Expanding PT. First game for 2016. Steam?

     Been working on finishing up my upcoming horror game "Potato Thriller". A game I have been talking about for a while now here on the blog. A game I have been developing on and off in my free time since October. In my previous blog posts and I think in my YouTube vlog update I kept saying that I planned on having this game out for sure before the end of this year. Before the end of 2015.

As you can see by the title of this post. That is going to change.

     I guess this is both a bad thing and a good thing. (More like a who cares thing actually). Anyway, as I continue to develop this game and wrap things up, I feel like this game has more potential then what it started off as. I actually want to continue to expand this game and add more to it as well and polish it up more until I am satisfied with it. So I just wanted to post this update to say that I will not have Potato Thriller finished and released by the end of 2015 like I promised. Instead, this will be my first game release for 2016. Early 2016. I have actually already added a lot more new things to Potato Thriller since my last blog update. More updates coming soon.

     For a while now I have been planning on getting into steam as a developer. I actually recently just got a steam account. To be honest, I was never much of a pc gamer but mostly a console gamer. But there are a lot of great games that are pc only, especially indie games. Steam is a very popular platform obviously and they have a lot of cool stuff on there. I feel like I am missing out sometimes. So as I just said, I have finally got my own steam account. I recently purchased Resident Evil Revilations 2 on there. Unfortunately my laptop is kinda weak sauce and could not run it all that good. Anyway, back on topic. I was thinking of maybe putting "Potato Thriller" up on steam and trying to get it greenlit? I don't really know yet. Do you guys want to see it up on steam maybe? I'm kinda nervous actually about this decision since I don't really know how people will react towards Potato Thriller. It's a pretty weird game even for my standards. I don't know yet. I think I will take a chance, throw it on steam and see how things go. If it gets geenlit awesome. If not, then its not the end of the world. More updates on this later on I guess.

Youtube Updates? 
 As for my YouTube channel, I do want to continue to be more active there (even though I only put up 1 vlog update since my last blog post) I have been busy with my real life job and working on Potato Thriller on the side. A person can only do so much in a day. I actually, did record a new vlog update almost a week ago. I never got to editing that. I prob will not get that one out now anyway. I had a new vlog about my game but things have changed since then. So, I will prob record a different updated vlog later on. Also, like I said previously. I want to start doing lets plays of some indie games. I will definitely get into that. I recorded my first lets play not to long ago. I need to get that edited and then I should have it up soon on my channel.

Anyway, just wanted to post this blog update. Talk about whats going on. This might be my last blog post for 2015. Maybe. I don't know. Maybe not. I don't know about a lot of things yet. If it is, I hope everyone has a happy new year and I will see you in 2016! :D

More coming soon! Stay tuna!
