08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

So we're now in 2017. Crazy, right? Feels like only yesterday when I set up my profile here, with the intention of posting everything about what is now known as Pokémon Order & Chaos.

Of course, I've posted other stuff as well. As a yugioh player I occasionally post stuff about it, but very rarely, and recently started up a more original indie game project, something I had wanted to do for a very long time.

So with the start of the new year comes the resolutions and so on... I'm not even sure I have any, but I know that I want to get more of Primal World out there. As a university student thinking about his future placement year, I feel it is far more crutial to get a portfolio up and running, with as much of my own original stuff as possible.

As for Pokémon Order & Chaos, it is still very much alive. However, its progress is very limited, I don't have as much time to work on it, nor do I feel it currently contributes anything towards my future - as much as it has played a very huge part in my growth as a game designer over the past 5 years, it doesn't play a part in my personal life.

And then there's YouTube. Holy hell, that felt like a bit of a blunder. I feel like I started up the channel at a really inconvenient time, thinking that I'd have at least a bit of spare time while I was at university, unfortunately my uni work cut that one short. Nevertheless, I do plan on reviving my Platinum Randomizer and, hopefully, doing some mapping livestreams for Pokémon Order & Chaos.

So as we sink into 2017, I don't particularly feel as though much can physically change around here, only time could possibly tell, but over the summer progress may start to pick up again, when I get more time off.

Lastly, as I wrap this up, are there any questions people would like to ask? If so, fire away.
