Paul moves to Paris in 1950 to pursue art, and while there, he meets other people who also decided that dropping everything to bank on making it big in Paris was a good idea XD.

Anybody who follows my blog also knows that I love talking about indie games and supporting indie developers, so I’m more than happy to give a helping hand.

NaNoRenO Self-Challenge Because I’m Insane

I decided that in order to help me get motivation to function and actually do things, I thought a goal or challenge might help. So I present to myself the NaNoRenO challenge. I’m going to go back all the way to the first NaNoRenO in 2005 and slowly work my way up to the present, playing most/all of the games each year. I intend to go relatively in order, but I might skip around a bit based on length and such.

Goals

  1. Force motivation to do things to counter my clinical depression
  2. Get through some backlog (though this is also drastically increasing my backlog, so)
  3. Increase amount of blog content
  4. Live-tweet about it. I want more Twitter interaction and follower interaction in general, so I thought live-tweeting while I’m playing might help, and it just sounds fun
  5. Attempt to play one a day, but accept that probably won’t happen

Rules

  1. Actually do it

Stipulations

AKA, stipulations I am adding on for my own well-being

  1. Skip most demos. I don’t like playing demos really. If it’s a game I want to play, why play a demo for it? Just get the full version lol. And some of these older NaNoRenO games are so old, the demos mean they just aren’t going to get done. No sense getting invested in part of a story with no hope of finishing
  2. I maintain the right to skip over games with content I don’t like. I don’t plan on doing this often, but if something is insane to me, I’m not going to play it. I might skip very NSFW games as well
  3. Free games take priority cause your girl is poor

*The image is the 2018 NaNoRenO logo that I removed the words from then actively tried to make it look like it was edited in 2005 in paint.
