Thanks! We Made It!

Apr 2, 2013 half past nine pm

Well, we pulled together and made it through another April Fool's Day with minimal damage.  I did manage to stay off the Internet for the whole day with the one exception being to pop on to look up some bash shell information, but that site hadn't been updated in 2 years, so I felt safe.

The good news is that I got a lot done on Scurvy Scallywags.  The current plan is to keep adding stuff until April 15th, then the game will go into lock-down for two weeks with the only changes being bug fixes.  Then submit to the App Store on May 1st and 7 to 10 days later it should be out.

I kinda like the comics on this site. Any chance for new ones :P

Looks like LucasArts is being shut down. I'm 28 now and I grew up playing their games, this is terrible news indeed. Feel to share any comment Mr. Gilbert?

Check the time I wrote that and his first tweet about it?

Wouldn't this make it EASIER for Ron to get license to Monkey Island,
and Tim / Grim Fandango? (*not necessarily worth the money or time, still, but just for the fact that there will no longer be an internal team to develop the title)

even if Lucasarts shuts down I'm afraid the rights for the games will remain property of Disney :\

plus, I'm not sure Ron will ever want to do MI3 (or 5 or whatever).
it's too late anyway, the real magic would have been playing Ron's MI3 back 20 years ago, now that we all are in our 30s and 40s it would be simply nostalgic
