99 little bugs in the code,
99 little bugs in the code.
Take one down, patch it around...
256 little bugs in the code.
Any game programmer that reads this will nod there head and say, "Yup. That's game development."
Oh yes. It is Friday the 12th. The sun shines. Clear skies. Birds chirp and summer leaves sway in the gentle breeze. The lab is empty. Because everyone is working from home today. Probably in their underpants. I am*. Just got home from the gym with Zhoom. Ran so much at the gym that I ended up running a bit late for the AQWorlds: Infinity meeting with Warlic and Yorumi. We meet using voice chat on Discord. Which is good news for them. They will never know how bad my sweaty gym clothes smell. Even I could not bare it. Hence my current real-life cosmetic equip situation. Warlic and Yorumi are fixing bugs in the quest system. The big code refactor broke some things. We discovered the bugs yesterday when we were getting ready to make some improvements to the way you get and turn in quests. They are actively fixing the bugs as I type this. Since I am not needed until they are done, I am wondering how stealthily I can switch from my computer to my phone.... put discord on mute... and take a quick shower. On come on. Do not try to tell me you have not done a stealth shower or two. We should make a class which you can only equip in the Inn, which can only level up by taking showers and using the restroom without anyone realizing you are gone. This post just became surprisingly relatable. Anyway, we will be working on the quests all day today. One of my goals is to make the quest flow smoother than the original game. Getting a quest should feel natural. Which means it should take as few clicks as possible. All of the complicated stuff should be done silently & discretely behind the scenes without bother you. Like the shower I just took. That is right. I just stealth showered this post**. It is almost the weekend! May all of your quests and stealth showers be glorious.

** Turns out Discord does not notify anyone when you switch from computer to phone and back. #TheMoreYouKnow
