Anonymous asked: dear sir, i'm seriously enjoying Middens, and before that I've enjoyed Yume Nikki, which seems to be an influence. it seems you are the real deal and you have another similar game in the works. in some ways though, i feel jealous and i feel like putting my own game-creating aspirations to rest because were i to create a game, it would be done with a similar style. it's like, if others can do the same but with more talent and experience, why should i bother? - arctic3005@yahoodotcom
I’ve little doubt in the cheesiness of this pep-talk type sentiment…but does the proficiency of the bear in hunting render all its neighboring creatures purposeless? Since the cheetah is faster than its fellows would it be justice that all other animals ceased to run? Are all the fish in the ocean meager because the blue whale exceeds them in size?

Regardless of whether you believe in reincarnation or heaven or the prevalence of void, you’ll never again experience what it was to be you, on this Earth, under this name and in this life, in this moment—-again. It would be tragic to let any self-defeating attitudes constrain you.
