    So, I recently started a new semester in University and one of my classes is Introduction to Women Studies. We recently watched a documentary called “Tough Guise” that talked about men, violence and the media.

    It begins by talking that boys learn early on that they have to behave in a certain way in order to be considered a “real man”. They have to be strong, tough, in control, muscular, intimidating, etc. in order to be considered one and if they don’t fit this bill, then they’ll be called “unmanly”, “wuss”, “wimp” and other words with a much for offensive meaning which I’ll refrain to say. The fear of being an outcast and being called these names keep boys and men locked into this narrow box and as a result, they try to conform to this idea of what a guy “should be” as a survival mechanism.

    So… Christmas is early, but you only get half of your presents.

    Now that I’ve completely recovered from my illness, I’ve realized that there’s no way I can finish Guen 2 by the end of the year like I’d hoped. So I’ve gone ahead and uploaded the first half (scenes 1-7). Sorry for the lack of narrative closure, but I hope you enjoy what’s there. I’m still working steadily on the second half, just don’t know how long it will take.

    You heard it here first. Unless you’re on the CoG forum, or following someone who is, in which case you maybe heard it here second. Anyway. I’m going to put a post on the newarcana blog tomorrow probably.

    The link is still the same. Thanks, as always, for playing! Feedback is very much appreciated.

I only ask because DA:I is coming up around the corner and I'm hoping the release dates don't clash because otherwise I'm going to have a super hard time deciding which one to play first >.< Please don't make me have to pick! D:

    sonnet009games:

    Hi there!

    Okay, first of all: Wow. Like, WOW. That you would even possibly maybe consider it a toss-up between Aloners and DA:I is, like, the most amazing compliment I can imagine.

    Secondly, I don’t want to go throwing around release dates I can’t stick to. But! I will say that the current schedule tentatively — TENTATIVELY — says Aloners should be ready in early November, before DA:I. Of course, anything could change — the testing period may need to run longer, meaning a later release. I don’t know yet.

    But, believe me, I’m also hoping to get this game out there before it’s time to go back to Thedas. Fingers crossed!
