breaks and relaxation

its amazing how much you put into this game

but its also worrying with how sudden a burnout can come on a person who gives so much 

so my suggestion is to remember to take a break every now and then, just relax, go have a walk, trow some bread or stones at some ducks, hell ... kick a puppy if you are into that or get a massage i dunno 

just remember to take some you time, even if you think that making this is a hobby for you with how much you are doing it wouldn't surprise me if you had a burnout of this hobby anyway

and starting again after a burnout will be hard no matter how much of a break you got, so don't forget to take care of yourself

i am sure most of the players can wait a few extra days since they know this is your dream and you will be back anyway

@Ashardalon3, completely agree with you!

Cynapse is making a wonderful game and considering he's doing that with only his solo brain & coding knowledge and just two hands it's far far more than anyone can expect.  Wish there was such a game when I was a kid. And it's not a rush in the slightest, any bugfix or update can surely wait. :)

P.S. Ducks are dangerous, better not to mess with them (video): https://vk.com/video?z=video305181610_456239777%2Fpl_cat_updates

I appreciate the concern :) Axu has been in development for around four years now. During that time I've definitely pushed myself too hard at times, and that's probably due to my OCD, and my need to address issues as soon as possible. I've been through a couple bad burnouts, but always make it back! I try to make time for rest, especially after a string of releases. 

Well we appreciate all the work and time you have put in to this awesome game so far.

Yes we do. I finally found time for a good run through with my latest character. Good times. Thank you Cynapse !

"kick a puppy"

If this is what needs to happen I'll look the other way.
