Thousander Club Update: July 24th

For this week’s Thousander Club update:

Game Hours: 141 / 1000
Game Ideas: 432 / 1000

Target: 546

There are 47 days left until the deadline for entering a game in IGF 2007: Countdown to IGF 2007

I came down with something earlier in the week, and while I am still suffering from it, it is pretty mild compared to what it was. 102F fever, and then 98.6F the next day? Weird. I now have a nice cough as a souvenir, though. I couldn’t really work earlier in the week, but I think I did a decent job of catching up in the past few days.

The Chicago Indie Game Developer Club met yesterday, and once again I did not have anything to present. Oracle’s Eye Prime is almost at a state that is playable, but there isn’t anything to show yet. I will have more to say on it later this week.

My goal is try to work at least five hours a day for the next couple of days. Assuming I don’t get even more sick, it should be possible. I can make a lot of progress in a a couple of hours. I’d like to add more productive hours to my week, and even one day of five hours of work can make a big difference.
