I'm rewriting how major mutations work in the next game today. I think the new way will simplify a lot of things and will be much more fun.

Have you ever had one of those days where you have 5 things to do and you barely finished item #1?

Due to some recent additions, my debug builds on the next game were taking around 4 1/2 minutes to load. On Friday, I got that down to 1 minute (release build is like 6 seconds).

I've added knockback to certain skills and all explosions for the next game. It's fun to blow up a fireball in the middle of a group of enemies and watch them get pushed by the explosion.

Being an introvert, I pretty much just post things for our fans. So what would you all like to hear more about?

Have you given much thought to a new engine, or are you going to keep iterating on this one for the foreseeable future?

Also, what are your favorite recent non-soldak games?

Do you work on your games full time or do you do other work to supplement Soldak?

The short answer is yes, I've considered other engines many times. I think I'm going to blog about this some time soon.

I've been really busy the last year so I'm still working through my backlog. The games I have played the most lately is Pillars of Eternity, Grim Dawn, and King's Bounty.

I'm still full-time at Soldak, although that is becoming harder to do.

Working on tax stuff today. Some of the taxes we have to do early each year: payroll taxes (941), W3 & W2s, 1096 & 1099 forms, state unemployment (C-3), federal unemployment (940), company income taxes (1120S), and personal taxes.
