I’m back to work after a 2-month parental leave, which is simultaneously great and really hard. I’ll miss spending all day with my family — especially with The Kid™ growing and learning at an incredible pace. But it’s also nice to spend a good chunk of the week building stuff with some of my favourite folks in the world. Both, in measure. That’s the goal.
Before returning from my leave, I put a lot of work into updating my home office. I am so grateful to have a quiet room, away from distractions, that’s (mostly) dedicated to doing great work. I’m not planning to return to an office full-time, for the foreseeable future. I look forward to the studio being an option again but the benefits of working from home are too great to ignore.
I’m still tinkering with my Playdate, off and on. It has been an absolute blast to have an inside look at the development of it over the last year. Preorders have gone live and customers should start receiving production units later this year. I still have a handful of games in various states of completion, but I’m currently focusing on making a Notakto game. It’s pretty straightforward, but fits well with the limited time I have to dedicate to it. More details coming soon.
