Project on Hold...Unfortunately. (Please read)
It's really, really, really hard for me to type this up and admit to myself that I need to shelf Eye Candy for the time being. I know people were looking forward to it, and I've come leaps and bounds in terms of graphics and story for it. But it's a struggle for me to work on it. Not because I don't want to, because I really truly do.
And that's the problem.
I started Eye Candy 3 years ago, and in 3 years a lot of things have happened, a lot of good things. But also there's some things going on in my life right now that is making it so hard to work on Eye Candy. It's tied up in so many feelings and experiences from 3 years ago that I just cannot work past while it's hanging over my head constantly. Working on Eye Candy was fun during that time, but recently, after some things have happened, it's become painful to work on. It's emotionally and mentally draining dealing with the things from back then every time I open up the project or start to work on the pixels and art.
I'm so tired of all these bottled up feelings tied up with Eye Candy. I want to finish this game, but because of all the things I've been trying to drag myself through while working on it I really can't. I just can't. I can't keep pushing myself to work on it. It's a pendulum at this point, and it felt like any second it would just crash down on my head.
So. Eye Candy is, until I'm in a better place to mentally and emotionally handle it, on a shelf. I'm going to work on new projects, and with the weight of Eye Candy off my shoulders, I already feel so much lighter. Will I come back to Eye Candy?
Maybe. Hopefully. I don't know.
I'm sorry. I hope everyone will stick around for the next - completed - project that I release even though I've set this one aside.
Thank you for taking the time to read this to the end.
