Titles Are Hard

I'm going to be honest (and if it was hard to tell, in terms of blog posts we're usually not much of anything at all), I don't want it to be Christmas yet.

It's not that I don't like the holiday. I love it! It's one of my favorite times of the entire year. The lights, the opportunity to make the people around you happy with a thoughtful or silly gift. The weather not so much, unless you don't have to go anywhere. But personally, I rarely go anywhere, and here we are, T-minus just over six hours from the big day (here on the west coast, at least) and I haven't laid eyes on a snowflake since probably our last blog post. So that's not what has me dreading the passage of time.

See, the downside to Christmas finally getting here is that the buildup to the big day lasts so much longer than the main event itself. That there's such a crescendo during Christmas The Season, and once Christmas The Day gets here, before you even know it it's already over. And then everything, the lights, the cheer and whatever goodwill towards men that man was able to scrounge up this year, all of that is on its way out.

But that's just the way things are. And I know, I know, if Christmas never left, then it would never be able to arrive, either. But it's just so hard to feel the spirit of it all these days. Does anyone else feel like it's getting harder and harder to feel very much of anything at all? Wait, don't answer that. That was a rhetorical question. And you didn't come here for rambling, you here for a check of a pulse, if I had to make a guess.

It's to that end that I'm here to say that yes, we are still making progress towards completing the game that we set out to make, what feels like an unsettlingly long time ago. Do I wish we could go faster? That everyone had more free time and energy and less of just life getting in the way? Sure. But I enjoy what we're doing. And we do it in the hope that some day, you might enjoy it too.

From all of us at Airheart Interactive, we wish you a merry Christmas, a happy new year, and the best for every and any other opportunity you might take to celebrate. I'll leave you with just a few little things to hopefully tide you over, until next time.
