Hope to see you soon (again)

I started this blog at the beginning of 2013 while finishing my ph.D. stay in Rennes (France). I did it as a self-motivation boost and because I thought it could be useful for myself to keep track of my progress and discoveries. And for some time, the effort it took to maintain the blog was really worth it. However, I must be honest to you and to myself: this blog is kind of abandoned, and I don't think this is going to change in the near future.

This is why I think that the most correct action is to say goodbye. I don't intend to close or delete its contents as it contains information that can be useful either for me or for others. But I won't be writing more posts on this blog, not at least in the short term. In fact, this has already been the case for some time. During the last months, the number of posts has been decreasing and it kind of hurts me having a supposedly active blog without recent posts. I need this closure to move forward.

During the time I've been writing this blog, lots of nice things have happened to me: I finished my ph.D., I published a couple of games on Android and iPhone, I co-founded a video games studio, I got married and I published my first PC game on Steam: Breaking Fast.

Now, I have nice projects ahead and I'll continue writing about game development, but I'll keep the posts in the scope of the concrete games I'll be developing by the time. In particular, you'll be able to read me on Tale Studios blog.

Thanks a lot to those of you who have been reading the posts until the very end. I hope that some of the posts gave you insight into game development and helped you in some degree.

Good luck with your projects and hope to see you soon!
