Operation Eclipse

WOW things are happening (and I haven’t blogged about any of them)…

First, important book news:

I have been rejected by a lot of agents.

I am still querying.

I know I’m probably not supposed to talk about the querying process, but YOLO or something. And truth be told, there haven’t been that many and some of them have been kind enough to offer suggestions or advice which is greatly appreciated.

Second:

I made a m*****-f****** videogame!*

My friend from Silverstring Media and I wrote Operation Eclipse:

Queer cyberpunk hacker RPG about a genderqueer POC caught up in violent corporate warfare, who must discover why they’ve had their memories wiped, find safety, and decide what to do now in the face of multiple opposing interests. Somewhat inspired by Deus Ex’s approach to puzzles with multiple solutions, focusing especially on social engineering. This upload is “Act 1.”

*Alright it’s just the first act of a videogame, but we made it for Global Game Jam this year. So not bad considering we only took 48 hours.

Now I know you’re wondering “But that was in January, where have you been since then?”

First, don’t take that tone with me. And second I quit my job and started an intense coding bootcamp. When I say intense, I mean INTENSE (12 hours a day, 5-6 days a week). The great thing is that I’m building a lot of cool things (which I will post from time to time). The downside is that I haven’t had ANY time to do ANYTHING.

I’m in week seven now, so I only have another 2 weeks before it’s all over and I hope to get back to my writing…

IN THE MEANTIME check out┬ámy midterm project that my team built in only 5 days after only 4ish weeks of coding experience. It’s a medical screening reminder app called ProdMinder that takes a person’s age and gender and not only recommends which tests and how often you should get those tests, but also offers to send out SMS or email reminders.
