Had some pretty big changes since your last nosey, they could have their own page but I'll overview here in one - so let's catch up.
First off, I switched from developing the previous game you saw (you know the one found here), which wasn't an easy choice as it was pretty advanced for a prototype. But I knew it would have took too long for the work progression I have lined up.
So I've come up a new game, which in theory shouldn't take as long to develop - don't be fooled though, games take fucking forever to do. It's just that hopefully this one takes a little less forever to finish.
The bonus is that as far as I can see no one has made a game like it, so it should have that unique factor people are looking for. It's all very hush hush around here at the moment, but nearer the time I'll release some videos about it (unless it gets canned).
Silence Is Golden, But Your Eyes Still See
I've done away with comments on the YouTube videos for awhile, to test how important they are.
Now that might sound a little weird, so let me explain. If you haven't made videos and put them on the internet you might think it works like this :-
'You make a video, everyone shares their thoughts on what they saw in an intelligent way and those who disagree with any points you make, do so in a respectful and intelligent manner. Everyone is so grateful for viewing a video for free (but cost you to make) that they watch the adverts that enable it to be viewed for free and leave a like in appreciation. After all that we all remove our monocles and toast to living in such an excellent age where such things can happen, by raising our cups of tea and clinking them against each others.'
But you could not be more wrong. The world's number one social media platform YouTube, is well - not very social. The vast majority of people watching won't do anything. Not comment, like or share. They are fucking window lickers, not a problem if your only aim is to get eyes for YouTube's adverts. Although even making money with adverts is increasingly becoming difficult with the rise in shit cunts using questionable advert blocking software.
But of the comments you do get the decent ones are, again, vastly outstripped by garbage. It becomes a full time job ensuring the comments remain healthy. Removing the spammers and shit posters becomes a choir. So what can you do?
Well it's a no brainer, you do what I opened this chat with - you turn off the comments.
I've tested this well in advance and so far there has been a massive benefit to my work. So I can focus on what I enjoy doing and that's making videos.
As I mentioned, the army of shit cunts denying you the breadcrumbs adverts bring-in is growing, the self-entitled army of children who've never been told no, don't want to support the free videos they watch. And what Veruca Salt wants, Veruca Salt gets.
The solution here is simple - non-skippable ads. Ads that can't be blocked by any software. Obtrusive ads built into the videos.
This way I can piss into the eyes of the Veruca Salt self-entitled brats and make free videos at the same time. A giant horse piss, if you will.
B-b-b-but it will spoil the viewing experience.......
For those who want a viewing experience not obstructed by ads there is good news. I've installed a premium service, where for a tiny fee, you can watch my unique videos the way they were meant to be watched. It's a win-win for everyone.
You get a better experience than the scrubs and I can move away from the adverts on videos.
I think that's pretty much everything for now, I'll catch up with you next time you nosey bastard.
