They joy of development is gone. The gravity has shifted, the resting point is no longer in the game. There is no resting point anymore, just repulsive forces away from here. Maybe someday a new resting/gravity point will form somewhere else for him (job/wife/kids). Or magically it will be this game again, though this can take years or may never happen.

.,.

I think the best thing we can to is lay the game to rest. Disarm it. Abandon all expectations. Find peace. This was all out of the control of anyone. In a way inevitable.
Sadly, I fear you are right. I am surprised this view is not discussed more.

My guess is that Josh will soon return to school to complete his degree. That move would firmly place LT on a back burner though, in effect, LT is already on a back burner.

A return to school would help Josh restore balance and direction to his life. I think school's the right move for Josh and I think that's what he'll do. LT can wait.

Yeah, that is probably a good idea. I assume the school will have regular lectures and assignements, and this will make work-life-sleep balanced.

It will also provide a needed and achievable goal that can't be delayed (exams)

I don't know about anyone else, but my work-life-sleep pattern was anything but balanced when I was in college....

The college sleep balance exists. It's just different from the boring 9-5 routine most adults are used to.

I had a balanced sleep schedule while in University.

Granted, it involved sleeping through half the lectures, but it worked. :mrgreen:

Ahem guys, you're missing a key point:

Emphasis mine.

In university, the work-life-sleep balance is like the good-cheap-fast balance.

Good to hear you are doing a bit better Josh, keep it up.

My suggestion, though I acknowledge I know relatively little about this, is to just release the prototype publicly to all backers and followers alike and then to move on to do something else. Literally whatever else you like and forget about this chapter of your life for the time being.

Maybe someday you'll come back and work on this project again, who knows. But I doubt you'll get anywhere if you force yourself into it.

Best of luck, and maybe you can join us over on the Infinity Quest for Earth forums for another Wolf Game at some point!

from what i know is he working, he's just not writing updates.

maybe alternating work on LT with work on his mind, but LT is not hibernating, its just silent, lurking in the shadows, preparing....

Hey guys, haven't been around for a while and am way behind on the forums. My participation was always spotty at best anyways. Some one fill me in on Josh and the LT universe? Anything that we know that isn't in this forum thread?

From what I can tell, Josh is feeling much better (for which I'm very thankful. I don't know him personally but he has shared a little of his soul with us over the past couple of years.)

I also see that work on LT has resumed at a less fevered pace... Also a good thing.

Is that the gist of it?

Yep, you nailed it!

That's pretty much all of it. Josh has visited the forms and IRC a little bit and has made a few posts. Nothing new has really been shared. Josh said that he is working on LT at a healthy pace every day.

Other than that we just don't know what specific features he's working on or how many features he needs to complete till release. I'd guess that my list of features thread is still partially relevant. I'll update it once I know that a feature has been worked on.

I've only really been active on your Youtube channel previously, but with all that's been happening I made an account here to wish you all the best, and I look forward to seeing how the rest of the development goes!
