I proposed to Maus that we try to do something simpler than we’ve ever done first. I suggested we make a basic visual novel. Just a choose your own adventure style game with music, text, and graphics. Maus was like, “That’s so boring!” but I was like, “No, really, you want to prove we can make something, then let’s make something!” So, Maus and I are going to start working on our first visual novel. We’ll see how that goes.

I have always had this dream. Ever since I read an Isaac Asimov robot story, I’ve always wanted a robot friend of my own. My favorite character is HAL 9000 in 2010: Space Odyssey. My favorite episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation is when Data makes a ‘child’ named Lal. I’ve been fascinated by robots for a long time. The scene at the end of War Games is gripping, Centennial Man is awe-inspiring, and AI is awesome. However, that fascination has never quite spilled into my normal life as I was always too focused on programming and making games. However, I’ve been talking about it for a while, and I’d be more into it but I’m working on another invention.
There’s this thing about simple words that I find peculiar. It’s like a relative of mine who’s life is a mess, quite a bit of it at their own hand. When confronted with a suggestion to go to therapy, they conceded. But when told that they have to take responsibility for her own emotions, they say, “Oh I know I know”. Or, when its suggested that only they can control themselves and no one else, they say, “I know that, I know.”
