Before I talk about what I've been up to, Peter's got something to show.
What is this creature? Peter's told me that it definitely has something to do with the Siphon Spirit world. Is it a friend of the Spirit from the demo? A trickster demon? An ancient sage? Only time, (and maybe Peter) can tell.
I was sick today, so I had a little extra gaming time. But mostly a lot of lying down time. While I was playing Recettear (enjoying it so far), I started thinking about the blacksmith shop for one of the game ideas rattling in my head. Usually I just keep playing, certain that I'll remember. I rarely do. Today I actually got up and grabbed the design notebook for the game in question. I got all the ideas down, which lead me to a few more ideas. After that, I was in an interesting state of mind, as I really started noticing the little things that make a big difference. That led me to make more design notes.
While this is great for design, it's not that great for actually playing games.
