Thank you for the kind words. Haters are just something extremely common in the videogame industry, as recent events showed. I consider myself very lucky because I’m below the average amount of shit female game developers get on a daily basis.
The more it grows, the sicker this industry becomes. Of course there are always an adorable portion of players that will pour love on your head and keep you going, but the amount of bullying has become quite worrisome. We, the gamers, used to be the underdogs, the geeks that got bullied all the time in school, what happened that made us become the bullies? It’s disheartening.
If your definition of “fails” means “running a 10-person company that generates 1M€/year” I guess you’re right. But I’m not fat either so I’m not sure of what you tried to say.
There are still hiccups with some flags missing because I didn’t have enough time to draw them all in Flash, but no, Polish players shouldn’t be able to talk in EN2 no matter the flag-customization update. I’ll ask Tig tomorrow about it.
I’ve picked up English very early because both my parents were fluent and used it whenever they didn’t want my brother and I to understand haha
It really helps hearing English at such a young age, 5 or 6
Then I picked up some videogames in English, but I really began to dig more into it when I was about 14 and I wanted to do some roleplay in English on some old Yahoo Newsgroups, and that really taught me all the vocabulary and timesets. Then I met a cute Canadian girl online, and we dated for a while, and that taught me how to really understand and speak it in real life (hence sometimes my Canadian accent when I talk lol)Also when I’m not sure about a sentence, I just try to rephrase it in a way that’s more secure to me, or if it’s really unimportant I don’t care much. For important stuff I always bother some English natives friends on IRC to double check haha
Sorry, Tumblr doesn’t allow posting more than one picture when replying to an ask. You can click on the pictures to make them show.
Also we have an Instagram account for Atelier 801, even tho it’s not often updated. I’ll try to post more there.
