If you are writing any book about the end of the world, what you are really writing about is what’s worth saving about it.

More posts on the City of Knox will be delayed for a bit. I’ve been asked to guest DM a game of Dungeons and Dragons this weekend, and I’m working hard to get ready in time for tomorrow.

City of Knox - Story

Probably the biggest distinction from Majora’s Mask is the story of City of Knox. Whereas Majora’s had an impending doom you had to avoid, City of Knox has a pursuit of freedom from the time loop. Along with the symbolism of Night versus Day, and the various symbolic activites of each day of the festival.

Warning, this is a long one.

City of Knox - Aesthetic

I’ve been notoriously against the modern gaming trend to make things realistic, and I stand in staunch opposition to the desaturated method of  making a game darker.

But, a measure of drama does need to be in place for every game, and as I reference the gameplay of Majora’s Mask, so do I reference how it managed to carry a dramatic unease, despite its bright colors.

City of Knox

Majora’s Mask is the black sheep of the Zelda family, and one of the most beloved games of all. However, because of its odd nature, its unlikely that Nintendo will ever make another game quite like this, and I frankly feel that most other big game studios would either mangle it horribly, or produce a lesser quality game. So, I’ve designed my own Spiritual successor to what is, in my opinion, the greatest 3D Zelda game yet.

Yet another repurposing

Okay, I haven’t been doing much art, which should be painfully obvious to those who even remember they follow me.

But, since going vacant, I have discovered where my passion lies. It’s in Game Design.

This isn’t art, nor is it programming, though in ways, it is closer to the latter. It’s the Project Manager of the game creation world, and it’s the head of it all. Game Designers are the ones with the pitch, the vision, and the ability to dabble in everything else enough to pull the other people together.

Now, since I don’t have any sort of team, I’ll basically be using this blog to detail pitches and interesting bits of various ideas. I will still post some art on occasion, but by taking the focus away from that, I will feel better about using this blog for what I actually do nowadays.

It says something that the fire alarms just went off in my house, and I don’t even blink. I just assume my brother decided to burn his food again.

I wouldn’t be surprised at all if I end up dying in a fire one day…

Turning on Pokemon X long enough to get the event Vivillon has awoken a desire to take my fakedex project off hiatus.

This won’t be immediate, and I’ll be kicking things off by practicing my spriting via these amazing creatures created by my partner in crime for his original tabletop RPG system, and fictional universe. Give them a looksee~ Not very detailed, but enough to whet your appetite.

Reblog your very first shiny Pokemon :D
