... Where did Order of the Midnight Sun go?
3J took all his stories down. He said he didn’t feel they were up to his standards anymore.
Awh! But I liked that game. >.<
All of my stories were written before I was 16 years old. They were mostly linear, mostly fraught with typos / annoying game structures, and were generally poorly written. I think I had some creative ideas -- for my age -- and I think I did a pretty impressive job of prolific writing / disciplined writing for a young person, but ultimately, they were all invariantly embarrassing.
I took them down because they all suffered from massive rating inflation and I saw them as embarrassing to the site. The writing quality has really improved here and my stories shouldn't have occupied spots in the top 100. I wanted those spots to go to more deserving writers and I didn't want someone's first impression of CYS to be The Order of the Midnight Sun. Let's be honest, it's a great title, and I bet a lot of people read it first.
Yeah, but they were still better than 99% of the other games on the site... And yeah, I think OOTMS was probably the first game that a lot of people on the site read... But reading it made them want to stick around, so you must've done something right! ^_^
Or, perhaps, we'll see a giant influx of registered users now :)
Thanks for the compliment though -- I appreciate you saying that.
... Any chance you might tweak the games, make them 10x more awesome and them put them back? ^_^
That's a really fun thought, and I've toyed with it. I'd really like to and I actually have some ideas for how I'd do it.
Ultimately though, I think that would be a selfish use of my time. It's probably better that I focus on improving the website instead, and I enjoy that too.
... But what better way to improve the website than making super awesome games for everyone to enjoy? ^_^
Fixing the advanced editor time-out bug for one. I hate to think of how many words have been eaten by that one.
Lmao. I was unintentionally hilarious. I had no idea those quotes existed. Man, I was proud of that game when I originally wrote it. Pretty sure Mattias was a name I was obsessed with as a kid, for some weird reason.
