Hey Kassoon,

You're last dev logs is now almost 2 months old. I've been regularly checking to see whether anything is new is up, but didn't want to write anything, because I don't want to put any pressure on you. You have every right to stop making this game, if it isn't working for you. I just wanted to ask whether you have any plans about it.

Cheers,

Toad

I'm going to continue to work on it, but these past 2 months are the only "break" I've taken from it in the past 4 years. I wanted to work on the D&D tools for a while instead since they were getting more popular. The D&D site has become much more successful in less time and less work, so it's going to continue to be a priority for me going forward.  However, I'm not sure how high the ceiling on it is since it's all pretty much a hobbyist market right now. On the other hand, indie games are in a really bleak place right now as well that is likely to only get worse with time.

That said, I have been working on RL2 every day typically for about an hour or two, but haven't put a new build up because it's been mostly optimization work and I'm worried people will be expecting more from an update after a long hiatus and so wanted to get a "flashier" feature done first. Certain tools for the site have also acted as prototypes for a feature in RL2. I'm currently trying to figure out how I want to split my time, and how much "legs" the D&D tools have. I understand that games aren't popular until they're finished, but the motivational forces of 30,000 people telling you to do A and ~10 to 100 people telling you to do B are awkward.

Good to hear that you are still working on it. I was just wondering what was going on after you suddenly stopped writing about it. You've done an amazing job so far, and I'll be looking forward to seeing new RL2 updates. On the other hand, if the D&D tools are working better for you (because they are more successful and/or more fun), then it makes sense to concentrate on them. Personally, I’m fine with waiting a bit longer for the full game.
