I started writing here almost a year ago, and for my own sake, I've tried to keep a schedule of posting something once a week, give or take a day. I'm actually somewhat proud that I've managed to keep to that schedule. Even lined up some posts to run autopilot during my honeymoon. So when I say no post this week, believe me that it is due to grand events ... that I cannot speak of.

I've been busy reading and thinking a lot about a hopefully upcoming project that's tremendously exciting for me personally. Very exciting, very consuming. Of course, in typical game industry style, I'd be out of line talking about it. I think there actually are some good reasons for being clandestine in the industry, but it still gets a bit excessive at times. I don't feel this is one of those times though, so please forgive the veiled statements.

Inspired by such, I'll actually be writing about the secrecy in the industry this weekend. And hopefully I'll be able to talk about the project before too long. And at some point in between, there will be great fanfare, trumpets and liver poisoning once DeathSpank is released.

Thanks for your interesting in these mad gibberings. Despite being glib, I really do appreciate that anyone takes the time to read what I have to say. More soon.

Here's my go at wild speculation about what Nels is up to:
1 - Crunching on Deathspank, then
2 - Announcing that he's starting his won indie company, which will go on to be the next Valve.
3 - ???

Secrets abound! I'll be waiting anxiously to hear about the mystery project.

In the meantime, let the wild speculation begin! My money is on a Battletoads reboot.

I like Ben's assessment.

Also, I look forward to your posts about industry secrets. People just don't share enough.
