@Kaowas: Aw man. I feel for everyone still in this position. But I'm glad you enjoyed the game. Thank you for your support!

@ArtisanBreads: I've been making games part-time for the past 1.5 years, so I don't know if "thrust" is the right word... but yeah, it's time to find a job to pay the bills, or suddenly create the next Angry Birds in a month.

Pretty sure that second thing ain't happening.

Looks like I won't be getting this call every day.

EDIT: Hi, I'm David S Gallant. I used to be a call centre employee. It was a very frustrating job, and eventually I made a game about it - I Get This Call Every Day. On January 29th, I was terminated from my employment because of the game. Sorry the original post lacked all of this context. Things were... weird that day.

It's been a while since the original N was released. Metanet Software hasn't been idle this whole time, however; they've been working on N v2.0, which is now available in public beta!

Check it out.

Poll does not represent my choice, so I haven't voted.

I don't have a lot of apparel bearing emblems or advertising for particular games - I ended up with a lot of stuff like that from my year of employment with EB Games, and I dislike a lot of it.

My favourite t-shirt lately was one I procured at the Toronto Global Game Jam last year, which says "Support Your Local Game Developer". I have another one from DARC Productions, a local game-focused audio studio. My most comfy shirt advertises Jeuxly, a Dames Making Games cohort that I helped out with.

There is one item I cherish and wear almost everywhere when weather permits: in 2010, PlayStation hosted a holiday preview event during a time when I was unemployed and just getting into amateur games journalism. I waited seven hours outside of the venue to ensure myself, my wife, and two or our friends would be first inside. To thank us for our support, Jeff Rubenstein gave us all these awesome PlayStation-branded Adidas jackets. They are super-comfortable and I am rarely without it, just as I am rarely without a portable PlayStation device.

@august: Nail on the head, right there.
