Well I totally screwed up my estimates as to how long this episode was going to take. I ended up needing about 250% the time I thought I would. In my defense though, this is actually the longest video I’ve made to date, clocking in a little over 30 minutes, so you may want to watch it in chunks. I tried to edit it down to just the stuff I wanted to say, but there was a lot of it. Besides Strife, I also cover some of Doom, MIDI music, FPS design and control in general, so there’s a lot in here. In any event, if you like the other Game Dungeon episodes, you should like this one too. I think the pacing on it is pretty good, despite the length.
Seeing as how my time estimates were as bad as usual, I’m giving no estimate on the next episode other than I’ll get to it as soon as I can. I plan on making a few more Game Dungeon episodes, then I’ll be returning to Freeman’s Mind. If you’re coming only for Freeman’s Mind, maybe check back in a month? Also I’m going to do everything I can to get completely caught up on email sometime this month, I’m still woefully behind on that.
More stuff coming!
EDIT: I’m wrong, CarnEvil was longer than this, but not a lot.
