Hey there. I'm a waning 30-something who very much enjoys retro computer/video game junk. I'm also occasionally political, definitely on the "left" side of the spectrum and while I will CW, if you don't like people who get mad at white people (I'm white, so take that with the bag of salt it requires), maybe avoid me.
Most of the time I just like talking about nostalgic stuff though, and sometimes I'll ramble on about philosophical nonsense.
Also, I have eight(8)[VIII] cats.
Kickstarter will always be a gamble. I'm encouraged by the fact that this campaign has raised over 1/3 of its goal in less than 12 hours, but I do worry that it will lose steam as the number of actual fans out there that haven't yet backed it dwindles. I mean, that said, never underestimate the link-sharing fervor of die-hard shmup fans. I've already seen a flurry of excited posts from areas of the Internet that normally stay quiet. People WANT this game to happen, and to be good.
The campaign video is full of prerendered bullshots (that's why the "gameplay" movement is weird), so that's something to consider, but...I was so sad when R-TYPE "died." I admit knowing that a lot of the III, Delta and Final 1 crew are on the team helps. If anyone *can* pull it off, they can.

A couple years ago, Jessi fell in love with this cute concrete dragon at a Ren Faire stand. His name is Angus.
We bought it in a color that was out of stock, so I had to go back later in the week to pick it up. Jessi was at work when I brought Angus home, so I sent her photos of Angus hanging out or getting in trouble around the house. Drinking was out of the toilet is probably my favorite. 😄 #PixelFed #photos #dragons
Meanwhile I forgot mother's day and my mom is 70. I didn't get her anything because I have no money. I almost forgot my Dad's birthday, and didn't get him anything either.
I have to find a way to salvage all of this by myself. No one is going to help me. I just don't know how I'm going to do it. But I'm going to try. That's all I can do, I guess.
Bad pain day. I think a lot of that has to do with the fact we are out of financial buffer and from here on in will be going into debt, the two people that mean the most to me in the world are in depression spirals, my already underweight cat who is not old but not young either is sick and refusing to eat just four days before his dental work, and fixing all of this requires literally thousands of dollars I do not have in addition to being in the red on our bills.
