It’s been some time since I haven’t spoken here or on the Gamocracy site itself. I am very sorry about that but I really needed to sort many things out before I knew what to say. Since the previous blog entry I have been thinking quite a lot about Gamocracy’s future.
I’ll spare the details but let’s say that, throughout the year 2010, the working atmosphere in the Gamocracy team hasn’t been so good. Nobody’s to blame really but many things have not gone the way we expected, starting with differring visions for the site among us.
It’s not only that of course, but from the moment working at an innovative project isn’t fun anymore, a lot of what made it appealing vanishes at once and there you are left with your crazyness and a lot of risks in your hands.
For the past three months we’ve been thinking and talking about how we could go on, one way or another. It turns out development on the Gamocracy platform is on ice and will stay like that at least for some time. As for myself, I will stay away from the site and community as I’ve done recently. I don’t see myself coming back to it anytime soon. That said, there are no plans to take the site down anytime soon either.
With Gamocracy going the way it is, I need to find ways to make ends meet. I’m not too worried about it, but I need to go for it full time or my rent will become an issue. I’ve started working at other endeavours that should help me do that. Above all, I wish to remain independent and not become an employee again.
Thank you everyone that took part in Gamocracy, one way or another. It was tough and the ending ain’t the happiest ever but I enjoyed walking down that path together with you.
Now let’s go eat that green mushroom!
