As anyone currently looking at my submissions thus far has probably noticed, I am quite serious about entering the realm of videogame design as a career. Being an amateur with no real-world experience in the field means I've got to hunt down anything and everything I can find to learn from and understand it all more.

Well, imagine my surprise when I just happened to run into this blog almost by accident, and learned so much from it, having many "Aha" moments along the way?

THE SONIC PROJECT: An adventure in hypothetical videogame design. sonicdesignproject.blogspot.co…

This was mind-blowing. This guy has at least a few hours of legit reliant experience, yet has been able to understand so much to an incredible degree. The motivations has evolved, and the basis has matured. Originally, the hypothetical concept was to be mostly based on Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure 2. Yet, over time, those two games became not good enough. Even after the blog went through so much analysis about the genius of both games to such a powerful degree that I never even came close to noticing. That's saying something. Do take a look at this. A personal favorite of mine thus far has been this reverse-engineer idea to get a story to come out that involves the final boss and instantly reminds me of how C.S. Lewis first came up with the entire Chronicles of Narnia series. sonicdesignproject.blogspot.co…

I spent several hours reading this stuff, and I'm not even done, yet. As if that wasn't enough, the blog also pointed to other sources of information and experience that I have just got to get a seriously-solid look at.

On top of all this, I've also got some book called "Reality is Broken (Why games make us better and how they can be used to change the world)" that I've got to start reading. So, I've got so much to be doing, right now! Hopefully, what I've found can assist anyone out there who may have held goals similar to my own. Of course, there's also The Escapist, which I've been to for a while, that also taught me a lot, as well. www.escapistmagazine.com/

Such a pleasant surprise. This has been awesome. Hopefully, it can do something for the rest of you. I should be able to apply pretty much everything here to Koro, Jellybob, Agent Xavier, and various other characters and concepts I hold which I've not yet revealed to all of you!

I'm a nice guy (or at least I'm pretty sure I am) and I have been called "trustworthy". I am very "Friend Compatable" in the sense that I can become friends with just about anybody.

I'm thinking of having the agent's full name be "Xavier Lancaster". It has a nice ring to it.

I hope I can get some new pictures out. They've been drawn and scanned. There's just the trouble of finding the time to digitize them all!

Funny, when I first read through Sonic Future I was like "... It's Zurg." Hehe.

... Yeah I'm gonna be really awkward for a while

I'm not dead!

I'm just... busy. I want to at least get a few background images out of my four (so far revealed) major IPs. Then it may be a good time to see about drawing some fanart. yupyup
