sumarised update and game released


Hey you guys,
Steve again.

Woe… finally back blogging, huh?

So, as you know, summer break has started for me. In fact, it started 12 days ago, meaning I haven’t blogged in 2 weeks and 1 day. Haven’t you all missed my awesome posts? Oh yeah, and another thing to say. Remember I said stranded was to be released on June 8? Well I bet I ment to put a 1 before that 8, because it’s being released on June 18 instead of june 8. So, I will give you that game, before talking about my life.

So, as you should know, I am going to put the link before the story summary of the game. So, here it is: download the awesome game now. Now, for the story.

After waking up on a misterious platform in the middle of noware in this weird place, you must find your way through this game. As the title says, your objective is to fight and defeat the boss, who might seem a harmless mouse but isn’t one after all. In this game, you will encounter 2 elusive creatures–a cat that looks very violent and weird, but could actually be of some help, and the boss of course. After you defeat the boss, you will find out something you’ve wanted to know for a while now. You will find that out at the very end, but why should I spoil it for you? That’s right, I shouldn’t.

I hope you enjoy! Just make sure you hurry over to the gamebooks page and play stranded part 1 if you haven’t done so already.

life summary

Now, on to the life events.
My life has gone pretty well since June 3rd, because of tiger reward camp which turned out awesome, and then summer break. The strange thing was the fact that it didn’t set in for me that it was summer until the first monday we were off, because the way the school year ended for me. It ended with my dad picking me up early from school, nothing wrong with that just seeming something that might also happen in the middle of the school year. So, that’s why it took so long.
Otherwise, my last 2 weeks of summer have gone by pretty fast, because they were fun and stuff. One thing I forgot to mencion, is actually where I am now. I am at tsb once again (see the monthly archive for February because that was the last time I’ve been here), but this time I’m here for Catching Rays, a class all about solar weather. My teachers are pretty awesome, not to mencion everybody is my friend here. I even get to hang out with my computer geek friend, the only person I’ve been to more than 2 camps with. It is going to be a fun rest of the week–tomorrow we have a swim party, thursday a movie, and friday is going home. One thing we did in class is to make a SID solar wind antenna which has a computer that is round, light, and fits in the palm of your hand. It takes data it receives from solar blasts and CMEs and sends it to a sound card. I don’t remember much of the rest, but that you can put it in audacity (an audio editor) and here the frequency noises it makes. Also, it puts the data in a spread sheet.

On another note, if you’re wondering what I have planned for the summer, it is:
1. finish this tsb program
2. stay home for 2 weeks
3. go to lions club camp
4. stay home for 3 weeks
5. go to broken bow
6. go to maine
7. stay home until it’s gime to go back to school.

Well, I’m glad I got you caught up on the blog, and that stranded is finally out! I hope you enjoy!

Thanks for reading,
type you later,
Steve

Blog Update and a couple excuses


Hey you guys,
Steve again.

I can’t believe it, the last week of school is here!

As I’m sure you probably know, This post was called updates and excuses. The reason it had excuses in the title, was because for one, I’m not even close to done with stranded, and 2 I didn’t post the podcast.

As far as my new game goes, I am still in the beginning. It has 42 sections so far, but I want it to be a big game. Since I’m not as extremely addicted to swamp, I’ve began working more on it. In fact, You can find a forum newsroom for my game on the audiogames.net forum; the link is below:
go to the stranded newsroom
As you know, my reason for still being at the beginning is still the same:
1. I’ve been addicted to my game.
2. sometimes I think it would be too much work to finish it (but I will finish it anyway).
Now, on to the podcast.

I haven’t quite yet released the podcast to my website. Here’s why:
1. I recorded it, but my computer came unplugged and deleted it.
2. When I went to recover it in audacity (the audio editor I use), It pulled up some weird message and didn’t work.
3. After that I was unmotivated.

Don’t worry, I will re record that and get it on the site
Now, I told you I would record a thunderstorm on saturday, but nature ripped me off and it never stormed!!!

On to the life part

This weekend was a good one. I did however spend pretty much all of saturday waiting for a storm that didn’t come until 10:15 at night, and wasn’t big enough to record. I did however get a 5 minute recording of thunder claps. Comment below the post if you want the recording.
Other than that, my sister’s friend came over saturday night, so I just hung out playing swamp from about 10:30 to 12:300 midnight, after which I went to bed.
Sunday was a computer filled day. I logged on to swamp around 10 or so, and didn’t leave the computer until 1 30. By the way, 30 minutes of that time were spent on stranded. In case you don’t know, I can get a lot done on my gamebooks in 30 minutes, so I bet it will be done on Wednesday or so and I can begin packaging and getting ready for the big release.
Besides the 3 or so hour of playing on the computer, I didn’t do much else. I just briefly hung out with my sister and her friend, and chilled out. The only productive things I did were working on Stranded, doing the dishes and puttin gup my clothes.

As far as today goes, I still look forward to the last day of school. In fact, as of today, there are 3 days until the big day! Today is the last full day of school we’ll be doing work. I’m sure we’ll do some sort of work wednesday and thursday, but those are half days. Tomorrow, is the tiger bash or whatever they call it where you have lots of fun all day.

Thanks for reading,
Type you later,
steve.

P.S. I WILL GET THE PODCAST POSTED AND STRANDED WILL BE FINISHED ON TIME! I promice.
