Yeah, it's pretty rare that any of these games actually...finish. That's why I never really said I would be a full-time spriter for any of them. I just throw in a sprite or two with no real hopes that the games will last. (Though, Carbon is still here but two of my sprites I know of are not used anymore, I have no clue about the others, and I'm still credited.
Though one new sprite is the same design as mine.)
I always enjoyed referring to him as HasselHoF in my head, but that's just me.
Separated or not, it seems to me like there just isn't many releases around these parts. Even if you've got your own forums and whatnot, just knowing that someone out there actually completed what they set out to do would boost morale. But yeah, the bigger the project, the longer it takes... =/
Would it be better if I called him Hoffie? (It seems everyone was busy in the summer, but not so much during schoool lol.)
I don't know if it would be a big achievement for PC, seeing as we've sorta separated ourselves from here with the HoF Forums. Though it will be a good game when it gets released as it's really expansive.
Which means it won't be out soon. x|
I keep forgetting there's HoF the game and HoF the person. I swear, I had to reread what you said twice before I got it. >_< But yeah, his determination is pretty impressive. My game almost died out completely just because I kept putting it down whenever I needed to, eventually progress just stopped altogether because I wasn't able to balance it with RL. Strangely, now that summer is over I find I have more time to dedicate to it. Hope to see HoF (the game, not the person!) get released soon, I think that would honestly be one of the biggest achievements for the PC community (that's right, the Pokecommunity community).
When I get busy I feel guilty about not visiting a place as often. I avoid things I'm guilty of. Therefore I'm guilty for not going on...so I avoid it more. It really sucks. xD; I don't mean to not announce I'm "leaving" because I never really meant to leave!
Yeah, drama sucks. I commend HoF for keeping us all together, but if I created a game I wouldn't deal with half the crap that people give him. My games, my rules, I don't need you. It's also because I always see the fan games as side projects where your life comes first. I've told HoF many times no one would feel bad if he put it down and focused on college so he wouldn't get stressed, but he still goes through with it.
I was under the impression that the HoF team had disbanded entirely.
It has been awhile; I sort of took an unannounced leave of absence from PC, wasn't much reason for me to stick around. Progress on my fangame has been slowly increasing, though, so I figured I'd stick around longer this time.
I got really busy and I felt bad about pixeling what I wanted because I have responsibilities at HoF. "Let's make a random trainer!" ... "I should be working on that Kay trainer sprite instead..."
Now during school I've got 3 art classes so I'm not going to expect to have much free time. I just like playing sprites while I can and not worry about HoF as 90% of the other members are also on a hiatus.
Oh yeah, I laughed because our lass conversation was in April.
What made you stop pixel arting in the first place? Your stuff is so good. D:
I'm split on the HG/SS stuff. On one hand, Claire no longer looks old and Lt. Surge is the manliest Gym Leader ever now. On the flip side, Sabrina looks really boring and Jasmine looks a little constipated... =/
