Dev blog #36 – So, about those changes

As I have been saying for the last few weeks, things have been changing in my life. The big change I have been hinting at is a change of job. Actually a complete change of industry and profession! I am no longer going to be a software tester, but am going back to my first love, theatre. I am going to be the Operations Manager at the Classic Theatre Company in Auckland, New Zealand.

What does this mean for Sky Bear Games? Well actually, hopefully it’s going to be a good thing, because my new boss wants me to create games to promote the upcoming programme on the website. Sometimes they might just be little quiz like games, like the game for Sherlock Holmes coming later this year. But the next production after the current one is Alice in Wonderland. Obvious crossover there, right? I am going to be creating a new free chapter for Wonderland Nights. The concept artist for the show is going to be Rose, so the style will be continuous there.

I am also hoping that it will give me greater access to voice actors, and perhaps give James an opportunity to develop the roleplaying webseries he’s been thinking about for years. But more about that later.

Life continues as normal behind all the huge changes. I’m making improvements to the translation builds for Wonderland Nights, putting in the voice work and code changes for Nine Lives and getting ready for the translations there, and James is plugging away at Dragons of Tirenia, reaching 88,000 words now! Coming this week we’ve got the next Dragonlance review and the next podcast episode going up. So don’t worry, we’re going to keep going 🙂
