Hey guys, it’s time for the next Dark Side of Gaming episode and a few updates!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you’re all enjoying the new true story videos, (more horrific murders coming soon) but if you prefer the Classics – no worries – one will be here by next weekend. The story I’ve been working on is one of the longest yet; it started off with over 11,000 words, and it’s finally almost finished! Once published, I’ll be able to get Classics out on a semi-regular schedule again.
I have commissions lined up for the next several weeks, but as soon as the shows I’m scripting go on break – I’ll be back to the usual routine. Along with The Dark Side of Gaming, I’m writing for two other shows which will be announced in the coming weeks. I’m very excited about both and can’t wait to share the news with you!
As far as my personal series – the next installment of Infinity Game and the Backroads sequel are my priorities, and hopefully, the extended edition of The Settlement Series (Book 1) will be ready for publishing in 2023! The first eight chapters will always remain available for free – the book version will simply include additional details throughout the adventure. Likewise – the chapters for Book 2 will be handled in the same way.
I’m enjoying these opportunities to just talk like the good ole days, so, since most of you have your own blogs and projects, I wanted to take a moment to tell you about the AI art apps I use – Nightcafe and Starryai. Maybe they can help some of you the way they’ve helped me.
For those who – like myself – may lack any and all ability to express yourselves through drawing – these programs are amazing! And most importantly – free. They have “pro” options available, but I’m poor and get by without paying a dime. If you use them – simply make sure to select “coherent” style on Nightcafe and “Orion” on Starryai – trust me; it’s a massive difference.
If anyone wants to see the bulk results – I started a Deviantart to store the keepers, but I’ll add an example of something from each. It doesn’t do so well with people, so I’ve struggled to make an avatar, but landscapes and monsters seem to do great. Honestly, even if you don’t need art for anything – it’s fun to use.
I suppose that’s all the updates for now; thanks again, and stay safe out there! People are freaking nuts! Speaking of which – Black Phone was a fantastic movie – highly recommended!
