I am making progress, but my programming time has been constrained slightly for the past week (but that will return to normal in a few more days).
Anyway, I'm just dropping in to point out this great freeware indie game I found called ''. Despite it's very simplistic title, this Open World + Side scrolling + Zelda-esqe feeling game is very very good. The gameplay is fun, and despite all appearances of a cookie-cutter plot, it had several good plot twists and a rather consistent tied-together world.
I highly recommend this game.
Also, while plugging things, I might as well re-plug my friend's daughter's webcomic, Patchwork Magic. Whereas I live in a much-more urban area (Kansas City is really large), they live about three hours out on a farm (that I've probably visited a dozen times since I moved to the midwest). They're originally city-folk also, so it's funny how excited they get about farm-related stuff.
I highly-biasedly recommend this webcomic, seeing that I put the site together for her (*cough* wordpress *cough* [size=2]I ain't a web developer).
Now if I could only get people to pay me to plug their stuff...
I'll post a small entry about the editor status in AdventureFar in 10 days or so, with an (new/revised) estimation of how long the editor will take to complete.
