly. Going to sleep is therefore impossible.
- Doctors are apparently using cocaine now during operations to help stop bleeding. (I'm still unsure about this one. I'm certain that's what they said, but I was probably too drugged up to remember correctly).
- Being in hospital is mind-numbingly boring.

On the plus side I had plenty of time to sit around and go over ideas for my next game. I need to do a whole bunch of tech tests first to check that some things are possible, so for now all I'm saying is it's a Pac Man/Mario/Comix Zone fusion and will probably borrowing heavily from films like The Fugitive and Sin City.
