How very strange time can be! I thought I had just posted my last Creatures update a few days ago, yet suddenly an entire month flew by! Life has been extremely busy for me, yet I’m thankful that Creatures is a game series that can easily be picked up whenever time allows. Time has not allowed me much spare time, although all is going very well! I had an absolutely wonderful birthday, which took me back to the one celebration when I was introduced to Creatures 1. Things have been very quiet from me lately, yet I hope everyone understands! I normally have a rather erratic spare time schedule, which means that Creatures can sometimes take a backseat while other slightly more important things take up my time.
The bad news is that I’m not sure when I will have a lot of free time in August to devote to Creatures. That doesn’t mean I’m disappearing entirely, if I can help it! The Discover Albia Forum will continue to be active, and I plan to ensure that the August Creatures Challenges are in place this week. I hope to get back to watching over my Norns and Grendels as soon as possible, while also diving into some more lessons. There is most certainly a very bright future ahead! Sometimes, though, it takes a little time away before things can start going again. I’m still here, though, and I’ll catch up with everyone soon!
On a somewhat related note, there is a video game coming out in August that has me quite intrigued. Likely any free time I stumble across will be devoted to giving it a whirl. I feel a little guilty about making Creatures play second fiddle, but the games have stood the test of time. Although I have taken many breaks throughout the years, I have never failed to return to the world of Albia! I think that’s one of the best things about Creatures: There aren’t any issues about taking a break, and returning to play after weeks or months feels wonderful. I’m sure I’ll get there! In the end, it all boils down to having fun, being happy, and enjoying life. All the best to you all: I’ll be back before you know it!
