Meanwhile I'm facing a mild and very transitory motivational dry spell.

As hinted at already- it's only mild and will probably not last long.

I have actually gotten work done despite this. No videos yet but two optional events have been done and I'm geared to begin work on another.

There's only five left for the Icons specifically.

Pep has one to go.
Svoli's are all done.
Kara's are all done.
Rolly's are all done.
Tristy's are all done.
Lyza has one to go, and only really less than half of it.
Nola has one to go.
Wizard's are all done.
Limbo's are all done.
Tiramisa's are all done.
Esperia has one to go.
Fyori has one to go.

Once all are done I'll start working on each Planet's story arc that is laid out via several optional events.

Zen Nekoma has a story largely thought out already courtesy of RiseDemos. We'll largely be assisting Kloe and Nanianne in their efforts to thwart the followers of Xeltara and repopulate the Nekomata. During which we'll make plenty of new friends.

Zen Aneia's storyline was mostly told during the events of the main story, but Morzan remains curious, you'll venture there with Cathy, Renae and Zephyrra to treat with L'soiv D'pes- it's own Regent Lady.

Fungaris will be a small adventure with Rolly and Limbo to find some particular fungus, each for their own reasons.

Esoteriqueois will be a quest where Sacreblu has a good talk with Lilith and perhaps some crazier stuff.

The Purple Sun attracts brilliant minds, Tristy, Fyori and Koko keenly- an unusual alliance to uncover the arcane city's secrets.

Byteopia and Postmartia will be large adventures with Cid Gungho, Kyu Lawlis and Kikiyo Kasanavi

Tekerlek will be a large Space Pirate Monkey adventure with Captain Crikey and his crew.

Nadine will be "date" kind of adventure with Fyori.

Draik will be the redemption of Trimorphous and the reordering of the draikonians. Allies in this venture will be Kara and Kiet Marx

Spriteopia won't be unlocked until Mad E Lin's optional event chain in Disk 3.

Galaxia will be an adventure between several characters, Notably Tac, Lyza, Mayeena, Orsa and Adashi.

Pink Sun will be an adventure with Sacreblu who seeks to confront herself in the past.

Zirkov will be a hangout adventure with Xaramitsi... yes.

Haven will largely focus on Yasondre and her hibernation.

Gaseous will have a small adventure with Safael (probably not until disk 3)

The Blue Sun will be a small quest with Sacreblu.

Desolation will be a quest hub for various alternations of adventure...

Mycallah will take you to Lepusia and show you around and perhaps a quest or two.

Likewise, the other faithful on Desolation will take you to Solaris Archivium, Esoteriqueois and (in Disk 3) Dysmonia respectively.

Mayeena will go on an adventure with you to Xeraphar.

Urania will be more hanging with Xaramitsi

Esperia will go on an infiltration mission on Xoraq

more details are still being worked out.

I just watched this 2021 experimental film called Infinitum: Subject Unknown.
It has Ian "Gandalf" McKellen in it...technically...for like a minute.

It's really boring to watch. I couldn't watch it in one sitting. I kept pausing and coming back to it. But I respect it from a technical standpoint because it more or less has only 1 character. I kept watching because it's kind of similar to my Perseverance fan game and I was hoping to see how they handled the same pitfalls of character goals in a realm of "infinite possibilities".

I'm going to spoil what it's about.
Basically this "subject" (she's called Jane in the credits) is suggested at the end to be a hypothetical construct, a possibility, in some kind of quantum dimension that occasional overlaps with other possibilities. I'm not sure if it's meant to be in a computer simulation or not. But there is a lot of static and electronic humming. It's really obnoxious. Just filling time. Possibly meant to keep the viewers attention with meaningless weirdness, but I was already checked out within 10 minutes. lol. Occasionally it jumps back to these documentary clips, outlining vaguely what their experiment involves. But never stating what their objectives are.
It started out like a documentary type thing with Ian McKellen giving a brief history of their research and an exciting break through. Something something human mind. Parallel universes. Infinite possibilities.
I got the impression it was involving some DMT acid trip, and maybe one of the scientists was meant to channel Terence McKenna. Just me reading between the lines here. Or maybe I'm meant to fill in the gaps however I like? Like Dark Souls Lore, the gaps are pretty big it just looks like poor writing. Actually I read that it was a mix of concepts that wasn't meant to be publicly released. Concepts like jumping between realities.

Anyway, Subject Jane wakes up trapped in a room tied to a chair. We know from the camera technique that she's being observed and there's occasional voices of scientists making comments about her. She may or may not hear them. Whenever she get's stressed out, time will reset and she'll be back in the room, tied to a chair.
It's a very slow progression. Finding her way out of an attic. Into a cluttered house. Eventually making it outside and then to the research facility. Occasionally sounds of phantom soldiers with dogs, helicopters, guns, and search lights will manifest. Stressing her out and she'll start over again. Sometimes encountering echoes or parallel versions of herself.
She eventually sets a goal for herself to head towards "Wytness" Research lab. This motivation was pretty weak if you ask me. There's just an envelope in a car with the address. Maybe she can hear the scientists. Or remembers something? It's not clear if she has amnesia. It's not clear why she gets spooked and hides like a feral cat at times. All this random weirdness, I think they staged these...idk, emotional shifts...frustration, fear, anger...to give the audience a taste of something different. For the sake of stimulation.
I had the thought that maybe "Wytness" was some sort of metaphor for the "Audience". But again, I'm just filling in the gaps of the narrative and I hate to give credit that's owed to my own imagination.
She eventually gets to the research lab. Kind of, maybe, realizes the situation she's in? She rarely vocalizes her thoughts. She has more encounters with parallel versions of herself. A few versions seem to die of fright when they get too close (the credits claim no doppelgangers were harmed in the film). One version actually talks to her, saying she exists as the "possibility of being lost", nothing more. She'll keep finding her way back to this place. Which contradicts what some of the scientists voices were saying about expanding her abilities. I got a hint of "Lost Girl" or "Girl Interrupted". Maybe this was a schizo version of herself.
After this, uh...answer that we've been waiting the past hour and a half to reach, she steps into a dark door with some kind of unearthly demon shadow beast. She falls back and shuts the door. Then you hear the scientist voices again "Disconnecting the subject in 3 2 1..." She looks back at that camera, as if she can hear this too. She was already scared, but this is somehow different. Then the credits.

Maybe it was some nihilist horror, that even after realizing the infinite possibilities in front of her, she was just...idk, part of a simulation? The possibilities are endless but "Wytness" is maybe being selective; using her to pruning/manifest those realities, or only allowing her to live (in their minds? computer? simulation?) so long as she's entertaining. Just my interpretation anyways.

Unfortunately there's not a lot I can take away from this.

I made a slime battler for a request this morning. Mostly just playing around for practice. I'm honestly surprise someone didn't ask for a slime sooner. Then again Rpg Maker Web's resource request is a glorified human search engine these days.

I was just about to post the other day that RMMZ was overdue for their v1.5 update.
Then they rolled it out at the last minute on June 1st.

I spent most of my free time yesterday updating my test project from 1.3
Of course with MZ it's just a click of a button. But I filled the core scripts of my main test project with comments. So I was going through copying my notes over.

In one day recently I finished Lyza's finale and Nola's finale optional events. This leaves only Pep's finale, Fyori's finale and Esperia's finale.

I did not record videos of these and now don't have the ability to due to my computer finally bricking itself. Not to worry, I was able to back up my game before it was done in for good, and all of my other stuff was backed up in full only a couple of months ago.

I still have a laptop for work and will utilize it once I've moved in- and yes. I am moving into a new place tomorrow and once again will be independent! I intend to work heavily on dynamism in my art (meaning drawing a lot of comics, character interactions and so on) a long with increasing my range with voice acting. Expect some self-made comic dubs in the near future.

I've completely checked out from game development stuff.
It's not burnout. Just a hiatus. I've just be binging shows and playing games trying to catch up with current stuff. I'm not sure when I'll get back into things.

This is unsettling. It's been over a month now, my mind has just been in a completely different place. It's like my muse is a runaway cat.
It's been missing for weeks before, but it always came back. Now I feel like I need to start looking for it.
Is it dead? Can muses die? H.P. Lovecraft wrote that with strange aeons, even death may die.
I might have to resort to some dark magic to get it back.
