Situation Update

Hello Everyone!
    This update is a bit sad in the sense that I have to delay writing the next Neostriker Novel. As much as I was hoping that it would be finished by now, my lack of free time has indeed made that goal not a reality. Even more so, due to personal reasons, I have to move in a few months which means I now have to find a new job for me to start when that time comes as well as prep skills to help me do so. Now I will try to continue to update this blog on a bi-weekly basis though you can be more certain that very few will be about my writing progress.
    On the other hand, I am interested in getting Neostriker: Shining published and even though the full story is available online (and half of it on Wattpad), it can certainly benefit from some grammatical edits and there are plenty of bonus details I can write up about each chapter. Perhaps I'll even consider a Kickstarter as the goal is simply to get it in print. Yes, you can read it online, but I have found it's very difficult to read something on a screen as opposed to having a book in your hands. My last resort may be self-publishing on Amazon and see where that takes me.

P.S. As for that game I mentioned in my last update, there were a few concerns that came up that I wish to address before I upload it. As to the actual content, it's just the space shooter from Unity with a few changes and additions. I added an extra foe, health, and enemy bullets. At some point I want to add a menu screen and boss levels as well but perhaps I should progress to the next tutorials.

Game development update

Hello Everyone,
    Lately I haven't been able to work on Neostriker and I'm still working on learning how to program games (eventually I want to make a Neostriker game demo to help promote my next story). However, the process is slow due to the fact that I have a full time job and also must care for relationships as well as other obligations. Hopefully I can soon return to writing the story or at least the Legends that will lead into it.

P.S. There is no guarantee this will happen, but depending on how the system works, I may upload one of my practice games for you to try (just modifications to a tutorial online).
