3 Bits of News!

Hey guys, haven't updated in a while because it was my 18th birthday on the 31st of May and I've been away.

Three bits of news! Thats right!

NEW Black Hole Game in Production!
I've restarted work on an official Black Hole game titled, 'Black Hole: The Game that Sucks.' The platformer will see you take control of BH and his amazing sucky handed abilities. A video game production team named BlueStar Games has offered to program the game, with the pixel art provided by non other than yours trully. You can see a mockup (a fake screenshot that demonstrates the artwork) to the right. For more info and updates check out the official work in progress thread.

In other news my girlfriend has started working on a figurine of your favourite Better Homeless Living host, Sydney Claywood. Justine plans on giving it to me as a birthday gift and she insisted I should make work in progress post to show you all how it's coming along! She's looking pretty dang sexy if you ask me, and the figurine looks pretty good too! I'll keep you posted on the progress, and I'll make sure to show it off properly once it's done!

Thanks PB. I'm really excited about the Black Hole game. As you know, I've had it in the planning stage for a long time before I found this renewed interest in it.

You'll never see a score that big when you're actually playing the game... looks harder than Mario Kart.

Well, it's been a while, Ivan, but - wow - congrats on the developments with the Black Hole game. Admittedly, I don't know much about video games, but it looks like a lot of fun.

At the risk of looking like a self-promotional twit, I thought I'd let you know that I've finally gotten around to posting the first excerpt from my novel-in-progress (a mere 2 months later!). In case you're still interested in reading excerpts, here's the link:
Chapter 1, Excerpt 1

I'm gonna do my damnedest to stay fairly focused on this project and keep posting excerpts. Thanks again for your encouragement.

Oh, and happy belated birthday!

Thank a lot Mr. X! I'll read and post on your excerpts later today.

And I'm sorry to everyone for not posting much lately. I've had a long break of uni and for parts of it I minimal internet access. I have some exciting new developments on Black Hole to share and will have a new post by the end of the week.

Thanks, Ivan! Hey, it occurred to me that you've already read a fair portion of what's in Excerpt 1, so Excerpt 2 is now posted.
