I literally haven't had much to say outside of my videos and ramblings on Twitter, thus why there haven't been any news updates here in awhile. To that end, go watch Ancient DOS Games! Go watch Shovelware Diggers! Go follow me on Twitter! DO ALL THE THINGS! 8D

...and if you're reading this, you must be a super-awesome fan because you actually pay attention to my website. ;)

Click here to watch the first episode of Shovelware Diggers!

It has begun! The new weekly series to help pass the time and give you guys more stuff to watch! :D

Shovelware Diggers is a show dedicated to unearthing games which have pretty much been completely lost to the stretches of time as no one ever really played them or gave them any cares. Such games could often be found burried in the depths of shareware CDs claiming to have tons and tons of games. One particular archive I have is a "2000 Hit Games" collection put out by Softkey Publishing and I figured I'd share the experience of what it's like to go through one of these things! ;)

The way it works is people who are pledging $8 or more per month over on Patreon are automatically eligible to submit their folder selections for me to cover on the show. I have the ENTIRE directory structure outlined here on my website which you can look at by clicking here. Each digger may have up to 12 folders selected at a time so that all diggers have a chance for their selections to show up! (I will do my best to balance the load between all diggers!)

Anyways, this is likely going to be my last news post here on the website for awhile. I'm still going to be active on Twitter and YouTube and whatnot, but with all the migration I'm doing the website will mostly become an archive of these things until I once again get back into the swing of game making, which will hopefully be soon. :)

Click here to watch Ancient DOS Games Filler #54 - Slime Rancher

So, apart from a new filler video, the changes to the website have begun! I'm now on Twitter (@Pixelmusement), additional information sections have begun transitioning to YouTube, and there's a new section for the upcoming Shovelware Diggers show!

Lots going on and since I've been working so hard at all of this since yesterday I'm going to keep this short so I can enjoy the rest of my evening and have some time to myself for the weekend. You can learn more about what's going on too by watching the results video to the survey I announced back in May, which you can find by clicking here!

Really lucky I managed to get this out on time... and since I'm really freaking tired, I'm going to bed. Enjoy the video, everyone! :)

Click here to watch Ancient DOS Games Episode 189 - Strife
(WARNING! This is a mature rated episode!)

Geeze... the past week has been extraordinarily stressful due to random dog noise issues 24 hours a day which are impossible to sleep through due to the volume. I'm very surprised I managed to get the live action footage I needed recorded without said dog ending up in the background. x_x;

In any case, for those of you reading this, there's going to be some changes to the ADG section of the website over the next week or so, as I'm transitioning all of the additional information over to YouTube and will be removing the video pages from my website. The reason I'm doing this is because my survey showed that there wasn't a huge amount of care for looking up these details on the website, and quite frankly, it takes an HOUR to update the video pages every time I upload a new video, so I'd rather save myself the trouble and make things more convenient for everyone. :B

There's other changes coming too but nothing which will affect the show itself, so don't worry about that! As for my secret project... sigh... Story of my life how every time I work on a project which feels like it will be spectacular, something comes up which derails the whole process. As it stands, I've been shifting my effort towards my videos and I haven't had time to work on my game, but this shift has been dictated primarily by my own personal situation and wasn't entirely my choice either, but it was either that, or allow the forces pulling the strings to guide me in even worse directions.

If that sounds vague an ominous, the reality is that if I say too much about what's going on, I run the risk of derailing myself further. Once my situation has stabilized and no one's pulling any strings anymore, I'll be able to open up about what's happening. For the moment, I just have to do the best I can given the situation I'm in and hope that everything ultimately works out.

Also, since this weeek's ADG episode is mature rated, the hint for the next episode is: It's a game with the EXACT same name as another game I've already covered, yet is completely different!
