My apologies for the late updates. It's been an absolute nightmare dealing with some of my recent work changes so this has unfortunately dropped massively in priority.
GameGuru NewsThe Monthly newsletter discussed my book being available. Thanks TGC - I appreciate it greatly.
There's also a free version of GG now, though it's a test version with a limited time of access. Should help entice new users.
There were some minor fixes to the PP edition, which is essentially using the latest, most up to date version. Notably there was a load/save Game Stats fix which should help games that make it into production.
What's Good in The StoreLots of new things are available! One of which is of course some of the Cyberpunk Noir assets from my book materials!
If you are NOT a purchaser of the book but want some of the static assets (weapons are on the way, once I untangle a few things with free time I don't have currently) then feel free to puchase these! If you do own the book - hit me up on discord for a free code to download it.
Valentin321 put together this great looking motorboat:
Sula made some great looking PBR trucks - https://www.tgcstore.net/artist/157895
Fredgames77 has put up some excellent cemetery models: https://www.tgcstore.net/pack/11153
Pasquill put up a really superb armored vehicle - https://www.tgcstore.net/product/33517
AlexGCC put a number of great models up but I really like his apocalypse truck: https://www.tgcstore.net/product/33532
Northern put out a very nice VIP model with a decent array of scripts and animations making it a good value: https://www.tgcstore.net/product/33528
And for 'most interesting/innovative' item on the store in the past month or so, we have Erart's impressively weird ghost mirror. You have to watch the video to see what I mean:
How cool is that? Anyways, you can get your copy here: https://www.tgcstore.net/product/33521
Granada made this fantastic free shotgun!

Tarkus 1971 made some pretty excellent music available for free: https://forum.game-guru.com/thread/213190/last
Some great scripts found their way onto the net as well such as
smallg's 'racing script' https://forum.game-guru.com/thread/207801?page=25#msg2622028
And Amenmoses's 'cold breath' script: https://forum.game-guru.com/thread/221215#msg2622148
Notably for me though is the Airplane script he posted to discord. There's a video in the 'random acts of creativity' section of it. It's really good stuff!
Third Party Tools and TutorialsThis week there's some interesting Russian Language videos (I love auto-translate) on youtube for GameGuru: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F3QE9rGxKVw
And also: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ErNFM-AoKhE
Random Acts of Creativity (WIPs)Amenmoses is working with Bod on making GG into a flight sim. This has to be seen to be believed at this link: https://vimeo.com/366328897
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Zgarg-algM - Bonesy's Cyberfi updates look good but the colors are still painful to me. I realize it's the style, of course, it's just hard for me to watch. That said, it has potential so hopefully he'll keep refining it
I'm happy to see Honkeyboy has revived his galaxy-hopping game. While it lacks polish the core components look really great and I'm looking forward to seeing his future work on this!
Dietara got some video updates. This blog post is already really saturated though so I can't post much more safely - so here's a link to where you can find some more: https://forum.game-guru.com/thread/220994?page=1#msg2621936
In My Own WorksI want nothing more than to work on GameGuru projects I have outstanding but between the end stages of a basement remodel, a new baby, work woes, and the myriad other things clutching me I simply can't spare the time. On my list of things I want to get done by the end of the year:
- Some new script releases for the store
- Get those @#$% weapons posted to the store
- Make some new space skies
- Work on my own game project
Lastly, thanks to everyone who has supported me by purchasing my book. I'm going through some hard times right now and it's good to know that the year of time it took me to make that is seeing some use by more people than I expected.
