I’ve been doing a little bit of work on the site, refreshing the content on the static pages (mostly making it sillier), adding a contact page (that I might soon come to regret) and paying a little bit of money to sort out the roboticshed.com URL properly so that all the internal links are the same rather than the unfortunate mess they were before. I believe any direct links to old blog entries or pages will automagically link to the new place so no one needs to change anything.
The changes should mean that the WordPress stats now work a lot better so I’ll be able to tell exactly where any visitors to the site originally came from (Hello people searching for Project Zomboid on Google). If you are a webdesignery person and you have any tips on things my site absolutely must have immediately then feel free to comment below or tweet at me.
Free Company development continues in between exam invigilation sessions, the first pass at the ‘overgamey’ stuff I talked about below is nearly wrapped up. The campaign shop looks like this now:
That shop again
Lots of fun bugs and stuff still to tackle in the months ahead.

And the lights come on.
This is intended to be the space into which I pour the written accounts of my experiences creating indie videogames, an activity which I hope to one day become a way of paying for beer and a mortgage. Unfortunately, for this brilliant plan to work I still need to do a few things:
1) Make an indie videogame.
2) Persuade people to buy it for money.
I’m pretty sure that having a blog is an important step too though so I guess I should go and have some beers to celebrate getting this part done. If you want to know something about who the heck I am, or rather what I did before this, then feel free to pop over to the about page and err.. read it. It’s whimsical! If you’ve got any tips on how to make a wordpress blog five hundred times better then drop me a line in the comments and I’ll consider your sage words.
So why System of Pleasure?
Well it sounds a bit rude, a bit philosophical and its also a sort of description of a game. Thats probably as decent a summing up of my ‘essence’ as you are going to get in a phrase.
